[url="http://thottbot.com/v3371800"]This[/url] post by TurboPiPP is one of the better posts I've found on the topic of engineer specialization:

160 Discombobulator Ray (all can use)
155 Ice Deflector (all can use)
100 EZ-Thro Dynamite (all can use)

lvl52 Tranquil Mechanical Yeti (quest) (all can use)

They both can make lots of bombs(not included here, cause its alot), but goblins got a few bombs of their own as you can see.

If you wanna make things to sell to everyone, gnomish or goblin doesnt matter. Cause the speciality of those, only have things to sell to other engineers, not anything for "average joe".

The most common things while lvling engineering seems to be scopes/guns/bullet(about 63% of what "joe" can buy from you, are for hunters mostly).

There is a few novelties to sell though;
Voice Amplification Modulator - Gives 10% less time on silence or interupt effects.
Steam Tonk Controller - The user controls a steam tonk, and can fight other steam tonks. Ex. a guild can arrange steam tonk competitions with a gold price for the winner.
Lifelike Mechanical Toad - Toad pet
Discombobulator Ray - Transforms the target into a Leper Gnome for 12 secs

Pro's for goblin (things only goblin-engi's can use):
Foreman's Enchanted Helmet - +48 Stamina, +30 Intellect, +10% Stun Resistance, +36dmg/healing done by magical spells and effects
Foreman's Reinforced Helmet - +30 Agility, +48 Stamina, +62 attack power, +10% Stun/Disorient Resistance
Goblin Rocket Launcher - Trinket with +45 stamina, and fires a powerful rocket at the enemy that does 960 to 1440 damage and stuns them for 3 sec. ..and knocks you on your ass.
Goblin Dragon Gun - Trinket witch deals 61 to 69 fire damage for 10 sec to all targets in a cone in front of the engineer using the weapon.
Goblin Bomb Dispenser - Trinket witch creates a mobile bomb that charges the nearest enemy and explodes for 315 to 385 fire damage.
Goblin Mortar - Trinket witch inflicts 383 to 517 Fire damage and stuns the targets in a 5 yard radius for 3 sec when used.

Pro's for gnomish (things only gnomish-engi's can use):
Gnomish Battle Goggles - +21 Stamina, +100 attack power, +28 critical strike rating
Gnomish Power Goggles - +21 Intellect, +59dmg/healing done by magical spells and effects, +28 spell critical strike rating
Gnomish Poultryizer - +45 Stamina, turns the target into a chicken for 15 sec. Well, that is assuming the transmogrification polarity has not been reversed...
Gnomish Alarm-O-Bot - Summons an Alarm-O-Bot for 10 minutes that occasionally sends out a pulse that detects nearby stealthy or invisible enemies
World Enlarger - Enlarges the entire world for 5 min or until you attack(in other words, you shrink)
Gnomish Death Ray - Trinket witch charges over time using your life force and then directs a burst of energy at your opponent
Gnomish Battle Chicken - Trinket witch creates a Battle Chicken that will fight for you for 1.50 min or until it is destroyed
Gnomish Goggles - +9 Agility, +9 Stamina, +9 Spirit

So, the choices you do have to make;
[Gnomish Battle Goggles](leather) or [Foreman's Reinforced Helmet](mail)?

[Gnomish Power Goggles](cloth) or [Foreman's Enchanted Helmet](cloth)?

[Gnomish Poultryizer]("sheeps" and silence casters) or [Goblin Rocket Launcher](does dmg)?

[Gnomish Battle Chicken] or [Goblin Bomb Dispenser]?
(I dont bother with comparing them too much, you can see in the lists what they can/cant do)

Well, I've summarized it all for you, so you should be able to make an educated choice now anyways. Good luck with your engineering!
