Should I Buy My Own Tools

Jul 3, 2008
There is no secret that tools cost a lot of money, but when it comes time to do a job it is nice to have the right equipment. Many times, the only difference between an amateur handy man and a true professional is the equipment they use. It is so much easier to do a quality job on a project when you have the right tools.

Usually, the amateur will make do to a sub-standard tool that will give him a sub-standard result. The professional will invest large amounts of money to make sure he has the right tool. This usually means he puts out a much nicer product.

When it comes to making repairs around the house or working on a project that requires tools, you have three choices. The first choice is you can look in the phone book and call your local handy man. The difficulty of the job determines how much expertise is required. If you are dealing with some kind of electrical or plumbing problem, it is probably best to get a professional.

The next option is to use what tools you have and do the best you can. This is fine if you don't need great results. If it is not that important of a project, this is not a bad option. The worst thing that will come out of using your own tools is an upset wife.

The last option is to pony up the money and buy your own tools. I personally think this is the best choice for most people. One of the major factors of making this decision is if you are a home owner. If you are, chances are you are going to need the tool again somewhere down the road. The next time you have a similar problem; it will be nice to have the proper tool.

If you are not a home owner, you may want to wait on making expensive investments. Tools are very heavy, and can be quite cumbersome to transport from location to location. It is probably best to wait till you have a permanent residence before spending a whole bunch of money.

Having the right tool for the job is a very important issue if you like to work with your hands. It is most definitely the difference between getting something done right or just getting something done. In the end, buying your own tools is a great investment.
