Do-it-yourselfers can only work more effectively and have more fun at work with the right tools.
Quickly screw together the new shelf and attach it to the wall: No problem – if you have a drill at hand. But do-it-yourselfers are in a predicament without a well-equipped workshop. Although they are pretty decent now, multifunction tools will give: An all-round machine that does all the work, but that does not yet exist. A small tool collection is, therefore, necessary.
Must have tools
Lucian Grey from Band-saw.com says the basic equipment of the home workshop include:
- Hammer drill
- Cordless screwdriver
- Orbital sander
- Side cutter
- Screws and bolts in different versions
- Different types of nails
- Folding ruler and tape measure
Costs together – depending on the service and manufacturer – from 300 dollars. If you dare to undertake larger projects more often, these are also worthwhile:
- Circular saw
- Paint sprayer
- Hot glue gun
- Miter saw
- Hammer drill
- Angle grinder
- Electric planer
- Air Compressor
Tools for DIY enthusiasts: the right choice
Electrical devices should be double insulated. Try out how the drill rests in your hand: Is the handle ergonomically shaped? Having a second will help you hold and guide the machine even better. Ask if you can test the device. Is it easy to use? Are all parts securely attached?
Good machines pay off in the long run. The more often a device is used, the faster it pays off. Cheap bargains often turn out to be expensive in retrospect. The consumer advice centers recommend against buying cheaper equipment. Because these make more noise and usually don’t last long, they consist of brittle material and sometimes even contain carcinogenic substances. Sometimes they have a fake seal of approval.
