That is how I learned the names of all my dad’s tools. Lots of them were hand tools, like a hammer, a pliers, a screwdriver and a wrench. As I got older I was more curious about the tools he had and what they were used for. I started watching him do small projects at home, like when he built a “hot bed” for my mother’s seedlings like corn and tomato plants that would grow in a protected box in early spring to be transplanted into the garden when they grew stronger. His tools helped him build that.He was always fixing something around the house like replacing the hinge on the outside door or helping my brother fix the wheels on his bike. He had many hand tools like Chisels, Clamps, Hand and Pull Saws, Levels, Measuring – Tapes- Wheels- Lasers, Planes, Putty Knives Pry Bars, Pliers, Hex Keys, Snips, Squares, Stapler & Staples, VISE-GRIP Tools, Utility Knives, Screwdriver Bit Tips and screwdrivers, Punches, Putty Knives, a Flashlight, Clamps, Utility Brushes, Tape Measures, a Chalk Line, a Carpenter’s Pencil, a Tin Snips, a Nail Remover, a Speed Square, a Framing Square Level, and some Wood Chisels.Playing in the house with a wagon was not a good idea when my brother and I pushed it into the wall and made a hole. My dad had to fix the hole in the wall by using a trowel type tool to apply plaster and utility brush to smooth it out. He used a variety of tools, equipment & supplies for building a wooden camper to put on the back of his pickup truck. He lived in it during the week when he was working construction, woodworking & landscaping. He always had time for his wife and family on the weekends.I liked to watch him build things at home like when he would draw a blue line on a large piece of plywood with a Chalk Line Reel. To my surprise he cut that plywood as it lay over 2 wooden saw horses with a large hand saw at a very fast pace. It didn’t take him long and he had a project done in no time at all.Now as an adult I know that the many types of hand tools that exist are helping people with their repairs and projects today. There are even pink tools for women that are made to promote breast cancer awareness. Shopping for tools for family and friends are ideal gifts for the project doer.
