Top 20 Tools in any Shop

Hey Guys,

Thought this might be a fun thread to start...maybe not. But here it is:

What would you all say are the Top 20 most important tools that you couldn't operate without in your shop? (Not talking about landscaping tools like rakes/shovels/mowers, but shop tools that help you maintain the equipment your business relies on...ie, wrench set, ratchet set, air compressor, jack stand, etc.)

Lets see what you all say!
