Choosing Tools for Your Toolbox: A Guide
If you have never done much with tools in your life, then it may come as surprise that there are sev-eral different types of hammers. Knowing this is important, because you will want to keep at least a few different hammers in your home toolbox.
Hammers vary in size, and in shape, and even in the intended usage. The type of handle will vary even as the business end of the tool will not always look the same. Starting with the basic claw foot ham-mer and moving on to hammers that you can use for repairing drywall, it helps to understand how each design makes a difference.
Your goal is to start with a basic set of hammers that are commonly used for multiple purposes. Aug-ment those with hammers designed for more specialized functions. That will ensure that no matter what type of home improvement project comes along, the right type of hammer will be within easy reach.
The days when having a single screwdriver around the house was enough are long gone. Today, you will need screwdrivers that vary in size and with different types of tips. There are even some that are battery powered and come with multiple tips. Investing in a decent set that covers all the bases will make it much easier to always have the right one on hand for any home repair job.
Stocking Your Toolbox
Don’t think that buying a few different hammers and screwdrivers will be enough to complete your collection of essential home tools. There’s a lot more to the story than that. In order to stock your toolbox appropriately, it’s important to think about what you would need to take care of all sorts of household situations. That includes just about everything from dealing with a leaky faucet to dealing with a window that no longer opens and closes properly.
