One of the most important precautions that should be taken is to make sure that the exposed moving parts of the power tool is covered and safeguarded, including belts, gears, shafts, pulley, sprockets, spindles, drums, flywheels, and chains. The greatest hazard of power tools, however, is electric shock, so make sure the tool is properly grounded before it is powered on. Also, it is dangerous to use power tools in damp or wet locations, as moisture helps electricity flow more easily through the body. This is one of the reasons rubber gloves and footwear are recommended when working outdoors when it is wet or damp.
With the market being saturated with numerous brands of power tools, it can be a challenging choice to choose the right ones. Here are some standard areas of comparison that you need to keep in mind. They will also help you get the best deals on the tools you do decide to purchase.
The last way is to start off with a smaller bundled set. Here this is in relation to power tools that are battery-powered. This first set will usually come with one or preferably two batteries; this way you can buy another if you see that the single battery doesn't last long enough for your projects, so you can have one battery charging while you are using the other one. Also as your needs for more specific tools grow, you can add more tools by buying what are called 'bare tools'. This is when you purchase a tool that does not come with a battery, thereby saving you quite a bit in the cost of that power tool. This is something to be careful of when you compare ads; many times the cost is amazingly cheap considering what you would expect and most of the time that is due to the battery not being included. This is not a bad thing. In fact, this is an excellent thing. This way you can purchase tools that you may not have expected to anticipate that you needed at a more reasonable cost for your power tool box.
Founded in 1915 in Japan, the Makita Corporation has also staked its reputation on cordless, battery-powered power tools - most notably, the hand-held drill, which Makita introduced in 1978. Nine years later, the company had a full arsenal of cordless, professional-grade power tools for contractors. Today, Makita manufactures over 350 different power tools, both portable and stationary, and the pronounced teal color emblazoned on all of their tools is often mimicked by others trying to capitalize on Makita's reliable name.
