Coach-Net and an american express card!:laugh:

Seriously, I really appreciate this thread, I'm still trying to figure out what tools to put in the Newell. I would add a magnetic extension too pick up those dropped bolts you can't quite reach.

Oh yeah in addition to the magnetic picker-upper I have a 3 pronged grabber for fishing out other things that aren't magnetic.

In addition I carry 1st aid kit, extra fuses, gloves, filter wrench, cable ties and spare bulbs

A lot depends upon you and your skill set. What I have that I do not see there by way of tools which I carry:

Soldering gun & small iron for fine work as well as two sizes of rosin core solder

a corded drill for the times when I need one quickly and it isn't charged

hardware assortment of nuts, bolts, screws (wood & sheet-metal ), washers (common & fender)

C clamps in several sizes

air driven impact wrench

set of combination wrenches and my trusty dremmel tool

I always have a case of ice cold Stella Artois in case I come across something that I can't fix by myself.

A very good list, but think safety First Aid kit, reflective vest, gloves, triangles or flares, and old blanket.
