One can ensure that their power tools bring better results by working in well organized spaces. This will reduce the amount of clatter and help in better movement. Some people have even taken to investing in mobile dust extractors for their work stations. This helps the machines to move in a more effective way. Thus, more time is used constructively in production, which is the aim of every owner.
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.
The project in question is the completion of a tiling job to my covered terrace. The previous owners of this home seemed to be avid tillers. There was tile in virtually every room. The terrace that I was tiling was only about half way done, which made it look totally unfinished. It seems that these folks probably had tile left over after a job and used it when and where they could. In this case it appears that they had enough to start the job, but not finish it. So to finish it correctly…I initially tried to find a matching tile, but was unable to. No matter where I went, I couldn’t find the right color, size or texture. It’s possible that these were specially ordered.
With the most recent improvements in plastics, many of these performance power tools now have softer hand holds and lighter weight as well as better ergonomics to allow the user to work more comfortably for longer periods of time which means less time off a job to rest, and in turn, time and money saved overall.
You should keep your eyes safe by wearing protective eye gear. Goggles are important to prevent any loose dust or debris damaging your eyes. This debris usually comes at you fast and so sawdust from wood can be flung directly into your eye and in some cases can be permanently lodged there. That is why goggles are an important piece of safety equipment you should wear when working with these types of tools.
