“China Tools”

In the 1980s and 1990s, the term “china tools” was associated with large apparently oversized tools of doubtful steel quality. Today, most brand manufacturers produce the products in China and other low cost countries – albeit with strict quality system. In parallel, the production of low-cost products in the neighboring building takes place. The difference lies in technology and quality, but today we can find a fully customizable bat or jigsaw that has the same features as similar tools from the well-known brands.

It’s not much to be used to before the amateur feels that his job grows over his head. The job meant for two days may take weeks and threaten to steal animal free time. Often, we lack both knowledge and suitable tools.

Carpentry – a place to be

Carpentry stalls can be used for more than shelter for small crows with bad fathers in their heels. It can also be a shelter for adults who want to unplug, let go of gruff – often in combination with a little carpentry and other useful work.

Preferably, the carpenter should be in a separate building where noise and dust do not propagate to the cabin. The booth should contain a massive workbench and a solid boot. The door should be wide enough for a wheelbarrow. Good light is also a success factor. There should be suitable storage space for the tool and for material residues.

What is quality tool?

Quality is about expectations of the person paying for a product. “Good quality for that price” is called. Then a lower but adequate standard has been accepted in relation to the use, and evaluates the product in relation to this.

A drill of 99 crowns can often do the same job as 3000 crowns, but the difference can also be perceived as significant for some. A more expensive model produces less noise and vibration, the weight is lower and the handling (ergonomics) better. For battery tools, the batteries will mean a lot of quality experience.

Crown spared can mean minor annoyances throughout the life of the tool, but it depends on how active “h andyman” you are and the passion of tools.

Equipment and Hand Tools

Some necessary tools and tools still work without power. We start with the basic equipment. In our experience, the following applies:

Folding workbench. There are few things we’ve had more in the cabin than the folding toolbar. The prices start at 139 kroner for a 7kg Biltem edition and up to 1600 kroner for an expensive 19kg Stanley 93-927 MPC with built-in saddle rack. The most expensive can be a fastening device for power tools, foot-mounted mountings (Wolfcraft Master 800) and adjustable height legs (Black & Decker WM 825). It is important that it is not unsteady.

Screw wings. Together with the workbench, the screw wings hold down the workpiece. Screw wings of good quality are something that lasts. The cheapest are slick, thin in the screw handles and have poor protective plastic, but can work. If you want to concentrate on the job, select them for 149 kroner rather than those for 49. One-handed fork in plastic, which you jack with one hand, is a quick alternative to easier jobs.

Hammer. Hammers range from 400 grams to 900 grams. Cheap hammers with wood, tube or glass fiber shovel win on weight and price but lose weight. Know the weight difference and how they are in your hand before investing. Estwing L310 is a forged hammer with good handle and a typical, good compromise between weight, ergonomics and strength, but is around 400 kroner. Stanley’s new Fatmax “Antivib” is another good afternoon and a good alternative to around 300 kroner.

Knitting iron. Or cubein if you want is an absolutely necessary tool, no matter what kind of outdoor work you have to do in the cabin. Even when it comes to knitted iron, there are good and bad. What is made of 6-edged, sealed steel with sanded claw is a good starting point. In the case of demolition work, the barrier is essential, but it is also suitable for tilting of moldings and panels, or as an attack button for a distré joiner. Also for finer jobs like adjusting windows and doors, or moving heavy furniture, the cube is suitable. A sharp cube can also be used as a “bark spade” to remove glue oils. a. on floors and walls.

Custody that holds for a project or two, costs below the dog slip. They are good as long as it lasts and a typical use and throwing product. Today’s sweeteners are hardened and can not file or “wreck” when the matter is blunt and jams. But a case for 400 kroner (b. example. a Bahco 2600-22XT-HP) with teflon sides and superstars in the teeth, even an amateur will be able to appreciate, purely useful.

Hoop. Planers are used mainly for two things. One is to level out small or large unevenities. For this purpose, use is also made of shovel or long haul. The long haul is as its name says, longer than the shovel – up to 50 cm long, and the weight and length make it effective on larger surfaces where it planes down the peaks without falling into the waves. The other work area of ​​a reel is to change dimensions on the subject. Then use an electric rack consisting of two rotary knife cylinders. The planks are incredibly efficient and can narrow a table, make it thinner or fresher a socket.

Screwdrivers are available in all variants. That is, the original legal trainer is probably on the folding front. Now there are pozidrive, Phillips, Torx, PH, Umbraco, PZ and others, without having the complete overview of what is what. Screwdrivers in all shapes are available in all grades. Shine away from the cheapest – it’s a toy and not worth the frustration. Solid screw tools are almost perpetual and are not destroyed by hand.

Polygriptang. A large polygraph ring (or water pump pole if you want) has a versatile application and is larger in the jaw than a corresponding large pipe. But the pipe tongs give more power to the bite.

Toolbar on wheels. A number of smart editions of toolboxes stacked on some kind of sacking rails give the hobbysnaker extended action radius. A folding workbench and such storage unit almost make the joke unnecessary. That exploration of missing tools can be limited to less than one square meter, nor should it be underestimated.

The basic equipment also includes some electrical tools. To mention everything can not be done between these permeans, but here is something that will definitely benefit from a cabin:

Drill with wire. Unlike the car, we gladly let the old drill be in service, even though it is hopelessly old fashioned. New and useful drills make you forget about the old traver in a flash. Even brands such as Black & Decker, Skil, AEG and Bosch are drilling in affordable editions that thank the old one with a good margin.

Battery grill. The biggest change in recent years is probably improved battery technology. More and more versions come with Li-Ion technology (lithium battery). Battery chargers are soon full of those who require cable for. function and features. Stroke and torque of 60-70 Nm and more are not unusual on today’s battery thrills. Screwing requires low speed and high torque, while drilling requires speed and little torque. Once the machine has given, the problem is solved. Most commonly, 12-18 V.

Screwdriver. Clean scrubbing machines are small and handy but only suitable for screwing, as opposed to drills with stroke, drill and screw function. There are many handy screwdrivers, but often with “old” battery technology.

Electric Jigsaw. Today, even the cheapest Biltema cases have adjustable pendulum function, stepless speed and laser beam for marking the saw line as well as adapter for chip suction. The more expensive brands also offer better ergonomics, work lights, spark blow function, key blade change and full electronics control of the rpm, but more costly. For those who know to appreciate tools with latest technology, there are many possibilities.

Cutting and Yeast Saw. When scaffolding and roof beams are to be cut at the right angle, the race is indispensable. It also works as a fermentation saw for moldings or parquet. The blade can be angled and tilted and the more advanced editions have a telescopic feature that makes it possible to sawn parquet tables and other wide subjects. This is also available on the Biltemautgaven for around 1000 NOK. Sagdybden varies from approx. 45 mm to 60 mm and is important if you are going to cloak coarser boards or, as some oddly, use the race to. A very useful and accurate tool found in prices from some dog tags, for professional models that round 7000 kroner.

Multicultural. From the world of surgery there have been small, handy oscillating cutting machines, the saw blade vibrating and eating right into the subject to be processed. Fein and Proxxon are leading manufacturers of such machines, while cheaper brands come with prices from 200-300 kroner. Of the more famous brands, the Bosch PMF 180 E is around $ 1000.

Borhammers. A drill hammer is perfect for making holes for reinforcements and bolts for bridges, stairs and railings in the mountains. Also for the penetration of groundwalls to dense insecticides to be vented. Therefore, it is probably most appropriate to rent – not own.
