Acquiring tools is the lifelong process. You probably started as the teenager with some screwdrivers, a wrench set and a hammer—but the welder is one of the last things you add to the collection, and if you ever even own one at all. They require workshop space, money, the specialized skills to properly weld.
It’s understandable if you haven’t gotten to that point yet in your building and tinkering. Luckily for all the non-welder-owning makers, YouTube celebrity mechanic Colin Furze recently released the video below that show you how to make an awesome, fast go-cart with nothing but the simple tool collection.
Now just because you don’t need the full welder, you’ll still need some power tools to cut and shape metal—namely the drill and an angle grinder.
You’ll also need the particularly large 20 mm metal drill bit as well as the 25 mm bi-metal hole saw for creating the holes in the frame for the axles, but these bits can be purchased form the hardware store for relatively cheap.
Everything else you need is par for the course—wrenches, allen keys, hammer, file, screw drivers—but you do want to get he set square and some clamps to make your life easier, and particularly if this is your first time building something like a go-cart.
