A toolbox/toolkit is made up of a set of tools aimed at achieving certain goals. There are many types of toolkits but an ideal toolkit is always flexible and scalable. The right toolkit helps the user to be more aware in the delegation of responsibility.
Creating a DIY toolkit is quite easy; just follow these instructions.
First, you need to buy a small storage box or create a storage space (depending on how large your house is).
Next, clean the storage box or room thoroughly. Most of these tools are made with metal and they need to be stored in a cool and dry place. Make sure the storage box or room is clean and dry without moisture.
It is now the time to buy the most used tools. Tools like hooks, fuses (a selection of fuses in 3, 5 and 13 amps should be bought), insulation tapes, and so on are the first set of tools to be purchased and stored in the top section of your storage box. A 5-meter measuring tape, as well as a roll of insulation tape is a must.
Other items such as wire, radiator key, screwdrivers, saws, knife, hammer, spanner, pliers, and other mechanical tools should be arranged at the base of your storage box.
A flashlight can be a handy tool to ensure that you see clearly each time you want to get something from your toolkit or in case you suffer a power loss.
You have successfully created a toolkit; it’s time to store it in a cool and dry place. Store it in a place that is easily accessible and a moisture-free area to ensure the longevity of your tools. That’s all!
A standard toolkit should include the following tools:
Wood Router is a must-have tool used to hollow out an area in the face of a hard work piece. A woodworking router also creates perfects patterns and cut flawless rabbets and dadoes.
A Set of Allen keys
Each key should be kept in individual spaces so that you can easily see if any is missing. Buying a set with longer arms will make things easier for you.
An adjustable wrench with rubber covered handles will ensure that you have a good grip. When buying this tool, hold it firmly in your hand so that you will have a feel of how comfortable and secure it is.
A hacksaw is a fine-toothed saw, used for cutting metal. Try to choose one with a coated frame because it is easy to operate. It will also aid shock absorption while being used.
A Set of Screwdriver
Screwdrivers are used to drive screws through a hole into a plastic, metallic or wooden surface. Screwdrivers come in various shapes and sizes. If storage is tight, it is recommended that you buy a screwdriver with interchangeable tips.
Other tools include hammer, a quality knife, pliers, tape measure, utility knife and blades, level, stiff-bladed putty knife and so on.
