For woodworking projects, a quality set of chisels, a hand plane, a coping saw, a mitre box or mitre saw, and a combination square are essential. We also recommend having a set of clamps, a coping or fret saw and a block plane for optimal precision. 

Plumbing and electrical tasks require specific hand tools to ensure safety and effectiveness. For plumbing, adjustable wrenches, pipe wrenches, pipe cutters and basin wrenches are commonly used.

When it comes to electrical work, wire strippers, pliers, voltage testers and insulated screwdrivers are vital tools to have on hand. Always remember to follow proper safety protocols and consult professionals if you’re unsure about any specific tasks.

Proper maintenance and care can significantly extend the lifespan of your hand tools. After each use, clean them thoroughly with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or debris. Keep them in a dry environment to prevent rust and corrosion. Lubricate any moving parts regularly, and store them in a designated toolbox or organiser to avoid unnecessary wear. 

Safety should always be a top priority when using hand tools. 

  • Ensure you wear appropriate personal protective equipment such as safety goggles, work gloves, and ear protection when necessary. 
  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines for each tool. 
  • Take your time, work in well-lit areas, and maintain a clean and organised workspace to minimise accidents. 

Additionally, always use the right tool for the job and avoid using damaged or compromised tools.

Absolutely! Quality hand tools don’t always have to break the bank. Some brands offer budget-friendly options that maintain good quality and reliability. While cost is a consideration, it’s important to prioritise durability and functionality to ensure you get the best value for your investment.
