    Here is my list...over the years these tools havent failed me

    Screwdrivers - Klein...period!

    Meters - Fluke (Just don't want to bother trying another brand...)

    Pipe wrenches - Rigid and Rothenberger

    Manifolds - Series 41 YJ and Imperial 4 valves

    Gauges - Digi-Cools and various analogues...I love my brass gauges and series 41 manifold for service work...

    Absolutely

    I was thinking about melting them all into a big block of yellow and black goo.

    maybe make a giant Klein Marble.

    DPSwitch,

    been at it 14 years...I just love the feel and the fit of Kleins...not many others make their way into my pouch.

    I do Commercial A/C & Refrigeration work so the electrical/control side is big for me....I do have a collection of Klein control screwdrivers...tips just snap of.....when prying ****!

    I like the cooper temp meters- you can actually send them off to be "officially" calibrated -industrial quality.

    I got a vapco nutdriver to replace the malco one- smaller diameter handler but shows no wear like the other. I'd wear the malco out in 3 years.

    Companion sucks hard. I tried one of their cresent wrenches- was so crappy I lost it in one or two days and said "good, now I can get a good wrench"

    I liked my rothenburger tubing cutter- f\shorter than the blue point/snap on ones. Did up to 1 1/8" tubing.

    Rigid pvc cutter, love the heavy,solid feel of it.

    My new testo manometer I won from the tools contest- freed up space in my bag and it is sooo cool.

    Me and my son put in an oil fired furnace and a/c a couple of years ago...you probably know where this is going. It was cold out so we fired up the furnace. I told the HO you may smell an slight odor ..sure enough slight odor but instead of going away after a few min it got worse and smoke started coming out of the registers. We shut it down pulled the front of the plenum luckily there was room to lift the coil up and remove the craftsman screw driver. We didn't take it back to sears. HO was never the wiser. LOL
