What basic handyman tools should a non-handyman have in a home toolbox?
Basics would be:
A small and medium sized flat head (regular) screwdriver
A small and medium sized Phillips head screwdriver
A small and medium sized claw hammer
A small and medium sized pair of pliers
A small and medium sized crescent (adjustable) wrench
A medium sized Vicegrip (locking) wrench
A paint can opener
A roll of electrical tape
A roll of standard width duct tape
An assortment of cable ties
A roll of plumbing emergency repair tape
A 25 ft tape measure
A box of assorted nails, screws, picture hangers etc (you can acquire by simply keeping the extras left over from projects)
Those basics will cover most of the usual home repair projects!
CITmyOmy's list covers everything I'd *like* to keep in my tool drawer, but my son has a habit of "borrowing" items and never returning them. So basically, I have:
An all-in-one small/medum flathead and Phillips screwdriver
A pair of pliers with insulated handles
A large claw hammer
A 25-foot tape measure
An assortment of nails and screws of various sizes
A hand saw
Electrical and Duct tape.
A nifty all-in-one tool similar to a Swiss Army knife.
