    I ve got a few tools i like, my milwaukee drills are great, and a few i think were a waste of money. Like my bosch 12v multi tool, the battery falls out as soon as it starts vibrating. The new tool pouch, i ve just bought has made a massive improvement to the way i work so I was just wondering what is the best tool you have for making your life easier?

    I too love my Milwaukee kit, but other leading brands are just as good really.

    A decent headtorch made a massive difference to my daily work, and still does.

    Most useful tool as a self employed electrician ? Hate to say it but probably my phone.
    It's my mobile office for calls, texts, and emails, it's a camera to keep record of works, it's a diary to enter details of appointments and work done, it's a torch for when I don't have my headtorch, it's a calculator for quick on site reckonings, it's a technical library with all the PDF files I have on there, it's a tool for looking under floors and in walls using the video and camera functions, and a satnav for looking up callout locations.

    I like my Bosch gear, just added the GSB 162-2 RE to the stable and it's mean... scary, but mean :)

    In terms of making my life easier, I got sick and tired of lugging around a big tool bag so I got myself a Toughbuilt Master Electricians Pouch and I've got what I would call my daily carry in there. So much nicer than a big bag of tools.

    Have to be the multi tool, with a diamond blade it can do chases and back boxes with relative ease in most walls. cuts nearly everything with the right blade. from wood, plasterboard through to stone and tiles

    Goes without saying you keep it clean. Goes all fusty otherwise.
