Bit sets for the win. Srewdriver style driver for much of what I do, 3/8" drive socket for the big stuff. I've got a small CDI torque wrench for the common small bits, and a huge torque wrench plus long 3/8" ratchet handle. Combine that with a basic Park 4,5,6 Y-handle that lives on the stand and I'm super efficient. To make things even easier, I paint a stripe of florescent orange on all 5mm hex tools and bits so I can instantly grab the correct bit or choose the right end on the Y. This is surprisingly effective when you're doing contortions holding a part together and reaching for the right tool that always seems to be just barely in reach. Another plus of bits is that the heavily used 4, 5, 6 and T25 are cheap to replace as they wear out without extra waste. Too many of my friends have tools that should have binned long ago.
