Some tools come as brushless models now. This increases the efficiency of the motor and cuts down on the maintenance by not having to replace the brushes as they wear down. Keep an eye out for the tools with special clutches that release when the tool binds; this will save replacing your clutch and motor, thereby extending the tool's life.
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.
A good piece of equipment to protect you from flying debris is a particle mask. This is particularly good to stop you inhaling the dust that comes from cutting wood. The particle mask is also important as it prevents dust from reaching your nose or going into your mouth and the mask should filter any debris you may inhale.
The choice of what power tools to get is different for each one of us because we each have individual needs depending on what jobs or products we work on. Take the time beforehand to figure out what you really need instead of impulse buying. Maybe even buying a group of power tools together like a combo deal or bundled package could help you out over the long term. Remember quality performance power tools are an investment.
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.
