Whether you're hanging a picture, building a fence or working at a construction site, you'll need good hand tools. The right hand tools for you will depend on the type of work you expect to be doing.
A hammer is one of the most commonly used hand tools. For a stronger hammer with a better grip, consider one with a fiberglass shaft and a padded handle. In addition to standard nail hammers, which have a flat pounding surface and two-prong claws, there are many other types of hammers, including lightweight finishing hammers, which are used with small nails, and ball peen hammers, which have a flat end used for pounding metal or rivets and a ball end used for shaping rounded surfaces.
Wrenches are used for tightening and loosening nuts and bolts. Crescent wrenches are good for tight places and can attach at different angles. Box-end wrenches are good for holding a nut in place when tightening a bolt. Adjustable wrenches can be used on nuts and bolts of a variety of sizes, and offset wrenches are useful when you need a little extra length or have an angle to reach.
Other common hand tools include pliers, screwdrivers, hand saws, levels and clamps.
