Beginning woodworkers tend to primarily purchase miter saws and table saws. In order to purchase tools that will serve you properly as you gain more experience, you need to know what to look for in a saw. A great tip for gaining inspiration or information on more DIY projects is to check out woodworking stores that sell discounted tools and woodworking shows can be a great source as well.How to Choose a Woodworking SawMany times the first and most important power tool people buy for their workshop is the table saw. Typically, voltage for saws come in 120 or 240. Normal household circuits take 120 voltage for saws. For 240 voltage, a dedicated circuit is required. Most of the time a 120 volt saw will suffice, but if you require more power you can get an electrician to put in a dedicated line for you. Usually only professionals, who have regular use for their saw, require 240 voltage.Take these things into consideration:Motor powerLeft or right tilt directionCapacity of dust collection; too much dust can be a health hazard and can be a mess to cleanFence Accuracy; you want a fence that will be easy to use and adjustable.Woodworking Miter SawsIt can be daunting when you are trying to pick out a Miter saw because there are so many options out there on the market. When working with wood, they are one of the most important pieces of equipment because they handle cutting angles precisely and quickly. If you want to narrow down your options when choosing a saw, an important source of information is reading reviews.Furniture making projects and replacing trim for your entire house are examples of big jobs that are great for Miter saws. In terms of the entire appearance, a tight Miter can make a big difference. Two options for miter saws are to either use them on the ground or on a stand. The stand option is best when you have to cut a lot of wood.Jigs for WoodworkingWoodworking jigs, which tend to be an essential part of a diverse-array of projects, increase accuracy and save time. When you need to create many pieces, using jigs can not only be much faster, but can ensure that all pieces are identical. You end up with more professional and consistent results. Depending on the type of project and the desired results, you can determine what jigs you need.Woodworking supply shops will sell jigs, but you may be able to find cheaper options on the internet. Consider making your own jigs if youd like to save more money. You dont want to spend too much money on expensive wood when making them, because usually, they are used only once.Most Common JigsTaper jigs are used for tapering table legs, chair legs, and other furniture.V bock jigs are great for boxes and frames.Dovetail jigs can aid in making dovetail joints.What to Look For When Purchasing Woodworking ToolsEven experienced woodworkers can go into contractions when it comes to trying to buy a new tool can you imagine how a novice must feel?The rule of thumb when buying anything is when you dont know much, if anything about the product, select the cheapest or near cheapest price, or we pick the most powerful version, thinking that if one power is good, two must be better. We all do this with one thing or another, but doing this with power tools can be hazardous to your health. One example of buying too much was a friend of our familys daughter. Finally got her first apartment and decided to fix it up a bit. She needed to fasten a bookshelf to the wall and decided to purchase a portable drill. There are dozens of them around. In her mind she wanted a good one and promptly purchased, at the sales persons recommendation, an 18volt drill. Honestly, if this young gal is 100 pounds soaking we, I would be amazed, she is a wee bit of a thing, and you guessed, the first time she used the drill, the bit caught something in the wall and twisted out of her control to the point she had to seek medical attention and was off work for a few days and in a sling for two weeks. The drill was simply way too powerful for her.Purchasing power tools goes beyond looking at power, just ask the woodworker who purchased a portable drill and the third time using it the battery pack actually blew out the bottom of its case, barely missing his leg and this was an experienced woodworker. Like purchasing anything, a bit of research can go a long way. As a rule, I have found most tool salespeople to be well informed, but remember, they will be trying to sell you the tools THEY sell and not what might be best for you, so keep this in mind when you are looking. Without going into depth on many different tools, here are some points that I have found useful in purchasing tools.Warranty look for tools that have a long or even lifetime warranty. These tools will be among the better performers because they manufacturers do NOT want to see these tools coming back to them for repair or replacement.Price I always find that purchasing tools that are priced middle of the pack gives me about the best value. I can often find a very decent tool, with a good warranty that is competitively priced.Power As noted above, bigger is not always better. I am an average sized woodworker and I have no use for drill over 14 volts, they are too heavy and too powerful, even for me they can twist my arm look for what will do the job for you.Corded or Cordless you will generally pay much less for corded tools, BUT they are less convenient. If think you will be using your tools a lot, battery power is good, if you are only going to use your tool occasionally, corded is probably fine for you.Where to Buy as always, a reputable dealer, preferably one who has a selection to choose from and who will stand behind what they sell.If you use these guidelines in purchasing tools you will reduce your risk of purchasing poor quality tools or tools that dont suite the work you need them for save yourself some time, money and lot of frustration.Where To Get Your Woodworking MachineryHaving the right craftsman tools is important for anyone that is into woodworking, whether it is simply as a hobby or whether you take up woodworking as your profession.
