Hand Tool Sets FAQs

Yes, a mud pan is essential for holding joint compound while applying it with a taping knife. It allows for easy access to the mud and keeps the work area tidy.

A screwdriver is useful for installing or tightening screws in drywall, especially when working around electrical boxes or other fixtures. A Phillips and a flathead screwdriver are the most commonly used types.

It is possible to use some existing hand tools, but having a dedicated set for drywall finishing ensures better performance and efficiency. Drywall-specific tools are designed for optimal results.
