Cordless Finish Nail Gun5. Mitre Saw

Buy the best you can afford.  This is another saw that I didn’t think I would use as often as I do.  It is fabulous for all sorts of jobs from building picture frames to building furniture to framing sheds and houses.  I didn’t buy the brand I wanted to because it was twice the price of the one I bought and someone told me that if I wasn’t a contractor I really didn’t need to spend the extra cash.  WRONG!  Tools are a lifelong investment, buy the best you can afford and you will not regret it.

6. Finish Nail Gun

This was initially a splurge buy for me. I was doing my bathroom reno and figured that by the time I rented one of these for 3 weekends, I’d have the tool half paid for so I bought one.  I love, love, love this tool.  I use it on all sorts of projects and it is a blast to use.  I bought a DeWalt cordless version because I didn’t want to lug compressor tanks around and I’m so glad I did.  I highly recommend buying one of these.
