Tool List Suggestions...


Hey Rockers,

Just need a quick tool list to rock.

So far:

SurForm
T-Square
Hole Saw
Drywall Saw
ScrewGun
Hole Scribe (scribe)

(Of course, tape measure, knife, and basics)

Anything you guys suggest for installing drywall?

Thanks.

Lets see.

Bags?
Hammer/hatchet,
Board carrier(Pocket Troll),
drywall cart, lift, Bench, Stilts, Deadman,
two of those things you screw up to hold the end of the board while you hold or deadman the other,
Board lifter,
chalk line,
ripper,
hand screw driver or better one of those stainless steel knives with the built in screwdriver tip to test for fully driven screws and then set those that are not.

Forgot small whisk broom to clean floor before you screw bottom to keep dust out of your eyes kciked up by the motor of the screw gun. I now also wear a "Dust-Bee-Gone" Mask to keep the dusk from clogging my sinuses. Those routers really make fine dust.

A RASP!!! Works great for the outside corners when the pieces aren't exact for the corner bead..
Does anyone find this tool as useful as me?
