The Basic Tools - A Handyman's Barebones Toolbox

When it comes to tools I like to buy quality. I don't mean buy the most expensive tools you can find, just good quality tools not the stuff you find in a dollar store.

Good tools make all the difference. You won't be a very effective handyman or handywoman if your screw drivers ruin the screw heads and the hammer head bends when you try to pull out a nail. We recommend that you tell your local retailer that you want good sturdy tools but you don't need industrial quality and then look at what he or she recommends.

Here is a barebones list of tools that we believe you need to maintain the average household:
