These are some nice tools to have when doing a cut out when you need them.
I made these and they worked great. I gave a set to David Mcleod to try. I hope he liked them.

The second head from the left is the one I prefer to use and they just started selling that same head in black by itself for $7.99. I would skip on the $10.00 kit and just buy the heads you want.

JP, would you mind pointing out again which blade works best for you?  It looks like HF might have changed the webpage a bit.

Thanks,

If you have some delicate work to do and you want to keep damages to a minium you can use one of those Fien tools (or knock off) and or a rotozip...

To help keep things clean I use a camp shower. You can hang it in the sun so that the water is warm which makes cleaning up much easier.

I have and use most of the tools listed in most of the posts. I also keep a Zircon Stud Finder to find the studs, hot electrical wires and pipes hiding behind the walls.  I also make sure I bring enough drywall pieces, tape and mud to repair walls that I have to breach. I like to also bring a piece of plywood and a couple saw horses for a work bench so I don't have to reach and bend anymore than I need to.

Along with most of the things ya'll mentioned, one thing you didn't, which comes in real handy at times. A queen catcher.

One thing I didn't see mentioned, maybe because it's not an actual tool - or maybe I just missed it, is knee pads. They are something I added to my tote after a couple of floor cutouts and spending a good deal of time on my knees. They are one of those things that you can surely do without if you don't have them, but they sure make for a much more comfortable job and may save your knees.

I bought a pair that have Velcro straps so they are easy off and on.
After using them once, I don't leave home without them if I may be working on my knees.
Life is but a candle, a dream must give it flame.
