    Lenox One Tooth hole saw bits. Have you guys tried these?...Awsum. Got tired of sharpening my Milwaukee self-feed bits after hitting just 1 nail

    Laser thermometer for estimating heat work. Not all that useful but the customers seem to have fun playing with it.

    Mini hacksaw for cutting off closetbolts.

    Carbon Monoxide analyzer makes selling new boilers a breeze.

    DeWalt 18v Flex flashlight for me too

                        Other than Bob, who holds a position like myself, how is it that none of you working plumbers did not list a level? If you can properly install plumbing with no level, you are much better then I every was.

                        ps. Don't show up on my job with no level.
