    At the moment it would have to be my 18v Milwaukee drill with brush attachment to remove carbon buildup in fryer burner tubes. Although my Olight S1r flashlight is probably a close second.

    Compact Bender Kit w/ Reverse Bending Attachment for 1/4" to 7/8" by Hilmor. This isn't a tool I use everyday but it sure is handy for line sets in a tight spot.

    we are our most important tool. using touch, smell and sight, also listening to the customer will have the system fixed faster then any tool you own.

    My favorite tool or tools for the job is the appion shrader core remover and the 1/2” vacuum rated hose. I’ll hook up a the core remover tools to both the high and low side of the system. And a 1/2” hose to each side, hook my micron guage up to the low side of my core remover tool and on systems 5 tons or lower I’m pulling down to below 500 microns in 3 minutes or less, every time! Now I’ll always purge with nitrogen to get any excess moister out and put it back on vaccumm, but still in my opinion the BEST way to pull a vaccumm, and the only way I ever will. Even bought a 5/16 appion for mini splits! Removing the shrader and using vaccumm rated hoses and shrader core removers is the reason I like Appion so much. Because yellow jacket and all the other brands aren’t vaccumm rated

    My favorite tool is my phone and the internet, but that is nothing special today.

    My favorite real HVAC tool is my AK900 digital gauge set, now in season five, if my count is correct.

    my meter. my meter. and my meter. I have a few of them and i love them all, fluke 902fc and a temp clamp and my fluke 1587 megger... without proper test equipment you can misdiagnose so whatever it is might as well quality so you dont end up buying it again later when it screws you.

    I can't be sure if anyone has posted this, but readily available mobile internet. Having the ability to pull up schematics on site, having the ability to communicate with tech support on a complex call instantly, having the ability to check and verify so many things that we couldn't do just 15 years ago without major time invested in a problematic call. Even being able to run calls paperless. To me, that is huge.
    Edit* Yep, someone posted it a few up.
    I stand by it though.

    Oh, and a wireless display fluke. Check startup amps on a Wye Delta with the panel closed. That's pretty cool, too.

    Torch. Good Crisp Light with no Shadows. Nothing worse than squinting at Shadows.

    Then a close second would be my Leak Detector ,, love spending intimate time with it.

    The primary function of the design engineer is to make things difficult for the fabricator and impossible for the serviceman.
