    My Roughneck micro shovel.

    It takes up little space in my van and it's great for mixing concrete or lime mortar. Working with lime you need to have accurate ratios of sand to lime and I find this tool ideal for it.
    I've had it a few years now and couldn't be without it. Well worth the €20 I paid for it.

    I value all my tools... if they work and do a good job for me, I like em. Even down to the cheap ones like rules and protractors, up to the heftiest ones (power guillotine capable of 1/4" plate)

    However... this is the one that actually makes me money:

    Led lights over anything. Most places there’s a problem on our machines in work are the dark spots and when dealing with lasers there’s never much room either. Rest of the tools are useless if I can’t see what I’m trying to do . After that it’s a Stanley knife never without at least one

    what I have used the most, a creteangle forced action mixer, used for stone/concrete to cast garden statues/bird baths/pots, hundreds and hundreds of tons through it over the last 28 or so years so its earned it keep many times over, worn one drum out and needed a couple contactor coils over the years, welding wise a kempi miniarc mig purely because of its portability.

    I suddenly got some batch fabrication jobs after I made that table, since the customer could see I was serious about accuracy and quality and jigging things up properly.
    Nothing particularly fancy, nothing particularly clever, not even particularly lots of work since it's part time, but it's just a fact.
    If my shop started looking scruffy and the table started looking rough and abused, then the work wouldn't keep coming.
