Hello again Folks
It is time once again, for a new Blog entry and I am very excited to share today's post, as it is all about something near and dear to my heart ....tools.
With the right tools and a little knowledge, there is very little which cannot be accomplished. Man has been fascinated by tools, ever since our Neanderthal ancestors had the bright idea, to strap a rock to a stick and hit things with it. That was of course, the birth of the humble hammer, the grand daddy of all modern tools. The advent of our earliest tools was also coincidentally, the catalyst which started the evolution of man as an intelligent species.....Well at least in most cases.. we all know evolution to be an imperfect science after all.
Fast forward a few thousand years and we have a plethora of tool choices at our disposal. At no other point in our collective history, have we been so blessed with such variety and diversity of tools. Tools to build houses, tools to build cars, surgical tools, in fact; tools for just about anything you can think of. So whether you are already a die hard tool fan, or if you run for the hills at the mere mention of a socket wrench, we still have a lot to thank our tools for.
I am often asked, what basic tools should I keep around my home? What Does a good tool kit look like?
To which I might reply something like, a Hammer, screwdriver,wrench etc....But lets get serious for a moment and actually look at what would be considered a good basic toolkit for any home owner to have in their arsenal.
At the very least every homeowner should own a hammer, great for keeping door to door salesman and religious whack jobs away from your door.....
I Have compiled a list of the basic tools that should be at your disposal, it is by no means supposed to be an exhaustive list. And as with anything these days, you really do get what you pay for. I firmly believe that if you spend a little more to get good quality tools, they should, with proper care last you a lifetime.
