If you have someone that you know going into the trades industry and they are going into an educational and training program where they will need some of their own tools, there are a few things that you can get them that can make things a lot easier. You want them to be prepared for all of the work that they could have ahead of the, along with all of their training and practice. Here are some of the tools that would be great gifts as they start their journey.

Electronic Measuring device

Instead of always having to get out a tape measure and trying to get someone help hold it, a tool that scans an automatically measures can help save time and efficiency well working. If a wall, piece of wood or another item has to be measured, and you don't have to find someone to help hold the tape measure for a long distance or you are having a hard time fitting the tape measure into the space, these are issues that won't come up with an electronic option. You just point and it measures.

Pull Gauge

Measure the amount of force it takes to push something or the amount of pull required to pull something is important in the construction industry, especially for someone who plans on becoming some type of building contractor on a small or large scale. A push-pull gauge is a more expensive tool to give, but a great tool that will be used and appreciated over time.

Stud Finder

When doing reconstruction projects on a commercial building or home, or trying to find where the supporting beams are after drywall has been posted, a stud finder is fast and efficient. This is something small that you can easily pick up a local home improvement store, but will get a lot of use over time.

If the person has a list of tools and item that they will need to have you can start with that list. If there are things that they have noticed they will need as they started working in the field, getting an apprenticeship or co-op, or that they want, then these are other items that you want to put on the list. There are a lot of different things that will come up as they are learning and developing their career as a contractor, so get them the items that will help them along the way.

About Me
Developing Your Formal Education

For years, I struggled with my job. I was really tired of working somewhere that I knew people didn't appreciate me, so I began thinking about ways to make things better. A friend of mine mentioned the possibility of going back to school, but that seemed difficult too. However, after meeting with a school counselor, I could tell that things would be better if I just got started. On this website, I wanted to share more information about heading back to school as an adult, and why you shouldn't worry about taking those first steps. Read more on this website for awesome advice.
