DIY PETE FAVORITE TOOLS

On this page are links to many of the tools, equipment, and supplies I use out in the shop. Some of the links are affiliate links, meaning I get a small commission for recommending the tools to you. If you do end up purchasing through the link I’d really appreciate it.

*Please note that I am a Ryobi Sponsored blogger and have been exclusively using Ryobi and Ridgid tools over the last 2 years. There are a lot of great tool companies out there, so please do your research to find the best fit for you. Ryobi tools are affordable, durable, and perfect for the average DIY'er. If you are more of a contractor or someone building on a daily basis, I'd recommend going with Ridgid as it is a bit more durable.

Stencil Making Vinyl Plotter - I've used this to make all sorts of stencils, signs, and decals over the years. I've owned a Graphtec since 2011 and it's bomb proof. I'd highly recommend this for any serious DIY'er. You can make all sorts of signs, vehicle graphics, and promo items with this. So if you are starting a new business and are going to spend money on signs, why not invest in your own plotter? I ordered the vinyl plotter on Amazon, and I get supplies from USCUTTER.com.
