A tool can be any item that is used to achieve a goal. Equipment usually denotes a set of tools that are used to
achieve a specific objective. A tool can be non-mechanical as well. However, when one says equipment,
there is a certain mechanical aspect to it that cannot be ignored.
Categories of hand tools include wrenches, pliers, cutters, files, striking tools, struck or hammered tools,
screwdrivers, vises, clamps, snips, saws, drills and knives. Outdoor tools such as garden forks, pruning shears,
and rakes are additional forms of hand tools. Portable power tools are not hand tools.
