I'm going to strongly disagree with the tubing notcher and pneumatic rivet gun. How can you have an article with "must have" tools and then say "yeah, other tools can do the same thing but this one makes it easier".

Plus I once saw Andrew nelson make perfect tube notches in a parking lot with an angle grinder on a 100ft extension cord.

11. a healthy credit card (Hot rod math "...when estimating the cost of a project, double your estimate, add 10% and you're halfway there")

12. lots of space, if you only have a 2 car garage that you share with other uses and you have to move everything around every time you want to work on projects it makes setup, cleanup, etc. 1/2 of your day which in effect doubles the amount of effort required to complete the project.
