It is necessary to maintain and care for any appliance should the owner wish to gain maximum service and reduce risk of injury. One of the more common types of equipment is the hand tool and improper use can jeopardise the user’s safety. Electrical appliances such as chainsaws, drills and sanders allow for tasks to be completed quickly but can also carry an increased safety risk.
There is a long list of such appliances that have uses which range from domestic use in the home to industrial applications. The four categories that encompass all hand tools are diving and striking, hammering, pinching and gripping, and cutting appliances. Power tools have seen a massive improvement in how work is carried out in construction. They can be carried conveniently to the site as opposed to projects ferried to the equipment.
Electric drills are one of the more versatile tools used in industry today. This is because when the user changes bits, the application also changes. They can be used as various tools such as a drill, auger, bore or screwdriver. They use the correct volume of power to perform the required duties and can also change the speed of the drill itself.
The saw sees a lot of use when it comes to cutting plastic, wood and a number of metals. Saws that are powered by other means than electricity are convenient when it comes to cutting small pieces of metal or wood but for larger size pieces, the added power of electricity will allow a chainsaw to perform the task comfortably.
The sander is more commonly used in smoothing wood as well as edges of wood-based projects. The finishing gives wood its required textures, as well patterns on some occasions.
