My wife is always taking my tools. Since I’m a carpenter, it’s hard for me to go anywhere without my hammer and tape measure. Last Monday I left for work and arrived with my crew. I got out my tool pouch only to find that I was missing my hammer and tape measure. It was crucial to my project so I had to make a half hour drive back home to get my tools. After I got home that night and we sat down for dinner I asked her why she used my tools. She told me she wanted to hang a picture and needed the hammer for the nail and the tape measure to find the stud. She had just forgotten to put it back. I decided she needed her own tools.
My tool collection has been an on going selection of over 20 years worth of buying and trading. I began to wonder what tools my wife used the most this way I didn’t need to buy 20 years worth of tools. So I called up my local home improvement center and talked to the sales representative.
I explained my situation to the sales representative and asked him if they had any woman’s tool kits. I expected a laugh but instead got an answer I didn’t expect.
“Yeah we have those, they just came in”. I wasn’t sure if he was joking or not. Then he explained Stanley tools just came out with the Stanley Do-it-Herself Tool Kit. It was a collection of tools for women. I told him to hold a set for me and I took a ride to the store.
Once I got to the store and seen the Stanley Do-it-Herself Tool Kit I was surprised. I expected to see a collection of small tools or pink hammers. Instead I found a great collection of necessary tools.
These were tried and true tools that you use around the house in a nice tool bag. All of the high quality tools that Stanley FatMax are known for were inside. I was surely impressed and bought the whole set for a little over $100. The price was just right.
When I gave the set of tools to my wife, I received a lot of fanfare. She was so excited and impressed that I got some special treatment that week. As the days passed I watched to see which tools she used the most.
The first tool she used was the Stanley® Stud Sensor 100™. This finds the studs when hanging pictures. And she hung some pictures that day. Using the 16 oz. Curved Claw One-Piece Steel Hammer she easily set nails through the wall into the studs.
We do a lot of crafts in our home and that requires a lot of glue. While we already have a set of glue guns she found the Stanley Trigger Feed Hot Melt Glue Gun better than the other brand we had. It flowed out precisely when needed and didn’t make a mess.
When we had an electrical problem with a switch a few days later, my wife didn’t have to call me. She got out her Multi-Bit Ratcheting Screwdriver with 6 Assorted Bits from Stanley. It made quick work of the switch and my wife replaced it. I found out a few days later when I seen the switch package in the garbage. She boasted how she replaced it all by herself.
I would definitely recommend to anyone the Stanley® Do-it-Herself Tool Set. Even if you’re not a girl, you can benefit from the tool set. It’s a great way to start out with your own set of tools for a good price. You get a great set of tools for a good price, who can argue with that?
