I just started using this penetrating oil called Kroil. It works like magic better than PB blaster. It has amazed me when I have a stuck bolt. I still use a ton of PB blaster, and I also started using anti-seize a lot more.

Uncommon:
Kano Kroil
Propane Torch
Step-Up drill

Frequently used:
PB Blaster
Copper Anti Seize
Ratcheting Box Wrench 10mm, 14mm, 17mm, 19mm
4 1/2" Grinder
Cordless Drill Gun

Specialty Uncommon:

Just depends on how much you want to spend. I got mine through amazon just because i need it overnight delivery thanks to prime.
You can barrow mine no need to buy when you just need it for that. I used mine for the cv axle and nut.

My toolbox has every wrench I own except the one I need.  That's under the dog food bin in the garage.

Which ones do you need? This thread is hopefully to help each other so we know what stuff we use on our Nissans.
