If you’re doing simple tasks like hanging up a picture, you probably won’t need a power tool to do it. But when you start doing bigger projects, power tools are very useful. A nail gun for example will save you a lot of time and effort. You will be able to find one at any hardware store that sells power tools in Bondi Junction or Sydney CBD.
Nail guns are powerful machines; they embed nails into pieces of wood at high speed in just a fraction of a second. Another interesting power tool is the surface planer. You might have never even heard of this power tool, but if will also make your work so much easier.
Before the days of power tools, everything had to be built by hand, using up lots of energy, and making things so much more exhausting. Surface preparation in that time was done with hand tools, and required skilled woodworkers to get the job done. Nowadays, most woodworkers just can’t afford to spend hours on preparing the surfaces, so they use a planer. You’ll be able to get yourself a planer at many hardware stores that sell power tools in Bondi Junction and Sydney CBD.
No matter what style of furniture you are building, you will need to square the pieces of wood. That means you have to make the surfaces flat and smooth. Using a good surface planer will smooth and flatten the surface of your wood, then you can use a table saw in order to make the opposite end of the board the right length. All of this will hardly take you any time at all.
Imagine how much time and effort it must have taken to do this same job before power tools were around. Some surface planers are huge; a 12 inch planer can be almost 7 feet long. So make sure you have a good safe place to store it. These tools are usually powered with 240 volt motors, so you can buy one and start using it the very same day. Keep in mind that the bigger the power tool, the more powerful the engine will be. Most of these tools are easy to be found at hardware stores that sell power tools in Sydney CBD and Bondi Junction.
