Poll: What is your most-used tool?

Re: Poll: What is your most-used tool?

I love my drill, too. But I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I ALWAYS have a Phillips head screwdriver on the go - and I get through a few, by leaving them in different places. I think with old caravans, there are screws everywhere - doors, windows, wood panels, kitchen, lights, everywhere!

Would be close between the Tape Measure, Cordless Drill and lawn mower

Re: Poll: What is your most-used tool?

3 months ago, I would have said my brushless cordless drill, however since that time I purchased a multi tool and have found it to be invaluable for a large variety of renovation tasks. My tip here get one with a quick change tool attachment it is so convenient and worth the extra money in time saved.

Re: Poll: What is your most-used tool?

That's very interesting, @KevinMall! I've always considered getting a multi-tool but have never made the investment. I've heard quite a few good things about them, and I think I'll look at purchasing one in the near future.

 

Thanks for your input.

I was hoping someone would include the good old Philips screw driver, because its the most used posi drive in any drill, no doubt about that

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @tuhoeta. It's a pleasure to have you join us and many thanks for jumping into the conversation.

 

It's funny what we take for granted, isn't it? I had to remove and replace an old door that had flathead screws in the hinges. They had a bit of paint in them and were almost impossible to remove. There wasn't even a question on whether to use them again or not. I simply switched them out for posidrive.

 

It sounds like you are very knowledgeable and I trust there will plenty of advice you can offer our members. We look forward to hearing all about your projects and plans around the house and garden and would encourage you to let us know if you ever need assistance or have something to share. In return, I'm sure you'll find loads of inspiration for those projects as our clever and creative members share their ideas here all the time.
