Mike’s Top Tools
Hammer

Should be easy to maneuver and can be used for different tasks.

6
Screwdriver

A screwdriver set that includes a flat and Phillips-head screwdriver in different sizes is best.

5
Stud Finder

Locates the wood framing behind drywall to avoid accidentally cutting into it or to secure something heavy.

4
Drill

By replacing the bits (attachments) you can use a drill to sand, mix, grind metal, remove rust and make holes.

3
Level

Should be at least 3 ft. long, and metal is best for durability.

2
Tape Measure

Get one that’s at least 16 ft. long and ¾" wide—so you can support it with one hand when it's extended.
