My PACE MBT station (iron, desoldering gun, smd tweezers), my Knipex dikes (diagonal cutters), Xcelite precision screwdrivers with Torque Amplifier!, Siemon STM-8 cat5 tester, and my Spec Tools Skewdriver set. I swear I use that thing every day.

I've used several "2 in 1" wire cutters - strippers for more years than I care to recall, on my 3rd set now, the quality is only passable, but these are the tool I grab first when building or repairing anything. just turn round in the hand to strip wires

My 10€ multimeter...
Smacked the LCD but got another from an old one and it works
2 years ago i bought soldering iron for only 5€ it looks basic but can handle any job even soldering tiny smd's like soic24 and so on...
Homemade tablesaw with anglegrinder under the table so i could cut anything with extreme precision.

Dremel... i had one but now i dont, i think it was just a bit too weak for my gigantic hand.

But i got lots of pointless tools too...
