Top Power Tools Every DIY Enthusiast Should Know
These are your best friends for your DIY projects
Your work will never be possible without some tools that come handy and useful. Though it depends on what project you are working on, you use various tools to achieve your desired DIY outcome. We give you a list of what you must have in order to work efficiently and easier.
1. Cordless Drill
To create holes or to put things together, a cordless drill can do both. You can attach a drill bit to it to bore holes or you can use screws to put things like cedars together in a project. It's also convenient being cordless and you will only need batteries for them.
2. Circular Saw
This power saw will literally make your life – and projects – easier. It's great for quick cuts and should be a part of your workspace.
3. Miter Saw
If you want to make angled cuts and not sweat about it, then a miter saw does the job best among other power tools. A miter saw can cut like other saws but what sets it apart is how you can adjust it to cater to angle cuts depending on your project plan.
You need this if you want to achieve curved and unique cuts flawlessly. This is the distinctive feature of a jigsaw, to cut curves and custom shapes that you want because other saws can only cut straight lines.
5. Nail Gun
You can save time and effort hammering nails down with a nail gun. Although there are some projects where it's better to secure with a nail and hammer, a nail gun can still be very convenient and helpful with your DIY, especially when it involves basic nailing.
Because who would want a rough surface or splinters on a project? Smoothing the surface and the edges and getting splinter – free is one basic step in every project, and a sander can most definitely deliver its task.
7. Kreg Jig
Easily drill pocket holes with Kreg Jig, and its built – in toggle clamp secures the wood or any material in need of holes. You need this to easily draw holes, especially on corners.
8. Staple Gun
There are just days – and crafts where you don't need any drilling and tedious working. On these times do the staple gun become handy. It will help you easily seal the deal.
Another tool to help for your patterns, a router is your go – to tool for some edge specifications and cutting, creating deep cuts and following patterns.
