A veritable power tool power house, the Craftsman brand was coined by the Sears company in 1927. At first, the company primarily manufactured common hand tools like hammers and screwdrivers; but soon jumped on the power tool bandwagon and is now one of the top-selling producers of all power tools, both stationary and portable.
Power tools and pneumatic tools are usually bought together because they help in efficiency. This is why you need to have them both and be able to make them work together. Choosing the right choice of tools is not easy and someone needs expert advice. The dealers in good ships will be able to give all the information that you need. One of these dealers is Caple industries.
Remember that it does pay to get the extra quality if you can afford it right from the start. Your tools will perform better and will last much longer too. It is well worth it in the end and you will be happier with the way the performance power tools handle and give you the results that you desire.
Almost any tool is available now as a cordless or battery operated model; with the improvements in batteries that have been made over the past decade, there is really no need now to use tools with cords that just get in the way and can be dangerous hazards. NiCads and lithiums are the most popular with lithium taking the lead and being the primary battery being manufactured fo most tools now. The main complaint with lithiums is that when they run out of power the just stop with no warning. Some of the manufacturers like DeWalt have started to address this issue by adding battery fuel gauge indicators to give the operator an idea of how the battery is powering down; not all batteries have this feature yet. Some of the companies have made huge strides in how the batteries charge. For example, Makita has a built-in shock absorbing feature and a built-in memory chip in the battery to communicate with the Optimum Charger to allow for a more efficient charge during the charging process to optimize the battery's life by actively controlling the current, voltage, and temperature; the charger has a built-in fan to cool the battery to increase the battery's life. One point to note when using these newer lithium batteries is if they become extremely hot, allow them to cool back down, and watch out that they do not get so hot that they explode.
Many folks are now able to build a personal small business around their ability to utilize these tools effectively. Therefore, we can note an industry creation of these small businesses. As tools become easier to use and skill sets are better defined, this relatively young industry will only expand and possibly morph into something we cannot yet see, but will eventually depend on individually as separate and independent persons with varying needs.
