DeWalt Power Tools for DIY Projects

Why DeWalt Power Tools ?

DeWalt power tools can be found at most reputable retailers and offer a quality product that will outlast the ambitions of most DIY enthusiasts. While almost all power tools can be rented for the day, purchasing a few specific power tools can be helpful and cheaper in the long run. Although some power tools are universally helpful, the types of power tools that are required largely depends on the scope and size of the DIY projects that are attempted.

 

De Walt Combo

 

DeWalt Cordless Drill



A cordless drill allows you to drill holes and offers all the functionality of an electric screwdriver. While DeWalt offers several models of cordless drills, all are appropriate for most home improvement projects. DeWalt power tools also offers a hammerdrill, but most homeowners do not require the power that a hammerdrill provides unless they often work on a concrete slab. We like the Dewalt DC759 18-volt 1/2-inch Cordless Drill/Driver which is ideal for doing small repair jobs around the home. We’ve reviewed plenty other types of drills, both corded and cordless including hammer drills. Go here to read the hammer drill reviews.

 

DeWalt 6-1/2″ 18V Cordless Circular Saw


While many professionals avoid cordless saws, weekend do it yourselfers who do not often work with a saw may prefer them. This cordless DEWALT Bare-Tool DC390B saw offers a reasonable amount of power to complete most jobs, with the added bonus of not being able to accidentally cut through the cord when completing a project. Beware, however, that this DeWalt saw may lag during long projects and may require a recharge if large amounts of cutting is required. Note too the battery is not included with this item.

 

DeWalt 18V Cordless XRP™ Jig Saw Kit with Keyless Blade Change


Many DIY enthusiasts work on smaller, more detail oriented projects where a jig saw becomes useful power tool. Unlike a circular saw that is used for rough cutting lumber, a DeWalt jig saw is capable of more delicate work. One that we really think is awesome is the DEWALT DCS330L. Going from 0-3,000 rpm it has an all-metal lever-action keyless blade change allows for quick and easy blade changes. Ideal for those tricky jobs.
All-metal keyless shoe bevel with detents at 0 degree, 15 degree, 30 degree and 45 degree which as you can guess provides versatility for easy bevel cuttig.n A jig saw can cut curves and navigate sharp corners, making it a handy power tool to have when working with furniture and other smaller projects.

 

DeWalt 2 HP EVS Plunge Router

Fixed base routers are less expensive, but the added functionality of a plunge router makes it well worth the additional cost. Routers are known as a specialty power tool primarily used by woodworkers. Cabinet doors and furniture edges often feature the handiwork of this power tool. Therefore, if the DIY expert in your home has dreams of tackling more advanced woodworking projects, a plunge router is an excellent power tool to own. Based on the great reviews we suggest you consider the DEWALT DW618PK, which is available to order online.

 

DeWalt Finish Nailer

A finish nailer is a great time saver when installing molding and flooring. Not only is a finish nailer easier for most novices to use than a hammer and nails, but it also embeds the nail deep enough into the surface of the wood that a nail set becomes unnecessary. Be sure to purchase a finish nailer such as the DEWALT D51257K , not a framing nailer, which is a power tool intended for much heavier use and preferred by construction crews.

 

DeWalt Power Tools for DIY Projects Conclusion

We like Dwalt, there’s no hiding that at all, but we also like Bosch, ShopFox, makita, Jet and a all lot of other great tools by great manufacturers. There’s a guy down the road from me, who is pure Ryobi, mainly he says because the color scheme matches, partly for the interchangable batteries. Each to their own, I say.
