3 Essential Power Tools for DIY Projects

Some people say that a job is not done unless it is done by their own hands. It could be true if we were still in the neanderthal era when a rock and a tree trunk were more than enough tools, but those Neanderthals didn't have to build cute bird's nests for their little girls or work on remodelling the shed into the ultimate chill zone. For some DIY projects, a power tool is a necessity in order to finish those small home projects quickly, with precision and without feeling like you participated in the hunger games or some sort of gladiator sport.

General description of Power tools

The basic definition of a power tool is a tool which is operated by an additional power source other than manual labour such as electric, hydraulics or mechanic power. They come in two categories; stationary and portable. The stationary ones will usually be fastened to a work surface and these are usually the bulkier power tools and they often have the advantage of speed and precision. However, the portable tools, which are hand held are smaller in comparison and are better for mobility, you can easily move about the house with them.
