6 Power Tools You Need for Your Home Makeover
Home makeover can be done without the help of experts (believe it or not 😉 ). If you want to save money on repairs and other renovation expenses, you should have these tools on hand and know how to use each one.
Here, we’ve compiled a list of some power tools that are essential for a DIY home makeover. With Christmas coming up, now might be a good time to start shopping for that someone who loves projects and needs some new tools 🙂 . . . or just get something for yourself and start some projects!
Having a cordless drill in your toolbox is very convenient – you can take it anywhere and you can use it even in places where there are no electric outlets. It is powered by rechargeable batteries. All you need to do is to recharge it and you will be able to use it anytime! Comparing a cordless drill with a screwdriver, it can be used faster and much more efficiently. I especially love the drills with the light – it makes it so easy to see in small dark places. Buy it now here!
Imagine the time you spend driving nails manually to different types of surfaces that varies from wood to metal. It takes a lot of time and energy, doesn’t it?? This is the reason why a nailer or a nail gun is so convenient. A nail gun uses compressed air and drives the nail to the surface in just a second. You can drive a maximum of 60 nails per minute with the use of this tool. Talk about getting things done 😉 Buy it now here!
The main feature of a band saw is its continuous blade that is long and sharp. It also comes with other features such as miter gauge and rip fence. It can be used to cut different materials. The problem with manual cutting is the uneven marks on the edges. With a top rated band saw, you can get a finely cut wood, timber and even metal. Buy it now here!
If you are going to compare a scroll saw with a power jigsaw, you will definitely see the difference in the edges of your project! A scroll saw is manufactured with a pedal that allows cutting to be flexible. Unlike other types of saws, it has a reciprocating blade. The saw can pivot – which allows you to cut curves and other more complicated designs. Not only is this saw good for a home makeover, it is exactly what you need for any type of woodworking project!

Also called a drop saw, a miter saw is specifically made for trim and molding. This type of saw is portable and can be relatively small compared to other saws. Using a miter saw with a laser guide allows you to get an accurate cut. The laser guide helps you accurately point to the part of the wood or the material to be cut. Buy it now here!
In achieving a smooth surface, a sander is perfectly designed for this task. A handheld sander is electrically powered and functions with the help of compressed air. If you manually sand a project using sandpaper or a sanding block, chances are you won’t get it as smooth as you could if you use a sander. I honestly loooooove using a sander 😉 Something about using it and getting wood *perfectly* smooth is so satisfying! Buy it now here!
There you have it – your six power tools you need for your home makeover . . . or any DIY project . . . or just to have because they’re fun to use 🙂 Go make something!
