O/T Gift Idea?

Ok, my cousin is getting married on Sunday. What are some good starter tools for a new hubby - you know like for honey do projects and junk like that[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]? We got him a cordless screwdriver and a cordless drill, but it just doesn't seem like enough. He has plenty of wrenching tools, but I think he's gonna need more around-the-house type stuff.

Dad here,
Wife and I got a shop vac for cleaning up the messes made doing those Honey Do list stuff. She even put it on the list.

Get him a book on fixing things around the house. Also, maybe a handheld power saw, level, stud finder, or tape measure.

P.S. What brand of screwdriver and drill did you get him, I'd recommend anything by Dewalt. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

My truck ain't leaking oil it's marking it's territory!

Re: O/T Gift Idea?

First of all, is this guy mechanically competent? If not, tools could do more harm than good. If he's never turned a wrench or a screw, I'd recommend life insurance [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img].
