For most of us modellers/Diy'ers we have all accumulated a wide selection of tooling, from drills too table saw,s from lathes to routers.
But i'm sure out there in your workshops there is a tool or two that you couldn't live without, or one that is your up most favorite to use when your modelling, so what is it? 

I actually have 2 one i cannot live without which is my tiny metal work Square... which has seen better days and used to be shiny, nothing some oil and wet and dry wont fix.

The other is my finishing plain a little 2 1/2" brass and walnut plant with a razor sharp blade, guaranteed to get everything smoother then a baby's arse.

they are all my favs when I need to use them, but as you say those I couldn't do without are my squares just like yours RR, and my trusty electra bekum band saw.

That question is a tough one!!! I don't have favourites because some of my less frequently used tools might get jealous!! Laughing Laughing Laughing
I do have loads of different shaped pieces of wood with sandpaper glued to them, very useful on my latest project (a 1/43rd scale 1950s Smiths (NCB) milk float)
I couldn't do without my lathe & milling machine, also my 3d printer & scanner get a bit of use now although getting my head around 3d cad is not easy...

No favorites all my tools are essential life would be difficult without them my other half might disagree though however as my son's collection has far surpassed mine I can't be wrong I didn't lead him astray honest.  2thumbsup
