Don’t spend good money on hand tools just to have them stop working soon after you bought them!
Taking the time to search online for reviews and recommendations can really add up to a large part of your day. Let us do the searching for you and find the best ones for your money.
Growing up as a kid in Alaska in the 70’s meant that there wasn’t just a hardware store up the street. And the 15 or so mile drive to get to one (which could seem like 100 miles in the winter) didn’t mean they’d have what we needed or that we could afford it.

Many times a contractor grade tool will raise the level of quality and efficiency for the serious hobbyist to the next level. Comparing different grades in tools will help you decide if it’s worth the extra money.

We’ll get into those features so you can decide if you really need them, or if you can avoid paying money for things you’ll never need.
While you certainly can’t be spending your money on a tool that will stop working right when you really need it, you may not need to spend the top dollar on the highest grade hand tool on the market either.
A quality hand tool might not be as sexy with fewer features, fewer accessories and lower run time, but these things are frequently not needed with general home maintenance and can save you a bundle.
