A one-handed trigger clamp is such a time and aggro saver. It means you don’t have to stop what you’re doing every two minutes to help too! Can also be used as a spreader. Two tools in one!



A large framing square for marking out accurately and getting your angles right. No more gappy joints…yay!  Looks super-boring, but thank me later!

You can never have too many tape measures and the usual 3 metre ones are often too short. You can’t go wrong with a 5 metre tape measure. A  good old Stanley will always last well too.
