Tools Everyone Should Add to Their Toolkit

Summer is prime DIY time, but every project requires the right tools. If you think your toolbox might be lacking, come to Aubin Ace Hardware. We stock all the best tools in NH so you’ll have everything you need to complete your next project. Even if you DIY pretty regularly, there are always a few tools that you don’t own but would be handy to have around.

If you think your toolkit is lacking, here are some tools that we think every collection of tools in NH should include.

Utility Knife

Scissors are for crafting. When you’re doing a DIY project, you need a blade that can do some serious cutting. A utility knife is great for cutting everything from cardboard to carpets. It’s also handy to have around when just need to open or break down a box. And the blade is easy to replace so that it’s always sharp when you need it.


An Extra Hammer

You probably already have a claw hammer in your toolbox, but it’s useful to have a ball-peen hammer as well. Common ball-peen hammers are usually smaller than your typical claw hammer, and the rounded end makes them useful for different types of projects. Because they are smaller they are ideal for working with metal. And also because of their size, they are handy if you need to tap in a nail in a tight space.


Extension Cords

You definitely have a few extension cords in your basement or garage, but it’s helpful to have cords of varying lengths. 6-foot and 10-foot cords are the most common and what you’ll need more often than not. But sometimes it’s handy to have a short 3-foot cord when you just need a little extra length. Conversely, sometimes you need an extra long one that’s 15 or 20 feet.

Stud Finder

You’ve probably walked by these in the hardware store and thought, “I don’t need one of those.” But the next time you have to hang something on the wall, you might wish you had one. Sure, your dad taught you the knock on the wall to find the stud trick, but that’s not foolproof. And you don’t want to make a mistake when you’re about to hang something heavy. It’s best to know where there’s a stud and where you need a screw anchor.
