Here is one of the handiest tools I've ever owned. It is a tool that I couldn't have done without when building my jeep... among MANY other projects! It is marketed toward work workers and when I bought it I was doing a lot of wood working. But it is great for great for any time you want to keep something at a certain angle in relation to another object. It has a magnetic base so you stick it to your referance surface (jeep frame) hit "zero" and then stick it to what you are measuring (pinion angle maybe?). You can also zero it to bubble level for use as a digital angle.

So what is handy in your garage?

That is a good one. I've got a real nice one and anytime I'm working with electrical I've got it by my side!

Me either.  My Dremel tool went out a few months back(it was well over 20 years old) and I decided to buy one from HF.  Big mistake there is no comparison.

Most used all around? My Leatherman. I wear one out per year.
At work, My craftsman C3 kit. I use it every day. One tool or another goes in and out of my "box-o-tools" but the rechargeable set is my workhorse.

When Not at work, the torches I use a lot.

In the garage at the farm, one of the most used was a 3" air grinder. Darned handy gadget.

My Gerber multitool, Dremel, and a BFH.

 

If I could get a nickle for every time I used the Gerber I would be able to afford to hire someone to use it for me in 6 months time.

 

My Dremel recently died and I miss it like crazy. Got to get a new one soon.
