Upgrade Your Tool Collection for Fall Home Projects

Comments (0)

When the last cookout is history and it’s time to move “indoors” and on to fall home and shop projects, Woodcraft suggests that you consider adding some new tools to your collection for easier home improvements and repairs.

New Hardware

Change the look of your décor with new hardware in every room, and try out some new jigs from KregDrawer Slide, Concealed Hinge, and Cabinet Hardware Jigs, along with the Kreg Shelf Pin Jigs (1/4" and 5mm).

“Kreg Hardware Installation Solutions make it easy to add the perfect final touch to your projects by allowing you to confidently install knobs and pulls, concealed door hinges, drawer slides, and adjustable shelves,” Woodcraft senior product development manager Peter Collins said. “These durable, adjustable jigs position your hardware and guide your drill so you get accurate, repeatable, professional-quality results every time.”

Collins also noted, “These jigs are an essential part of the Kreg ‘Kitchen Makeover Series’ that provides a helping-hand for those folks that aren’t building new but rather changing hardware and paint colors.”

Concealed hinges are great for mounting cabinet doors because they stay out of sight, they’re adjustable, and they work smoothly.

The KREG® Cabinet Hardware Jig is great for updating your cabinets or furniture as well as new hardware installation on your building projects.

Installation of hardware, shelving, cabinets, doors and windows and many building projects require a driver, like the Bosch PS31-2A 12V Max 3/8" Drill Driver that comes in a kit. Lightweight and compact, the lithium-ion Bosch driver delivers 265 inch-pounds of torque and is great for overhead and tight area work.

Sawing & Sanding

Sanding is a necessary part of many home and shop projects. For hand-sanding, the Preppin Weapon is an ergonomically shaped ABS plastic sanding block that fits comfortably in your hand to reduce fatigue. Use wet or dry and load as many as 4 sheets of sandpaper at one time, removing each one as the abrasive wears out. For power sanding, the Norton 5" Random Orbital Sander features a 2.0-amp motor that generates 12,500 orbits per minute and provides a 3/32" orbit that helps make quick work of most sanding projects. Ergonomic, rubber palm grip is comfortable and eliminates fatigue. An 8-hole, hook-and-loop pad face offers increased versatility in abrasive selection.

For cutting, grinding, sanding, carving and polishing, the Dremel 3000 Rotary Tool with 24 accessories is a good choice. The upgraded tool features an EZ Twist™ nose cap with an integrated wrench that allows the nose cap to function as a wrench to tighten accessories. A more efficient fan design and side vents for a cooler running tool make it comfortable for extended use.

Finishing

Once a project reaches the finishing stage, the new HOMERIGHT Finish Max Fine Finish HVLP Sprayer is a good choice for application. The Finish Max will handle any solvent- or water-based product – latex paint, milk paint, chalk paint, furniture paint, stains and finishes. It is easy to set up, use and clean. Features include precision volume control and an adjustable spray pattern. HOMERIGHT Small Spray Shelter and Large Spray Shelter will help contain overspray and drift when using the sprayer.

Paint and stain just about anything using the HOMERIGHT® Finish Max HVLP Sprayer.
