One of the best things about being a tradesman is going shopping for tools. It's like being a kid in a candy store and having Christmas all over again every time we enter the store. The only difference is that as a kid, someone else paid for it. Well, buying tools is a necessary part of the job. We can either spend a little amount of money and get sub-standard tools that will most likely break at the exact wrong time, or we can spend the appropriate amount and get the job done. Below are some of the tools that I've found to work out the best for me in my 20+ year career so far.
This isn't a complete list of course. You can never have enough tools. But this covers the essential set that makes its way around from project to project.
