In this video, I share the contents of my own personal toolbag. I identify the tools I recommend and personally use when I work on a home electrical project. In addition, I make suggestions on the “proper care and handling” of DIY tools, with the mindset of preventative care and maintenance.
These were the tools I used on the job as an electrical contractor before I sold my business, and what I use now when I do any wiring jobs around the home or for a video shoot. Some have definitely “paid their dues”, and reflect the years of service they put in on the job.
In an upcoming series, I plan on reviewing the best “tools for the job” in much greater detail. We’ll take a look at individual tools, identify their applications in the home electrical process, and shed a little insight on how to purchase the best tools. You might be surprised to find that price is not always an indicator of value!
Remember – Safety First!
