Tool Tales: Exploring Hand and Power Tools for Different Projects
3 min read

As the name implies, industrial hand tools are used by hands, and they don't need electrical power or a motor. They are used in several industrial projects. Hand tools are generally less dangerous than power tools.

Having discussed the meaning of hand tools, let us learn some examples of hand tools and their uses.

They are used in a variety of projects and include:

  • Screwdrivers

These hand tools are used to install or remove screws. They are available in a variety of sizes. They come with a plastic or rubber handle and a head made of an alloy with different types of tips. They are generally manual but can also be electronic or pneumatic.

  • Hammers

In this tool, a heavy head is attached to one side of the wooden handle. The head is used to deliver an impact on an object, such as a nail, and drive it into a material like wood.

Other types of hand tools include:

Cutters, files, striking tools, struck or hammered tools, clamps, snips, hacksaws, drills, and knives are other industrial hand tools.

What are power tools?

The power tools and accessories are electronic devices that are powered by electricity or batteries. Such tools enhance the speed, strength, and efficiency of the work. They come with accessories, which are components that extend the capabilities of power tools beyond their basic functions.

Purpose of such tools

These tools require less manual labour to complete a task. They use electricity and can complete a task efficiently. For example, a power drill with the right drill bit can easily bore holes into almost any surface. Generally, electronic drill machines work on wood, metal, concrete, plaster, and more. Likewise, using the correct blade in your electrical saw machine would result in a smooth section of your timber.

Some examples of power tools include:

  • Power drill

These are the workhorses of any toolbox. They come in various sizes and can be customised with any drill bit that is required for the process. Various types of bits are available, such as twists, spades, etc. The former is versatile and is used to drill holes in wood, metal and plastic, while the latter is specifically designed for wood. Masonry bits are good for concrete and bricks.

  • Routers

These are versatile tools used for shaping and trimming wood. Template bits are also available to create duplicate shapes in the material. The templates guide the router along specific paths to make sure the cuts are precise and crisp.

Summing it up

As we know, tools can boost productivity, but using them improperly can be risky. They can cause accidents or injuries. Follow proper safety measures to ensure your well-being when using such implements.
