Drills differ in terms of their wattage strength and depending on what you will mostly be using it for, you can choose from a hammer drill, rotary drill or a cordless drill amongst others. In order to use your drilling equipment you will need to acquire a good quality set of drill bits. Many drill bit sets come in a handy container to keep them all in place and protected from being damaged by other hardware products in your tool box.

A spanner and socket set is another essential hardware product that no household should be without. These tools are indispensible for simply tightening a loose nut or bolt or for more complex DIY projects. A combination spanner set that is fitted with an open spanner on one end and a closed socket or ring spanner on the other end will prove to be very useful. Much like drill bit sets, these hardware products are also often sold in a set for safekeeping and easy access. Instead of having to buy numerous sockets for all the different sizes, you can simply purchase a socket set that comes with fittings in various sizes - helping to keep your toolbox nice and neat. A set of allen keys are also a type of socket and these hardware products are also indispensible for home use.

Essential hand held tools include screwdrivers, a tape measure, hammer and set of pliers. If you are interested in woodwork, a jigsaw cutter and handheld sander will be necessary for your hardware collection. You will also have to purchase a number of jigsaw blades, as the teeth per inch (TPI) differ from each blade depending on what you will be cutting into. A good set of hand tools such as chisels will also come in handy with woodwork projects. Clamps are another essential hardware product, especially for woodwork as they are necessary to keep the materials in place when machining or when gluing two pieces together.
