Hand and Power Tools
« on: January 18, 2019, 03:38:17 pm »

We have a small population of DIYers in here, and I'm always interested in high quality tools.


Not a handmade hammer made in Vermont by some Millennial with a handlebar mustache. Actual useful things.


Wiha screwdrivers were brought up in the knife thread. I love my Wiha screwdrivers for adjusting link screws in my Omegas.


Bondhus makes nice torx and allen wrenches.


One of my most indispensable "tools" I use in my house is my Jawhorse, and my Keter folding table is constantly being moved around for projects.


Admittedly, I appreciate cheap tools too, as much as I take care of my tools, I don't know how many screwdriver sets I've destroyed. I have a couple Tekton screwdriver sets laying around the house.


I know Chris is setting up his new house, so I imagine he's working quite a bit with his hands.

Just a thought, might be worth setting up such a thread.

Also, as far as hand tools go, I really like Knipex for channel locks, snips, pliers, etc.

^this!

The new Knipex angled pliers wrench is phenomenal (and lots of other Knipex tools ).

Looks like an Estwing hammer, maybe?

Going to pick up one of these soon:

My 1x30 belt sander shit the bed and I have a couple knives that need to be reprofiled. I have an axe too with a couple big chunks taken out of the edge so that needs some major reprofiling done to it.
