    Assume everyone already has the basics, lets see the out of the ordinary ones that people may not have thought of adding to their toolboxes. Post some of the tools you couldn't live without.

    My first suggestion is the Vise Grip locking wrench: Unlike traditional VGs these ones really grip bolts and nuts without possibly slipping.

    15" Snap On 1/2" drive ratchet.
    picked mine up at a pawn shop and it comes in handy all the time as a breaker bar but better cause you don't have to take it off and reposition it.

    Any tools, I delv in carpentry, auto, electrical, welding, painting. Lets try and keep it to the unusual though "metric" is not an acceptable answer lol.

    Dremel
    Handheld finishing sander
    Part retrieval magnets (yes, plural...grumble grumble)
    Allen wrenches
    Various-sized crescent wrenches
    Rubber mallet
    Compressor and air tools (ratchet, impact, and tire gauge/pump are the most frequently used)
