Technology has increased human work speed as well as accuracy. In almost every field innovative ideas and ways are being introduced and the same happened in the art of Woodworking. Power tools are among the big changes that have taken place.
These tools are unbelievably fast and are the masters of their task but like normal tools, which can be used by anybody, they need specific skills and knowledge for complete utilization.
The power tools can also be a bane if used by amateur workers. The sharp blades and high speed can together be very destructive if not operated in the right way.
There is a wide range of power tools available to the buyer, some are very mechanic and some are semi. The features provided by them directly affect their price too. So to say it in simple words you can find a 100$ machine and even a 2000$ one too.
If you are new to these tools you can join a school, nowadays-big companies organize exhibitions and free trials for local woodworkers. These machines come with a manual in which proper directions are given from how to use to when not-to. These manuals are so good that even a wood worker with minimum skills can learn to operate these power tools easily.
Below is a list of some very common power tools, which are used by almost all woodworkers. While, it’s not a necessity and thus isn’t mentioned here, I’d recommend you to get a good wood planer if you can afford one.
Even if you are not a woodworker this Power Drill should be in your kit. This drill is very handy and can even be used by household members.
The drill is available in both cordless and corded model. They are available in huge range with specific features like hammer drill, 3/8-inch or 1/2-inch, straight drill, keyed or keyless chuck.
These very common to be found in a woodworking shop as they are the most important part of woodworking. If you are a beginner then you must take all the time in learning the features and power different table saws hold.
The tool is going to be the head of all your tools, that’s why it is important for you to choose the best table saw.
Router holds the second position just after your table saw. It comes usually in two models stationary and plunge. For beginners I would recommend stationary as it can be used for many projects. You can read wood router reviews here.
If you are planning to buy a router, make sure that it is at least 2 HP and has a speed variation feature. Read more about routers and choose wisely from the wide range available.
