Table saw crosscut sled. #1 by a landslide. #2 is using a square piece of ply or mdf as a sled for routing the ends of narrow pieces on the router table.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

CROSSCUT SLED ON THE TABLE SAW IS # 1, my 2nd is also on the table saw and it is simply a piece of wood cut for the slots with a piece screwed to it where I can clamp pieces on it to cut a straight edge on any kinda curved board this come in handy alot more than peolpe think,and my 3rd is just a much larger piece of wood on the table saw miter gauge also very handy... About 4 weeks ago this list may have been a little different but after only having My tablesaw handy for 3-4 weeks of redoing my new shop area I have learned a new respect for the ole TABLE SAW

Hi

Because this is a router forum I would say the ski jig and the feather boards by Router Workshop (by Bob R. and Rick R. )

For routers?

Dado jig
Door mortise jig
Angle router sled.
Tenon jig
Mortising jig
Squared "rail" jig (rails and stiles)
Ski jig
Planing jig (large, about 40" across)
Circle jig
box joint jig
(and various specialty fences)

Is that 10? I have more router jigs... and I actually have more TS jigs than router jigs. I think my jigs take up more room in my garage than equipment.
