Interesting list for homeowner types – Tools Everyone Should Own @ Yahoo / Popular Mechanics – post up your suggestions and tools in the comments!
Man is “weak in himself, and of small stature,” wrote 19th-century essayist Thomas Carlyle. Yet, with tools, “the granite mountain melts into light dust before him, seas are his smooth highway, winds and fire his unwearying steeds.” And this from a guy who never felt a 5800-rpm circular saw scream to life in his hand.
While much has changed since Carlyle’s day, one thing hasn’t: We need tools to build, repair and maintain the mechanical world in which we live. With these tools, you’ll be ready for just about any project–whether it’s melting mountains or swapping out the kitchen sink.
