Emergency Preparedness – Tool Time.
“The hot water was dripping, so we called a plumber. Can we send you the bill,” asked the renter?
“You called in a plumber on a Sunday night because of a drip,” replied the landlord?
For well under $110 anyone can buy a $30 wrench and a $.25 washer to fix a faucet drip problem. Thereafter, the wrench can be put to other excellent uses, saving its purchase price countless times.
Home heating, cooling, lighting, sprinkler, disposal, drainage, laundry, dishwasher, stereo, pet, telephone, alarm, furniture, carpet, window, computer, wall, door, floor, chimney, roof, indoor, outdoor, cabinet, musical instrument, battery operated, small engine powered, recreation, automobile, bicycle, tricycle, moped, roller blade, etc., etc., etc., items need tweaking or repair at times. Having pliers, screwdrivers, saws, wrenches, hammers, glue gun – simple tools to get the job done is a worthy investment. If the first experience costs $30 for a tool, $1.50 for parts, and three hours time to do what a professional could in 20 minutes, do-it-yourselfers become self-reliant for life in that thing – if you don’t loose the tool. Best free education is at your local home center, hardware store, or the neighbor that had your problem last week.
YOU CAN DO IT. Buy your wife a lawn edger for her next birthday, and be prepared to use it.
