1) Gun Drilling Machine
A gun drilling machine gives you the capability of fabricating spare parts for a number of different tools that you have. Despite what the name implies, gun drilling machines are used for everything from car parts to oil and gas exploration.
2) Dutch Oven
Did you think that all the DIY tools you should have involve maintenance or repair? A guy has got to eat, you know! Nothing is more effective at cooking food over an open fire than a Dutch oven. You'll want one if you get stuck in a powerless situation. If you've got canning jars, a Dutch oven can help you preserve food for later too.
If you need to transition to a homesteading lifestyle AND you don't have power, then a scythe will help you be able to harvest both grain and livestock. For practical DIY work, you can make quick work out of tall weeds and saplings with this tool when a gas powered clearing machine just won't reach it.
4) Adjustable Wrench
It's nice to have a full set of wrenches, but what happens if you lose the one size of wrench that you need? Instead of ruining the wrench that is a size below the size you need, have an adjustable wrench on hand that will make for a handy substitute.
You're going to need to cut stuff. A hacksaw can cut through metal, plastic, and wood with the right blades on hand. This makes it an essential DIY tool.
6) Socket Wrench Set
If you've got a large project that has a lot of bolts and/or nuts, you can make faster work of them with a socket wrench. Still... keep that adjustable wrench handy if you lose the socket you need.
7) Putty Knife
Most people see a putty knife as the one tool that is needed to patch holes or spreading... you guess it... drywall putty. A putty knife, however can be used to scrape paint, open cans of food, remove nails, and even slice meat.

A claw hammer is like several tools in one, which makes it the perfect DIY tool. The claw end can work like a crowbar on small projects. The hammer end can do some awesome hammering. It works as an effective weapon against unwanted pests. And, on occasion, it can fasten stuff together with some nails.
Pliers are one of those DIY tools that you just can't live without. Pliers can help you tighten down a bolt or pull out a stubborn nail. Pliers can help a guy pull out a hurting tooth when he can't get to the dentist. Pliers can even work as a wrench in an emergency situation!
Though the cocktail might also be considered a necessary DIY tool, we're talking about straight-edge and Philips head screwdrivers.
