    AAA Batteries for the Motion detectors and Remotes. Always needing them and some AA ones to. Hell just get a complete pack of all sizes.

    Lots and Lots of Velcro (roll type, great for bundling wires). Don't forget the 3M removable sticky tabs...and a small level.

    Duct Tape should be moved to the top of that list.

    Set of two or more FRS radios with headsets - great for testing, listening, two-person jobs where you can't holler to each other, etc.

    Here's my favorite:
    http://www.cooperhandtools.com/brand...c=037103491190
    An Xcelite suitcase loaded with nice quality hand tools.

    Quick story:
    My wife loves garage sales, I am indifferent.
    She "dragged" me to one in the country and I saw a barn in the back, which I B-lined to. In the barn were lots of fantastic tools which I gobbled up.

    Bought this tool case (something like $900 list price - I don't think it was ever opened), a 20 ton hydraulic ram body shop frame puller kit (never opened), a 1/2" Bosch concrete hammer drill, an air sheet metal nibbler, a 3/8 inch air ratchet, and a few more morsels
    Price: $75 total!
    Apparantly the owner was a retired tool and die guy.
    Well, it's easier for my wife to convince me to go to garage sales now...

    I am kicking myself for not thinking of duct tape. I could use that to cover up the blinking 12:00 on the VCR. Voila! .

    Rotozip tool so you can cut a hole in anything in any shape. Man I love this thing.

    With my AT004 X10 tester, I have assembled a test kit in its own toolbox with various modules and X10 mini transmitters.

    With that laptop and a spare PCS05 you could inject X10 signals on any circuit and then test back at the circuit box.
