Unplug the tool before changing bits, accessories or attachments. Remember to check what is behind something for possible electrical wiring or pipes in your path. If you see wires, then you should disconnect them and the power source. Avoid water pipes and always hold the tool by the insulated grasping surfaces.
One way is to keep an eye out for sales at hardware, big box, or specialty stores. Sometimes the store brands will give you sufficient quality for what you need. Most times you may have to wait a while until these stores put the items that you are looking for on sale. If you do a little research, you may see a trend where certain tools go on sale at specific times during the year. Some of these may be associated with certain holidays like Father's Day, Memorial Day weekend (in the U.S. this is because many folks start their outdoor projects then) and the Chanukah-Christmas season. Just keep checking out fliers and ads for your special tools in the mail & newspapers and on the Internet.
Many folks are now able to build a personal small business around their ability to utilize these tools effectively. Therefore, we can note an industry creation of these small businesses. As tools become easier to use and skill sets are better defined, this relatively young industry will only expand and possibly morph into something we cannot yet see, but will eventually depend on individually as separate and independent persons with varying needs.
There are other simple ways to keep safe using power tools. Wearing long sleeved shirts can protect arms and close tied shoes that could protect against any falling heavy objects. You should have a phone handy should you have an accident and need to go to hospital. Another essential tip is to make sure that you actually spend time learning how to use the equipment. It will not hurt to take time out and read the instructions on how to use each piece of equipment. For general safety precautions make sure tools are put away safely and nothing is left sticking out or loose on the floor.
Today common motorized tools are, cutters like, circular saws, reciprocating saws and routers, drills, sanders, grinders, and lathe’s etc.
