Toolkit Essentials

toolkit essentials by Ryan Crossett

My dad worked in home improvement, so he was always well-stocked with tools.  I got a little spoiled growing up always having the right tool handy.  Working in Asia, I don’t have that luxury.  I’ve had to limit my toolkit to the essentials.  A few years ago, I bought myself the Bucket Boss 16 inch Gatemouth tool bag.  I decided to try to limit myself to what I could fit in the bag. So here’s the list of my essentials:

  •  cordless drill and bits
  • hammer
  • screwdriver set
  • vice grips
  • socket set
  • tape measure
  • needle nose pliers
  • torpedo level
  • square
  • chisel set
  • hack saw
  • hand saw
  • quick grip clamps

I’m happy to recommend particular models or brands if you’re interested.
