Garden Power Tools Suitable for Larger Projects

2016-04-14

It is well-known to us all that power tools play a big part in many home improvement projects, particularly in those projects involving woodworking. And while hand tools have their place in the workshop, Garden Power Tools save you time, make many jobs easier to do and can often provide more professional results. This article will introduce some important power tools you may need in your workshop, and how they can benefit you versus using hand tools.

Pneumatic nail gun: If you have just a few nails to hammer in, a regular hand-held hammer will do fine. But if you have a lot of nails, or are using thicker nails, it will take multiple blows and a lot of time to get everything hammered in. In these situations, a pneumatic nail gun makes nailing go much faster and more smoothly. However, you have to follow all of the safety precautions, after all, power tools are much dangerous than hand tools.

Power circular saw: When it comes to sawing, a handsaw is fine if you are just cutting a few 2x4s. But if you needed to cut a large panel of plywood, it would be pretty slow going. For this job, a power circular saw is a much better choice. Used in combination with a clamp-on straight edge, a circular saw makes cutting straight cuts on large pieces of wood a snap which about 100 times faster than with a hand saw. It's also easier on the hands.

Power miter saw: For making angled or mitered cuts, you use a hand miter saw. Like the handsaw, this tool works well with small projects. But for bigger projects, a power miter saw will do the same job a lot faster and with a lot less effort. All you need to do is to rotate the blade to whatever angle you need and make your cut.

Power jigsaw: For cutting curved or circular patterns in wood, a coping saw is the hand tool used. But all the attention to detail that needs to be paid when making those curves can take a lot of time. Generally, a few simple curves would take 30 minutes with a coping saw, but take just seconds when using a power jigsaw. Along with faster speed, a power jigsaw also provides you with greatly improved control.

Cordless drill: This is perhaps the king of the power tools. The benefits of a cordless drill are twofold. For one, being cordless gives the drill more workability, because you're not hampered by being attached to an outlet. For another, cordless drills provide double power as compared to screwdrivers. For many screws, such as drywall screws, you don't even need to drill a pilot hole.

In conclusion, hand tools are more suitable for small projects, while power tools are best option for larger jobs. You can choose the tools all depend on your projects and needs.
