Objective 15.01 Explain the uses of power tools to perform tasks in agricultural mechanics
Tools and their Uses Abrasive cutoff: uses a circular blade to cut metal A nail gun: is used to drive nails Band saw: uses a thin, continuous, flexible blade to cut either curved or straight lines Circular saw: makes straight cuts in wood
Tools and their Uses Compound miter saw: a cutoff type saw used to cut angles and square cuts Drill: makes round holes through wood or metal using a bit Drill press: a stationary tool used to make round holes in wood or metal using a bit Grinder: shapes and smoothes metal, sharpens tools, or removes rust
Tools and their Uses Hacksaw: a stationary power tool that uses a blade with back and forth motions to cut metal. Hammer drill: used to drill holes in masonry Jig saw: uses a back and forth (up and down) motion blade to cut curves
Tools and their Uses Jointer: used to straighten and smooth edges of boards or to cut bevels Planer: smoothes and cuts lumber to exact thickness Radial arm saw: moves to cut stationary piece of wood Reciprocating saw: used in tight or close situations in remodeling work.
Tools and their Uses Router: used to make molding or designs in wood surfaces, dado cuts, and rabbet cuts Sander: smoothes wood surfaces Saber saw: cuts curves in wood or other materials Table saw: used to crosscut, rip, dado or miter
