These days, more people have been sinking time into DIY projects than ever before. This is one positive effect of quarantines. There is no substitute for the pride and satisfaction you feel after having built or fixed something on your own. But let’s suppose you don’t have anything more than a tiny tool kit you bought at IKEA. If you want to get into DIYs, you’re going to need a few power tools. Here are some essential power tools.
A regular old hand saw may do the trick for cutting down a Christmas tree. But, in the world of DIYs, you’re going to want something a little more heavy-duty.
A track saw is one of the best power tools for making straight cuts across pieces of wood of various lengths. If you’ve never used one before, they might look a little intense. But don’t worry—they’re surprisingly easy to use and wildly efficient.
If you’ve never done any woodworking before, you might not be aware of just how rough edges are after you’ve cut them. Not only do rough edges look unprofessional, but they could also give you splinters.
That’s where orbital sanders come in. These tools are so named because the sander moves in tiny circles or ‘orbits’ to do its thing. Their uses aren’t limited to wood; you can also use them on plastic and even metal.
Maybe you just want to refinish something and give it some new life. In this situation, an orbital sander is your best friend because it can remove paint and varnish from surfaces.
Even if you’ve only assembled furniture in the past, you probably know what a pain fastening screws can be. When you’re putting a dresser or entertainment center, you might spend half the time figuring out what the instructions are saying, and the other half tightening screws.
Power drills don’t just make fastening screws a breeze. They open up a whole new world of possibilities, as they allow you to drill holes for new screws to go into.
No home should be without a power drill—even if you aren’t too interested in DIYs. They are truly among the most essential power tools.
Where can I get the tools I need?
When it comes to power tools, it can be tough deciding which ones to purchase. Internet research can only go so far, and the major hardware stores have minimal curation.
