Do you have any tools that you would consider your favorite or are unique in any way? For instance, I have really enjoyed the use of my ten-in-one screwdriver. It gives me two sizes of flat and phillips bit in one package. It also can be used as a 5/16 nut driver or a 1/4 nut driver. If I need an extension on my bit, I can chuck it up into my screwgun. Some one else mentioned on another thread the wire nut twister that comes in some bags of wire nuts. I have really enjoyed using it and it also chucks right up into my ten-in-one. Another of my favorites is my Fluke voltage sensor, the one that has the nose that lights up. It has the sensitivity to differentiate between wires in a j-box and helps greatly to determine if one of them is hot. Anyone else have any neat tools that I need to know about?
A red T-Stripper for stripping stranded conductors sure beats the razor blades and mom's non-serrated tomato knives I used to use as a kid (even though I got pretty good at stripping zip cord with a Gillette without messing up the conductor).
I dig the Fluke voltage probe. I saw one of the building electricians use it to test the sockets below a cooler unit in the company cafeteria.
I'll probably get me one for X-mas. I saw a knock-off at one of the DIY sheds. I think it was either Ideal or Gardner Bender. It looked chintzy and was "Made in China". Didn't buy it.
I have a neat one I picked up at a pawn shop. A 10" crescent wrench, with a 3/8" ratchet on the end of the handle. Made in China, but everyone that sees it does a double take, especially when I have the 'Gator Grip' on it.
My hot stick (volt tick) is great. Mine is a greenlee and it works great. Several of my guys have a new model by Ideal that works just as good.
We've got Milwaukee Hole Shooters with a 30" extension on them that make drilling much faster than a standard Hole Hawg. The Hawg has more torque, but the long drill saves time by either not needing a ladder or not have to move it as often.
I would never want to be without a Dewalt 18 volt 1/2" drill/hammer-drill. Actually all the cordless tools are wonderful and would be hard to be without.
