Here's an epic tool guide setting out all the different types of tools including hand tools, power tools, fasteners, gardening tools, measuring tools and a huge collection of tools for speicfic home improvement jobs.

A huge set of different tools.

The two main tool categories are power and hand tools. Power tools are any tool that relies on a power source such as battery, electricity, gas or something else other than human effort. Within each main type are many different tools with specific functions or purposes.

Another way that tools are classified is by job. In other words, tools are organized by the project such as floor installation, painting, woodworking etc.

Lastly, while not technically tools, fasteners (screws, nails, etc.) are integral to tool work in that they are necessary for completing jobs and projects that rely on tools.

Below is our epic tool guide listing out individual power and hand tools as well as fasteners and then a useful section setting out tools by job.

Table of Contents

A. Types of Power Tools

1. Drills

BLACK+DECKER 20V MAX Cordless Drill / Driver, 3/8-Inch (LDXC)

Other than a hammer, most folks own a drill. Given the amount of junk we need to assemble, a power drill is a must-have item. In fact, I probably use our drill more often than the hammer.

What is a drill?

A drill is a machine used to push an object or material into something in order to create an opening or space. Drills are often powered by hand, but can also be powered by electricity or battery.  Battery-powered drills are most common these days.  No more fussing with cords.

There&#;s an overwhelming number of drills to choose from; enough to make your head spin like a drill bit. There&#;s no need to spin, however, if you know the reason why you need this kind of power strips tool in the first place. Once you&#;ve drilled down your purpose, all that&#;s left is to consider among the three main drill types.

You can also find other types of drills categorized beyond the primary group. Drills differ in usage, power source, motor type, features, speed, and accessories.

We published an epic drill guide setting out all the different types of drills here.

2. Saws

SKIL Circular Saw with Single Beam Laser Guide, 15 Amp//4"

Saws are a pretty broad tool category. Most saws are a power saw like the circular saw pictured above.

Generally speaking, what is a saw?

Saws are used to cut through things. The most common kind of saw is a hand saw, but there are also power saws that are powered by electricity, battery or gasoline. Saws can be used for many different things like cutting wood, tile, concrete and metal.  Most types of saws are different based on shape and movement of the blade which dictates what it&#;s designed to cut.

We&#;re not going to list all the different types of power saws here because we published a separate guide on saws here.

Needless to say, power saws are a very popular power tool. Some folks own any different power saws &#; table, chain, circular, track, etc.

Speaking of those saws, do you know which type is the most popular? I&#;ll tell you anyway. It&#;s the table saw which is searched by folks on Google approx. , times per month in the US. The next most popular is chainsaw followed by circular, skill and track saws.

What type of power saw you opt for depends on what you do. A good starting power saw is a circular saw like the one pictured above because it is so versatile.

Chainsaws are an interesting saw to buy because unless you chop a lot of wood or make large stump carvings or demo houses regularly, there&#;s not a whole you can do with it. But what do I know&#; I don&#;t own a chainsaw. Maybe if I bought one I&#;d have that &#;aha&#; moment and wonder how I ever got along without it.

3. Power Sanders

BLACK+DECKER Random Orbit Sander, 5-Inch (BDERO)

What is a power sander?

A power sander will help you stay sane.  It efficiently sands wood, tile and metal and are powered by electricity or battery.

If you think using a manual screwdriver instead of a drill is bad, think again. Sanding by hand versus using a power sander is nuts. I&#;ve hand-sanded my fair share of wood and there&#;s nothing like a simple power sander to save the day.

I realize there are some super expensive power tools out there but I&#;m often surprised hjust how inexpensive so many of them are as well. Power sanders (and drills) are such examples where spending $40 to $ can make your life infinitely easier.

Before I forget, you should also know the example sander above is one of many different types of sanders.

4. Nail Guns

NuMax SFR Pneumatic 21 Degree /2" Full Round Head Framing Nailer Ergonomic and Lightweight Nail Gun with Tool-Free Depth Adjust and No Mar Tip

What is a nail gun?

A nail gun uses the power of a compressed air or gas to shoot a nail into something. A nail gun looks like a large pistol and is used for fastening wood or plastic materials.

Not every household has a nail gun, but if you frame or construct regularly, it&#;s a worth investment.

Actually, you can pick up popular nail guns for under $ but if you want high quality, expect to pay a few hundred bucks.

These days many power tools are cordless, which is convenient. I&#;m not that keen walking around high up with a cord wrapping around my legs.

A closely related power tool is the staple gun which shoots staples instead of nails. For some homeowners, a staple gun may be more useful (Christmas lights anyone?).

5. Power Ratchet Sets

V Cordless Electric Ratchet Wrench Set, JUEMEL 3/8" Power Ratchet Wrench 46 N·m RPM Variable Speed w/ 2-Pack Ah Li-Ion Batteries, Fast Charger, 7 Sockets, 2 Screwdrivers and 1/4" Adapter

What is a ratchet?

A ratchet is a small hand or power tool with a gear on it that drives screws, nails, nuts and bolts into various hard materials.  They function similarly to screwdrivers but are easier to use.

Not nearly as common as other power tools listed here, but if you use a ratchet set regularly, especially if you work on cars frequently, you might find getting a cordless power ratchet tool is worth it.

I doubt I&#;d ever get such a tool&#; a hand-powered ratchet set works just fine for me.

Here&#;s the thing about cordless&#; you have to keep them powered up. Every new cordless tool you buy you need to expand your power-up system so that when you do reach for the the tool it works. A cordless drill or ratchet set is useless if it has no power.

6. Lathes

WEN Amp 8" by 12" Variable Speed Mini Benchtop Wood Lathe

What is a lathe?

A lathe is a machine that uses a rotating motion to turn an object.  Why use a lathe?  With an object such as a chunk of wood or metal turning or rotating quickly, it can be shaped with shaping tools.

I first used a lathe in high school. I loved it. It&#;s amazing what you can make from a spinning piece of wood.

Lathe tools are also used for metal working, metal spinning, glass working, and woodworking. These tools are so-called because they&#;re used on a lathe, a shaping machine used for shaping a wide range of materials and used in a wide range of applications.

Check out this list of the different types of lathe tools.

7. Compressor (Air Tools)

CRAFTSMAN Air Compressor, 6 Gallon, Pancake, Oil-Free with 13 Piece Accessory Kit (CMECK)

8. Air Tools

Once you have the compressor, you actually need to get the tools.

You can buy air tools individually or as kits like this 4-in-1 air tool kit that includes a drive impact wrench, drive air ratchet, air hammer with chisels and an air grinder.

This is a great air tool starter kit plus it&#;s conveniently all stored in one large case.

Brief tool history

Tool use among humans goes as far back as million years when the earliest stone tools known as the Oldowan were made in Gona, Ethiopia. These stone tools were only as big as a fist and were primarily used for pounding and cutting through tough animal hide to consume the meat and marrow.

For nearly a million years, the hominids made such stone tools whenever the need arose but dropped them behind after using them. Such tools were also useful in allowing our distant ancestors to be more adaptable to a wide variety of habitats.

The tools and our species evolved roughly million years ago with the era of the Homo erectus. They used rudiment hand axes and cleavers and carried the tools around with them instead of just dropping them behind.

We&#;ve come a long way since then but we&#;re still as reliant (or even more so) on a wide variety of tools to get us through the day. Even the most basic and simplest of tools have helped push our civilization forward.

Categories allow to organize products into hierarchical structures. They enable creating multiple classifications of products for shop navigation and other purposes.

Products can be in any number of categories and there can be multiple category hieararchies for different purposes or channels. Categories are embedded in the product search so that you can filter products by their assignment to categories, including products in child categories. Categories are also an own, customizable resource that you can extend with own content, workflow, and metadata. Relevant search engine optimization fields are built-in, for example uniqueness-checked and internationalizable URL components ("slugs"). Since they are an API resource per category they scale well into very large numbers of categories and the Merchant Center is also well prepared for managing such large classifications. Finally, a full text search with autosuggest over all categories and their own content is available via the GraphQL API.

Deciding how to model your categories for navigation and other purposes is an important part of working with the platform. For more information, see the Product Modeling Guide.
