It is that time of the year when you may be considering some spring cleaning, which requires you to do some fixing and repairing things up in your house. If you are an electronics aficionado, you are probably searching for some handy tools to fix your wires and gizmos. 

Please read this extremely helpful guide on what all tools can you consider this season for sprucing things up. 

Screwdrivers

Our houses, electrical equipment, cars, television sets, doors, windows, etc. are all held together by screws. These extremely valuable instruments come in various sizes and can be used in different settings. However, these screws come off quite often, and this can be quite a painful affair for some of us. Imagine we being unable to close the bathroom door simply because the screw holding the door handle has come out! Or the screw of the car door handle is loose, so we cannot shut the former and make our drive safe. 

This is where the humble screwdriver comes in. It fastens things together. You can use it to install a small shelf, put together a small radio set or simply tighten up certain things.

Cordless Drill

As a home manager, you’d like, at certain times, to put up a shelf for placing small objects such as the TV remote, car keys, and much more. This is where a cordless drill comes in. With this hand-held machine, you can drill holes in the wall, kitchen cabinets, etc. and get your work done. Don’t forget to check whether you have a mini-stool at your home while buying this drill. You might need that stool to reach out to remote corners for drilling holes. Also, keep your cordless drill charged at all times. Replace batteries periodically so that your work doesn’t suffer. 

Testers

If you like dabbling in tech and all things electrical, then you would definitely need a tester. A tester is a small hand-held device that can detect electrical current in circuits and equipment. You need this device while assembling your transistor, fixing your TV set or checking your electrical connections. 

To use a tester, apply its one end to the wire, and touch the other end (enclosed in glass) with your finger. If the bulb lights up, this means there is current in the wire. That said, we’d also advise you to wear rubber boots while handling live electrical equipment. 

Allen Wrench 

This being the world of DIY and IKEA, you should seriously consider having an Allen Wrench in your worker’s kit. This L-shaped wrench is used to assemble furniture quickly and efficiently. Allen Wrenches are used where the sockets are hexagonal and are quite a rage in many Australian homes these days. 

Solder Iron

A soldering iron is used to assemble circuit sets, transistors, etc. This extremely simple machine consists of a heating rod and a solder wire. The iron used is heated by plugging it to an electrical source. Once it gets sufficiently heated, apply the wire to its one end, watch it melt, and then apply the iron to the turnouts on the circuit. 

If you have kids, we will request you to keep this device away from them. Since a soldering iron becomes very hot during heating, keep a pail of water nearby. After use, keep your solder iron in its station so that it doesn’t damage things kept nearby. 

Hammer and Nails 

Hammers and nails keep things up and standing in your house. They are chiefly used to assemble furniture, hang picture frames and calendars. To spruce things up, you may consider buying differently colored nails for your cabinet.
