We've all been there. It starts with a light that keeps going out, or a ceiling fan you decide you want to install yourself instead of paying an electrician $300 to put up. The fan came with directions - no problem. Four hours and $500 later you've outfitted yourself as a professional electrician from the local Home Depot. So, what happens now? Well, if you haven't collapsed your ceiling or accidentally killed every power source in the house you are lucky. It's time to call the electrician. 

Whether you are a certified electrician or a home DIYer, you need the right tools for the job. What does a wire crimper look like? And, what kind of saw do you use to get to that part of the wall you need to access without taking down the entire wall. When people think of electricians, they often think an electrical panel and a few wires. But, what really goes on behind the scenes? The modern electrician is also a carpenter, and often times a plumber. So, you need to have the tools at hand to be ready for any type of project. 

Do you have those tools? Do you even know what those tools look like? From a stud finder to a level, it's time to see if you can identify these tools from an image. We know you're a pro, so flip the switch on this quiz and see how well you do.
