By having a pair of knippex slip-joint pliers instead!
Although mine are 10"...but they are fantastic
Is there a tool talk thread? Seems like there is an audience. Could lump in the woodworkers and the auto wrenches as well.I got some Irwin groove lock pliers recently. I like those better than channel lock.
Hand saw, hacksaw, Skil saw, level, tape measure, claw hammer. I need to buy a Skil saw. Corded ones are cheap.Even for someone like me that absolutely LOATHES doing repairs and such there is a bare minimum of tools one needs. A complete set of sockets and wrenches. Various pliers (linesmen, needle nose, channel locks, vice grips, etc.) Wire snippers. Cordless that does screws, bolts, drills, etc. Manual set of screwdrivers. A good Eastwing or the like. Rubber mallet. 6' and 12' step ladders.
From there all kinds of optional stuff. Dremel can be handy. Shop vac. A sander of some form. That tool you use to loosen/tighten taps from under the sink. Shovels. Axe/hatchet/brush clearing knife. Leaf blower. At least two 100' outdoor extension cords. Tool belt.
