Carpentry Power Tools Part 2Carpentry power tools come in a large variety of makes and models. Power tools have become better designed to suit its requirements. There is one tool that almost everyone has that is a drill Drills vary in price and quality a lot. You can either get a corded drill or a cordless drill (battery operated). Battery-operated power tools these days are more common now because of the new technology for batteries. It used to be that the cordless power tool had insufficient power and longevity. Not that long ago you couldn’t drill too many holes on one battery but now you can drill as many as a few hundred holes on one battery charge. And if you have a second battery and charger in place you can work nonstop basically. These days the battery and battery chargers charge very quickly and some claim that their battery charger will charge 80% of the battery 15 minutes. Lithium-ion batteries don’t have a memory so you can discharge and charge at lesser than full capacity, without ruining the battery. I use three different types of drills from different manufacturers. My number one drill is my festool which uses the latest battery technologies. This drill can work hard all day with no downtime for battery charging. As soon as my drill stops, I removed the battery and exchange it to the charger.
The same goes for my Mikita power tools:
- Cordless Reciprocating Saw (BJR182Z)
- 6-1/2″ Cordless Circular Saw (BSS611Z)
- Cordless Jigsaw (BJV180Z)
