There’s always repair to be made somewhere, whether it’s indoors or outdoors, winter or summer; so it’s essential that you have the right tools for the job. The garage should always have a tool for every possible scenario that you may need to use it for because you know there’s nothing more annoying than knowing how to repair something but not having the right tools for the job.
Power tools were invented to stop you from wasting unnecessary time and effort trying to do these jobs with the wrong tools. To avoid these disastrous and depressing situations then there are five power tools that your garage should never be lacking.
- A cordless drill allows screwing and unscrewing nuts and bolts to become an effortless, easy task. This means that the time you spend repairing the latest broken appliance or building your son a racing car will be significantly reduced thanks to your cordless drill.
Whenever you’re looking to buy a new cordless drill make sure it has a high voltage battery. The higher the voltage means the more torque your drill will have when it comes to unscrewing the rusty veteran screws; as well as this, having a powerful drill makes all repairs much easier.
- Power miter saws are used for angle cutting. You can set the degree of the angle to whatever you need and the saw will cut it exactly. This saves wasting materials as it’s guaranteed to take a few attempts to get it right manually.
This type of saw also comes with safety covers making it a safer power tool than most others. Carpenters say that they could not work without their miter saws because it is such a stable and accurate tool.
- Nail guns have become very popular in a variety of professional fields including building as it reduced the time that it takes to complete a job. This will probably be the tool that you use most regularly which is ironic considering it’s the smallest and probably the cheapest.
- Air compressors are a great way to convert motor energy into kinetic energy easily. Once this energy has been converted it can then be used to power other air tools that you may also have.
- A jigsaw is the final power tool on the list; and is essential for cutting designs into a variety of materials including metal and wood. Jigsaws are great for cutting edges and can even cut angles of up to 45 degrees. This is one of the most versatile of the essential power tools and one that you’ll be turning to for help with almost every job.
