Best home Essential tools list


The tape measure is undoubtedly one of the most important tools on the Household tools list. Meters are used to measure different distances and are available in lengths of 3 meters to 10 meters. A metal or plastic case and frame contains a coiled metal tape with centimeters and inches printed on it. By pulling out the metal tape, the desired amount of it comes out and by releasing it, the tape returns to its place in the case. It is very easy to work with a meter and is used to measure for the installation of various objects on the ceiling, wall, etc.


The second most widely used item on Household tools list in the home is various hammers. A hammer is a relatively heavy tool made with a plastic, wooden, or metal handle and a large, steel head. It is used for striking and pounding on various surfaces, nails, etc. Hammers have different hitting power and weight like 250 grams to 1 kilogram and are diverse in appearance; both sides of the hammer head are used for striking, but one of the most useful tools in the house is the claw hammer. One end of this hammer has a metal fork that is very useful for removing nails, screws, and so on.

3. Drill

It is safe to say that the only electrical or power tool that the title of a suitable home tool completely fits is a drill. These tools are a powerful device for drilling and or fast fastening and loosening screws on wood, plastic, metal, and wall. Electric and cordless drills are available in the market with chuck wrench or automatic chuck and their three-jaw size is also 6 mm, 10 mm or 13 mm. The larger the three-jaw size, the larger the drill bits will fit on it and the more powerful the drill will be.

In addition, drills are often made in 2 types of simple and hammer; the simple type is not suitable for drilling on walls and ceilings; but the hammer type with the help of a hammering mechanism during operation can drill walls, plaster, cement, etc. better and easier.

Any adult with a little mastery and concentration can work with these drilling devices, but to work with a drill, you must first know what type of surface you want to drill. Because wood, metal, and diamond wall drill bits are different and you should use the appropriate bit.

The second point is that you should choose the appropriate hole size for your installation project according to the bit size, which is available in the market with a diameter of 1 mm to 13 mm. The cordless drill also has the ability to quickly and professionally fasten screws on various objects. Assembling, installing shelves and cabinets, screwing on wood, metal, and wall in the house with a cordless drill will be very enjoyable and fast.

4. Ladder

The next thing comes to a tool that many people forget to get and constantly borrow from neighbors! … New generation ladders are made of metal and foldable and are available in height and multiple steps. That’s why if you have a small apartment and need a small ladder with a low height of say 3 steps, or if you want a taller ladder up to even 7 steps, you have your hand open to choose any model. In addition, these ladders are easily folded and can be stored in any corner of the yard, terrace, and inside the house.

5. Screwdriver

The next Household tool and companion of every person in the house is undoubtedly a screwdriver. This simple tool has a handle and a rod with a usually four-way or two-way tip that is used to fasten various screws. Screwdrivers are very diverse in terms of tip size and tool length in the market.

To work with a manual screwdriver, you need to choose the right tip size for the screw; then place the tip on the screw grooves and turn it completely firmly and in control to the left or right so that the screw is opened or closed. A short-handled or manual screwdriver is suitable for doing work in a tight space, and longer and more powerful screwdrivers are used for loosening and tightening larger and tighter screws.

In addition, there are also thin watch screwdriver and impact screwdriver models on the market. The watch screwdriver is for very small screws and repairing watches, digital devices, glasses, etc.

The impact screwdriver, however, is a large-scale model of these hand tools that has a metal impact-resistant piece at the end.

6. Phase meter

A phase meter, although it looks like a two-headed screwdriver, has a function other than screwing. This small tool is used to test the electrical current in a socket, wire, light bulb, and so on. The phase meter has a LED or neon lamp inside its body that will turn on if the tip of the tool is connected to the current and electrical wire. When working with a phase meter, you need to put the metal tip of it (while your hand does not touch the metal part) to the wire and electrical connection and check if the internal lamp of the phase meter turns on or not. If the answer is yes, then that wire has electricity.

Pliers are used to hold, pull, or twist various objects such as nails, screws, wire, sheet metal, sheet metal, and so on.

Wire cutters are naturally used to cut and cut various electrical wires in different conditions, and the way to work with them is very easy. The jaw of the wire cutters is sharp and powerful, but you should not use it to cut miscellaneous materials other than electrical wires.

Thin nose also does the job of picking up and removing various parts and equipment, but due to its narrow tip, it can enter into cracks, gaps, and tight spaces.

9. Tool box

You need a special tool to keep all of these tools. A plastic or metal tool box is one of the best options for storing tools in the home and workplace. Tool boxes are made in different sizes such as length 20 centimeters to 50 centimeters and height low and high. In addition, the toolbox may be 1-story, 2-story, or 3-story. The metal tool box has a strong body and has a very long service life, but the plastic toolbox, despite having a weaker body than metal, is much lighter and has less weight.

The act of soldering occurs for everyone in life. Soldering is a tin connection that exists in some digital devices such as remote controls, chargers, headphones, etc. and the connection wires of these devices are connected to the kit inside the part with the help of solder and high heat. Sometimes the charger wire or the headphone wire comes out of these devices or breaks; the electric soldering iron by creating heat at the end of the device and with the help of melting the solder, can reconnect this disconnected connection to that device twice. Working with a soldering iron requires a little experience and practice, but using it after a while will be very easy.
