Top 10 Cool DIY Tools


Duct Tape

You know it; he loves it. Duct tape is the standard go-to adhesive for every DIYer, and with good reason. This shiny silver material can be used to cover holes in everything from boots to screen doors, and if the tape is applied properly, this sticky adhesive can last for years. It's even required cargo on all space shuttle missions! No, it's not going to permanently patch a leaky radiator hose, but it'll probably work long enough for your DIYer to get his car to the shop. Duct tape is something no handyman can ever have enough of, so it should always be stocked in his toolbox.
