Working More Professionally Makes The Job Easier

June 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 149

Whether or not you are a professional contractor or a weekend DIY enthusiast, using power tools properly can yield above average results. There are a few guidelines to follow in order to ensure that you and your power tool are working together.

Keep your bits and blades sharp at all times. No matter which tool it is, dull or pitted blades and bits will result in awful tool performance, and damaged materials. Dull drill bits will burn wood, and bore sloppy holes. When working with metal, dull bits will crack, and they will tax a drill motor to the point of burning it out, if the operator is not paying close attention. Blades on circular saws and reciprocating saws will have equivalent results. Replacing blades and bits, or having them professionally sharpened is essential for good performance by a power tool.

Let the power tool do the work, so your job as an operator is not to push the tool. Whether drilling or cutting, your job is to steady and guide the tool because forcing tools to work through materials will cause binding and erratic behavior. This can cause you to stop the tool during the task, leaving you with the unfortunate job of trying to restart the power tool mid cut.

Learn to understand power curves, and other subtleties that go along with power tools. When using a circular saw for example, get to know how it cuts, based on the physical guides on the saw. Material consumed by a blade can cause nominal measurements to vary, depending on how you guide the saw down its preset path.

Become hyper aware of your work area. Whether you are working in a shop or on a job site, always know the location of power cords, saw horses, and additional materials that might be close to you. Getting your foot wrapped around a cord, or running out of room while making a long cut can often compel an operator to stop work midstream, so this is something that you always want to avoid. Practice fundamental safety because superior safety results in good work. Wearing safety goggles will keep your eyes clear so that you can see your work area. A clean work area will give you ample room to make steady cuts safely. When you are comfortable working with a power tool, the results will be obvious. Working logically and not "bulling" through a job will make you seem like a pro.
