Even though the concept of the power tool has been around for a long time, it wasn't until the late 1800's when the first modern-era power tools became possible. The advent of electric motors made highly-efficient stationary and portable power tool technology a reality, and high-speed assembly lines made power tools both affordable and profitable.
Today we have the addition of a motor to many devices. Cutting for instance is made much simpler by tools like saws that have motors built in. You can still buy a hand model, but why.
Power tools can make a difficult task very easy and accurate. Make sure you use the tools correctly and that they are in good condition to avoid any injuries. If you do not understand the tools well, always consult a contractor to do your project.
Power tools make it possible to do many tasks quickly and efficiently. As the name suggests, they use power or electricity to function and thus are not manual. It reduces the time taken for a task which is most of the times subject to manual intervention and errors. Power Tools are designed to work for you and make your job easier. When used properly, they help minimize errors and maximize safety. Some of the common Power tools used are Circular Saw, Grinding Wheel, Polisher, Circular Saw Blade, Hammer Drill and many more.
Although my terrace is covered, it is still outside, which means it’s more susceptible to the external elements. Firstly, I chose to do this project during the coldest and wettest time of the year. Needless to say I was a slave to weather conditions. It could be wonderful weather the first half of the day and terrible the next half or visa versa. I always had to be ready to act immediately depending on the weather condition. If you are an avid do it yourselfer, I you must do a project/job during these unfavorable conditions, try to find something to do inside or away from external elements. Based on my negative experiences, it’s not worth the hassle.
