What tools i need?


Hello everyone, first of all I apologize for my bad English.

I've done some DIY projects (a mini tank, rail lighting and a few more) but I always used the tools of my father, I finally moved into my new house and I start building my toolbox.

What I need is to know which tool I need and that the recommended brands, because I want to buy a tool for last some years.

What hand tools and power I need and their brands?

The same goes for the purpose from a small maintenance projects up to DIY.

Thanks

I like Bosch powder tools and gearwrench socket sets and wrenches. Power tools include cordless drill, power miter saw, corded or cordless circular saw, jigsaw, hammer drill or rotary hammer, big corded low rpm drill for mixing etc. hand tools include 24" level, tape measure, hammer, nail puller( the extractor is a great one)brad nailer and/or finish nailer etc. too many items to list!

Why are you spamming crap that could have all been in a single post?

The reason you question is so huge is take belt sanders for instance while porter cable is generally regarded as the best a Bosch or makita would also serve you well escpially if bought on sale or clearance. Then there are old new stock Belt sanders like Elu that are great.

I would suggest you buy tools as you need them, that way you at least know you've got the right one for the job you're working on. And you will have it for the next time you need it. It's the way I've built my own collection.

Also, buy the best tool you can afford for each job.

Post on this site for recommendations about one tool for one job, it's less complicated and easier to get answers than asking about "all tools for all jobs."

Just my 2 cents.

For around the house basic bare bones tools I'd suggest a screwdriver set, a wrench set, some allen wrenches (sink disposals), insulated lineman pliers (Klein is a great brand, I have the Klein Journeyman lineman pliers), channel locks (Channel Lock brand channel lock pliers), a good digital meter and a good drill set. Maybe a good saw zawll as well. Ryobi works well, corded. And a good Hammer.

Do not buy Black and Decker. I'm a Makita guy myself. A good drill and you'll be looking for things to work on.

You can pick up Husky brand tools from The Home depot for a very fair price. I use Husky screwdrivers on the job everyday and have no complaints. I also have a Husky hammer for maybe $22 from The Home Depot. I think it will last longer than I will.


Just don't buy the cheapest and you should be okay. The more you use your tools the more you'll upgrade.
