Your Questions About Carpenter Tools



David asks…

I’m power tool shopping, need advice?

Triton brand, how are they? I am at the point of being a poor carpenter wannabee. I like wood working and I need a good miter saw, I saw a Triton on amazon for three hundred shipped with the laser sliding the works. is triton a good brand or should I stick with the dewalt for another $100?

Any good places to get inexpensive power tools that will last a long time would be great as well.

Dusty answers:

There are times to save money and times to spend. Buying a miter saw is the time to spend.

No point cutting corners on the device you’ll be make corners with.
The miter saw is the workhorse of th shop and needs to be solid dead nuts on, with each cut. Saving money sounds good but you need to think value. Once you loose confidence that a 90 degree cut will be 90 degrees your hate your saw.

I simply could not make a purchase for this type touching it – knowing how hard it lock at it presets and how many presets it has. I Would also look at accessory items and their cost as these can get pricey.
Lastly Never buy tool that says “professional grade”

I own a 10″ Makita compound and couldn’t be happier. I used it to build 7rl hundred pieces of furniture over the past few years. I think I paid 520 ish for it.

Lizzie asks…

Bringing culture to the masses isn’t a job?

Louis Hamilton demands that his racing car is in top condition.
A carpenter makes sure that his chisels and saws are sharp.
A fisherman insists that his trawler is seaworthy.
Why am I castigated as an actress for worrying about my face, figure and voice? They are my tools of work.

Dusty answers:

Because people might think you are vain. But that is a very good way of putting it, since it is usually one-sided. Good persuasive writing!

Donald asks…

If Jesus came from a place whose technology far exceeds today’s technology,,.?

,..then why is it, being a carpenter, he couldn’t have built homes and buildings better than Bob Villa? Why didn’t he ever mention tools like a staple gun or a power saw? If Jesus came from a world that exceeds this world in technology, then surely Jesus would’ve at least mentioned things like hoover cars and electricty and power tools.
and MP3 players, and ray guns, and supercomputer, etc….

Dusty answers:

Maybe god told him to keep it secret….

James asks…

WHICH ROTARY HAMMER DRILL TO BUY?

i personally never really needed a rotary hammer drill until now( iam a carpenter) so i need a heavy duty tool.

the problem with buying off the net is you dont have the feel for the tool, just the specs, i have 2 options and would like your opinions plz

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/270752822767?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Milwaukee-SDS-Plus-Rotary-Hammer-Drill-Brand-New-PFH-26-/320776340196?pt=AU_Power_Tools&hash=item4aafc282e4

i like how option one comes with drill bits

but for option two i like how its slim and has a higher power output ( which is strange because i always thought that vertical piston was more powerful)

anyone encounter these two tools before?

thanks guys!

Dusty answers:

I’ve owned an older version of the Milwaukee. New, it was great – lighter than the Hitachi it replaced and ‘just-right’ in the torque department. But, similar to a handful of other Milwaukee drills I’ve gone through, the armature barely made it to its 2nd birthday before sparks were flyin’. When I retired the Milwaukee I picked up a Bosch and have been happy ever since.

P.S. To hear that there are still some carpenters working made my day. Thx.

Charles asks…

I need help with gift ideas?

My father was diagnosed with cancer and it has traveled to his brain causing facial paralysis, dizziness, etc. He now has a feeding tube and walks with a walker (just for stability) but can no longer drive or do the things he use to. He hates being cooped up in side all the time. He has always been a man’s man. Loves the outdoors, golfs, hunts, carpentry and building (he’s helped build houses and he built his tool shed which is more like a miniature house), he worked as an appliance repairman, every time he gets a new electronic he takes it apart to see how it works, he’s horrible with computers, etc. Also, he is nearly 60 years in aged but looks and acts more like 45-50 and he doesn’t drink but does smoke. I hope this all helps. I’m desperate for ideas. Anything that could keep him busy

Dusty answers:

You can just get him smth really original and sentimental that will remind him of you everytime he looks at it: a 100% hand-made painting from your favorite photo together. I’ve discovered this website that turns photos into beautiful hand-made paintings and the prices are really affordable too. Here’s the link: www.paintedsouvenirs.com ..Good luck on finding the right gift!

Paul asks…

I want drive a 1 1/4″ screw into two 3/4″ plywood manually?

I want drive a 1 1/4″ screw into two 3/4″ plywood(total 1 1/2″) to fasten manually using a screwdriver. Is it possible to do this(say about 10 screws) by hand without a power tool? Or am i gonna look stupid.

I have never done any such project involving carpentry. Help needed. I feel up to the job and strong enough. But want to make sure before i buy the material. Please suggest if a using the right screw(drywall?).
Thanks

Dusty answers:

By drilling a clearance hole (just big enough for the screw to fit through) through the first piece of plywood, then place it on top of the Second piece of plywood. Insert the screws and twist them in. This way you’ll only be screwing into one piece of ply. Screwing through the top sheet is counter productive as only the bottom sheet is doing the holding. It will also give you a tighter fir, because the screw will be pulling the two together. So Man-up and start screwing those screws.

Mary asks…

What tools did carpenters use in the 1800′s?

I have an assignment on the history and technology to do with bikes from the 1800′s until now.
I need to know what tools carpenters used before technology had advanced, and the materials that were used to build bikes over 100 years ago.
Thankyou :)

Dusty answers:

They had a hand saw. Drills. Handkerchiefs. Nails were expensive. If they tore down an old house they would save the nails for the new house. Bikes weren’t that popular in the 1800′s but harley davidson has been making motorcycles since 1903.
