The angle grinder is a popular tool because of its versatility. It grinds, shapes, cuts, polishes and hones a wide variety of materials and is especially good for maintaining other tools. When using this tool always make sure it is in an open space and that there are no flammable liquids in the work area.
Circular saws are the workhorses of any construction job but you have to know how to use them.
Hold it correctly and make sure you have the right blade for the type of material you are cutting, and that the blade is sharp. Set the cutting blade to no more than a ¼ inch thickness of the wood to be cut – this helps reduce the chances of kickbacks. And don’t force the saw to cut, just push it slightly and let the saw do its job. Most importantly, make sure the blade stops before you grab the wood.
When it comes to drills, the most important tip is to make sure you have the right bit and a sharp bit. Let the bit drill the hole – if you are forcing it then the bit is dull. For drilling metal, make a centre punch and for hardwood make a pilot to prevent splitting. When it comes to plaster go slow and if necessary put a piece of tape where you will be drilling to prevent cracking.[caption id="attachment_327" align="alignnone" width="453" caption="BOSCH BAT181 Power Tool Battery"][/caption]

When buying a power tools battery, you will probably only have one or two choices that fit your computer. Choose the battery with the longest life available for your computer. There are several different kinds of laptop batteries; because the technologies of each are very different, a drill must be designed specifically for the type of battery it uses. Most power tools are only designed to use one type of battery technology.
