Cordless Power Tools and Rechargeable Batteries
The versatile cordless drill is available with a 3/8 inch chuck, however I personally recommend the half inch chuck which will allow me to work with hole saws and larger drill bits. Available options are variable speed and torque settings.
The cordless reciprocating saw is extremely helpful for cutting electrical conduit and pipe, and is great to use when you need to do some demo work, or open up a section of drywall. Be sure to say clear of obstacles such as electrical wiring and plumbing pipes.
The cordless flash light is a must when working in the attic or under a house. Most cordless flashlights come with a sturdy base and adjustable light head to get the light right where you need it.
Head Mounted LED Flashlight
This head mounted LED flashlight has an elastic strap and adjustable lamp that will always shine the light where you are looking and working with your hands. I can't say enough about how great this LED light is for so many work projects where I have used it.
Locate ceiling joists, framing studs, and other obstacles inside the wall. Great to use before you cut open the wall, or when you need to located a stud to anchor something to a wall, such as surface mounted conduit or a ceiling mounted light fixture . The stud finder pictured here also locates metal studs and electrical circuits.
Laser Plumb Bob
This laser light plumb bob is ideal for helping you locate the position of ceiling light fixtures from a for layout. This eliminates the need to use a measuring tape while your up on the ladder, which will save you allot of time.
