Top DIY Tools

Passionate about tools? So are we. After much discussion (and a little arguing) here are the tools we can't do without. You may be surprised by some of our choices.

Here at The Family Handyman magazine, we love tools! We own a lot of tools (and use them constantly) and we spend endless hours discussing the superior qualities of one tool over another. After consulting our favorite pros and voting among ourselves, we came up with a list of tools that we use regularly, but that you might not be familiar with yet.
