    Default I CAN'T LIVE without...

    I figure this is pretty relevant to most people. Now I can already see this turning into some kinda EDC type deal - but really there are lots of great things that you use everyday to make your job easier.

    I'm thinking we can put some good thought into specific "specialty items" that wouldn't necessarily be on an A&P school tool list. Whether that be a brand that stands out above the crowd or just a nice convenience item that end up in your pocket right away in the morning - I'll let you decide.

    I have my own list that I always recommend to new mechanics and I'll get my post up once I have some pics (cuz seriously... pics or it didn't happen amirite?). Feel free to include tools, lights, workwear (jackets, boots), pens, sunglasses... Whatever you use that you just CAN'T live without. I have all my tools that I "can't even" without in a toolbox that goes home with me everyday for on call - that will be the subject of my post.

    I second that one. I built a new handle for mine when the original broke. Wish I had a new shank now!
