A while back we asked you to help us — and our other readers — what makes up the perfect car toolkit. You responded with a tour-de-force of awesome suggestions, many of which even made their way into my own car kits. Now we’re asking you to help us assemble the perfect toolkit for home use.
As usual, I’ll kick things off:
In general, I perfer a tool caddy (read: open-top hard-side tote) for home kits. Size isn’t nearly as important as it is in a car kit, and it’s nice to be able to grab the caddy and cart it around to whatever job you’re taking on at the moment. I’d start my home kit off pretty much the way I start my car kit, but I’d add a few other home-only tools like:
- a drywall saw
- a fish tape
- a small tack hammer
- a set of micro-screwdrivers
There’s lots more — and as before I’ll contribute more once I get the chance to take a look in my own kit at home — but if you would, jump in and share with everyone what you keep in the home kit.
