When it comes to using tools around the house, all of us know how to use a nail and hammer. There are even a few of us who know how to use power drills, but that's as far as it goes. In fact, you may be one of the many people who have a handyman on speed dial just in case anything goes wrong- and there's nothing wrong with that. But how clueless are you really when it comes to the tools we use in and around our houses? Can you identify the 40 we're about to show you, or do you keep asking your plumber, gardener and electrician "What's that?" every time they pull out something new?
Like we said, we're testing your household tools knowledge. While most of the tools are easy items that you've learned about long before you hit puberty, some are not so easy. So, we've added some hints to this quiz that will help you out if you get in a jam. Are you ready for us to find out if you can replace your handyman (or woman) if he or she isn't available, or if you should invest in a 'Household Tools for Dummies' book?
