Default Most useful home tool

This is a "Garbo" special.
I just finished doing a demolition on our main bathroom /shower followed by our tile guy who came in and worked his magic.
I found myself retrieving my "Rotozip" twice while doing this job. It is a very handy little tool, and I wonder what tools you guys "go to", in times of need ?

I used it once to get behind the outside shower door frame and cut off some screws, and one other time to cut a groove or slot in a rounded off screw head, to get it out.
It has bailed me out many a time.

I must always know where my hammer, "beater screwdriver" and vice grips are located... with those, I can pretty much simulate the "right tool for the job"...

well we have been useing a lot of the tool that doesnt osclate or recipercate its the one that just vibrates back and forth very fast to cut/saw thru anything. main guy has the one he got from harbor freight and we have used the hell out of it, to cut tile, sheet rock, plaster, trim, cut pices of plywood the final special cut, pvc pipe,.... all kinds of time we have used that cheap tool and i was not too sure of it when he broke it out but now i swear by it and not at it lol
