30 UNIQUE TOOLS YOU NEED NOW!
This saw is awesome! If you’re in need of a saw that can make very intricate cuts both on a mount or being hand-held this little guy is for you. It’s great for small finishing projects and crafting projects alike.
Nothing like cutting through your power cord when using a saw. Am I right? Gosh how I wish this wasn’t a common occurrence but it happens. This cord can mount to the ceiling and with one quick pull be out-of-the-way. Must have accessory for any shop or garage monkey.
Wood glue is a staple in my house. Clogged glue heads are also something I find all the time. This glue dispenser is awesome allowing the glue to dispense evenly even when there’s a little left. Also you can dispense the gel vertically with no drips. Cool huh!
Honestly can not think on a single person who wouldn’t benefit from having this on hand. When ever I need a little paint touch up this puppy is ready to go with the exact amount of paint I need. Might be a little pricey for the size but the convince is amazing.
Sometimes we all could use an extra pair of hands. Right! This clamp is amazing at helping with all of the angular projects like making boxes and frames.
Bench Dog 10-035 Bench Cookie Work Grippers, 4-Pack: $9.99
Aside from this being a fun gadget to own it is one of the most versatile tools for use around the house. You can look down your garbage disposal for the ring you just dropped, inside your car engine to see where the leak is and on and on. I love to see whats clogging my gutters both in the gutter and in the drain.One of the more unique tools. It’s going to be your new favorite.
I don’t know about you but I get supper annoyed when replacing screws in computers or eyeglasses. Not having a magnetized screw driver in some cases is frustrating. Delcast has made this simple tool to help with that problem. It just magnetize’s the drivers enough to not drop the screws on the floor. Love it!
You may be thinking that I’ve lost my mind. Not so. Taping before painting is the most time-consuming part for me. Whether I’m painting trim or the walls I get a crisp line every time. One of the unique tools that is not a must have but saves time if you do have it!
In my mind this tool goes hand in hand with any painting project. Super useful and versatile in many DIY situations.
Incra T-RULE06 6-Inch Precision Marking T-Rule: $25.99
If you do any sort of DIY or wood working then you feel my pain with the hole saw drill bits. Is it just me or are they a pain in the ass? With this hole cutter you can make hole as big as you want them and where you want them.
Work lights are super important but get hot and need an electrical plug. Here is a solution to that problem. A magnetic wonder light! It attach’s to anything metal with ease. With four different light setting you are sure to find a setting to fit your need’s. Looks like a unique tool if I do say so myself.
Honestly I don’t own this one,but, a friend does and I’ve used it. As far as convenience goes this drill delivers. Attach a drill bit and screw driver bit, climb your ladder and put up the new curtain rods in one fail swoop.
Carpenter Space Pen by Fisher: $23.99
Have you ever needed to write something with the pen held upside down? Or maybe underwater, on pictures, at an angle or on a greasy surface? Yup I answered yes to a few of these. That’s why owning a pen that can do all of that is a must in my tool box and car. As far as unique tools go this one is pretty special.
1000-Use 3-Pack Teflon PTFE Sheet for Heat Press Transfers, 16 x 20” Heat Resistant Craft Sheet, 100% Non Stick Protects Iron and Work Area Even With Messy Glue, Ink or Paint!: $11.99
Could you ever use an assistant while trying to drill through wood? No it’s not a weird question at all. So many times when I’ve been working alone on my house I needed an extra pair of hands to ensure I could drill straight holes. This clamp does exactly that. I also use it when I need a little help with closing the corners of projects.
It’s a brush for glue. Do you have one? Yeah, didn’t think so. Super handy for filling holes in wood as well when you don’t want to mare the surface. Not necessary one of the most different or unique tools on this list but one of the most useful.
Ever drop a screw down into something and you can’t retrieve it? How about pulling a nail out of a hole? You need special long pliers. These do remind me of dental pliers a little. Maybe that’s why I love them so!
Sierra Tools Battery-Operated Liquid Transfer Pump, Model# JB5684: $16.49
In a zombie apocalypse this pump may be you life saver…If you believe in zombie’s. For your lawn mower this pump helps you set up your mower for the long winters nap. It’s also useful for folks who own aquariums.
After deciding I was going to make a green house for my in-laws out of pluming pipes, I need insurance that my holes I needed to drill where going to be accurate. I searched for a solution and found this little dude. It is super easy to use and works at ensuring I drill straight every time.
DEWALT DWARAFS Right Angle Flex Shaft, 12″: $24.98
This could quite possibly be the best tool on this list! Have you ever tried to get your drill in a tight spot where you absolutely had to use it and just couldn’t? Holy Moly has this happened to me like 100 times. Almost nothing is more frustrating! With this flex shaft you can bend around corners and fit into impossibly tight spaces like a knife through hot butter! Buy this thing!!!!
When you need two pieces of something to fit together perfectly but one of those pieces are as wobbly looking as a jello mold look no further! This is a super simple solution to that exact problem. I love it for making intricate molding fit together perfectly.
Another measuring tool. I do not personally own this tool but have used it while helping a friend with the construction of a table. It is pretty handy if you need to mark the exact center of the side of something relatively thin. Honestly it did feel a little cheaply made for the price.
Do you enjoy splinters or cuts from metal flashing? Nope me neither. THESE GLOVES ARE THE SHIZ NIT! I have yet to get a splinter when handling my rough edged plywood. No only are they cheap but extra reliable. Mom these gloves are for you (My poor mom always gets splinters when she helps me DIY). This is one of the unique tools you’ll be happy you own.
Just like the flex shaft I mentioned earlier these screw drivers can fit into some tight spaces. I have been saved by them so many times. Really these screw drivers are tools you didn’t know you needed until you are already super frustrated and throwing things. Or maybe that’s just me? Totally worth having in hand.
Do you like your thumbs? I thought so. I really love this nail setter for the simple fact that I can hammer in nails and not worry about my own nails (pun intended). Seriously this is one of my favorite purchases because it prevents something I hate, PAIN.
While I don’t own every single tool on this list I have used them all. Some of them are invaluable and I simply love them. I’m sure there are a few dandy’s on here you may have never even heard of. Try a few of these unique tools out and see how much you’ve been missing!
