Every time people ask “what’s the best tool you have that you can’t live without”, engineers will often be bummed out.

Thing is, there isn’t a sole item that can qualify as the only tool they’ll ever need, and they’ll often short their brain circuits asking themselves which of their tools are the best one they have.

That’s why we’ve made a list of the 20 items every engineer should always have.
