Do you know the difference between a claw hammer and a hammer drill or a hole saw and a jigsaw? Can you tell the difference between a plumb bob, chalk line and laser level from a single image? Take our quiz to see if you can recognize all the tools and equipment used in the construction industry!
Construction appears simple from the outside - grab a hammer, some nails and a couple of sheets of plywood and get to work, right? Look a little closer, and you'll learn that putting together even a simple structure or renovation is an incredibly complex process, one that unites a huge group of specialists.
The building process starts with architects and engineers, who prepare plans and specifications for contractors to work from. After that, you need crews to handle site work and excavation, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and a whole host of other pros, each contributing just a small piece of the puzzle.
Of course, each of these crews of workers will also bring their tools to the job, and just one piece of missing equipment can derail an entire day of the project schedule.
