9780966675313: This Old House Essential Power Tools (Essential (This Old House Books))

Buying a power tool can be intimidating, and buying the wrong one makes how-to projects tougher than they have to be. Our aim in this book is to help you save time and money by choosing the right tools for the job. Master carpenter Norm Abram and contractor Tom Silva, both of This Old House, provide their power-tool wisdom in these pages.

Review:

Power tools have only been around a little over a hundred years now, but the fast pace of modern construction is wholly dependent on their speed and power. The sensual pleasures of and personal satisfaction in working with hand tools notwithstanding, the fact is, when you need to get a big job done and you don't have all the time in the world, there is no practical alternative to power tools. This book provides a quick yet reasonably comprehensive look at their history, use, and safety requirements, is lively, beautifully illustrated with color photographs and hand drawings, and includes information on the latest and most technically advanced tools now on the market. --Mark A. Hetts

From the Back Cover:

Barely a century has passed since the very first power tool left its hand tool cousins in the dust. Now it seems that renovations and even minor household repairs don't really start until some-body plugs in something. "There's no question about it," says This Old House contractor Tom Silva, "a Power tool makes work easier and faster." Tag along with Tom and master carpenter Norm Abram as they show you exactly what to look for in a power tool and explain how to choose it well and how to use it safely. If you've ever wanted to work on your own old house, you're sure to get the tips you need in this lively and informative guide from the editors of This Old House Magazine.
