Swanson Speedlite TC131

Price: About $7; swansontoolco.com

Consider this the equivalent of a beater chisel, except with some nice touches—like a knurled brass knob—you wouldn't expect to find on a sub-$7 tool. The readable blade and large vial are nice touches. And even though the head is plastic, it comes with a threaded awl that rests proud of the head—easy to grab.
