You may also consider manufacturer. Some craftsmen are loyal to one brand or another and some brands are certainly better than others (this difference usually reflects in pricing). Favoring one manufacture(s) over another can more precisely define and simplify your search. Additionally, just as all craftsmen have a specialty, so do manufacturers. Certain brands build the very best of a certain tool - for example, Milwaukee in known for producing some of the absolute best reciprocating saws, and Bosch for the best jigsaws. The master behind each type of power tool can usually be found with just a bit of research.
A.F. Siebert founded the Milwaukee Electric Tool Company one year later in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Known for manufacturing heavy-duty power tools, Milwaukee is best know for the 'Sawzall,' one of the most widely-used reciprocating saws in the world. Like their power tool manufacturing competition, Milwaukee currently produces portable and stationary power tools like circular saws, drills, band saws, grinders and sanders - over 500 different models in all. Unlike their competition, many of Milwaukee's power tools are released in both 120 and 230 volt models, drawing the line between household and commercial/industrial power.
Tool warranties are often an underrated asset. Having a good warranty with your tool usually means you're buying from a company that entirely trusts their product will satisfy you - this is a good feeling to carry with you on the job. Most industrial manufacturers include a one year warranty on corded power tools, batteries and chargers, and a three year warranty on cordless tools. Of course, this is only standard - some manufactures offer less and some much more. Hitachi includes a ten year warranty on most of their cordless lithium-ion line.
Best known for the Skilsaw they invented in 1924, the Skil power tool company evolved out of the Michel Electric Handsaw Company when they entered the power tool market. Fueled by the ingenious circular saw invention, the company elevated itself to the upper echelon of the small power tool industry with jig saws, grinders, sanders, and a whole slew of handheld, cordless power tools. In 1996, the Bosch company purchased Skil but still keeps its power tools on shelves worldwide as one of the most popular power tool lines on Earth.
As stated earlier, I was gonna tell you how power tools enhanced the quality and effectiveness of doing this project. First, let me say that planning is key. I first took appropriate measurements to know how much material I needed to effectively do this project. I then took stock of what tools I presently had that would be sufficient to accomplish the various tasks that this project might entail.
