For a typical DIY weekend soldier, the right tools for the project can save time and money, not to mention reduce frustration. However, assembling tools is not as easy as it sounds, especially considering that changing items appear around the house. Keeping these not obvious tools in your weekend Arsenal will help you solve any project.

1. Hacksaw

Many projects need to cut some. Tomb Raiders, versatile cutting tools, can be used for wood, metal, and even plastic surfaces. A replacement unit with a replaceable blade was selected to avoid buying a new unit.

2. Clamps

A good clamp is useful when you need to glue two objects together or need another set of hands to keep an item in place. C-clamps and bar clamps work for the majority of jobs around the house, while plastic hand clamps are great for smaller projects.

3. Duct Tape

Duct Tape

Duct tape, also referred to as Duck tape, is an essential component for any tool kit. This versatile material is both strong and durable and can be applied to an assortment of tasks. Whether it’s for securing objects together or temporarily repairing a broken item, you should always keep a good supply of duct tape on hand.

4. Staple Gun

The staple guns are very suitable for fastening a variety of materials in a variety of projects, whether it is a house building work or maintenance work. The model is manual or electric and can be used to install insulation, carpentry repair shingles, or even.

5. Flashlight

You never know what kind of environment your next project will take you, and being able to see clearly in low light settings is essential to getting things done quickly and safely. Consider opting for a headlamp or freestanding work light over handheld lights, and select LED models for longer life.

6. Carpenter’s Square

Carpenter's Square

A carpenter’s square is great for ensuring accurate measurements and cuts. This L-shaped tool is commonly used in framing, stairway, and roofing projects, but is also a great straight edge for marking cuts and ensuring a surface is flat.

7. Locking Pliers

Adjustable pliers are ideal when working with metal surfaces. These pliers lock into place and act like handheld vises. They come in different shapes and sizes, including flat and long-nose varieties, with the typical design being straight jaws.

8. Leatherman

A multi-tool is great for quick access to various tools. Letterman can act as a plier, a knife, a screwdriver, a wire cutter, or even see all the palm of your hand. It is convenient for you to carry, especially when going out.

9. Level


Say no to crooked projects. A simple level in your toolbox can ensure that your next wall decoration isn’t askew. Longer levels, like the four-foot variety, are great for bigger projects and can be used as straight edges. For a modern take, laser levels are just as effective as their traditional counterparts.

10. Safety Equipment

Safety should be a top concern whenever you tackle any project. To cover yourself and help prevent injury, your toolbox should contain safety goggles, rags, work gloves, ear protection, and respiratory masks.

11. Power Drill

Electric drill is usually the first thing many people buy, and there are good reasons. These handy devices can save you a lot of time on project and versatility. Make sure the rig is equipped with the appropriate bit, but also consider adding sandblasting, grinding, and blending to expand your drill Arsenal.
