The brief history just serves to illustrate the development of the drill and close on the heels of the drill were many other corded and cordless power tools. Mains powered devices operate on a variety of voltages 120v in the US and in Europe we operate on two voltages. We have 220-240v powered tools normally used in the home and for the less demanding applications whereas in the construction arena health and safety demands 110v units powered by 220-240v to 110v transformers. Battery powered tools use different battery types and operate at different voltages. The power screwdriver is the least demanding of the electrically operated tools in the power toolbox and may be supplied with as little as 3.6v batteries. The capability of the batteries has increased year by year as we have seen battery technology move gently from 9.6v to 36v such that we now have tools supplied with batteries rated at 12v, 14.4v, 18v, 24v and 36v. Needless to say the 36v tools are much more expensive than the 12v tools. The development in battery technology has been considerably more than just building larger battery packs. The latest batteries are Lithium-ion or Li-Ion batteries which enable more battery power to be delivered and batteries can be quickly recharged.
Try to purchase a high quality power tool. Power tools are available cordless as well as corded. You can choose as per your requirements. Generally cordless tools will satisfy the needs of any user. You should compare the features of same tool with other competitors. You should follow user manual at the time of using power tools.
For the peak performance of the machine, the following tips can be used as a guide. The tool should always be warmed up a little before being used. For new tools, a break over period of about 5 hours is often required before the tool can attain maximum performance. The attachments used should always be new and well sharpened. The tool should also be maintained at regular intervals to ensure good working and maximum efficiency. The accessories used on the tool should only be the ones recommended for that specific model.
If you can think back to using an old hand saw or manual tool, you can remember how hard it was cutting materials. Not only was it difficult to cut the material, but cutting an item in a straight line was virtually impossible.
The choice of what power tools to get is different for each one of us because we each have individual needs depending on what jobs or products we work on. Take the time beforehand to figure out what you really need instead of impulse buying. Maybe even buying a group of power tools together like a combo deal or bundled package could help you out over the long term. Remember quality performance power tools are an investment.
