For my purposes, because it's probably used most often, would be my lighted telescoping magnet.

Today it's my New Departure rear hub tool. The one that holds all the discs in place.
Could have used that yesterday, plus had the bearing in backwards, dang thing wouldn't sit flush in the hub. After what seemed like hours, looked at the diagram, watched the video. Shazam!

A good light. Just replaced 4 overhead fluorescent in my inside work area. Amazing. Seeing is believing. As in what the heck was this guy thinking? ( as in the last backyard mechanic!)

I've kind of avoided posting in this thread because I think @vincev said it best. There are too many tools that I like to use to do the many jobs needed to restore a bike. But in thinking about it more, I think this non-glamorous tool kinda fits into this thread for a very specific personal reason. This Lincoln Lubrigun grease gun is the only grease gun I've ever had all of my life. I believe it was my fathers and I used it growing up for my motorcycles and bicycles and I've continued to use it. Since it's the only grease gun I've ever had, I'm fairly certain that I've used it on every bicycle that I've worked on in my entire life. There aren't many tools I can say that about so this one gets my nod for the favorite tool thread :).
