Looking at my workbenches I was wondering which tool I use most.
It's pretty easy to work out because those I use most are left lying on the bench and not put away.

Here's what I short-listed: Hammer, shifting spanners, socket set, several screwdrivers, vice grips, pinch bar, pliers and side cutters and a hand drill.

This should be easy, I thought...and it was. Here is the clear winner:


Used frequently every day. And, I bought it on eeebay.

my dad told me years ago that only alcoholics drink from tallies hence why he had a few in the fridge

Another vote for ratchet spanner, I even bring it with me to the mechanic to make his life easier when undoing the nut on the side of the radius arm where mushroom bushes are...
The most used is.. hmm... maybe the measure reel :)

Without a doubt ratchet spanners. Wish I'd had them years ago....

x2 although my mechanic mates reckon they are for people who cant use spanners but i just put them back into their places with a few words about their dismal award wages

i look at what i use most when im working on my car, or working at work (which is a rarity on occasion), and its everything in my tool pouch

insulated screwdrivers, ratchet spanners, pliers and a 12" shifter (otherwise known as my 12" hammer lol)
