This has to be the "most" used gadget in my box.

I also own and use the Starrett and Bosch digital angle/miter gauges, but I'll always have a few of these around

I use a sliding t-bevel in my chassis business all the time, but I have never used on for my trade.

Undoubtedly the Fein. But is it a "gadget" ?

Sure- an expensive high quality gadget that's worth it's weight in gold on those troublesome cuts

I have the smaller version of that- definitly the go to tool for demolition. The smaller one makes a suprisingly good framing hammer as well, although they should have put a split in the tip of the spike to allow you to pull nails.
Now I want to get the full size one as well.

I would go with my speedsquare. I think it is such a cool tool, not cause what it does but because it just looks so cool to me...

Aluminum Carpenter's Pencil sleeve.

Keeps your pencil at hand, protected and even at 2", you can still grasp it and use it until it's a nub.

Your pencil will never get lost again and you'll bring your pencil consumption down noticably.

The handiest tool I carry is a pocket knife. Nothing fancy...I just lost my good one somehow and I felt lost without it. Second to that is my utility knife.
