J. Tools and equipment
The choice of tools and equipment will depend on the construction material and its use. Many basic tools can be used to perform a number of different functions. However, a job is more easily and quickly done with the tool designed for that job. The following are the tools and equipment recommended for wells construction: hammer, nails, wood, saw, hacksaw, chisel, mason's trowel, level, shovel, mixing hoe, pick, ruler, plumb-bob, buckets, heavy rope, pulley, square, pliers, crow-bar, wrenches, pipe wrenches, screwdriver, file, mason's hammer, tie wire, sheet metal, pipe cutter, tripod, and pipe threader. For specifics, see the chapters on sinking methods in the sections on Dug Wells (Chapters 7-8) and Drilled Wells (Chapters 12-14).
