DIY or not, we all have a set of tools lying around somewhere in the house. Maybe it was bought for one time use when a plumber or mechanic wasn’t available or was on holiday. Maybe you got it in an emergency. Or, on the other hand, you are a DIY person who prefers to do things their own way with a personal touch of perfection.
Whatever the reasons maybe, getting a tool cabin should be a priority. In today’s world where technology has flourished, so has the durability and ease of maintenance of things. No longer does the word ‘complex’ hold much of a meaning. Maybe ten or fifteen years from now it would be considered difficult to repair or even operate something. But now with the internet close at hand and multi-purpose tools; one can maintain more than half their house repairs on their own.
The continuity tester
Starting off comes the digital multimeter. This nifty device performs the handy job of checking for continuity, really helpful when trying to diagnose if it’s a simple power problem or something far worse. Get one with the beeper, makes things faster on the whole.
Wood working tools
Apart from the basics of chisel, screw drivers and drilling machine; you can also check out some of the heavy weights. Don’t go diving in just yet. You might be tempted to check out those sliding compound miter saw reviews or get a demo on some new drilling machine. Assess your needs and go forward accordingly. But do stock up on the basics at least.
The cut off tool
This is something which will come in handy in a lot of cases. Basically a hand grinding wheel, this device can cut through bolts, mufflers, PVC piping; anything. Just get it revved up (it really revs up; like up to 10,000 RPM) and get grinding. It eliminates the need for a hacksaw altogether.
Electric Sanding Machine
Sanding paper can do the job just right. But why bother getting in such tedious predicaments when you can have the whole process made easier with just an additional machine. It easily cleans up on jagged edges and what not and also doubles up as a file.
Not exactly a tool, but still makes for an important must have in tool shelves. Use prior to painting on metals for wondrous results.
You must have all the above mentioned tools at your home.
