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

== Small wire cutters (called side cutters)

For cutting electric and other wire.

== Needle nose pliers

There are times when you need to reach a pin or bolt that is hard to get to. Needle nose pliers will do the job and are very useful for other tasks.

== Wire strippers

If you do any electric work, wire strippers are cheap and make your job much easier. You can buy a stripper and wire cutter combined.

== Tape measure

Get a wide solid brand name such as Stanley.

== Battery tester

These are available from Radio Shack; if you use batteries you should own one of these.

== Tool box

It is amazing how tools get lost if they don't have a home.

I priced this collection of tools at a high-end hardware store on the Internet. The total cost of this collection of home tools is about $150 for excellent quality. These tools should save you $1000s over the years. Add the two Reader's Digest books and the total is about $200.
