my youngest brother worked in a clothing store about ten years ago and
found a piece of heavy duty pipe, triple chromed (used for clothing racks)
that has served well whenever i needed some extension.
a set of dental picks is my version of the machinist's scribe.
the big hammer is well known on the list, often referred to as "the hammah"
or BFH.
another nice tool to have when tweezers aren't quite enough is a huge pair
of slipjoint pliers.  leverage with a bite!
i call mine "big bertha", the only tool i've named.
my other brother refers to them as "the nipple pinchers"...
