I've just filled out my company insurance form, and was amazed to find that my hand tools (mostly Snap-On)came to the best part of 6 grand.
Now granted they are probably the best tools you can buy, and i could make do with cheaper versions, but I do like the quality and the fact that they will do the job.
Do any other CC'ers have a favourite tool/ piece of equipment, that could be classed as a luxury item, that you use for your work etc?

Ermm. Not sure about luxury, as such, but at one job there was a certain RF analyzer that I insisted on using. We had a few that would perform the measurement I wanted (transmission loss over the 14-14.5 GHz range), but I had to have this particular one.
Because my previous job had been at the company that made them.;)
And I had built and calibrated that one.:biggrin:

Yes, thank you Arch;).
I meant in a graphics design, DTP, web site maintenance or controlling -robot-army-to-bring-about-end-of-world? sense.

I always use Knipex sidecutters. They'll cut stainless piano wire and the hinges last for years. Only on my 3rd pair in 20 odd years and that's only coz the new ones were a freebie. The old ones still have plenty of life in them. Also like Bahco adjustable wrenches.

I don't ever remember seeing brown ink, bet it is the base for many discussions and can also 'break the ice' at those times when meeting a new person and the talk is getting a bit stilted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Computers are pretty much about expectation. My G5 and mini-mac are so many times more powerful than the SEIIs and LC's I had back then, but relatively, they're rubbish. I still produce the same stuff though, regardless.

I am a total dinosaur when it comes to puters and gizmos (age thing maybe) but i have just read that the intel pentium?? sound from its adverts is the most recognisable sound in the world! surely not- what about waves crashing or the sound of your baby crying when its nappy is full? this world is mad.
