Tools for the Handyman, Do It Yourselfer or for one off jobs.
These entry level tools are usually quite basic, good for one off jobs and a lot cheaper than professional tools. If you don’t have to rely on exact measurements and using them only occasionally then these instruments present good value.
The downside is they usually don’t have the same lifespan as higher quality tools when used on a daily basis.
Also to be considered is that some of these instruments are not meant to be repaired when broken and the repair costs are often higher than the initial outlay for the tool in the first place .
We do not recommended these tools for the professional Tradesman.
