A @Rush Motorsport the 2nd is handy to keep in the garage 

RivNut gun.   I never knew I'd need or want threaded inserts as often as I do.    

Piers Morgan.  He’s a right tool and if I had him, I’d lock him up somewhere safe and soundproof so no one had to see him again.

I use the GMC unit marketed by Silverline, has stood up to some abuse as I am forever stalling it and it is still going after many years of use. Do not go for the Silverline version though. The price is good and it helps tremendously having a Silverline account, only about £20 so can go through a few before reaching the Dremel high cost..

High lift low profile jack. Dont know why I spent years fannying around with a little one. 

 

Reciprocating saw. 

 

Decent rivnut tool. Still haven't bought one. Still struggling on with the  crappy ebay cheapo.

I recently got this one

You'll have to buy into the Ryobi system as they normally dont come with batteries.

Seeing the different tool manufacturer preferences reminded of this interesting picture of just who makes what...

My cheapo “parkside” from Lidl has lasted years of abuse - despite costing “disposable” money.

Makita cordless impact gun= priceless!!!!

In fact all the Electric tools I bought in the last few years are Makita, no competition from other brands  IMO.

Decent head torch.  couldn't do without.  Recent improved LED technology means they're affordable and bright,  boy I love my head torches.

The company I work for used to be owned by ITW, they own so many companies you really couldn't keep up with them all.  There were over 700! All run independently as well.
