Hand Tools Needed for Completing DIY Electrical Wiring Projects in Your Home

May 8, 2010

 

 

 

Let’s talk about some of the basic hand tools that you are going to need to complete your DIY electrical wiring project in your home. Having the right tool for the job will help you complete your task quicker and safer. As an electrician, I”m exposed to lots of different voltages and environments so I prefer the brand name, professional tools rated for higher voltages. However, you do not need these as a homeowner. You need hand tools with insulated handles rated for a minimum of 250 volts.

Some of the basic hand tools needed to complete your residential DIY electrical wiring projects are:

If you are going to install a meter base, panel or sub-panel you are also going to need:

If you are going to recess boxes into thick lumber or logs then a wood chisel set will be very handy.

Please keep in mind that this is a basic tool list. You may need specialty tools on a per project basis. Are there any other hand tools that you think I missed and need to be added to this list?
