    Aside from the standard hand, electrue, pneumatic and battery operated tools, I always carry alcohol wipes,(cleaning surfaces for better adhesion, and removal, also erases sharpie!) , Paintable caulk (adhesive, nail hole filler, waterproofing, leveler, temporary positioning, etc….) Wood glue (it’s not just for wood you know) and last but not least, anti-sieze lubricant, Say you’ve just disassembled something with less than pristine hardware and you have to reuse it, now you can with no regrets! Great for squeaky metal items, helps lubricates and stubborn hardware and great for tools, especially for your metal scrapers and putty knives. Rub a little on and presto! No rust will build up here! I’ve got more but I I can’t give all my secrets away yet.
