Many people have been asking what are some tools they should have and will need for home improvement projects.” Well, I decided to make a list of essential home tools for the home. Tools that every homeowner should have around, for any project or regular maintenance.
It has a pretty obvious purpose. Driving and pulling nails. Also, combined with a piece of wood for padding, it is also perfect for knocking things into place in tight areas and tightly together.
If you’re going to be using a hammer and driving some types of nails, you will need a nail set to sink the nail heads under the surface of the wood.
A flat bar is a multi-nail-pulling-tool. It is a must have for any demolition work you may need to do before you begin your DIY project. Also, it is a great tool to use as a lever for lifting heavy objects or giving you the leverage you need in tight places. (Ex. lifting appliances to adjust its feet for the level or reaching a nail that you can’t get at with a hammer)
These may be one of the most versatile tools in your arsenal. From pulling nails to stripping wire, as well as cutting hard materials, a pair of dikes is worth their salt.
You won’t be able to get a thing done without knowing whether or not, your work or your cuts and angles, are square or correct. There are many types of useful squares, but as a necessary tool for corners, stairs, checking for square, and marking your cut lines square, the framing square is versatile enough to be the only square you’ll need.
Chisels come in handy quite often. When you need to cut away a small amount of material or set in hinges, you may need to cut away something up underneath an obstacle where a utility knife won’t reach. An assortment of chisels, even merely the ones shown, can be a valuable tool to own.
Some jobs require a small cut or a delicate one. You can’t always just bust out the power tools for simple or tight/sensitive cut. Also, when using power tools for cutting, you may run into breakage and need to cut off a few splinters for a perfect cut.
