Portable power tools and shop tools revised

  1. 1. Unit Two: Construction Tools, Tool Use and Tool Safety<br />Introduction to Hand Tools:<br />Portable Power Tools and <br />Shop Tools<br />
  2. 2. Portable Power Tools and Shop Tools:Jig Saw (Sabre Saw)<br />A jigsaw is a tool used for cutting curves or custom shapes into a piece of wood or metal. <br />
  3. 3. Portable Power Tools and Shop Tools:Drill<br />A drill is a tool fitted with a drill bit for boring holes, or a driver bit for running screws into a variety of materials such as wood or metal.<br />
  4. 4. Portable Power Tools and Shop Tools:Circular Saw<br />The circular saw is a tool for cutting straight lines in wood or other materials. The material to be cut must be secured in a stable position while the saw is advanced slowly across it. <br />
  5. 5. Portable Power Tools and Shop Tools:Reciprocating Saw<br />A reciprocating saw is a hand held saw in which the cutting action is achieved through a push and pull reciprocating motion of the blade. A reciprocating saw is commonly used in construction and demolition work. <br />
  6. 6. Portable Power Tools and Shop Tools:Pneumatic Nailer<br />A pneumatic nailer, also called a nail gun or air nailer,is used to drive nails into wood or some other kind of material. Driven by compressed air, nail guns have in many ways replaced hammers as tools of choice among many workers in the building trades.<br />
  7. 7. Portable Power Tools and Shop Tools:Pneumatic Stapler<br /> <br />Works just like the air powered nail gun but uses staples as a fastener. <br />
  8. 8. Portable Power Tools and Shop Tools:Compound Mitre Saw<br />A compound mitre saw, also known as a chop saw, is a power tool used to make a quick, accurate crosscut of dimensional lumber. Common uses include framing operations and the cutting of flooring and molding. Most mitre saws are relatively small and portable, with common blade sizes ranging from eight to 12 inches.<br />The most important feature of the mitre saw is the changeability of the cutting angle relative to the fence. Many mitre saws provide "stops" that allow the mitre cuts to be quickly set to common angles (such as 15°, 30°, 45°, or 75°).<br />
  9. 9. Portable Power Tools and Shop Tools:Table Saw<br />A table saw is a versatile woodworking tool consisting of a circular saw blade, mounted on a table, that is driven by an electric motor. The blade sticks through the surface of a table, which provides support for the material, usually wood, being cut.<br />
  10. 10. Portable Power Tools and Shop Tools:Table Saw<br />A band saw is a power tool which uses a blade consisting of a continuous band of metal with teeth along one edge. Band saws are used for woodworking and metalworking and are particularly useful for cutting irregular or curved shapes, but can also be used to produce straight cuts..<br />
