Weekend Handyman Tools


 
Home Repair
There are weekend warriors who become athletes on Saturdays and Sundays and those that become a handyman or handywoman. They shed their employment persona, don their tee-shirts, blue jeans and haul out their tools in order to fix up their house. Many women and men take great joy and fulfillment in being the one who has repaired and crafted many portions of their abode. If this sounds like something you’d like to embark on, you’ll need an ample supply of tools. Here are some of the basics:

- Tool box: A heavy duty metal tool box will be the perfect caddy to stock hand tools that you will tote around your property. Make sure the one you select is large enough to fill with a good assortment and with enough compartments to separate smaller components into sections. The compartments will keep tiny parts from being lost in the shuffle. - Hammers: A basic framing hammer should weigh one pound or more. This weight will more easily drive nails than a small, lightweight version. A sledge hammer will be appropriate for pounding items such as fence posts and stakes. - Levels: In order to keep projects level, you will need one or more devices. Some examples are water levels, mason lines and plumb bobs. Be certain to use the same item throughout a building project as they may differ somewhat in evening results. - Tape measure: A retractable metal tape measure will be needed for nearly all projects. Larger jobs will need up to 100 feet of measuring, so you might as well invest in one of this size. - Pry bars: There are different types of pry bars which a handyperson will need. These are for prying up old nails, flooring and such. Other names of products in this category are pinch bars and cat’s paws. Check out the hardware store to see which one will fit your needs. - Wrenches: A socket wrench with various head sizes and a combination wrench will assist you with screws and tightening. - Chisels: Chisels come in a variety of widths. It may be useful to stock several sizes in order to select from depending on the project. - Saws: A handsaw will be required for basic board cutting. There are other options such as chain saws for cutting branches from trees and jigsaws for more intricate maneuvering. - Drill and bits: There are options of electrical drills, those that are battery operated and some which operate manually. Whatever your preference, drilling will make insertion of screws and various bolts go like clockwork. - Clamps: A quick clamp will be a necessary item for many weekend warrior projects. Make sure you have at least one clamp in your repertoire. - Sawhorse: Propping boards upon sawhorses will make short work of every building project. Two sawhorses will come in quite handy. - Broom: Don’t forget the clean up! Having a broom in your shed or tool cupboard is necessary to tidy up when the job is done.

Once the weekend handyman or handywoman has gathered a good set of supplies, the projects that they can do with them are endless.
