8 Essential Workshop Tools

Setting up a workshop is an iterative process. Here are 8 essential tools you can get for your workshop. We have narrowed them down for use in mechanical engineering and repair. 

  1. Hammer

    A good hammer is essential for any workshop. You'll use it for everything from knocking out workpieces to breaking items apart. Look for a hammer with a comfortable handle and a sturdy head. 

  2. Screwdriver set

    A screwdriver set is a must-have for any workshop. It should include a variety of sizes and types, including Phillips head, flat head, and Torx.

  3. Wrench set

    A wrench set is critical. It should include a variety of sizes and types, such as adjustable wrenches, combination wrenches, and socket wrenches. Get a good set of wrenches that does not round out the nuts. 

  4. Pliers

    Pliers are a versatile tool that can be used for everything from cutting wire to gripping and turning bolts. Look for a set that includes a variety of sizes and types, such as needle-nose pliers, slip-joint pliers, and diagonal pliers.

  5. Level

    A level is a simple but essential tool for ensuring that your projects are straight and true. It's especially useful for hanging shelves and other items on walls. Levels are also useful if you run a lathing and machining shop, in which case you need higher precision equipment measured in mm/M for accuracy.

  6. Power drill

    A power drill is a must-have for any workshop. It can be used for drilling holes, driving screws, and even sanding and polishing surfaces. With advanced technology, go with the battery system as it will form the base of more convenient work.

  7. Saw

    A saw is an essential tool for cutting wood, metal, and other materials. Look for a saw with a comfortable handle and a sturdy blade.

  8. Protective gear

    It's important to protect yourself while working in the workshop. Invest in a good pair of safety glasses, earplugs, and gloves to keep yourself safe while working.
