Give your favourite handyperson something they really want - a power tool! Here’s five ideas that are sure to be a hit.
A drill is probably the most used of power tools so should be at the top of your power tool gift list. Choose one that’s suited to the person you have in mind and what you think they might be doing. A large heavy drill with all the bells and whistles might be a bit much for someone who drills a few holes on their craft projects.
Specially designed for driving screws, an impact driver is the perfect companion to a drill. You can usually find a great drill and impact driver combo kit so you can give them everything they need in one go.
If your certain someone is into woodworking projects or is got some painting on the list for the Christmas break, then they’ll really appreciate a sander. Small palm sanders are great for light work and getting into tight corners, while a random orbital sander is a good all-purpose tool that’s handle the heavy duty stuff and can be also used as a finishing sander.
If you can’t decide on one tool, then give them many tools in one with a multi function tool. It can be fitted with a range of different accessories so can be used for cutting, removing grout, scraping, and sanding.
Let’s face it; bigger is always better when it comes to power tools and a drop saw certainly fits that bill. They start from under $200, so they are more affordable than you might think. Larger models slide, so they can cut wider timber and also have tilting heads for cutting timber on two different angle in one go.
