The "things and tools to have" depends on what you want to do. The most cost-effective solution, until you know your own needs better, is to buy materials and tools only as you need them. That avoids your wasting money on things you _don't_ need, letting you spend the money on either getting higher quality tools (which makes a difference) or being able to afford more supplies for projects (which also, obviously, makes a difference).

Yes, this means that you may need to go shopping before starting a project rather than being able to throw it together out of what you have on hand. That isn't necessarily a problem; each trip to the store can be an education in what other tools and materials are available that you might not need now but could use in some future project.

The world's best table saw doesn't help if you want to do electronics. The world's best soldering iron doesn't help if you want to work with plastics. Decide what you want to do, decide how you want to do it, then get what you need.

Whew. That's a big question.

I see your name is copper tube. Well, based on your chosen screen name... you need a propane torch, plumbing solder, flux, Teflon tape, copper tubing, a tubing cutter for each size of tubing, pliers, wrenches, fittings (both solder and screw type, even some pressure fittings are good to have, gloves, (leather or other modestly ablative) , sandpaper, a set of good steel and or brass bristle brushes, and tube benders.

Well, you _could_ make one with nothing more than a knife.

Tools generally aren't about making things possible -- they're about making the task practical, and ideally easy and pleasant and precise.
