My favorite EDC knife

Most of my common cutting tasks are best served by this knife.


Valencia asked Help! What should a home tool box consist of?

I am a female and I have no idea what a tool box should consist of.
My dad left me and my mother and I would like to help my mother by fixing up the house since its falling apart.

I would like to purchase a tool box and some tools but I am not sure what exactly to buy.
Does anyone have any recommendations?

I really would appreciated.

And got the following answer:

Tough question to answer. You normally just start buying stuff as you need it. That being said, a basic kit is:

Tape Measure
Screw driver kit (Klein makes an excellent 7-pc set)
Claw hammer (I’m partial to Vaughn)
Nut driver set (Kobalt makes a nice one)
Utility knife (I like the Stanley No. 199)
Wire strippers (once again, I prefer Klein)
Channel lock pliers
Vice grips
Square
Crescent wrench
Small socket set, 3/8″ drive (WAY too many opinions on brand to even mention)
Voltage detector (I prefer the GB beepy kind)
Pry bar
Putty knife (I like Hyde 1 “, 4″, 6″, 10″, and 12”)
Drill and small bit set (Black and Decker for you, Milwaukee or Hilti for me)
Circular saw
Collapsable saw horses
6″ C clamp

That’s about as basic as it gets. That and the myriad of fasteners you will inevitably have to buy. BTW, I’m very sorry about your father. My condolences, it’s tough loosing a parent.

Here, I think this is the kit Barry is talking about:

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-123-Piece-Multi-Purpose-Tool-Set-008-170-HKY/202016572

It’s…ok. No utility knife or tape measure…I’m sorry, Barry, I simply prefer to pick my own tools and brands. These “already put together” kits are anathema to me. I’m sure they are fine, I’m just a tool snob.

myca asked What constitutes a basic home handyman tool kit?

And got the following answer:

I agree with tinman, but I’d add a few things such as:

Small level
Combination square
Allen wrenches, both English and Metric
Torx (Star) wrenches because they are increasingly being used in electronic and automotive
applications since they are much harder to strip, especially in the smaller sizes than the old
fashioned Allen wrenches
25′ tape Measure
Socket set, both English and Metric
Small pry bar
Small and large Crescent wrenches
Slip joint pliers (Channel Locks)
A couple pairs of Vise Grips
Putty knife
Utility knife
Stud finder (not the most expensive kind, but a less complicated model because I’ve had
contractors tell me that they tend to give false readings where the $10 homeowner versions are just fine)
Non-marring dead blow mallet (the kind with lead shot in the non black rubber head so it applies force to whatever you are striking rather than bouncing off of it)
A couple of Mag-lite flashlights
Small air compressor for tires, athletic equipment, and toys
Digital tire gauge
WD-40, 3 in 1 oil, decent quality duct tape, electrical tape, plumber’s tape, and Armor-All
Set of jeweler’s screwdrivers for eyeglasses and opening locked bedroom and bathroom doors
A couple of plungers (one stays under the sink so it only gets used there and in the tub)
Tool box to put it all in so your kids know where to put things, though they seldom will

Other stuff that may be nice to have some day:
Nail Sets
Wood Chisels
Metal files
Folding sawhorses (the plastic kind hold a lot of weight, but don’t weigh much themselves)
Power tools – jig saw, circular saw, reciprocating saw, hammer drill, angle grinder, sanders, router
Wire strippers and coaxial cable tools
Ladders – 6′ step ladder and an extension ladder for cleaning gutters and putting up decorations
Medium size sledge hammer for pounding in garden stakes, etc.
Sharpening stones, preferably diamond because they are impossible for a homeowner to wear out
and don’t require any lubrication. It makes keeping your kitchen knives sharp very easy.
Wire brushes and fine (0000) steel wool for cleaning and polishing

What you don’t need:
Laser level (unless you pay big money for a professional model, they simply are not as accurate as
a decent quality spirit level)
Roto Zip because even though they have effective infomercials, no one really needs one. I’ve been
a professional tradesman for a long time and have never owned or needed one, though I have
watched the TV programs for their entertainment value

A note about quality: you don’t need a box full of expensive, Snap-On tools, but what you have should be decent quality and well cared for. Home Depot’s Husky, Lowe’s Kobalt, Sear’s Craftsman, and Stanley Toolworks all are lifetime guaranteed, feel good in the hand, won’t fail when you need them, and will last a homeowner forever. Cheap tools are often not the right size, difficult to use, prone to failure at inopportune times, and frequently cost more than good ones do. Keep an eye out for sales at the big box stores as there are often great deals to be had, especially if you don’t need something right away. Avoid anything from Harbor Freight unless it is for something that you truly only need to use once, though they do have very cheap tools.

Remember, every project is an excuse to get new tools.

I’m not sure why this appears with such weird spacing, but the program won’t let me edit it or change the way it looks on the final version. It is correct until I click Submit, sorry.

pmp1377 asked How do I change the blade in a Husky Utility knife?

I have two here at work and one of them has a lock on the top of the blade part that will release half of that area to change the blade. The other just has a small hole that I can slide what looks like a release up and down but nothing releases. This may be an older model of this knife but I need to change the blade on it as it is still in good shape. I hope that someone out there has a similar knife.

And got the following answer:

This one?…http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1vZ1xi4/R-100646860/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053

Slide the button up, and wobble the blade with some pliers, it may jammed or rusted in.

Another type has a little lever that flips over..Notice the groove in the new blade, the groove is used to lock the blade.

iffley asked What tools are a must have for home improvement?

I’m moving into my first home and want to purchase good quality tools that I’ll be using to build a new wall, tear down an old one, refinish some cabinets and things like that. What brand of tools should I go with and what specific tools do you suggest?

And got the following answer:

17 years as a GM mechanic taught me that Snap-on tools where worth the money when you used them daily, for the average home owner I would go with craftsmen, husky, etc. that have a lifetime warranty for sockets, wrenches, screwdrivers, etc. as for power tools the brands I like are Milwaukee, makita, dewalt, in that order just to name a few. never owned a bad Milwaukee tool, the others seem to make good and not so good lines so I buy the better (more expensive) ones.

now if your tearing down a wall and building a wall, you’ll need a good framers hammer. I’d go at least 20 oz. (26-32 is best but what ever your comfortable with) steel handle is my preference. Erwin I believe is the brand I own, but there are many good brands. a good pry bar or three big, med, small. a 12-14″ flat bar is a must, start there. A saws-all (hint: Milwaukee invented the saws-all) with a variety of blades, all purpose and a metal/hacksaw type, for starters. with those three tools you can tear down a house.

to build the wall you have the hammer. you’ll need a good circular saw, I love my makita! 99-110$ would own no other! A combination/framers blade, and a good finish blade (32-64 teeth) if your going to cut plywood or other finish wood. A framers/carpenters square, not a framing square unless your building stairs. A plumb bob and a good level (all levels need to be checked for accuracy, buying an expensive one doesn’t work here) check each bubble on a level/plumb surface and flip the level 180 deg. end to end and check again. you should get the same reading then turn it over and repeat. check all bubbles. nails I four building a single wall but an air nailer if you finishing a basement. drywall screw gun, utility knife, drywall square, 5″, 8″, 14″ taping knife, stainless steel mud pan, 18 volt cordless drill, corded drill-with 1/2″ chuck, mud mixer, orbital palm sander, belt sander, mini-rotary cutter “dremmel”, just to name a few.

17 years as GM mechanic, 7 years as building contractor, 3 years home inspector, have bought over $40,000 worth of personal tools. I’ve only scratched the surface so far, contact me if you want more specific info. I could go on for days……..my wife hates any tool sales place, but she loves my repairs!

z6x643 asked Question for firefighters…?

What tools do you carry on/in your turnouts, and why? I have two door wedges on my helmet, a Husky razor/utility knife (razer on one end, knife on the other) that comes in handy on car wrecks cause the razor is easier to get out than a seat belt cutter and cuts it like butter, and a pair of lineman’s pliers for battery cables mostly. I keep the knife in my left coat pocket, and the pliers in my right coat pocket. Never cared for tool belts. I think they look silly, and most people that wear them carry more tools than they need. Your not there to fix their water heater, you know what I mean? What about you guys?

And got the following answer:

I carry 30′ of rope and a caribener in my left pant pocket for bail-outs and RIT. In my right pant pocket I carry cable cutters for all kinds of wire, 30′ webbing for a rescue sling, 3′ prussic cord, multi-plier tool, rescue hammer, & a flashlight. Right coat pocket extrication gloves, left coat pocket 30′ rope & caribener. I wear a truck man’s belt with two caribeners and a rescue wrench and personal halligan. I carry a Stream-light on the outside of my jacket & on my helmet I have ESS goggles, 4 wedges, & a Garrity light. All my equipment is for self preservation, RIT, and rescue.
