Dewalt Power Tools – Framing and Remodeling


Dewalt tools are designed to assist in everything from the construction

jobsite and industrial work to the everyday work at home projects and

hobbies. And having the right dewalt power tool on hand will make things

go faster and easier.

One of the dewalt tools you need to have around is a circular saw. If

your doing general repair work involving plywood or paneling, a regular

grade saw will work fine you. If your cutting a lot of heavier framing

material, you may want to purchase a construction grade saw. This will

prevent the saw from burning up over extended use. The construction grade

is made a little more durable to withstand a larger load.

Some other dewalt tools you may want to invest in are their air nailers.

These really help speed up the process. They also have portable air

compressors to run these tools. When using these pneumatic tools,

always take safety precautions. I have seen cases where nails are angled

to much and bust through the side of framework. You need to make sure

nobody is standing in the line of fire, so to speak. These are good dewalt

tools to have but some experience is needed. Always put safety first.

Since we’re in the woodworking line, another pretty handy dewalt

power tool is the compound miter saw. The miter is like a chop saw for wood.

It allows you to preset different angles without having to use a square to

and mark your cut. A real time saver. With the compound miter you can cut

different angles all in one pass. This is really helpful for framing roof valleys,

shadow box picture frames,corner trim,etc… The miter also adjusts to make

right hand or left hand cuts.

There is a line of dewalt cordless saws. These range anywhere from 14 volt

up to 36 volt. Nice to have when you don’t have a ready power supply on hand.

This also has the advantage of no extension cord to drag around. The quick

chargers will recharge your batteries in one hour.

No matter what the task, there is a dewalt power tool to help you get the job

done. Always remember to put safety first when using power tools of any kind.

They are built to help you, but if used improperly they can hurt you.
