OTC Woodworking Tools Sets
Woodworking tools sets can save you money and time
When you start your collection of woodworking tools, sets might seem like they include more than you will possibly need. However, sets can be an economical way to include everything you need and also a few things that will help as your hobbies and projects grow in the years to come. While it might be hard to find power tools in sets, simple woodworking tools, drill bits and other odds and ends do come conveniently packaged so that you can take some of the guesswork out of buying and spend more time creating beautiful wooden works of art.
The most common type of hand tool set you will find is a multi-set of woodworking chisels. Look for a set with a large range of sizes, so that you can make cuts large and small. In addition, many hand woodworking tool sets will include a couple different types of gouges and a few skews, in both hollow and round points. If you plan to do a lot of woodworking by hand, make sure to get a set featuring nice ergonomic handles that will be comfortable to hold for long periods of time.
If you are looking for something that features a little bit more power, you may also have luck with woodworking power tools, which sometimes come in kits for hand tools. You will likely need a combo kit that includes a saw, a multi-tool, a drill and a sander. These tools will help with most of your cuts, shaping and assembly, and they can usually fit into a bag. If you don't have the space for an entire workroom, then a portable woodworking tool kit is perfect for you. You can also buy kits featuring chisels and bits for your power drill. These kits are great because they will help you handle a variety of materials and project needs with one tool instead of many.
In addition to traditional carving and drilling tools, you will need several measuring tools, which you can usually find as part of a kit. Distance and angle measuring tools, as well as levels, are important devices that will ensure stability and good construction, whether you are building a house or a doll house. In woodworking, proper measurements are half the battle. You will need a tape measure and ruler to measure distances, and you may want to consider a laser measuring tool if you need accuracy down to the millimeter. In addition, you will need devices that measure angles, such as a square or protractor. Again, laser tools can give you a more accurate reading if you need one. Proper angles will ensure that all of your pieces fit together smoothly. Levels, whether they are laser or standard levels, will help double check your work and ensure that your placement is correct before you set the final screws. Many laser levels also include a feature that tells you exactly how many degrees you are away from being perfectly level.
