What's one thing you wish we would make?
Let us know because you never know...it just might happen 😉.

Too many things.
A device to repair a screw/bolt thread after cross-threading.
As a cyclist (albeit, now aging) a set of hex tools but not like I've ever seen so they don't rust out (coating like ceracoat?) and small.
A torque wrench.
Something like "metrinch" tools, where the force is applied to the flat (land) of the surface and not the corners. Instead of 1 cam, I think 2 cams (on either side of the corners) would be much better.
A decent quality hand-drill and pin-vice drill. Better if the hand drill could handle really fine bits, like a pin-vice.
The worldwide standardization of threads (unc, bsw, bea, ....).
This is just 5 minutes but I now have to attend to real life.
thanks and noted 😉

I did think of one other tool for you to look into.
There's a theatre/stagecraft/lighting specific tool, the Ratcheting Ultimate Focus Tool by Stagejunk --- it's been out of production for years now, and is very hard to come by.
A new version or alternative to it would be a welcome thing to the industry, though apparently it's a bit controversial in that it mostly is suited to older equipment such as is used by high schools and local theaters.
Stagespot.com has them for preorder ($175USD) with a lead time of 24 to 36 months? Maybe they are being made but looks like it's a very specific tool. Last drop of tools was in 2017, as near as I can figure it out.
The maker is/was on Facebook (I don't have an FB account and will, with luck, never have one) and his name is Rob. The domain StageJunk.com is active but the website is no longer, after it was hacked. See the last post of https://www.controlbooth.com/threads/whats-up-with-stagejunk.42626/> for the details.
http://www.lightingandsoundamerica.com/directory/entry.asp?ID=SQE5RR> and the email is still live. He has a "vendor" but I don't have any more details at this time. They did not include who the vendor is.
If Peg and the team make one: I'll be down for 2 of them.
