Toolkits are the best bang for your buck! Invest in tool kits that share batteries so that all your tools are streamlined and charging several batteries at once isn't a headache.

Protection

PROTECT YOUR EARS! Using power tools can be damaging to your ears over time. While there are lots of great industry favorites to protect you, we like to keep it more multi-functional and use noise cancelling headphones you can use on a daily and while you’re getting your DIY on. Plus, who doesn’t like listening to tunes while you work?
