Mister Worker™ is the point of reference for the community of maintenance professionals: electricians, plumbers, skilled workers and many other categories gather information on our blog pages and purchase our products - over 35,000 from the best international brands. On Mister Worker™ the first objective is to convey the culture of professional maintenance, which requires products that meet certain characteristics, high quality and not consumer. That's why we created the blog of Mister Worker™: a hub of knowledge and information related to the world of professional workers. Every week we publish new articles ranging from the world of electricians, with guides to digital multimeters and the choice of insulated screwdrivers, to the category of hydraulics, special tools (suitable for highly specialized sectors such as aerospace and oil & gas) and solutions for working at height, from stairs to scaffolding. In this article, we propose some of our best texts, which the Mister Worker™ community has particularly appreciated over time. If there are any topics you would like to explore in more detail, write us from our contact form and let us know: we are always very interested in the opinion of our users.
From electrician's products to tool storage containers
Among the categories of professional workers that are part of the Mister Worker™ community are undoubtedly electricians, who need equipment that meets specific characteristics. We have explored the theme with a full guide to tools for electricians, reviewing the basic tools that can never be missing in the toolbox (first of all isolated screwdrivers, wire strippers and testers). When it comes to tools for electricians, of course the first factor is to have isolated work equipment. So the first step is the insulating gloves: discover in our article which are the basic characteristics that they must comply with, in addition to the compliance with the safety standard IEC 60903. The 10 best tools for electricians include, in addition to insulating gloves, safety shoes with antistatic soles, an insulating mat, a set of insulated screwdrivers (Mister Worker™ includes a wide range of these tools), wire strippers, special scissors for electricians, as well as insulating tape, toolbox and digital multimeter. We have dedicated an entire article to the latter: the guide to choosing and using the digital multimeter.
Speaking of toolboxes: as you can imagine, toolboxes are a valuable and essential element in the organisation of any maintenance worker. Whether it's a tool box for storing your tools and power tools, such as a screwdriver drill, or a tool holder for nails and screws, on Mister Worker™ we've explored all these themes to help you choose the best solution. You will therefore find the guide on how to choose a tool box, especially focused on trolleys (drag cases), today one of the solutions preferred by our users for its ease and versatility of use. In fact, there are toolboxes with wheels that can be transformed into trolleys to facilitate the mobility of the worker. In addition to movement, the main features include capacity (i.e. the storage capacity of the container, whether it is a tool tray or a toolbox), internal organisation (especially in the case of toolboxes, a subdivision into compartments that allows easy access to tools) and above all strength and sturdiness. In addition, we also highlight the parts-holder solutions: discover how to choose the best parts-holder in our dedicated article.
From dynamometry to lasers: a world of knowledge
Mister Worker™ has an extensive catalogue of torque control tools from the best brands, including Stahlwille (pure quality Made in Germany) and Facom. Dynamometry is the area in which controlled (i.e. measurable) tightening operations are carried out at the right torque value: it allows the same parameters to be worked on screws and bolts, and it is an increasingly popular solution because it allows greater precision and controllability. Learn more about torque control and how to use a torque wrench. Today we distinguish between mechanical (or "snap") and electronic (digital) torque wrenches. The former have a lower risk of breakage in the event of an accidental fall, which could instead damage the electrical components of the latter. On the other hand, mechanical torque wrenches do not allow the data of each tightening to be stored. They are also called "snap" because, once the fixed torque value is reached, the key makes a snap sound (a sort of 'click' that warns of the attainment). The electronic keys, also known as digital keys, allow the data of each tightening to be stored and, in the case of more advanced models, to be uploaded to a computer via USB. Discover also our guide to the EN ISO 6789:2017 standard.
Of course, the topics explored do not end here: there is much more to discover on the blog, updated weekly with the latest news and with guides to tools and professionals in each industry. Among the most popular articles, for example, is the guide to laser levels, used mainly in the construction industry and therefore on construction sites. Among the laser tools most purchased on Mister Worker™ are those from Stanley, so we have prepared a valid guide for the purchase of Stanley laser tools.
