weller led solderingWeller LED Soldering Iron

While still considered a hobbyist soldering iron, the LED lights that are build right into the iron make it easy to solder in those dimly lit areas. For the price, why not get an iron with lights built right in? $20-$30 BUY

If you are the type of person that likes to have a knife on yourself at all times yet hates having too many things in your pocket, the Minimalist might be the knife for you. It is small in size, is easy to horizontal-carry, and can handle most of your daily cutting needs. $25 BUY

Milwaukee just recently started making screwdrivers, but in my opinion they are off to a good start. They make a good set of general purpose screwdrivers that would be handy for either Contractor or DIY'er. $15-$50 BUY

milwaukee led lightMilwaukee LED Cordless Lights

A good bright cordless work light was hard to come by, until Milwaukee Tool came out with their 12V and 18V cordless LED work lights. They are amazing and put out a ton of light, plus they are cordless so you can use them anywhere. $80, $100 BUY

Skil-Mag77LTSkil MAG77LT

The Skil 77 is one of the most popular worm-driver circular saws you will find on the jobsite. To make the saw even better Skil lightened it with magnesium alloy to make it more comfortable to use. That wasn't enough though, because they lightened it again, made further improvements, and gave us the MAG77LT. $210 BUY

festool-carvex-jigsawFestool Carvex Jigsaw

Festool built what is arguably the most advanced jigsaw, with LED strobe light technology that visually freezes the movement of the jigsaw blade so the user can make the most accurate freehand cuts. $350 BUY
