Default Tool Time

We must all have a tool we use all the time or a time saving device we can all recommend. Tell us your favourite tool (keep it clean)

For the last ten years I have carried a Leatherman Crunch. This is the one with the locking pliers. I repair old window systems from medievel to 1960s steel windows a must for all engineers or on the spot gunsmithing.

Whats Yours ?

Being that I used to be a motorcycle mechanic for a living, most of my tools are Snap On. The one that I use the most simply because it is such a time saver is the "Turbo Handle".

I'm never without my Leatherman Core. It's like having a toolbox in your pocket. I broke down on the side of the road 1 time (hose), and got it running with nothing other than a new hose, some water, and my Leatherman.
Sometimes you earthlings REALLY amaze me!

The calculator on my ipod touch has served me well, but my abacus will work without batteries. (accountant)

This, with about 20 years of banging around on it. The most useful pocket knife I've ever owned.

In my garage I think my favorite tools are my gear wrenches....I have over 15K in Mac/snap-on tools and I find myself using those gear wrenches all the friggin time. Just too handy.

Other than that I don't really carry a pocket knife/leatherman or whatever. I have a big plastic rubbermaid type box that I call my magic junk box. It rides in the back of my truck all the time, unless we are road tripping with the wife's Yukon, then it gets tossed in there.
I would list all the junk in it but I can't even remember it all....would probably be a shorter list of things not included.
