As a DIY (Do-It-Your-Self) remodeler, cabinet maker, pin striper, tile and mosaic builder, I need tools that are inexpensive and easy to use. Tools listed here are tools I already own or their recommended upgrades. Like most of you I have purchased tools thinking I was going to save money only to find that they were next to worthless. You have my guarantee that I will never list a tool here that does not have value for the money spent.
