Hand Tools

Sometimes, the most straightforward tools are the ones you reach for most often. As a result, these tools can get worn down from days (even years) of heavy use that scraping can often demand. It’s always a great idea to peer around your garage and take stock of what hand tools you have and which are ready to be retired. Here are a few great options to replace the smaller tools in your shop. These are great stocking stuffers for any handy person this time of year.

Copper Scrapping Tools

We all know scrappers’ first true love is their trucks. Their second love is probably Copper. The only problem with that is that most times, you’ll have to sift through all the wire and tubing found scrapping and eventually start stripping a good chunk of the wire as well as cutting all the old tubing down to size

There are far too many great products to list here, but here are a few recommendations and more of our resources for finding the best tools for you!

Hand Sanitizer – Here’s a bit of a curveball, but one that makes sense. Scrapping can often be a dirty business, and frequently, you’re dealing with materials that can get messy and may or may not have been in contact with other people (and their germs!). Especially during flu season, keeping a few handy in your glovebox when you’re out and about or at the yard, dropping off a scrap load is always a good idea.

Torx Screwdriver Set – When dealing with e-scrap, one of the first frustrating questions you’ll ask yourself is, “Why do they use these tiny, oddball screws?” This screwdriver set is a bit more niche than your standard screwdriver, so if you or your scrapper gift buddy deals with a lot of electronic scrap, this would be a welcome addition to their arsenal.
