Considering where the tools might be stored in the home
All my girls have their own tool boxes, with a complete set of tools, which we are adding to all the time, lol.
You can buy the ‘mini’ home sets if thats what you want… and a lot of ladies like the pinks and such…. but I go ahead and buy name brand tools, because I expect them to take these tools with them, and use them for life. There is no reason why a woman should not own a good set of tools, and know how to use them.
I recommend Stanley, Craftsman, Vermont American, Kohler, etc. Look especially for tools with a lifetime warranty on them, and get them sized to fit, so they are comfortable to use. Obviously, you dont want a 22 oz hammer, just to drive a few picture hangers in the walls…a 16 oz, or even 12 oz will do just fine for that. Get a full set of screwdrivers, at least 2 sizes of adjustable wrenches, 2 or 3 different pairs of pliers, utility knife, a 16 ft tape measure (with a locking blade), torpedo level (9") or 12" combination square/level, flat prybar (Stanley WonderBar is a good one), safety glasses, flashlight, and gloves. With that set of tools, you can tackle most small projects around the home. Add Special Tools as you need them.
My girls all use about a 12" heavy plastic toolbox, right now… they won’t rust, and since they are not getting carried around a lot, are plenty sturdy. If they were lugging them around like I was, for service calls on the road, then I’d have them all in metal tool boxes.
Hehhehe…. a roll of good heavy duct tape is always a handy item to have in a tool box too….
