People need tools for many different things. Most include home improvement or for people who work in construction. Whatever the reason we are here to help you decide what you need.
Power tools are classified as either stationary or portable, where portable means handheld. They are used in industry, in construction, and around the house for cutting, shaping, drilling, sanding, painting, grinding, and polishing. All of these are conviently sized to fix inside your truck tool box.
Stationary power tools for metalworking are usually called machine tools. The term machine tool is not usually applied to stationary power tools for woodworking, although such usage is occasionally heard, and in some cases, such as drill presses and bench grinders, the exact same tool is used for both woodworking and metalworking.
Stationary power tools are prized not only for their speed, but for their accuracy. A table saw not only cuts faster than a hand saw, but the cuts are smoother, straighter and more square than even the most skilled man can do with a hand saw.
An electric motor is the universal choice to power stationary tools. Portable electric tools may be either corded or battery-powered. Right now the limitations of battery life, energy capacity, and cost keep the corded versions on the market.
Compressed air is the customary power source for nailers and paint sprayers. A few tools are powered by explosive cartridges. Gasoline-powered tools are made for outdoor use; typical examples include most chainsaws and string trimmers.
Common power tools include the drill, various types of saws, the router, the electric sander, and the lathe. The term power tool is also used in a more general sense, meaning a technique for greatly simplifying a complex or difficult task.
While power tools are extremely helpful, they also produce gratuitous amounts of noise and vibrations. Using power tools without hearing protection over a long period of time can put a person at risk for hearing loss.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has recommended that a person should not be exposed to noise at or above 85 dB, for the sake of hearing loss prevention.
Most power tools, including drills, circular saws, belt sanders, and chainsaws, operate at sound levels above the 85 dB limit. NIOSH strongly recommends wearing hearing protection while using these kinds of power tools.
