What tools can you NOT live without on a regular basis?
Grease gun, wrenches and sockets, screwdrivers and pliers, and the ever popular adjustable wrench.
Ditto along with:
Air compressor - good for keeping those tires properly filled and good for blowing out debris. Air rachets and impact guns are nice too.
5-in-1 paint tool - good for scraping decks.
Deep well socket - A 3 inch tall socket makes for a good tool to measure the deck with. Both side to side and for pitch.
Some sort of jack - Besides in the shop, you should also have one in the truck.
A really big honking HAMMER!
My 1/4" drive socket sets and 6" extension, I use these more than anything in my box. Without these I'm like a fish out of water.
A quality 3/8" drive palm-ratchet sure comes in handy for moi.
1/2-inch Torque Wrench with sockets.
Screwdrivers: "Klein Tools"
#1 Tool: "My Leatherman"
My Leatherman multi tool saves alot of trips back to the truck just for simple things.
Right on Restro. !/4 inch straights, flex and hex in metric and standard, torx and square. Add in a quarter drive air impact and ratchet, gear wrenches in metric and standard. I would guess about 80-90% of my work is done with these.
