Women's Tools

The article above is from the current issue of ALL YOU. It is a wonderful article on starting a tool box just for YOU! ************************************ I just happen to have MY own tool box that Mr. Ken started for me several Christmas' ago. I picked out the box so I could have all the little spots for my tools. I love having my own tool box, now I don't have to truck downstairs and find something in Ken's box. The best part is that MY box lives in my sewing room, so all I have to do is walk down the hall to get an item. ********************************* The article recommends: 1. Hammer--lightweight 2. Screwdriver--A multibit ratchet 3. Hardware--screws, nails, eye hooks, cup hooks etc. 4. Adhesives--tapes, glues, paper 5. Pliers--one with a comfy grip on slip joint and needle nose ones for twisting 6. Level--a 9-inch torpedo level with a magnetic strip 7. Tape measure--A standard 25 foot model with 1/16- inch fractions 8. Lightweight drill--a cordless, 8-volt lithium-ion device 9. Socket and Ratchet set-- Look for a set with standard and metric measurements, plus a high number of "teeth" for strength and durability 10. My recommendation-- Sandpaper--different grades. The lower the grit the rougher it is. Goggles probably would be a good thing to have also. The article also suggests checking the Father's days sales for good bargains. **As you can see I have gathered most of what they have suggested. After reading the article, I looked through my box and I am missing a couple of things which I'll pick up at a later date. But I do have everything else. ~Keep on Dreaming~

  4. I have my OWN tool drawer that NO ONE is allowed to touch without permission. Hubby's nickname is 'Mr. Stop & Drop It', lawdy knows where things end up with him.

    I even have my g'ma Maggie's lady digging shovel ... this is off limits to EVERYONE.

    Hope this finds you enjoying spring ...

    Have a beautiful day ~
