Hand Tools

Whether you are a first time home buyer, or just a tool purchasing virgin who's looking to get busy, you may want to start your tool collection with some hand tools. Home improvement and upkeep are necessary practices for a decay-free home, and owning the right do-it-yourself tools will prove handy and cost efficient during these processes. With the proper hand tools, your sweat and toil will be worth even more than a sense of self satisfaction--they will be worth several months of hot water and Chinese take-away.

You want hot water and Chinese take-away--don't you?
