    Bet 90% of you perverts entering this thread thought of something dirty, but no....we leave the homosexual talk in the OT forum.



    Just purchased an Old House, needs a ton of work on it, and I really don't know much about anything.




    1st things first ......



    Tools!


    Just picked up a tool-bag at the local shop, now I need to fill it up with all the essential tools that will help me put this Old House back together.



    Handy Sherdoggers, or Construction posters -- come on in and give me what you feel are the "Go 2" tools every man needs in their toolbag.



    Let's get this going .....Fill my ToolBag!

    I buy three or four Phillip's heads at a time. Because apparently I can't use a screwdriver without stripping it. That's all I got.

    Well I see your problem. You're buying screwdrivers instead of spatulas and whisks

    You're using the wrong size driver.

    Heard these are pretty good for most things, not sure what brand or make/model to pick up, still looking into it.

    Dewalt is decent. Very versatile implement, kept me on the right side of sanity. I tend to use corded unless that's not a possibility. I don't like having to charge batteries and worry about keeping extras.

    Why don't you tell us what work the house needs.

    I would have murdered people if I didn't invest in a skillsaw and a reciprocating saw.

    Pretty much everything, just finished up gutting the whole house down to the studs, ripped up the flooring, lighting, all the cabinets ... I have plenty of time to bring this old gem back to life, but first things first, having the right tools to take care of business.

    Surprisingly I actually have a tape, good addition to the toolbag!

    Did you know there is a 6 point screwdriver? You get them in this set. It's also magnetic so that your nails and screws stick to the driver as you work and wont fall onto the ground if you accidently let go.

    Canadian Tire prices this at something ridiculous like $99, but it is always on sale for $20. There are smaller versions of this set but this 80pc one has everything. It even includes 4 stacks of bits that you can use with a drill.

    This is what I got, but I didn't doo a lot of research, it was more "what's in my price range/I'm a cheap bastard" type thing.

    That being said it's worked well enough for me.

    The reciprocating is a rechargeable, I would not recommend that route.
