Whether you are a professional contractor or a DIY enthusiast, there are some staple power tools you should always have in your toolbox or workshop. It is best to have some quality staple tools that serve multiple purposes for various projects. Beginners may be overwhelmed with the sheer amount of power tools on the market today. If you are just getting into woodworking, here are some essential power tools for beginners.
A power drill is used to drill holes in your walls, screw things in, and it’ll be the first thing you reach for when you’re building your first piece of furniture and need to attach some wood together. A drill is an essential power tool for anyone who wants to work on DIY projects in the home. When looking for a power drill to buy, consider if you need a corded or cordless drill and what kind of voltage is best for you.
A circular saw is a round or circular blade full of sharp teeth that tear through the wood. All circular saws are electric, although they come in various power ratings. Most are corded tools running on household power, but there have been significant advances in battery-powered circular saws. They are handy because they can make multiple different types of cuts in wood. You can cut both wood and plastic with a circular saw.
A nail gun basically does the job of a hammer in your toolbox. However, rather than having to hammer each nail in individually, a nail gun allows you to insert nails with just the pull of a trigger. Nail guns are also great for nailing together lighter materials, like doing a craft project, nailing a piece of wood to the back of a dresser, and other lightweight projects.
Sanding wood by handing can be time-consuming and very tedious. Your sander will quickly become your best friend in the workshop. Orbital and belt sanders will use electric power to sand much more quickly and thoroughly. Orbital sanders differ from inline tools like belt sanders. They use sandpaper pads revolving in a circular pattern.
