If you want to live off-grid you need to be able to do shit yourself. Which means you need to have a tool for every job. Personally, Im of the "I can make due with a few core hand tools" variety but I'm finding that more tools is better.
They don't spoil. They don't run off. And if you take care of them, they pay dividends in the long run. Worth buying quality tools the first time and taking care of them.
Here's a list I found of recommended tools from: Off Grid World. What do you think? More? Less? Any suggestions?
Again, this list is from Off Grid World. But what do you think? Did they cover them all? Do you have all these?

Founder of Good Old Fashioned, Page has spent over 7 years researching off grid and sustainable living techniques to design one master project: A self reliant homestead in New Mexico that takes into account shelter, water, fuel, food, waste management, heat/cooling, and electricity. He is putting all his notes online open source for public use so that anyone can follow his plans to building their own autonomous, self-reliant homestead.
