When you're working on a home project that requires tools or machinery, always wear sturdy shoes with slip-proof soles. Roll up your sleeves and tie back your hair to keep it out of the way as you work. So that you're not juggling a thousand things, carry your hand tools in a tool belt, and keep nails and screws in a canvas nail apron. Above all, use the appropriate safety equipment:

Wear heavy work gloves when you're doing anything that could smash or scrape your fingers. Use rubber gloves when handling toxic materials. Don't wear gloves when cutting or drilling; the tool could slip out of your hands and injure you. Because it can your fingers from accident. Whenever you do grinding, filing, chiseling, or any other work that involves dust or flying chips, wear safety goggles (or even a full face shield) to protect your eyes.
Wear a dust mask when sanding or doing other work that might stir up particles that could irritate your respiratory system. The most effective masks are marked “NIOSH-approved” approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. They are generally thicker than cheaper masks and have straps for a tighter seal.
If you're going to be subjected to harmful vapors or fibers (such as those from insulation), wear a respirator. The best models come with interchangeable, color-coded cartridges to filter out the harmful effects of toxic dust and fumes from specific materials, such as paints and adhesives.
If you'll be kneeling a lot, wear protective kneepads or kneel on a folded blanket or thick layers of newspaper.
When you use a loud power tool or otherwise make a lot of noise, protect your ears with foam earplugs or earmuff-style ear protectors.
Keep a fire extinguisher handy in case a small blaze breaks out.

Tips on Buying Power Tools

Power tool can help we to faster complete job. Choose good power tool can make good job.

Most gardeners consider a lawnmower to be a necessity, but what about other power tools? Power tools that arenot used often tend to become undependable, so if you have a small task or one that you perform only once each season, a good-quality hand tool may do the job as well at less expense and with much less noise. You also may be able to rent power tools that you use only occasionally. When renting, reserve tools in advance; shredders, for example, are in great demand in fall.

Choose tools that can do multiple jobs. String trimmers often come with edging attachments that can help with leaf shredding, too. Place dry leaves in a garbage can and chop them with a string trimmer.

Go for less noise. Gas-powered tools tend to be the loudest and electric motors are noticeably quieter. Tools powered by rechargeable batteries are not especially powerful, but they’re usually less noisy than other types of equipment.

Put safety first. Donot buy a tool whose on-off switch isnot well marked and easily reached. Check the amperage rating for any electric tool before connecting an extension cord (the rating will be listed on the tool). If you donot use an extension cord of sufficient gauge for the amperage, you risk having the tool’s motor burn out. Disconnect the sparkplug cable on a gas-powered tool to prevent an accidental startup.

Good tool for the right jobs.

Crosscut Saw

A crosscut saw is a handy tool for cutting lumber, making furniture, and for other wood-cutting tasks.

What a Crosscut Saw Does

A crosscut saw is a specialized handsaw for manually cutting wood across the grain. Crosscut saws include a blade and a handle. The blade edge below the handle is the heel and the opposite end is the toe. The numerous cutting teeth between the heel and toe have alternating cutting edges. Each cutting tooth cuts with one edge and pushes the sawdust out with the other. Crosscut saws have 8 to 15 pointed teeth per inch.

How to Safely Use a Crosscut Saw

To safely use a crosscut saw, draw a straight line on the wood member you want to cut. Firmly hold or fasten the wood so that it will not move during cutting. Place the saw's central teeth on the line opposite you and push the saw in a short stroke to start the cut. Once started, pull and push the saw to cut the wood, making sure the cut follows the line. When nearly done, make sure the end of the wood being cut is held and will not splinter due to the unsupported weight.

For safety, always be aware that the teeth of a crosscut saw are sharp and pointed. Placing them point-down on an object or a body part will cut it.

How to Maintain a Crosscut Saw

Crosscut saws require periodic sharpening by a professional saw sharpener or with a quality saw sharpening tool available at major hardware stores. Keep your crosscut saw sharp for safety and for optimum cuts.
