Hand Tools

There is not much worse, when it comes to home improvement projects, than starting an activity, only to find that you don’t have the right tools for the job. Honestly, it is enough to drive a sane person quite mad. To avoid going completely insane in the midst of your nest project, try to make sure you gather, in advance, the hand tools you need.

There are several basic hand tools that every adult should own. These are just the basics and you should understand that there are other tools you may need, or want, as well. Still, by making sure you have a good foundation of commonly used tools, you can save yourself from major headaches later.

To start you should own a hammer, a selection of screwdrivers, an assortment of wrenches, a handsaw, hacksaw, electric drill, pliers, vise grips, plunger, a trouble light, tape measure, a level, a square, and a razor knife. The cost to purchase an average quality set that includes all of these necessary tools is likely to be less than $200. Although you are sure to have numerous other things you’d much rather spend your money on than hand tools, it is wise to consider the money you will save in terms of regular maintenance costs and emergency repair fees.

You will save hundreds of dollars tackling repair and maintenance tasks yourself with a good set of quality tools. This means you can save the big dollars for those projects that do not lend themselves to completion by a layperson. Once you have purchased your set of basic hand tools, you’ll need to learn how to use them. If you don’t know how to properly use the tools you own, they are worthless to you and you might as well not even own them.
