Have you ever let go off doing something fun just because you didn’t have the right tools to do it? Do you think that it is going to cost you a lot of money buying tools for a DIY project? Do you think that the tools you are going to buy will be useless after you are done with your DIY work? If any of these questions have crossed your mind, then this blog is going to put an end to questions like these once in for all.
First of all, any tool that you buy for any purpose is not going to become useless ever. You’ll find yourself using it more often than you think you would. Secondly, never restrain yourself from doing anything just because you think you don’t have tools because buying tools is an investment. Given the fact that you are going to use them quite frequently, it’s not a bad investment. Lastly, the practicality covers all the cost.
So, here is a list of “tools which you must have in your toolbox for your DIY’s and why”:
A Quality Box
Before I get to the tools, you should know that if you don’t have a tool box that caters to your needs, you are ruining your tools. I would recommend you buy it before you buy the tools because you are investing in your tools, and you don’t want them to get destroyed just because they weren’t stored properly.
Small but Important Tools
Small tools make all the difference, and they are used frequently. For example, if you don’t even have a pencil in your toolbox, it is going to cause a lot of trouble. Therefore, equip your toolbox with small things like tapes, screwdrivers of different sizes.
DIYer or not, you can’t deny the importance of having a drill at your home. From repairing a small drawer to building an entire TV station, you need a drill. Therefore, a good quality drill has made to our list of must-haves for your toolbox.
It doesn’t matter what kind of DIY you are working on; you are going to need paints for a good final finish. Put some brushes and some basic colors in your toolbox so that you don’t have to go to the hardware store every time you have to create something.
Having one big hammer is not enough. I would recommend you have at least three different sizes of hammers. They are a must even if you are not going to do something hardcore. A wrong sized hammer can ruin all your hard work instead of fixing it. Therefore, I wouldn’t take that risk if I were you.
There is no hard and fast rule about what you should or shouldn’t have in your toolbox. However, some tools are basic and must-haves. So, fill your toolbox with the things you think need as much as you want, but don’t forget the basic tools because you are going to need them one time or another.
