Hand Tools

A tool is any physical item that can be used to achieve a goal, especially if the item is not consumed in the process. Informally the word is also used to describe a procedure or process with a specific purpose.

Main Features

  • A hand tool is any tool that is not a power tool – that is, one powered by hand (manual labour) rather than by an engine. Some examples of hand tools are hammers, spanners, pliers, screwdrivers and chisels. Hand tools are generally less dangerous than power tools.


  • Hand tools can be divided into several groups:
  • - Laying out tools – Measuring and marking tools
  • - Impact or striking tools (hammers, mallets and sledges)
  • - Twisting tools or fastening tools (wrenches and screwdrivers)
  • - Woodcutting tools (wood saws, planes, wood chisels)
  • - Metal cutting tools (dies, drills, files, punches, reamers, taps)
  • - Holding tools (clamps, pliers, vises)
  • - Safety equipment (goggles, gloves)
  • - Grinding and sharpening tools
  • - Finishing tools and abrasives
