Default Great Tool Buys - unexpected awesomeness

So I bought a



and it turned out to be awesome. For $25 this thing rocks. It pulls up screws, rivets, and just about anything off the floor. Oh yeah and it's like a cubic foot in size. Perfect for cleaning up the workarea. And can also be used as a blower.

So i thought about other awesome tools and


came to mind. For $50 at sears, this thing saved my life tons of times. Even took the abuse of getting a pipe stuck on the end for extra torque.


So what other awesome (and preferably cheap) tool are out there?

i have a METRINCH set ive used for about 12yrs. i think i paid maybe $100 for a 60+ piece set. i used to be an auto mechanic and ive broken several of my MAC tools ratchets. my cheapo metrinch ratchet is still a great backup that has never broken! ive used bars on the end of this ratchet to break rusty nuts and bolts loose and it still works great.

Stop braking high torque with your ratchets, and you'll never brake them again.
