TOOLS YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT
Whether you need to fix your car, a broken pipe or your roof, you will need tools. Here is a list of basic tools you should have on hand.
• Wrenches: A good set of wrenches, both standard and metric, in various sizes should always be on hand. Although adjustable wrenches will do in a pinch, nothing replaces a regular wrench.
• Pipe wrench: Sometimes called a “monkey wrench,” this wrench is a lifesaver when trying to repair a broken water pipe, because it is designed to fit pipes and pipe fittings.
• Hammer: Make sure you have a good claw hammer, not one of those “dollar store” specials. You want it to last. Believe me: You will probably use it often.
• Screwdrivers: Keep handy some good, old-fashioned hand screw drivers in both Phillips and standard configurations.
