There are many tools that we should have at home for improvement projects or simple repairs. Here are tools that every homeowner needs to purchase immediately for regular maintenance or project:
Hammer is a tool that we should obviously have. It is useful for pulling and driving nails. It is also useful for tightening two objects together.
Because you already have a hammer, it is also necessary to some nails at home. The nail should match with the size of the hammer. With a smaller hammer, we would struggle drive a bigger nail to the wood. If necessary, nails should sink under the surface, so we can putty to hide them entirely.
3. Flat Bar:
It is essentially a versatile nail pulling tool and useful for any kind of demolition work. Flat bar is also useful when we need to lft heavier objects and it should give us leverage when working in tight areas.
4. Cats Paw:
Cats paw allow us to dig and pry as we might. When we want to pull nails that are deliberately sunken under the wood surface, cats paw allows us to pull these nails efficiently.
5. 2ft level:
We want to make sure that our work is plumb and level when we remodel or build anything. After we finish the job, without a 2ft level we could find that it is unbalanced and looks like a complete eye sore from some distance.
6. Torpedo level:
Torpedo level is essential even for the most basic tasks, such as hanging towel racks, mirrors and pictures. With this tool, no one needs to tilt the head to make sure that our photos are level.
7. Crescent wrench:
There are many types of fittings and bolts, so they will require different sizes of wrenches. Fortunately, with just one reliable crescent wrench we will be able to handle them all with no hassle. Although a crescent wrench may have a bit of limitation when breaking free a fitting or bolt, in many cases, we should be able to achieve what we set out to do.
8. Channel locks:
Channel locks could help us in many situations. As an example, we may have a fitting or rounded bold that we need a huge amount of torque. This should be a situation where a channel lock pliers can be very helpful. The rearward-facing teeth could help us to grip tightly and there are many size options that we could use at home.
Dikes are among the most versatile home improvement tools in our arsenal. They could help us trip wire, cut hard materials and pull nails.
10. Vice grips:
Vice grips can be very versatile if we use them properly. It can help us grip stripped out bolts and pinch together metal objects when welding. There are many sizes of vice grips that we can choose.
11. Needle nose pliers:
In tight spaces, it would be difficult to use larger pair of pliers. These pliers may also have small cutter on their working end.
