Tools are items which help the player obtain materials, collect and build blocks and fluids, add or remove wire, or help the player move about the environment. Tools are not placed or equipped. They are used like weapons and sometimes have hotkeys. Left Shift is often used to "smart switch" to a useful tool based on what is under the cursor.
