Your Very Own Do It Yourself Tool Kit

Assembling a Do It Yourself Tool Kit is a smart idea for anyone who wants the ability to do quick fixes around the house or apartment. Most beginning do-it-yourselfers and first-time homeowners ask, “What tools do I need to get started?” Friedman’s Home Improvement is happy to provide a list of the tools that you’ll need to tackle a wide range of home improvement projects.

1. Select a toolbox that is easy to carry, is made to last, and has enough compartments and pockets for all your tools.
2. Slip-joint pliers, needle-nose pliers, and medium-size channel-locking pliers.
3. A slotted screwdriver and a Phillips screwdriver.
4. Level. If you want to get fancy, download a free level app on your smart phone. However, a 10 inch bullet level will serve you well.
5. Box cutter / retractable blade knife.
6. Duct tape.
7. Tape measure.
8. Hammer.
9. Metal wire snips if you plan to cut sheet metal.
10. Chisel / file.
11. Putty knife.
12. Hacksaw and keyhole saw.
13. Gloves and safety goggles.
14. Medium-sized adjustable wrench.
