I've found all those "ready made" toolkits have stuff I don't need, and are
expensive for what you get.

Security Torx, straight-blade, and at least one _long_ #2 Phillips.  Be sure
the Phillips ones are real Phillips pattern, not just something that looks
like it.  A complete set of "security" bits, maybe, depending on what you
have around there.

Channel-locks, too.

Sets of Allen keys.

Cordless electric drill?  Handy for driving screws, too.

Chainsaw?  Handy for dealing with lusers....
