Do-it-yourself at home or in the garden is a brilliant way of spending free time, which brings not only a lot of joy, but also a lot of satisfaction. However, DIY would not be possible without the right equipment. We suggest what equipment to choose at the beginning.
This is a device without which a real DIY enthusiast cannot do without. However, if you want good quality equipment, it will be quite a big expense. The best will be a cheaper model from the professional line, which costs from 500 to about 1000 zł. However, such a drill will be a good investment for years. And what model to choose? First of all, pay attention to the torque, which is the most important parameter of the drill. The higher the torque, the harder the material can be drilled
Pay attention to the rotational speed which tells us how fast the drill will be able to drill the hole. Also important is the power rating, which tells you what materials you will be able to work in. Also consider what kind of power supply you will be most comfortable with – electric or cordless. The former is mains powered, so the length of the cord can become a limitation. A cordless drill can be used anywhere but it is important to consider the battery capacity and how long it will last
An electric stapler will also come in handy when doing small renovations or hobby stuff. Electric and battery-powered models are best, but manual models will also work well for DIY. You can use this stapler for all sorts of materials, so it’s a great tool for upholstery, for example.
Angle grinders are also multifunctional devices that can be used for surface grinding, cutting, polishing and also sharpening. However, when looking for the right equipment, you should pay attention to such parameters as the diameter of the handled disc, the power of the device (in the case of corded models), the maximum rotational speed of the disc, the type of spindle thread and the vibration level. It is also worth mentioning that this equipment is not crazy expensive, and a really good model you can buy for about 150 PLN
Another device that can come in handy at the beginning of your DIY adventure is a soldering station, also called simply a soldering iron. It is a device used for soldering, i.e. joining materials by means of a soldering alloy (binder), which then joins metal elements together. The melting point must be lower than the temperature of the metals being joined. Soldering irons are indispensable for working with electronic and electrotechnical components, and some models are also suitable for use in welding plastics or cutting. There are different types available on the market, but the most popular are heater soldering irons. These devices are small and handy to work with. The cost of these types of soldering irons is low, which makes them ideal for amateur use and for general work on electronics. If you are looking for such a soldering station, then be sure to check out the Botland brand
