Since art restorers restore artworks such as paintings, ceramics, sculptures and textiles their tools would match with those of the original creator of the work. So in restoring a painting, the restorer would have a selection of brushes, paints and solvents to clean and restore the work.
Art conservators work with similar tools as the art restorer but they may also rely on state-of-the-art scientific tools to conduct laboratory analysis such as microscopes, x-ray machines, digital scanners, etc.
Art conservators typically work within an institution such as a museum, and the tools are provided. Art restorers may work independently so they would have their studios set up with the necessary tools to repair damaged artworks.
