From small projects such as building picture frames or restoring old furniture to more ambitious projects such as home improvement or building a custom wardrobe can be easy and fun on your budget. However, first of all you should have a reasonably well stocked tool kit. The following are a few essentials which will make the job more interesting and simple.
An excellent quality drill should be your first purchase. There are various corded as well as cordless power drills available; however for the beginner, corded drill in a medium range is advisable. Usually corded drills are tougher, last longer and are more durable. Cordless drills are convenient, thus if you are selecting one, make sure it has additional battery packs so that you can use one when the other is being recharged. Tough hammer drill that has an extra hammering action is also a great option.
Even though a power screwdriver is not absolutely necessary, it saves you a lot of effort and time. This is why its purchase is justified readily. The screws are designed for power screwdrivers and driving in some screws by hand can diminish your newfound interest for DIY jobs.
This is another tool which can save you a lot of elbow grease. An excellent random orbital sander eliminates a lot of material as well as cleans up surfaces without any effort. It works really fast and produces swirl-free motion. Select a model that has built-in dust control which extracts the dust produced from sanding efficiently.
A basic requirement is a sharp cutting tool. For a starter, a good jigsaw that easily cuts through wood is advisable. Corded jigsaws are much easier to work with and they have different speed settings that you can use to cut shapes in various materials.
These are the essential DIY power tools for your home.
