Mike’s Top 6 Tools
Hammer

Get one that’s easy for you to maneuver and that you can use for different tasks.

6
Screw Driver

Get a screwdriver set, one that includes a flat and Phillips-head screwdriver in different sizes. And a Robertson head—made in Canada you know!! The magnetic tips hold the different attachments in place.

5
Stud Finder

Helps locate the wood framing behind drywall, to avoid accidently cutting into framing and to secure something heavy hanging on a wall to something solid, like a wood stud.

4
Drill

Drills work as a multi tool. By replacing the bits (attachments), you can use a drill to sand, grind metal, remove rust, make holes and mix paint, grout, thinset and mortar.

3
Level

Get a level that’s at least 3 feet long. And for durability a metal level is best.

2
Tape Measure

Get one that’s at least 16 feet long and ¾ of an inch wide—so you can support it with just one hand when it’s extended.
