Circular saws are one of the most widely used power tools today. With the right motor and right blade, hand held circular saws are capable of cutting through hardwood, metal, masonry, and even tile. Ask some of our helpful associates which model is right for the projects you’re planning.
As the name suggests, multi-tools can handily tackle multiple different jobs. From grinding and sanding to cutting and trimming, a quality multi-tool will allow any homeowner or DIYer to easily check off most of their handyman To-Do list.
Traditional drills have been the workhorse of most craftsmen and handymen since their invention. These hand held beauties allow anyone to put screws in their place with ease. The premise and designs haven’t changed much in the last decades, but improvements have been made to make them stronger, lighters, and easier to handle, as well as cutting that pesky cord out of the equation. Traditional but still important, a traditional drill fits right in with anyone’s tool collection.
Impact drivers are like the traditional drill’s more athletic friend. Impact drivers serve much the same function but have more kick to them. Impact drivers use a pneumatic hammer to assist in driving screws when the tool’s rotational torque alone won’t cut it. Impact drivers tend to me compact and lightweight than traditional drills, but they also run the risk of shearing screws clean off with the punch that they pack.
Both hammer drills and impact drivers are variations on the traditional drill. Impact drivers are nimble and compact while packing a bigger punch, but in hammer drills the bigger punch matches the larger size. Most hammer drills have a switch to change modes from traditional to hammer mode, allowing one to easily transition from driving screws into soft wood, and into something as tough as masonry and concrete. Hammer drills have the added firepower, but only uses it when you want.
There are a few different kinds of hand sanders, the most popular being palm sanders and orbital sanders. Both of these tools have their pros and cons. Orbital sanders are a little heavier duty than palm sanders, weigh a little more, but end up with a more even finish than palm sanders. Palm sanders are lightweight and easy to maneuver, however the look they give can be a bit less professional. The best way to find the sander that’s right for your projects is to come in and talk to any of our helpful associates.
