Every house or apartment needs to have a tool kit. A tool kit comprises of tools that come handy whenever anything needs a quick fix or repairing. Since it is impractical to keep all the tools in anticipation that you might need it someday, it is important that you have some basic tools at a convenient place, like screwdrivers, or a swiss knife. Here is a list of things you must include in your tool kit.
From hanging pictures to putting up shelf supports, a medium-size hammer is an important tool. A claw hammer is a primary tool used for driving nails into, or pulling nails from some other object. There are many other types of hammers available in various sizes. You need to decide based on the nature of work which one would suit the best to you.
A set of two basic screwdrivers, flat head screwdriver, and Phillips head screwdriver, are essential. You can keep a medium size in your home and a set of small screwdrivers to assemble something small.
Measuring tape comes in handy for almost every repair work. From nailing a picture to the wall to retiling the floor, a measuring tape is required to get a precise measurement and finish work perfectly. A twenty-five foot long measuring tape will work for most of the jobs, but you can keep smaller tapes.
