When you think of tools, there are some that it seems that everyone should own. Having a hammer, screwdrivers, and measuring tape on-hand can help you out in more ways than you might think, but if you own a home, are a fix-it person, or like to work with your hands, there are some other tools that you should be sure you have available at any time.
- An adjustable wrench, socket wrench set, and dual sized wrench.
- A metal file.
- A putty knife.
- A bow saw.
- Paint brushes, rollers, trays, and cups.
- Side cutting pliers and needle nose pliers.
- Square and rounded head shovels.
- A power drill and bits.
- A utility knife.
- A step ladder.
- Extension cords.
Don’t let the need for a tool you don’t have ruin your projects. Whether you’re planning a big project or not, having a range of tools on-hand will help you be prepared for what you might have to face.
