Be Prepared

We all have those tools we rely on, that prepare us for whatever the day throws at us. At Axminster, we want to celebrate those tools and have created this space to show them off. So, whether it’s your 16oz vinyl handled Estwing claw hammer, your ½” Lie-Nielsen cabinetmaker's chisel or every tool in your bag. We want you to share with us your ‘go to’ tools that you rely on everyday.
