Tools of your trade.
 
I was just visiting the site of my favourite tool in the world. That and my trusty (and well worn) Estwing 20 oz hammer are hard to imagine living, or at least working without.

I don't care if it's your favourite Brand of Pencil and Calculator. Let me see the best of the best in your field of work so I know what to buy if I ever need one.



P.S. My Picquic is ten years old, still has all it's original bits and will go with me into the ground. They'll nail me in my box with the Estwing.

Your best tool is under construction? LOL, same as mine. My custom ultimate robot will be ready by 2020.

I don't really have a single favorite tool because you usually need several to make anything. The one I value most highly is probably my Logan lathe.

OTOH, I wouldn't get far without various pieces of electronic gear on my test bench, and my Hako soldering iron.

TIG welders by Miller, power tools by Bosch, Hilti or Makita and hand tools by Hazet or Snap-On.

This may become my favorite tool. Just picked it up last weekend:

It has a capacity of 16" x 30" but weighs a staggering 5600 lbs. The duct tape covers where a motor overload meter once was. The meter references the filament current draw from the three NL5665 thyratrons in the DC motor control, which I hope to God are still good since they cost $1000 each. I have since found the missing meter on eBay for $25.
