Must Have Tools in My Toolbox and Shop

by | Feb 16, 2020

While I try to keep this website somewhat generic in what topics I cover it becomes difficult for me to be anybody but who I am and a large part of who I am is a 53 year old guy who has used his hands for most of those years. By using my hands I mean working with tools and the need for tools never goes away. The purpose of this page is not to be a duplicate of the others tools page but rather an index of tools I can’t live without,  tools I use frequently and tools that I need, want and plan on purchasing. In the case of an obsolete tool I will include a current equivalent.

While it might appear that I favor Bosch power tools that is simply not the case. I make all my tool decisions based on what tool is the “Best” for my needs and quite often Bosch is the best. When purchasing cordless tools it’s cost effective to choose a brand and stick with it. While that is certainly a factor for me I don’t tie myself down based on a battery.
