Power tool users frequently assume that they know everything there is to know about power tool safety. However, power tools can be extremely dangerous if used improperly. The Consumer Product Safety Commission conducted a survey in 2003 that blamed workshop and indoor power tools for an average of 400,000 emergency room visits a year. This total does not even include injury from tools such as backhoes, mowers and weed trimmers. Statistics such as these show the grim side of power equipment usage and make the need for power equipment safety even more evident.

The aims of any craft trade it to blossom and have many loyal customers. This is because they will always come back if they are sure your work is outstanding.

Of course, you may use industrial grade tools to tighten your cupboards and door jambs but this isn't always realistic - nor is it ever a good idea to use sub-par power equipment on a professional project. You want to make sure you invest in the best power tools for the applications they'll be used for - for example, you wouldn't use a steak knife to spread butter on bread just as you wouldn't use a butter knife to tear into a top sirloin. - If you go to your circular saw, power drill, or another power tool. only a few times each year, it's certainly not necessary to buy the most powerful tools on the market, however, if you use your tools often and heavily, you'll definitely want to throw down a few more dollars for a higher-quality tool.
