I have a feeling this has been asked before, but I didn't find it here. I've read a number of websites and there always seem to be a little fluff and maybe this favorite tool or that.
I'm thinking about putting together some basic home repair toolboxes for my twin boys who recently moved out on their own. They already have sets of mechanics tools, needle nose pliers, ratchet sets, and so on, and one boy has a set of electronics tools, but if anything goes funky in the house, I get the call or at least have to loan them my tools.
Here is what I'm thinking So far:
Corded Power Drill
Corded Circular Saw
100' heavy duty Extension Cord
Saw Horse clamps
Black and Decker Workhorse table and vise thingy.
A wheeled dolly kind of toolbox, think Stanley Fat Max thing.
What else would you recommend? What unnecessary fluff have I included? Are there name brands that are good, but not extremely expensive. What name brands to avoid.
Edit: As I am not a consistent power tool user, I tend to distrust cordless tools. I know battery tech is vastly beyond what I used to use, but there is nothing more aggravating than not being able to use a tool because a dead battery. If they were to make a corded adapter for a cordless tool I'd be all over it. Also, My corded Ryobi drill has lasted more than 20 years, so....
