A good handyman acknowledges to his Toolbox. A Toolbox must be able to be easily transportable. Without being too heavy or bulky, it must be equipped with the bare minimum, while providing the most useful tools for common DIY tasks. The ideal Toolbox must be practice both by size and its design material and must have basic items.
Choose the right tool box
There are countless shapes and sizes available for tool boxes. We mainly find briefcases square and rectangular, but their height and width will make a difference. He will have to guide your choice depending on the number and volume of your tools. For convenience, prefer the boxes compartmentalized, with several floors of storage. Your tools will not mix, you can even sort them. As to the material, you will be spoilt for choice: steel, aluminum, plastic, wood. Take a resistant box, closing well solid and reliable, but the lightest possible.
The basic elements of a Toolbox
The perfect Toolbox would be versatile, useful regardless of the type of DIY (plumbing, carpentry, mechanical, electronic). To do this, it should contain a set of keys (flat, awl, pipes), sockets, (flat, cruciform, polygonal head) screwdriver and pliers (sharp, receptacles). We can find on the market of the keys and the snap-head screwdriver. Very practical, they offer a place and weight gain. Add a medium size hammer, a cutter, a knife and a few spare saw blades, a tube of extra-strong glue (superglue), a roll of masking tape, a meter with winder (from 3 m) and a flashlight. Don’t forget a few screws, nails, bolts and nuts of different sizes and different shapes.
