Be Your Own Way, But Still Use The Safe Tools
by: Tony Gevano
It is so often that people are not aware with the tools they use when doing their home improvement. Sometimes they use wrong tools just because they want something quick to be done. Well, you must change that attitude. You have to understand that by using the correct tool it can avoid you from hurting and damaging the project you are trying to repair. Well, it sure does. Donít think you know everything about tools before you really search for tools information.

Letís start by some small items which mostly used to repair your broken equipment, for example, screwdriver. Using the right size and head of screwdriver is very important. Do you know why? Thatís because if you are using the correct one, then the screw will be easier to remove, and secondly, because if you use the incorrect one, then you can strip the screw which will make it impossible to remove.

There are other tools which also have to use correctly. They are scraper, putty knife, or spreader. All should have should have different functions, right? But, admitted that you are using the putty knife for all three, havenít you? HmmÖyou have to understand that scrapers have a thin, flat surface to enable it to get under the area that you want scraped off. Putty knives are a little more flexible and they are used for the application of wood and wall putty. Spreaders are used to spread mortar, grout, and other applications.

So, above example is only part of it. There are more other equipments which you must understand how to use it. Use the right tool for your job to make it quicker and easier on yourself! Itís better for being safe, then to hurt yourself.

Beside that, being safe is very important in doing home improvement. Take care of your working waste such as wood shavings, sawdust, errant nails, and other debris which might ruin your project. More worst if those waste fly you to the emergency room in hospital. Sure you donít want that to happen, do you?

Another stuffs which also dangerous is the flying object when you sanding, nailing, sawing, and just about anything else. You need safety glasses when working. If there is any chance of debris coming at you, then you need to put on your safety glasses. You only get one set of eyes, so protect them.

Face protection is an important part of safety also. A dust mask will prevent you from breathing in sawdust or paint chips as you are sanding. A respirator mask may be necessary if you are using chemicals in a small, confined space.

Above all, remember that no home improvement project is worth risking your life for. Use the appropriate safety gear at all times, and be safe!
