What are the total tools needed to fully equip a workshop?
The first consideration is the operation of the shop - wood or metal working, service or construction, industrial or hobby shop. Whatever the function performed, a complete set of all required tools, maintained and ready for use, is vital. The total tool shop look should be professional, clean and tidy, with every tool in its known place.
One of the best way to build a tool collection is to buy for projects. In this way, only what is needed is purchased, without wasting money on perceived 'bargain' tools that may never be used. It is always best to learn from the experts, see what they are using and follow suit. This also helps develop good practices and safety habits.
As a rule, it is better to choose tools well than to fixate on specific brand names. Some famous brands are known for their strengths in particular areas, with no company having a full range of total tools that are the best in every category.
Always buy the best available tool for the price. Purchasing discount tools that will fail at important times can cause problems that make the saving null and void. If in doubt, good advice is to select the model that is priced in the middle of the range.
Also, although a workshop provides a safe area of operation, consideration should be given to flexibility. For example, will tools be needed for use on site or at a remote location? This is where battery chargers and cordless tools are a total win! Consider rechargeable options for power tools, some of which have the added advantage of interchangeable batteries. Many are less expensive in the long run, making your total tool collection more cost-effective. Tool bags and portable boxes become essential for fast and easy loading and to help make sure that everything required is transported to site.
As the collection builds, particular brands will become familiar and dominant, whether through good performance and durability or just comfort and ease of use. The key is to use tools correctly, and they will serve their purpose for a long time. Keeping tools sharp, clean and ready for use significantly extends the total tools life.
