Rely on Stanley tools to get the job done right
With a 177 year history, it’s likely your great-grandfather had a Stanley tool or two in his toolbox. Founded in 1843, the Stanley company began as a bolt and door hardware manufacturer. But over time, they moved into producing hand tools for professionals and home handy people alike.
Building a reputation for reliability and innovation, the company has produced millions of tools including hand planes, saws, rulers, chisels, screwdrivers and more, for consumers worldwide.
If you need to update your toolkit, or can think of someone special who’d appreciate an addition to theirs, eBay has a big range of Stanley home hand tools to peruse and purchase, all at great prices.
The right set of spanners
There’s nothing more frustrating than working hard on a project at home only to find you haven’t got the right spanner to complete it. That’s where a great set of Stanley spanners comes in.
As a starter pack, you could opt for a set of five, but if you want to ensure your garage is kitted out right, consider going for the 22 piece set, ensuring you’re never left searching for the ideal spanner again.
While you’re at it, consider investing in a Stanley socket set as well. These will help make the job of fastening various nuts and bolts that much easier. Sets start at 15 pieces but go all the way up to 60+. Many of the larger ones also come with a convenient hard-top storage case to keep your workspace tidy.
A new screwdriver set
This is one area where the sky really is the limit. Stanley screwdrivers come in a huge variety of shapes, sizes and grips. The hardest part is deciding which fit is best for your purpose. If you’re not sure, investing in a set is an excellent way to go. You can be confident that if you choose a Stanley kit, they will withstand those really tough tasks and last for decades to come.
Versatile saw range
Stanley also produces an assortment of hand saws for domestic use, including folding saws as well as pruning saws to keep your bushes and small trees neatly kept. You can also opt for a hacksaw when you need to cut through wood, plastic pipe or metal.
A unique gift – a collectable hand plane
Stanley is well known for their innovative and long-lasting wood planes, with many still in existence hundreds of years on. If you have a passion for woodworking, or have a father, family friend or grandpa who does, a collectable Stanley plane might make a wonderful gift.
