Replacing Power Tool Switches - How to Know the Time Has Come

Replacing Power Tool Switches - How to Know the Time Has Come

It is no mystery that a lot can go wrong inside a power tool, what is a bit mysterious though, is how to determine exactly which part of your power tool is currently suffering. As we all know, power tools are some seriously cool machines, so cool in fact, they will literally try to help you solve this diagnostic conundrum.

Knowing which subtle clues to look for can help you diagnose a power tool problem in a snap. For instance, when your switch goes bad, your power tool will behave in a specific way.

The first symptoms to arise will come in the form of malfunctioning or failing start-ups. You will attempt to activate the tool and as if life has simply left it for greener pastures, the tool will be absolutely dead, or, at least, it will require several pumps and perhaps a joggle or two to revive itself.

Difference Between a Cordless Drill and a Cordless Hammer Drill

Difference Between a Cordless Drill and a Cordless Hammer Drill

Christmas is the time that men love, especially if he is a tool lover. One of the most common gifts given during this time is drills. Now, there are a lot of choices available on the market today and finding the right one is very important.

You don't want to buy something that is a overkill do you. Well, today I want to touch on a common question. What is the difference between a cordless drill and a cordless hammer drill? This is a common question that is asked more often or not. Does it really make that much difference? The answer is yes.

Plain cordless drills are machines that rotate a bit in a circular motion as the user provides pressure towards or away from the object that is getting drilled. The bit has groves that latch on and pull through the material. Plain cordless drills are usually used for drilling into wood, vinyl, or softer materials.

On the other hand hammer drills are a much more violent tool. The drill still turns a special drill bit in a circular motion but it also does an extra function, it hummers down on the bit pushing it into the material.

These drills are normally used for drilling into concrete or steal material, material that a normal drill would not be able to drill through. It also requires a special drill bit that will not break with so much friction.

A hammer drill is not the perfect tool for someone who just does small jobs around the house. And if the recipient does not ask for this kind of drill I would not purchase it.

So, who makes the better drill between DeWalt and Milwaukee? If you want more bang for the buck then you need to choose DeWalt. DeWalt make a very superior drill that will last over the long haul. The price is also very reasonable.

Milwaukee does have a very comparable drill, but Milwaukee drills have a high premium for ownership. They cost a lot of money. And for the type of money spent you could get one or two more options with the Dewalt brand.

Cordless Drills Are Paving Its Path Into An Indispensible Household Appliance

Cordless Drills Are Paving Its Path Into An Indispensible Household Appliance

From the earliest forms used in the ancient Harappan and Egyptian times, Drills have come a long way from the old school Bow drills, Brace and bit and Eggbeater drills to their modern day counterparts, such as electric drills, rotary hammer drills and cordless drills.

A good drill is essential if you're developing a sense of preliminary maintenance and even full-fledged renovation for your house. This is where the Dewalt cordless drill comes in to make the ride smooth and effortless as you can drill holes and drive screws with the same tool. This also saves you the inconvenience of finding another outlet near your place of work to power the drill.

Power, for cordless drill, is measured in battery voltage. Therefore, with a higher voltage comes more spinning strength to overcome the resistance of the material being drilled through. During the last decade, the top-end voltage has increased from 9.6 to 18V, but the ranges of models include 6, 7.2, 9.6, 12, 14.4 and 18V.

Most drills had pistol grips before the advent of the cordless drills. These pistol grips were behind the motor and possessed a shape, which had a striking similarity to the handle of a gun. However, to suit the technological advances and its need for convenience, the Dewalt cordless drill comes with what is known as a T Handle. Today's cordless models are equipped with a T-handle: The handle base flares to prevent hand slippage and accommodate a battery. Because the battery is centered under the weight and bulk of the motor, a T-handle provides better overall balance, particularly in heavier drills.

Most drills have two fixed speeds: 300rpm and 800rpm. A slide trigger allows you to choose the kind of speed most suitable for your work. However, most of the inexpensive drills have the same uniformity of speed. The latest breakthrough in batteries is of the NiMH or Nickel-metal-Hydride variety and these are smaller and run longer than the standard form of Nicad or Nickel-Cadmium. NiMH batteries don't come with any cadmium and therefore they come with less of a risk

The Dewalt Scroll Saw and the Weekend Hobbiest

The Dewalt Scroll Saw and the Weekend Hobbiest

The possibilities of making wood crafts and decorations are unlimited, when you have the right tools, and patterns. Dewalt tools are my preference, for the simple fact that they are dependable and they have a large variety for just about every job imaginable.

When it comes to making crafts and decorations the Dewalt tool I am really impressed with is the scroll saw. This tool allows you to cut some really detailed designs. You will need to have a drill on hand so you can make a starter hole for inside cuts. With this saw you can make wall hangings, clocks, decorations to set on you mantel or entertainment center ect... Lets go over a couple of these in more detail.

If your wanting to make a wall hanging with your dewalt scroll saw.

First you need to decide on the pattern. This can be something you drew up yourself or something you purchased.

Second, you need to decide what type wood you want pine, oak, cherry, walnut, etc... to get the look you prefer.

Third, place you pattern on the surface and trace the design.

After you get it transferred, take your dewalt drill and with a small bit drill holes in the center designs to be cut out. Now your ready for your dewalt scroll saw.

Loosen the blade adjustment and place the blade through one of the pre-drilled pilot holes and reattach it to the saw and set the blade tension. Make your cut. Repeat this step until all your designs are finished. Sand it down add a little varnish and your done. You can also glue some colored felt on the back to really bring out the artwork.

If you want to make a clock with your dewalt scroll saw. First you need to get a battery operated clock assembly. Your local craft store should be able to help you with this. Transfer your design just like with the wall hanging.

But, before you drill the pilot holes you need to add in the place for your clock fixture. Make sure you place it in your design where it will have enough wood to hold it solid. Make your cuts, do the finish work, add the clock assembly and you have just made yourself a hand crafted clock.

For making a mantle it is basically the same as the wall hanging, just leave a flat spot on the bottom of your design. Cut out a platform and take your dewalt router and put a contoured edge around the top and glue your designed piece in the center. And you have a mantle piece.

I suggest sticking with single piece designs until you get the feel of your dewalt scroll saw. Then you can move on to multiple piece designs that need to be glued together. But with a little practice, the possibilities of things you can make with this dewalt tool is unlimited.
