6 tools for DIY

There are certain tools everyone should have in their home for small DIY projects or for quick fixes. Now as a new DIY’er there is no expectation that you will have a van full of tools for each and every job, but having these 6 tools around the house for DIY projects is essential.

1: Grips
Sometime called slip joint pliers, they are pliers whose pivot point or fulcrum can be moved to increase the size range of their jaws. Most slip joint pliers use a mechanism that allows sliding the pivot point into one of several positions when the pliers are fully opened. With not every nut or bolt in your home being the same size, having one tool that can tackle all jobs is crucial.

2: Screwdrivers
With so many things around the home screwed in, having a flat head and crosshead screwdriver is a must. Now you can go out and buy a two in one, but in reality you should just grab a screwdriver set so you have multiple sizes for various jobs.

3: Cordless drill
