Handheld power tools can make work so much easier in industries. They are convenient since one can walk around holding them and be able to do their work uninterrupted. This is why one should also be careful as this can also pose a huge danger to the user. However, these tools are not merely an insular solution to the user as it is also a way to increase effectiveness in more ways than one.
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.
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.
Power tools allow humans to perform difficult task easier and accurately. If used correctly, you can professionally complete any project very efficiently and effectively. Many individuals choose to invest in a set of power tools to make small improvements on their house. You may want to remodel your home to make changes to increase the value of your house or fix something that was broken.
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.
