9.1 ESSENTIAL TOOLS - DO-IT-YOURSELF - DIY 21 BEST ITEMS FOR A BASIC HOME TOOLBOX CONTINUED

== Duct tape

A new weather proof type is available from 3M; some are available in colors for invisible repairs.

== Roll of black electric tape

This is essential for electric wire and other electric repairs.

== Utility knife

Cheap plastic ones work well and are available at Wal-Mart. They are designed so that when the tip of a blade gets dull, you simply snap off the end to bring up a new sharp point.

== Adjustable wrench (Harry recommends the Crescent(r) brand.)

You might keep a small one (6 inch) in the house and a large one (10 inch) in your car so that you will have two sizes - large ones give you more leverage. Sometimes these are called crescent style wrenches; this is not the same as the Crescent(r) brand itself.

== Hacksaw

A hacksaw can be used to cut a variety of materials besides metal; for example, it is very useful for cutting plastic plumbing pipe. You can even cut frozen meat, but use a clean blade! Get a set of inexpensive new blades and replace the blade every so often.
