Ohh! A de-buring tool - I have one of those too!

My recommendation is one of these, which is part of an interchangable system.

As a hoe, for loosening the top soil and grubbing up weeds, it is really useful as part of a Charles Dowding No Dig method.

I particularly like this ratcheting crimping tool with 6 sets of interchangeable jaws, as it does an excellent job on most automotive connectors, no more bodged crimping with pliers:


Also looks to be available in the UK under another brand name with an additional set of jaws for BNC cables:

Forklift!

Once you've had one you won't understand how you could ever live without

The deburring tool is great. I was given one by our tool supplier of the day around 42 years ago. Still have it in the drill box. Very useful

I have one of  these which is very handy for use in confined spaces, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sealey-AK6962-4-inch-Stainless-Ratchet/dp/B00K1UNJ52/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Sealey+AK6962&qid=1578388366&sr=8-1, the ability to place it on the fastener and then drive it from the handle is really useful. I often use it with a little Bosch IXO electric driver.

Just realized the one i have is NOT the one I have linked to on Amazon. Mine looks very similar but allows driving from the handle end. This one doesn't. I will try and find a part number on mine and link to it, sorry for the miss-direction. Bought it quite a few years ago and went on appearance not the actual tool.

I will be carrying a tube of chemical metal on future long trips.

We cracked the sump and had wait a couple of days to get it welded in the South of France.

That is one temporary job duct tape is not quite sufficient for Wink

One with a flexible hose so you can get on the prop shaft UJ grease nipples without having to lift the car too high.

Agree with RJ, When I had the business in Dubai, we had a 5 ton forklift and if I ever wanted to get a look underneath the 7 a couple of pieces of wood on top of the forks and up she goes, perfect!

A few others are, Stahlwille torque wrench, chain hoists, a pair of steelfixers nips, a 36" stihl chainsaw, and a brush attachment for my stihl combi https://www.stihl.co.uk/STIHL-Products/KombiSystem-and-MultiSystem/KombiTools/21174-1482/KB-KM.aspx
