Whether you’re a carpenter, a metal worker, an electrician, or a craftsman in your field, you’ll need the right tools to make your job easier and more efficient. Every device, whether a small hammer or a large lathe or CNC Router, is essential for the job at hand. Having the right tools (and using them correctly) will allow you to work more quickly, accurately, and safely. There are hundreds of tools for various types of work.
In this guide, we’ll take a quick look at some of the most common types of tools that we use.
- Hand Instruments:- Let us be your guide to common tools with a collection of hand tools. These types of tools are primarily intended to be used with our hands, and we must do the work with the tool’s assistance.
- Hammers:- The first-hand tool, or tool in general, that comes to mind is most likely a hammer. It is a very simple tool, but it is also dangerous. Hammers can be used to drive nails, strike an object with great force, join two pieces of wood, or dismantle an item. Hammers come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including claw hammers, ball-peen hammers, sledgehammers, and mallets, to name a few.
- Pliers :- A plier is a very versatile tool. With pliers, you can cut wires/metal, tighten or loosen nuts and bolts, grip an object, and remove nails. Common types of pliers include needle-nose pliers, electrical (linesman’s) pliers, cutting pliers, and slip-joint pliers.
- Drivers of Screws:- Screwdrivers are one of the most basic tools. As the name implies, they assist you in driving screws, allowing you to insert (tighten) or remove (loosen) screws from wood, metal, masonry, and other materials. Flathead and Phillips Screwdrivers are widely used, but there are other screwdriver types, such as Torx (Star), Tri-Wing, Hex, Pozidriv, and so on.
In this guide, we’ve looked at some of the most common and popular types of tools that we use on a daily basis. We still need to go over a few more tools in Canada. So, in the future, we will update this guide with more types of tools as well as tools tailored to specific jobs.
