Yes, when you can't see your car in the garage.

I'm gonna cheat a little and go with a multi-tool, my Swiss Army Knife. It's the only tool I use every day, multiple times per day.

I carry a Leatherman from Woot and use it multiple times a day.

@lordwoot: That simply means you use your tools to build a bigger garage!

Since I bought my house, the answer is no. If it's called a tool, whether it'd be hand, power, corded, cordless, for the garage or for the kitchen, it's been finding a way into my home.

As for what's been the most useful ... the Milwaukee Sawzall. ^_^

My multi-purpose screwdriver is my best friend. This one has all its attachments magnetically locked in the cylinder of the driver end. It's hard to describe unless you've seen it. Irwin is apparently the manufacturer. Those drivers that have attachments that live in the grip or are wedged into the handle do not even compare.

@narfcake: My recip-saw has been extremely useful. I've managed to accumulate about 10 different blades for it and all get used on a regular occasion.

My most useful tool though is my cordless drill. I've put that thing through the ringer and it keeps on keeping on

I read this as the stereotype tool, i.e. cast of Jersey Shore. In which case yes.

@mokel22: !!! YES!! I Was scrolling down stonefaced asking myself. "...seriously? no jersey shore jokes?" Lo and behold saving it with the last comment! You have restored the faith I almost lost in deals.woot!

My best tool?
My brain.

With it I can imagine and make almost any other tool I need or use what I have in creative ways.

A Milling Machine is the only tool that can recreate itself.

I am not sure if I can determine which of my tools I would call the most useful... the Most useful tool is the one that gets the job done when I need it done.

When I need to weld, then the millermatic 210 is my best tool. When I need to cut steel, its the plasma cutter. when its checking cylinder compression, its a compression tester.

I have 3 basic tool kits, depending on what I'm working on: there's the electrical/computer/networking kit. there's the car mechanical kit, and there's the woodworking/plumbing/home repair kit.
