Have you ever had a day when you just needed to get some things done around the house but didn't have the right tools to do them? For example, maybe you needed to plug a hole in your roof or install a new sink — and then realized that you didn't have what it takes to complete the task. That's why we've put together this list of tools for manufactured homeowners. These simple manufactured home toolkits can make your life easier, even if you're not an expert handyman.
A hammer is a tool useful for driving nails, removing nails, breaking things, and breaking them in half. A hammer can be used when you are building something from scratch or fixing something that has already been built.
You should have a screwdriver set. Having the right tool for the job is important, so a screwdriver set is key for manufactured home maintenance tasks.
There are many different types of screwdrivers, including slotted screwdrivers and Phillips heads, but you can also get specialty versions like Torx or hexagonal. Each type will require its own handle style and tip angle to be useful; look at how they're shaped before buying one so that you know which ones will work well with your needs.
A level is used to ensure that a surface is straight, even, horizontal, vertical or plumb. A level should be one of the first tools that you purchase for your toolkit. Technically speaking, levels come in four different sizes; short-beam (6"), long-beam (12"), torpedo (8"), and spirit levels. They can also come with depth measurements marked along them, so you can use them as marking gauges.
Pliers are multipurpose tools that can be used to grip, twist, cut, and remove nails. Pliers are available in various sizes and shapes. Their usefulness is determined by the type of work you are doing. If you want to pick up small objects such as nuts or bolts, then needle nose pliers will be your best friend for this job. As for larger objects such as metal pipes or wires, side-cutting pliers will work best for them.
A utility knife is a tool that you should have at all times. This is because it is useful for cutting carpet, linoleum, plastic, insulation, etc. It can also be used to cut through wallboard and plywood. A utility knife is great when it comes time to make holes in drywall so that you can run wires through the wall or hang pictures on your walls.
A tape measure is one of the most important tools in any home improvement enthusiast's tool kit. It's helpful in measuring the dimensions of your manufactured home or for determining the distance between two points in a room. The tape measure can be used to measure the length of an object (such as a couch), but they are also handy because they have a locking feature that helps ensure accuracy when measuring shorter distances. If you're working on something around your home, having a tape measure nearby will save you time and frustration!
Cordless Drill And Bits
Cordless drills are the ideal tool in your arsenal because they're more portable, powerful, and versatile than their corded counterparts. A cordless drill can be used for various things: drilling holes, driving screws, or setting anchors. They also come with various attachments that allow you to use them for other applications, such as sanding/grinding or driving screws into hard surfaces like concrete or stone.
Channel locks are a type of pliers that have a sliding joint and locking mechanism on one end. This allows you to adjust the size of the jaws by closing and opening them, which is useful for different gripping parts of an object.
