Essential tools

Brought to you by TheSurvivalMom posting at

Among other tips, she says:

These are the basics the Paranoid Dad would pack first.
  • Claw hammer. This multi-use tool can be used from hammering nails to demolition.
  • Set of screwdrivers, both Phillips and straight. There should be different sizes of each type. Larger screwdrivers can be useful for prying and chiseling.
  • Pair of lineman's pliers, often called by the trade name, Kleins. These are especially useful because they combine the flat surface of regular pliers with a cutting edge. Make sure your pair can cut through steel in case they're needed to cut through wire or nails.
  • Utility knife, aka box cutter, with extra blades in the handle.
  • Wood saw and a hacksaw. The hacksaw can be used to cut through steel, plastic and wood, but the wood saw is useful for cutting through large branches and small trees.
  • Crescent wrenches in two sizes, small and medium.
