12 tools that everyone must have

the tool box

Your friend need to collect the wardrobe? Or you’re married and your wife constantly asking you to fix something? Your child’s bike broke? Of course, you have the tools, right? For many dudes, the Toolbox is just some thing from the Arsenal of their father. So, these days, guys rarely do something with his hands, preferring to pay for that specialist. After all, man must rely on himself. He must have a set of tools and presentation on how to use them. If you’re one of those who have little idea of manual labor, here’s a small educational program: 12 tools that should be in every dude.

Before you buy them, remember

Do not spare money for quality tools. You can go to the nearest hypermarket and buy a set of tools made in China, say, for a thousand rubles. Extortion is a temptation. These tools will serve you long, and then break. Faster than you think. Invest money into good tools that are durable and will remain with you until old age.

One at a time. Moscow was not built, and what you Toolbox not Moscow? Well, you know, no rush. No need to buy all the tools (unless you’re working on some big project). Do not undermine your budget and in a hurry. Everything gradually. Another good way to update your Arsenal of tools is to ask parents the tools as needed. So I started collecting my own collection of tools. And another option that you lent or gave to friends — a nice thing, much better than another incomprehensible garbage.

Hammer

hammer

Nice, solid hammer can be used for driving nails and pulling them. My grandfather actually uses the hammer for almost everything. Pick the most suitable weight to fit for different household chores, but was rather easy, in the event that was convenient to carry it with you. Your grandfather probably was a hammer with a wooden handle, and you don’t have to do it again. Wood breaks easily. Look at something from a synthetic handle. And so, choosing a hammer, it is important to hold in your hand examples: you must keep him happy, not straining. Polybori, take your time.

Flat screwdriver

flat vykrutka

Flat screwdriver has one… uh… blade, which is suitable for mass screws. They are widely used, my grandfather did it several flat screwdrivers. Phillips screwdriver is gradually replacing this one, but do not rush to put him out to pasture: he’s still in the fight. And even a screwdriver can be used to push, poke, and who knows what.
