Pink Tool Belt Video
Hi, thanks for stopping by. I am Tim Carter from AsktheBuilder.com. I am doing a little bit of work on my deck today. When I work on projects like this, I prefer to have all my tools with me. So I want to talk a little about tool belts and how they can save you a lot of time.
This particular tool belt reminds me of the one I have 35 years ago when I first got in the business. This one is made out of leather and has four primary pockets, two on each hip. It also has the center pouch typically used for a tape measure. This pocket makes the tape nice and handy.
The hip pockets normally have the front pocket slightly smaller then the back pocket. The front pocket is ideal for nails and screws or smaller tools. The bigger pockets work great for your standard tools, like a level and pliers.
On this belt, there is a leather loop on the side for holding a hammer. And two slots for nail sets and a pocket for a carpenter’s pencil. On the other side, there is a special pocket for a cell phone. Okay, that wasn’t on my tool belt from 35 years ago. Cell phones weren’t around.
Tool belts will save you a lot of time and money by having a lot of your tools handy.
Wait a minute! Are you laughing at my tool belt? It's the color. Don't be a color hater. It is just lightish-red.
