Pro Tip

To handle more projects with fewer tools, add a few multi-tasking tools to your toolbox.

If auger wears thin on end, saw or break it off.

You can also get power drill attachments that sand, grind, strip paint, clean rusty tools or equipment, scrape up tile, remove wallpaper or flooring.

To keep tools rust-free, keep blackboard chalk in toolbox.
