Welcome to KCS Building Tools
In this section you’ll discover answers to any questions which arise when it comes to choosing the right building tools
Getting Tooled Up
It’s easy enough to buy the wrong or unnecessary building tools. How many garden sheds are full of rusting pieces of equipment which have been used once, or not at all. We’ll show you how to equip yourself with exactly the right ones for your job, Apart from low cost items that you expect to use only once and then throw away, it’s almost never advisable to buy cheap low quality building tools. If you expect to be using them a lot, you should invest in quality, but quality may come cheaper than you might think
Second hand building tools may be nearly as good as new and might even be bought more cheaply than lower quality ones bought new. And if you’re expecting to use a particular piece of equipment only once or twice you’re better off hiring a good one rather than buying a cheap one. That way you’ll get better equipment for your job and for less outlay-
but as with everything else to do with DIY supplies you need to know what to look for, and that’s where we’ll be helping. We’ll be telling you how to get the right building tools for your job at the lowest cost
And it’s not just about saving on the cost of the kit. It’s about making sure you have the right building tools to make the job easier, or even possible at all
Do you know what an ‘Orbitool’ is.
We do -Some DIY enthusiasts, (usually the male ones), are too proud to ask the retailer or anyone else for advice about building tools. But you may find the answers here without needing to, and you certainly will if you email us to ask. You’ll at least be able to gain enough knowledge to go along to the retailer and have an informed discussion.
You’ll complete your job better, quicker and at fraction of the tooling cost by choosing the right tools and equipment. When you come to use them there’ll be a lot less muttering and swearing if you have the right ones, and with the added bonus that you won’t be left with a shed full of useless junk.
Incidentally, an ‘Orbitool’ is used for deburring the internal cut of a metal pipe. So that’s cleared that up.

Advice and answers
We could write an encyclopedia about building tools. And the bewildering array of equipment advertised in catalogues and on the Internet is daunting. We’ll be featuring regular advice on what we think you need to know. But it’s sure that you’ll want advice on some particular aspect of choosing or buying the right building tools for you own project before we’ve featured it. So don’t wait until it appears
