What tools do y'all have around the shop/house/garage that you couldn't live without. Or tools that you think are the best thing since individually wrapped cheese slices?

I have a couple:

- Drill Doctor (see my earlier thread)
- 21oz ball peen hammer
- Wagon for my lawn tractor (you wouldn't believe how much use I get out of that)

Mechanical fingers, seem like I am always dropping something, if I worked on a bridge I probably wouldn't have any tools left.

Ditto...I've become very spoiled.

To quote my brother, "You can do any job with the right tools, but you'd be amazed what you can do with the really cool tools."

I bought an 18V cordless drill a few years ago. That thing has paid for itself a few times over. Very nice tool...probably my favorite.

Then, there's always Vise-grips!!
