- Cordless drill
Drill is the most popular tools in carpentry. I select Ryobi cordless drill because of its light weight and ease to use. Furthermore, you can buy Makita or Hitachi firms but these product prices are quite expensive. You can save money by buying Japanese domestic products as it has better quality but cheaper prices.
I prefer Japanese domestic products including Hitachi and Ryobi because it has many kinds of batteries with durable and strong features. Makita brand is sometimes hard to find and change battery when it is out of order or broken. If you are lucky, you will have machine but I am not sure about the battery. People prefer to use Lion battery but in my opinion, NI-Cd battery is also a pretty good choice for low budget one.
- Cordless impact driver
Besides the drill, DIYers also need to buy for themselves an impact driver due to its benefits. When using an impact driver, you will save more time because you no need to change the drill tops. In this tools, I recommend you to use Makita impact driver as it has many strong features such as high capacity, longer battery and not heavy at all.
- Hand saws
Hand saws are extremely necessary tools for DIYers. If you want to do carpentry works, it is necessary to have this machine. This machine is suitable to cut small details in quick time. You should pay attention to buy an appropriate size of blade for your needs.
If you buy a large plank of wood, the first thing you need to do is cut this plank into small parts and the hand saw will help you to do that in its capacity.
- Polishing machine
Polishing machine will help you save a lot of time and effort than normal polishing method. All the things you need to do is cut a piece of sandpaper and attach it to the machine. There are many types of polishing machines such as vibration machine, rotate machine, rough machine… Each machine has different usages.
- Handy coping saw
Handy coping saw helps you saw round and curves lines in wood. You should invest to buy saws with laser line to guide so that you can get high accuracy in work. But only new products in large manufacturers have this feature. Purchase idea is also a problem. However, you no need to worry because according to my experience, the most important features of a handy coping saw are strong and accuracy. You can buy the Japanese domestic machines such as Makita, Bosch or Hitachi as these are the best brand of handy coping saws.
I recommend you not to buy Chinese and Taiwanese machines as the prices are not cheap and its features are very bad. When you buy Chinese and Taiwanese machines, it will be new at the first time but after a certain using time, it will be out of order and can not use anymore.
- Table saws
Table saws are the largest instrument and also the most dangerous one so you must be very careful when using. But when you own a table saw, you can create a lot of interesting things from it. You can choose Japanese products for better usage than Chinese products.
If you are not a professional, you should buy a domestic mini table saws with the blade of 30 degrees. Most important thing of this product is low price. If you do not have high budget, you can buy this machine to use, no need to buy expensive machine.
