Hand Tools Aid To Make The Planet A More Better Place



The world would be a different place today without the invention of hand tools. Starting as far back as the cave days humans have been using and making utensils to live and survive in their environment. Even the simple wooden tool was an important element for everyday life back then.

These days woodworking tools have become a necessity for many things. A carpenter cuts and fits various pieces together while using small devices that are specially made for fastening and shaping the work. In the absence of these instruments, certain things could never be built at the exact dimensions and shapes. Truly, these are a testament to humanity’s creativity.

The sheer number of woodworking tools that can be purchased today is overwhelming. There are hammers, files, and machines that can clean the wood. One of the most popular types of hand devices is a screwdriver. This is because everything is held together by screws today. It is the most purchased fastening device in the world for this reason. Everything imaginable requires a screw or screws to be useful.

Some of the hand utensils are exclusively made for manual operation while others are powered by compressed air or electricity. Power tools also come in every imaginable type. The most impressive ones come with the capability of performing several tasks. A battery operated screw gun is one example this. It can drive screws, drill holes, and sink lag bolts into just about any type of material. The better ones will also have an impact feature for driving tough bolts or chipping concrete.

Without the different types of power tools that have been invented throughout the years many tasks would be difficult to perform. Some of them are highly specialized and designed to perform just one specific task while others are made for more general use. A circular saw is only limited in what it can cut by the type of blade that is installed. However, a joiner is designed to do one thing and that is all it does.

Types of instruments will certainly not be limited to just a few categories. For example, garden tools also come in a variety of sizes and shapes too. Like the versions mentioned above, a few of them will be very generalized. Others will have specific uses and this is all that they can do. Garden tools powered by electrical motors are typically designed for one job. A garden tiller turns over the dirt, However, that is all it will do. On the other hand, human powered utensils can serve a variety of purposes.

Purchasing tools today has become very easy thanks to the Internet. Many high quality websites specialize in selling them. Specific sites will sell items just for carpenters or just gardeners. Others will sell a tool for everyone and everything. The best thing about buying them online is the price. Since the overhead at an online shop is lower, they pass the savings on to their customers.

In summary, owning hand tools will make any job go smoother. Purchasing them online is much cheaper. Anyone that needs to shop for tools should investigate online tool shops to save money.

Wow, these are some awesome power tools. If you’re searching for tools, we got hand tools and much more – what can you say? We are a tool store!

TOOL REVIEW: Marking Tools for Tough Materials



Watch more tool reviews at FineHomebuilding.com: www.finehomebuilding.com On some materials – glass, tile, metal, and PVC for instance – a carpenters pencil just won’t cut it. Luckily, there are other options for leaving a mark on those hard-to-write surfaces. You’ll find some of these pens, pencils, and markers at your local homecenter, but I’d also recommend a trip to the art supply store. There you will find marking solutions for all sorts of surfaces. www.finehomebuilding.com

Small Tool Box For Pick-Up Truck Bed



I built this to carry small tools or stuff I buy at the store to protect the items from the rain. It is small but I wanted to be able to take it out of the truck in case I needed to carry large items. I did not want a hinged cover because on a nice sunny day I could carry taller items such as groceries,etc. Also if I have a small job to do for someone I can throw the tools in this box rather than letting them slide all over the truck bed loose.

Ruth asks…

Gift idea for man involving woodworking & creativity?

The hubby developed a new interest in woodworking recently when helping out another with some projects. We do not have woodworking materials at our place and we live in an apartment so no garage etc. to work in. It would have to be a small enough project that it could be done in the apartment and he is very creative/artistic so if it involved some sort of design aesthetics after etc. would also be nice. Don’t say bird house lol. I would need to get him materials and tools. We don’t have tools minus the normal hammer, screwdrivers that every house has. So not something that is going to require tons of money on tools because we really can’t be having some circular saw up in an apartment anyways :-) I just want to get him a woodworking project that he would enjoy. This is one of my ideas for his birthday or fathers day coming up, so not much time till then. Any ideas please share and if you could, include the materials/tools I would need to get as I know nothing about woodworking.

Thanks!

Denny answers:

Portable work bench that clamps projects, chisels, jig saw, mitre saw, electric sander, assorted screws or nails, project books can be good. Any of these he should like. Nothing more satisfying than creating things.

Mark asks…

New to woodworking- any tips?

I want to make a menorah for my friend before december. I have a shed full of tools (my grandfather was a woodworker as a hobby). Does anyone have any tips, plans, etc. that I should know or have before I begin this project? I have searched the web for some plans for menorahs, but I cannot find them. It is meant to be more of a decorative item and will have to have some sort of metal inserts, being wood, but I just want to be able to create it and send it to my friend.
Thanks everyone.

Denny answers:

My tip is to make sure all your safty stuff and first aid kits are up to date before you start.

The horror of my year 8 woodwork class and the idiot guys in the class are still in my mind….. Powersander to some guys face is not pretty.

Sharon asks…

woodworking: a gift?

So, I had originally decided to start my boyfriend on a nice toolset. Now, i’ve delved a bit deeper only to discover that what he is actually interested in is woodworking. He wants to be able to build, and put fancy details on, things like tables, chairs, shelves… the like. We both live in apartments until we’re married, and neither of us have a garage or anything, so my set for him needs to start small. What is a great first tool or several tools that every woodworker should have? What will prove to be the most useful, and what should I avoid? I’ve already got a gift for him for Christmas this year, but our anniversary is coming up, as is valentines day, as is his birthday… so many ideas would be great! Please tell me specifically what to look for, how much it should cost, what the best/worst brand is, and where i can go to get it (i’m in michigan… we have home depot, lowes… and…i think thats it). thanks guys!

Denny answers:

If he really has no tools I would suggest a cordless drill as the first. You want one that comes with two batteries so you can be charging one while you use the other. This is more of a handyman tool, not just for woodworking but it’s probably the tool any woodworker will use all the time. I like the Dewalt 18Volt drills. The DeWalt DC759KA is probably available at your local HD or Lowes. It comes with 2 batteries and a charger. Additional accessories would be a set of drill bits and an assortment of screwdriver bits.

Makita and Milwaukee are also good brands. Stay away from the Black & Decker and Skil, they are`the cheap consumer lines and they won’t last. If you buy cheap tools you will regret it.

Is it impractical to build a large table out of real ebony wood?

I love the look of gabon ebony, but I don’t know much about it or woodworking. I guess I’m asking if money or tools aren’t an issue, is it still impractical? Are there other factors I don’t know about, ie weight or hardiness?

Denny answers:

It is very impractical. The size of ebony lumber is very small requiring a great deal of glue ups. It is very expensive and currently controlled because of environmental considerations. Finally, it is very, very hard and difficult to work. It eats up tools like you are cutting concrete.

Http://www.woodworkerssource.com/ebony_gaboon.html

You can get a 4 by 8 foot sheet of veneer for about $550. See the link below

The Carpenter by Nightwish – Lyrics



Here is the song The Carpenter by Nightwish. I hope you all enjoy the song! Lyrics: Who are you? Man condemned to shine a salvation Throughout the centuries Why? Was the wine of the grail Too sour for man to drink… The carpenter Carved his anchor On the dying souls, of mankind On the tomb of this unknown soldier Lay the tools of the one who for us had died Tools of the carpenter! The one they lick The same old sick Dream of their precious saviour Kiss them deep And make them weep Over promises of eternal peace The carpenter Carved his anchor On the dying souls, of mankind On the tomb of this unknown soldier Lay the tools of the one who for us had died Tools of the carpenter! ( Keyboard Solo ) ( Guitar Solo ) I hear you, through the symphonic voices of nature The purity I could never doubt They tell me to lie on the grass, and observe my saviour The one crucified to the chirping of birds ( Keyboard Solo 2 ) The carpenter Carved his anchor On the dying souls, of mankind On the tomb of this unknown soldier Lay the tools of the one who for us had died Tools of the carpenter!
