Alright guys......I had my trailer stolen several weeks back....with about $15,000.00 worth or tools inside. After weeks of going back and forth, I finally got a check from the insurance company for the trailer and most of the tools...but my question is this: What one tool would you definitely go back and buy again? I am not talking about miter saws and nail guns...but more like something that some folks may not have, but that you have found is well worth the money. I am going on a big spending spree at the Tool Shed here in Greenville, and I know there are several tools that I owned that I don't plan on replacing.....so I am wondering what I should buy instead. Any ideas??

I have two Joseph Kihlberg pneumatic staple guns. They shoot a paper size staple at 600 rpm. You ain't ever seen housewrap go so fast. $6.00 box usually does an average ranch. Way cheaper than button cap gun nailing.

FEIN SUPERCUT Not the cheaper multicut model. Guaranteed you will never regret it and won't believe the number of things and situations you will end up using this tool for. Wish I'd bought one ten years ago.:thumbup:

Festool T15 drill with the attachments. It is incredible the versatility of the different chucks (90 degree, offset, depth-stop) for getting into places. Also, it handles everything up to when you should be using an impact.

A tape measure.

And your own damn pencils.

(Sorry, can you tell what I dealt with today)
