All Around Toolbox

Aug 18, 2007
Whether you're at home or in your car traveling, you will always need a handy toolbox just in case a minor problem comes up. That simply means that not only your local repairman is required to have a toolbox, but also you. It's practically a survival kit.

In that way, you won't have to call the handy man and hand him some cash that you could have used for something more important just for his service and all for that minor problem. To get you started, here is a list of the most important tools that will surely help you fix whatever is wrong. The list is not complete but sooner, you will find yourself adding more tools in your kit.

The One

To get you started, rush off to the nearest local hardware in your area and get yourself a nice sturdy toolbox with all the compartments that are enough to accommodate the number of the varying tools that you will soon place in it. In case you have little children living with you, make sure that your chosen toolbox has a lock to avoid the risk of getting them into trouble.

Safety First

After you have chosen the one that you feel is right for you, it's time to fill it with the different tools that you think you might need. The possibilities are endless but first thing's first. Ensure different precautions like safety glasses which are definitely a must. Flashlights with fresh batteries will help you when you need to repair something that's located inconveniently without any source of light, or when you decide to do the repairing at night. You would also want to grab some work glove to keep your hands clean in case you will be fixing something that's dirty or smelly. A dust mask will surely be handy if you have any case of allergies, like from dust for instance.

Sticky Situation

In case all you need is a simple adhesive to get the problem solved, then grab some wood glue if your problem is your stool's leg. Super glue will do wonders for materials that are a lot heavier than the usual. Epoxy, which is also an adhesive, may be used on some other kinds of materials. Tapes like electrical tapes and duct tapes may be used for a lot of different reasons but if you need some assistance, you may use masking tapes to hold things and free your hands to do another thing. Masking tapes are also useful for labeling since you can write on them using markers.

Array of Assortment

You better get yourself ready since there are lots to choose from these kinds of tools. Here they are: sand paper, nails, screws, wrenches, bolts, nuts, washers, pliers, hammers, wire cutters and vise grips. Why don't you just think what problems you usually encounter and settle for the tools you will most likely need to handle the problem? But in terms of screwdrivers, you may get a set to make sure you have the right size for any loose screws.

Even with the different kinds of knives, get a utility knife to get you covered but if you just need a knife to do some scraping with, better just get a putty knife. Also, a staple gun is very useful to hold things in place. Just make sure you have the correct size and number of the staple wires for your staple gun.

Extra! Extra!

Some extras don't really matter, that's why they're named as such. Think twice though because you may not know when you need a bunch of disposable rags, hand cleaners, fresh batteries for your flashlights and boxes of staple wires, just in case you run out of them.
