    My favorite tool(s) is a simple 6 in 1 screwdriver with a 5/16" and 1/4" built in nut driver and 6" crescent wrench. The wrench to access the system to install gauges.

    Agreed...with the proviso that early on, it got me into a lot of trouble..but not nearly as much as the trouble it got me out of.

    I have three favorite HVAC tools, aside from this site.

    For refrigeration circuit work, my AK-900's.

    For nut and screw work, my Bosch I-Driver.

    For electrical, my Fluke 116.

    LOL.. yeah right, now if we were in Germany as technicians, you better believe they have a cooler up in the ceiling with them.. Reminds me of my time in germany, visited a german base and shared their range, they had cold ones in hand. craziest thing I ever seen.. On a gun range?. of course we weren't allowed..lol

    It took me several seconds to realize that Milwaukee Light was a battery powered lamp....

    I used to have the M18, a little brighter, but the m12 stick light is bright enough, makes ceiling work alot easier, the metal thingie at the top opens slides up and down the back or can lock, great to hook off any pipes or wires

    I can troubleshoot just about anything with a crescent wrench, 6 -in- 1 screw driver, and a multi meter. Those are my favorite tools.

    My favorite is my Fluke 376FC with 2 extra amp meter modules. Allows me to capture readings on 3 phase equipment with panels secured and record readings as well. The handiest tool I have is my iPad. Connects via the Fluke app to my meters and my gauges. Along with allowing access to technical data and catching up on YouTube at dinner time.
