A better question may be what tools are a must, in a standard toolbox.
Power drill and acc...
Pliers ( love the snap-lock ones )
A starter than I can think of,
One tool I have come to really appreciate is my 750mm breaker-bar
it all depends on the job at hand, when i start to organize my hobby shop after i remodel it i plan on setting up 2-3 tool boxes with the basic tools for any type of work around the house, ie an electrical tool box, a plumbing box, carpentry and dry wall won't have a box as that stuff will be in the shop. so i guess just two boxes, yes i will have some of the same tools in each box but it will be a grab and go deal, with specialty tools not that far away, work tools are already at work in a bag in my work truck, they don't come home because i don't want to forget them
