Tools you'll need - Guide and Pictures

If you've just started modding or if you're thinking about modding or starting a DIY project, you need to know what tools and equipment you'll need to help you safely and correctly carry out your task(s).

This thread describes the different types of tools and how they can be used. Included are hand and power tools.

These tools can be used for a variety of different modding or DIY jobs, including PC modding, Metalwork, Wood work, Painting etc.


I've split the tools up in to the following categorys:
  • Clamps and Vices
  • Measuring
  • Saws
  • Drills and drill bits
  • Planers
  • Sanding
  • Painting
  • Safety
  • Miscellaneous

Please, feel free to suggest more tools or a change to the layout / structure.
