25 Essential Electrician Tools to Amp Up Your Tool Belt
We have a list for apprentice electrician tools, and a list for journeyman to master electrician tools. But, as you grow in experience and skill, and your work becomes more diverse, your tool needs will grow as well. The required tools of an apprentice electrician are available in a wide range of prices.
I have two competing thoughts on this. On the one hand, I believe you get what you pay for. Buy a cheesy tool-get cheesy results. In other words, electricians lose tools. Just a fact of life — hand tools tend to get lost. Your tools need a home.
We reviewed the to on the market today to give you a step up in your decision making. What exactly does an electrician apprentice need when it comes to tools?
Well, grab a cup of coffee and sit down. This is going to get interesting. Hand tools, power tools, and meters are all on the list of tools that an electrician apprentice needs to have. The tools of an electrician apprentice don;t fall into a neat list. There may be variance from one employer to the next as to what you need. Still, this list is a good start for an apprentice. No matter where you are in your journey as an electrician, keep reading for helpful tips about electricians and their tools.
These adjustable pliers really come in handy. Now I have all the leverage I need to straighten it out. The flat jaws are handy for grabbing things that need to be grabbed. One example is steel fish tape — but for the most part this is a cutting tool.
So, why bother? The advantage here is the ability to reach into tight places like outlet boxes or crowded panels. This long-nose pliers is mostly for grabbing and pinching. As you get proficient, it becomes like an extension of your hand. This thing is great for twisting wire around terminals, pinching, grabbing, yanking — you name it. It quickly and neatly cleans the insulation from copper wire — stranded or solid. You can deal with bigger cable using a razor knife.
This item has a permanent place in my tool pouch. Crimping is a daily reality, be it brass grounding sleeves or insulated terminal connectors. I recommend this open jaw style over the crimpers which are in the nadle. This has better leverage and it uses a more natural and ergonomic action. This tool has but one purpose: exposing the wires in armored cable. The Roto-Split makes a quick and clean job of stripping that outer sheath off when terminating the cable.
Some electricians prefer using their diagonal cutter for this task — and that works fine in a pinch. But, if I need to strip a lot of cable, I find that this tool is much faster and makes a cleaner cut. The volt meter is to an electrician what a stethoscope is to a doctor. When you learn to use it, you can measure voltage, current, frequency, and continuity.
The absolute best training in the electrical contracting field is troubleshooting. The T5 electrical tester lets you check voltage, continuity and current with one compact tool.
All you have to do is select volts, ohms, or current, and the tester does the rest. I love the clamp feature which makes it even faster to check current. Hold it next to an energized wire and it will glow red or emit an audible tone — or both.
This is not meant to replace a volt meter. It places a tone on the wire which allows me to detect it on the other end. Plug it in and the lights or lack thereof , will tell you if the plug is working. Additionally, if there is a problem, this will indicate what the trouble is: loss of ground, loss of neutral, etc. A nice feature is the little black button, which is a GFCI tester. When plugged in, pressing that button will trip a properly functioning GFCI device. Also known as a de-burring tool, this little guy is part of the process in cutting conduit.
Insert into the freshly cut end and twist to clean off the sharp edges left behind. Once nice feature here is that the insulated shaft keeps you from making sparks and arcs when working in an energized panel.
You will want a straight blade and a phillips. But, I do recommend the following:. Why do I need 7 different screw drivers? Seriously, more of my hand tools are now in peoples attics than my truck.
I also like the insulated grip which allows me to work on energized equipment when necessary. The indicator on the tip allows me to see the type while still in my tool pouch.
The square drive bit is for a very specific screw head — clearly. The screw head can be found on many electrical panels and devices. I keep it in reach right next to my phillips screwdriver. Stubby screwdrivers seem a bit silly — until you need one! For making quick, small cuts in drywall.
I often use this when installing electrical boxes in a finished wall or recessed lights in ceilings. A sharp utility knife is an absolute must. I prefer this snap off style because they get dull pretty fast. Making sure things look good is very important. Keep those conduits straight, and light fixtures plumb with this hand held level which fits nicely in your tool pouch.
I use my hammer every day. There are plenty of things to secure and plenty more to tear apart. It also makes a nice measuring stick when putting up outlet boxes around a house. Just stand the hammer up on the floor and set the box on top of it. Hold and nail in place. Locating light fixtures, mounting boxes, running conduit, are just a few things that require a decent tape measure.
First, get one with a heavy duty blade. You want to be able to extend it out as far as possible without it collapsing. Another feature I like is a magnetic tip. This allows me to butt the end up to something metallic and have it hang on. At one time having a cordless drill on your truck was a luxury. Today I would call it an absolute must.
Most common use is installing or removing devices such as outlets and switches. You might be surprised how often you need to drill a hole.
Have a decent set of twist bits on hand. The first time I used one of these bad boys I thought; where have you been all my life?
If you , like me, have every schlepped through an attic or crawl space with tools, material and a mini flashlight in your mouth then you know how awesome it is to have a hands free source of light. Get one of these! The inside of this tray is magnetic.
I can fill it up with screws and have no fear of them spilling out. The base is also magnetic so I can park the whole thing in a convenient spot like on a metal stud, I-beam, or panel cover.
Knee pads? Protect your eyes? Recently I shorted out a screwdriver in a panel. The resultant shards of molten steel that would be the tip of my screwdriver wound up on my forehead faster than I could react.
That definitely left a mark. Imagine what that would have done to my eyes. Get yourself a pair of goggles and use them! Return to Tools List. A good pair of cut resistant gloves will protect you from most of those nasty nicks and slashes you get from razor knifes, jagged sheet metal edges, broken lamps, etc.
