Only A True Handyman Can Name These Basic Tools!

Being good around the house is an important skill that everyone should learn. One of the first things to do is get to know the tools that will be used when doing a little bit of DIY around the house. We wanted to put together a little quiz so that everyone could check just how much they know about being a handyman around the house!

What we've done is put together some of the most basic household tools that people can expect to use when they're doing some DIY. We're not going to name any of these tools though, as we want to see how many people can actually name them all. It may sound pretty simple at first, but we think that a lot of people will actually struggle more than they think they will! Only the people that have done a lot of DIY around the house will be able to get 100% on this one.

So, if all the handymen out there are ready to go, we think it's about time that we dove straight into the quiz. Let's get started to see who out there is the real handyman, and which of us is actually just pretending to know what it is we're doing around the house!

Question 1

Name This Tool!

Making sure that materials stay together is an important part of any DIY project, which is why this tool will be used more than most others! By turning it around and around, any handyman out there will be able to ensure that their home doesn't end up completely falling apart!

Question 2

Name This Tool!

Anybody that has started up a project in their own home will know how important it is to get everything right, that precision is what makes or breaks a DIY obsession. This is what people will use to make sure that everything is exactly the length that it needs to be.

Question 3

Name This Tool!

Sometimes people just need a little bit of brute force. Sure, don't go mental and attack the wall with one of these things, but just a few firm taps and this tool will have done its job. The back end of it can be used to remove any mistakes as well!

Question 4

Name This Tool!

Taking on a DIY project will likely see a handyman enter into some darker places than usual, or at the very least lead them into tight areas that light can't get to as easily. When somebody needs to really see what they're looking at, this is what they turn to.

Question 5

Name This Tool!

Everyone knows that it can get a little bit dangerous when attempting to do physical work at home, so make sure that there are no children around when pulling this thing out. Make sure that too much isn't taken off either because it can't be put back on after it is!

Question 6

Name This Tool!

When a Handy Man isn't using force to smash something into place, they're using a tool like this to lever them in! By placing one end on the metal nut and placing pressure onto the other end, these tools can be used to bring various materials together and into one piece.

Question 7

Name This Tool!

Our hands can be pretty cumbersome at times, so we need something else that can get a hold of things a lot smaller for us! This tool is a great all-purpose thing that can help turn and twist smaller items that will be utilized regularly during any type of DIY project.

Question 8

Name This Tool!

There was a time when people had to do everything manually, but thankfully we don't live in that time anymore! Rather than expecting the Handy Man of today to manually put holes in the places needed on a piece of material, we hand them one of these that does it for them!

Question 9

Name This Tool!

When we think about it, it would make sense that pretty much everything on this planet is made universal. This would ensure that, just like with tools, if the human being had the right thing they could just get started. As long as it's the right size, these tools can be slotted into the corresponding hole anywhere around the world!

Question 10

Name This Tool!

This is another tool that is used to ensure that everything is being kept precise, that the Handy Man isn't heading towards a major problem. Yes, when somebody is using one of these, they can be sure that everything will be exactly as it should be. It uses air bubbles to do its job.

Question 11

Name This Tool!

The thing about taking on a personal project or working on something at a personal household is that the materials can't often be bought to the exact proportions. Tools like this are used to make sure that anything using electricity will have everything down to the right specifications so that there aren't extras about.

Question 12

Name This Tool!

This sort of work can end up being pretty dangerous with the amount of movement involved, which is why tools like this exist. There's no chance that things will end up sliding around or going missing if they've been put in place by something like this. A very valuable tool.

Question 13

Name This Tool!

There's no point in working on something if there's a chance that the Handy Man will hurt themselves. It is key to ensure that the proper protection is put in place, which is exactly the point of this tool. It's always great to take the precautions needed to stay safe.

Question 14

Name This Tool!

Now we're starting to get into the fancier stuff, but a lot of people like to do their own work around the house these days, which is why these end up getting used from time to time. A great little tool for making sure that things are all hooked up properly.

Question 15

Name This Tool!

Not every tool out there is about putting something together or keeping someone safe, they can be about keeping things clean as well. Anyone that has had to make sure that things stay together and don't go missing has used these in the past. They're invaluable to any Handy Man out there!

Question 16

Name This Tool!

While we have all definitely used nails and screws in the past, it can be nice to make something that doesn't have them on display! This tool is all about sticking things together without any nails or screws left on display once the project has been finished. Instead, it squirts out a substance that sticks the materials together.

Question 17

Name This Tool!

Despite a Handy Man's best efforts, they're going to make mistakes from time to time, and that's exactly what this tool is great for. If something dangerous needs covering up, this is what people should turn to. Definitely a must for anyone that is undertaking a project that might prove dangerous.

Question 18

Name This Tool!

Now we're getting to the fun stuff! This heavy-duty tool should only be used by those who actually know what they're doing. Without proper training, this is something that can prove genuinely fatal, both to the user and those around them. This tool is only for the really big projects.

Question 19

Name This Tool!

This is a classic tool, one that has been used by people throughout history. That being said, it is often used for destruction rather than creation. It allows the user to rip two things apart with ease, using the pressure to lever apart different types of materials that have been stuck together.

Question 20

Name This Tool!

Being able to have a powerful tool like this is a genuine pleasure. It makes what was a fairly boring set of actions into something almost fun! There's no end to the amount of enjoyment that a true Handy Man will get out of using one of these to finish off a project.

Question 21

Name This Tool!

Rather than just being a construction tool, this can be used in the kitchen as well. It's best used by somebody who knows what they're doing, as those who don't can quickly find things getting out of control. Take our warning on this one and make sure it's used properly!

Question 22

Name This Tool!

While it isn't great for thicker materials, this tool can really help when trying to affix something thinner to something thicker. There's nothing particularly special about this tool and we would be surprised if a lot of people didn't use them while they were a lot younger, although they probably shouldn't have!

Question 23

Name This Tool!

We've already noted that the most important thing to keep in mind while taking part in some DIY is the safety of the person starting on a project. While this sort of tool is only really needed for the heavy-duty jobs, it offers an amazing level of protection for those that need it.

Question 24

Name This Tool!

Often used for directionless destruction, this is a tool that people can turn to when they need to take something down as fast as possible. Certainly not to be used when trying to do anything precise, but easily the best tool out there when it comes to knocking something down.

Question 25

Name This Tool!

It can be a messy business DIY, so having tools that allow people to get rid of their rubbish is just as important as anything else, This allows people to carry away a lot more of what they don't need than they'd be able to with just their own hands.

Question 26

Name This Tool!

This tool is so important that workers are now finding out that they can sue the company they work for if they haven't been provided for them over the years. Another look at a tool that will save people from a lot of torment in the future if they're properly used.

Question 27

Name This Tool!

While a Sledgehammer is all about taking something down fast and without any precision, this tool is about pinpointing an exact place that a Handy Man wants to take a swing at. Definitely worth investing in one of these if there's a delicate piece of work that needs doing anytime soon.

Question 28

Name This Tool!

Not only can this tool be used to spread around viscous materials, it actually serves as a very good tool when attempting to remove something from a material as well! Used to scrape rather than pry, it's perfect when trying to remove wallpaper before putting something else up on the wall.

Question 29

Name This Tool!

One of the best things about this tool is that it pulls together a lot of different things into one big tool, allowing people to save some space. Not only that, but it means that the Handy Man can get many things done with just a small amount of effort.

Question 30

Name This Tool!

Sometimes it's the simple tools that prove to be the most effective, and this tool definitely gets the job done. This is for making sure that everything is just right, that the precise measurements made earlier actually are just as precise as they need to be for everything to fit together.

Question 31

Name This Tool!

Yet another tool that will allow people to take off any material that they need to get rid of, but be very careful! Not only can it be dangerous to anyone who doesn't know what they're doing, but it can also very easily take off too much material if the user isn't careful!

Question 32

Name This Tool!

By using a little bit of finesse, these can be used to bring two materials together and lock them into place. While some may prefer a method that calls for less skill, these are much more reliable than some of the other methods that are used to keep two materials together.

Question 33

Name This Tool!

Rather than needing any sort of finesse, these will be used when people are ready to start hammering things into place! Yes, there's nothing quite like smashing something into place. It may look and sound destructive, but it's actually a great way of ensuring that things then don't come loose!

Question 34

Name This Tool!

Okay, so there's only really one thing that this might be used for, but it's always good to have it just in case things start to get blocked up. By creating a vacuum, they can push and pull anything that has become stuck within a tube or drain. Very useful!

Question 35

Name This Tool!

More of a situational tool than the others in this quiz, this is one to have round the house just in case they're quickly needed. Sure, they may never get used, but when they're needed, people will be happy they have them stored somewhere in the house for safe keeping!
