Best tool in the shed ( not human)

Having just saved the worst $300 in my life ( changing springs on my ute), I couldnt have done it without.........

my electric rattle gun.Cost me about $90 on ebay, have used it quite a few times and its prolly saved me rounding off numerous bolts.The only caveat being I'd never use it to tighten anything!
I've just bought a Baja NoPinch tool, but havent used it yet- I have a feeling I'll like it too.

Does the beer fridge count as a tool?

Love my cordless rattle gun, so bloody handy! Rotate tyres on the ute takes a few minutes with it & a trolley jack.

Air compressor is an essential IMO as well.

The thing that gets used the most out of anything is my 3/8 socket set, it's about 15yo now (at least) done heaps of work & still going strong.

I reckon my siddy's would be 25yo easy.
Have all the SAE ones in the garden shed.

I reckon the "T" handles would probably rate right up there on my list, usually the first tool I reach for if space/angle permits.

Let us know how you get on with the Baja No-Pinch tool, very interested.
