I keep a spare materials bin for scraps to use in a pinch

also for tools for me

pop rivet gun
air compressor with moisture trap to clean up cases and parts
table saw with metal/plastic blade for cutting materials
good vise
multimeter
drill
good set of screw drivers
if you are painting then a good respirator is a must
and if you can afford it then a milling machine might not be a bad idea:D
