Tools Every DIY Enthusiast Needs
If you’re a DIY enthusiast, you’re going to need a well-stocked tool kit. Different jobs call for different tools. Therefore, if you want to ensure you’re ready for anything, you’re going to want to invest in a variety of tools.
To help, below you’ll discover some of the top tools every DIY enthusiast needs.
Hammer and Nails
With the sheer number of different tools available, it’s easy to forget about the basics. All DIY enthusiasts should have a hammer and a selection of nails ready to go.
Not only are hammers useful for getting nails in and out of objects, but they’re also great for breaking things up such as plaster wall.
Experts recommend choosing a 16 ounce hammer which features a claw as well as a smooth head. This is because they can be used for both heavy-duty tasks, as well as more delicate ones. Along with your hammer, it’s also a good idea to have a selection of different size nails.
Impact wrenches are most commonly associated with mechanic jobs, but they can also be used in many home renovation tasks. They’re used to deliver a high torque output, meaning they are more powerful than standard wrenches.
The power is mostly used to tighten or loosen lug nuts. These clever wrenches can also be used in a wide range of tasks such as changing tyres.
There’s a number of different types of impact wrenches available. So, it’s a good idea to look at the different ones available from companies such as SGS before choosing the right one for your projects.
Another basic tool that’s easy to forget about is the trusty tape measure. Many DIY tasks require accurate measurements so you’re going to need a good quality tape measure.
It’s best to choose a retracting and locking tape measure at least 25-foot long. That way, it will be large enough to measure any space. You can use this type of tape measure to measure kitchen cabinets, or even the space located between power outlets.
A Good Toolbox
Finally, as well as actual tools, you’re also going to need a good quality toolbox to keep them in. This will help to keep your tools organized and easier to find when you need them.
Look out for ones which come with lots of different compartments to store a variety of tools. You’ll only need to use it for the tools you use most frequently.
