For those of us who are constantly thinking about the most modern trends – whether it’s the Internet Of Things, blockchain technology, or artificial intelligence – it’s often easy to forget how integral tools have been to human beings and their evolution. In fact, humans have been making stone tools millions of years ago, and the quality of tools ramped up hundreds of thousands of years ago. Of course, if you don’t use a tool for your professional endeavors, this might be hard to remember.
However, it doesn’t matter who or where you are – you will need a tool of some sort at some point. Even for those who would rather hire handymen rather than handle these situations, it benefits families and workplaces to have their own tools on hand at all times. It might be a situation that involve a home repair that has needed attention for a while, or an emergency work repair to make sure that your company maintains its reputation and overall image. Either way, there are certain must-have tools for every individual to keep on hand.
There are few tools in the world as versatile as a screwdriver, which is why everyone should have one. There are simply so many inventions that involve screws, and tightening or loosening those screws might be essential to repairing and maintaining these particular objects or structures.
If you need to chisel something? A screwdriver can help in that respect. If you even need to scrape some paint off of a wall, a screwdriver can come in handy. Whether it involves furniture, electronics, or changing your air filter – a screwdriver is quite simply absolutely essential.
The same way that there are so many devices and objects that have screws – the same is true with nails. That’s why a nail hammer can be absolutely necessary. For home decor – how are you supposed to hang up your paintings and posters without a handy hammer around? The great thing about a claw hammer is that it can always extract nails, when needed, as well.
For those who simply want to improve the decor in their home or work, or are obsessed with DIY projects – it’s pretty much impossible to not have a claw hammer around.
Unless you live in a city where you take public transportation, or have no desire to ever own a car – you will need a crescent wrench. Wrenches adjust nuts and bolts, which are essential to any modern automobile. For those who prefer to live in a more environmentally conscious manner, wrenches are essential for bikes, as well. Wrenches are also often necessary when it comes to furniture and plumbing, as well. It’s definitely needed when changing out a faucet, for example.
Of course, these are not the only tools that anyone should own. For those who will never be interested in a DIY project, or hate home repairs – there are still much-needed tools that simply HAVE to be around, no matter who you are, or where you are. Another must-have tool are pliers, often needed for electrical work and to grip more “square” objects. Pliers also come in handy when it comes to cutting wires, as well. A tap and die set is also a must-have tool when it comes to repair, as well. Other tools that will certainly come in handy is a tape measure to improve overall accuracy and save time/energy. It can help determine whether a new TV or cabinet will fit somewhere, for example. A utility knife can also come in handy for all sorts of things, including even cleaning fish, or other culinary uses such as slicing cheese or cutting vegetables. Of course, it can also do wonders in terms of overall scraping, as well.
