    A multi screwdriver. Has to be at least 6-in-1, but my current go-to is 9-in-1.

    I have used this driver almost daily, for ten years. Haven't even ruined a bit. Total surprise. I have plenty of tools with sentimental value (Whitworth spanners, anyone?) and plenty which are beautiful and durable, like the '40s plane I renovated last week, or the cabinet makers' screwdrivers, my neighbour donated recently.
    The stuff you use all the time, that can be relied upon, is 'the best'......

    I love my Dremel, but realistically I've probably gotten more use out of my cordless drill than any other tool.

    Bought in 1976 when I got serious about dirt bikes. Still going strong.

    My buddy bought a 1961 Morgan and didn't own any Whitworth wrenches.
    I'll never again own a British car or motorcycle so I gave him my sets of Snapon Whitworth sockets and combo wrenches.
    I still own one Whitworth socket that is the correct size to fit old Raleigh three speed seat binder bolts.
    Hey, you never know...

    I had a friend who worked at the local Auto Parts store in the late 70's.
    He told me that THiS would give me much needed reach in the tight places.
    Boy was he right!

    My trusty Leatherman Wave plus... as a sailor, I’d never go out on a boat without it (or a camping trip either)

    My Fluke multimeter with an amp probe. It tells me a lot of what I need to know at work. And also will keep you alive...

    It was the same way for me, it's amazing how many dirty dishes one person can accumulate in a day or two.
