My big hammer is called "El Bastardo" He's great for flooring too, and other such jobs. Nice list

My tool list grows all the time. 1/2 in. socket set is a god-send after a 3/8 in. So much more power. That said I use the 3/8 and 1/4 in. sets quite often too.

Can't beat a nice long bar either, invaluable. Yellow Spider, you forgot the most important tools of all for the garage though...
