From the article:
Experts share the nuts and bolts (and the levels and screwdrivers) of a super-handy set.
Leatherman Surge Multitool
“Twenty-one tools in a neat little package. Just pop out a screwdriver to remove faceplates when painting walls or pliers to tighten bolts on furniture. It’s so convenient having wire cutters, scissors, and more in the palm of your hand, too.” –Kelly Carrell, SuperHandyman newspaper columnist
Bostich 16-Ounce Smooth Straight-handle Hammer
“Pick a hammer that feels good in your hand and is easy to swing. For many people, a 16-ounce head is way more manageable than a 20-ounce one. This hammer has an oversize striking face for improved accuracy, plus a slip-resistant handle for a secure grip.” –Jason Kyser, resident pro at Pro.com
Klein Tools Heavy-Duty Multibit Screwdriver
“Instead of storing multiple screwdrivers, choose this one with six screw heads. Along with Klein’s high-leverage side-cutting pliers, this tool can handle every kind of household task, from assembling furniture to hanging window treatments.” –Lou Manfredini, host of HouseSmarts and Ace Hardware’s home expert
Stanley Powerlock Measuring Tape
This is a basic one-inch-wide, 25-foot-long measuring tape, but I love its sturdy design. It extends to about six feet without bending, so you don’t need a helper holding the other end.” –Lou Manfredini
Bosch PS21 Drill with 12-Year Lithium-Ion Battery
“This cordless drill has a trigger that makes it easy to switch speeds, depending on what you’re drilling into—faster for wood shelves, slower for tougher pieces, like a metal storm door. The best part: Its battery stays charged for up to 18 months.” –Marie Leonard
