When it comes to tools, versatility is always a welcome bonus and that’s something that heat guns have in spades. A staple for the professional and the domestic DIY lover alike, these make short work of stripping paint amongst many other tasks. In the midst of a cold snap? Heat guns are even handy for defrosting pipes!
Glue guns are also an incredibly versatile piece of kit. Whether you need to make a quick fix or if you require a more permanent solution, they’re ideal for fastening all sorts of materials from wood and plastic to metal and even stone. Glue guns are excellent for use with fabrics too, so you might also want to invest in one if you’re into arts and crafts. Looking to take your woodwork project to the great outdoors? A portable workbench is the solution, providing a flat, sturdy and stable surface for you to get on with your DIY work in the garden. If you do decide to head outside then unless your tools are cordless, extension leads are going to be an absolute must.
If you’re a true DIY buff, nail guns are a great investment and angle grinders will also come in handy. As you’d expect, they’re great for grinding down materials like stone and metal and also helpful for cutting and polishing up objects to achieve a sleek finish. Planers, meanwhile, are great for evening out an uneven wood surface.
Doing DIY is impossible if you can’t see clearly what you’re doing. While you’ll likely be working during the day, torches are handy if you find yourself working under things like cabinets or cupboards.
