Especially if you’re someone who lives alone or in a college setting, you’re going to need to purchase quality tool sets. You never know when a pipe is going to come loose or you’re going to your wine opener and be forced to use your drill to pull the cork out.
I’ve always hated the idea that women’s tool kits are mostly pink, I mean why can’t they be black or grey? So, I decided to find the best tools sets (for both men and women) and provide you with a well researched list that you can trust. These aren’t girly, and aren’t made specially for women, but that’s because they don’t need to be. Here are the 6 best tool sets for anyone — so next time something breaks you can get shit done yourself instead of having to call a man to come fix it for you.
These tool sets have all you need for literally forever in one convenient place. The tools themselves are extremely well-made from chrome-vanadium steel and Vastar has a great reputation for high quality products — so you know they’ll last you a while and be well worth the price. With 102 different pieces just a few of this set features include a hammer, level, tape measure, utility knife, and wrenches.
If you’re really into wrenches, or just have an intense need for tons of wrench options, the Crescent tool kit is the one for you — there’s seriously so many adjustable wrench bits. These tools have pretty much everything you would need for industrial, mechanical, and consumer usage. Just a few of the items, like most tool sets, this one includes: quick release ratcheting drives, spark plug sockets pliers, and screwdrivers.
The Stanley 65 piece tool set is great for all homeowners. This is perfect for someone who wants a little more than your standards tool set but also isn’t looking to spend an arm and a leg. The compact case allows for easy transportation and storage — it’s also very durable so it can take a beating. Just a few of the pieces in this set are ratchets, sockets, wrenches, a leveler, hammer, and measuring tape.
This is by far the most extensive tool set on the list, so I wouldn’t recommend just getting this if you’re just wanting something for little home projects — I’d say this would be perfect in a garage. But, although it is a little pricey, all that you get is well worth it. This set includes: 75-tooth gear system for high torque ratcheting, ratcheting wrenches, sockets, hex keys, extensions, along with many others tools. The box is far larger than the other more portable tool sets but that gives you room to add other tools to your collection as well.
I personally had got this tool kit for graduation last year, and I absolutely love it. It comes with all the essentials: hammer, adjustable wrench, pliers, screwdriver, and multiple bits. This would be great as a gift to any young adult entering the world or just friends who could use a few more tools around the house. To be clear, this is definitely just a starter tool set and doesn’t have the variety that someone who’s doing large projects.
This set is a little different from the others on this list because it’s just drills and drivers, but it’s also something that all homeowners really need. The things that this set includes are one lithium ion battery charger, one brushless compact driver/drill, and one brushless ¼ inch impact driver. Both of the tools have LED lights so they can be easily used in the dark.
