Recently, I have visited a hardware near to my apartment to look for basic tools that I can use for my room. While browsing their tools section, I thought of buying a set of tools for my house in the Philippines, too. Well, we already have some but I am thinking of completing our tool box in the house. I think we need more items like electric drill, plunger clamp, vise grip, crescent wrench, needle nose pliers and utility knives.
Keeping a well equipped tool box is a must in all houses. Not every repair works in the house must be done by an expert. Some basic handyman jobs should be done by the men in the house. For this tool requirements, I think that it is also best to look for some quality tools that could last a life time. We maybe tempted to buy those cheaper brands but these wont last long and would be a waste of money. I think we have to start by getting the basic tools first, then move on to other not so important tools later.
It pays to be ready during emergencies and having all these basic tools in place will help us do our handyman jobs with ease and comfort. A reminder though, be sure that we know how to use these tools before buying them. :)
