Ideal Hand Tools speaks ideal tools, ideal electrician tools, ideal carpenter tools and ideal trade tools use and maintenance.

Always buy the best tools you can afford as they should be considered a life time investment for the building technician or home owner. These tools are necessary to allow the building technician to respond to most trouble calls he will receive through out the course of the day.

When you have the proper tools preventive maintenance and maintenance can be done in the shortest time frame possible. In most cases this will allow for ongoing comfortable work conditions for the tenants.

The building technician unlike the home owner will need a few specialty tools that the home owner will not. These are test equipment such as C clamp ammeter which will allow electrical current to be measured and tachometers which will allow motor speeds to be determined.

The daily tasks that a building technician will face are for the most part more demading and diverse than that for the home owner.

In Canada the building technician will need a working understanding of both metric and imperial systems as many parts used are manufactured in the USA. The USA I believe is the only country which still uses the metric system.
