  4. Nail gun: Firstly, because it sounds deadly, and secondly because it has a large number of useful applications around the house. These uses include framing, roofing and a variety of finishing jobs that are completed with ease using this tool.
  5. Bandsaw: For accurate sawing tasks a band saw is what is required. It can be used to cut wood and metal depending on the type of blade fitted to the device.
  6. Belt Sander: Intimidation factor – High. Traditionally used to prepare wood for later, finer finishing work, DeWALT belt sanders are available as cordless or corded models.

  8. Impact wrench: This device can be used for vehicle related jobs, assembly and construction uses and if you ever require a quick tyre change on your own batmobile, it will take mere seconds.
  9. Lathe: It is most often used in furniture making but for those more adventurous at heart it can also be used to shape the bones of hunting trophies into all manner of different shapes and designs.
  10. Jigsaw: It is designed for cutting intricate shapes for decor and can easily cut curves in a variety of different woods. Mark out the required shape on the wood you are cutting and simply follow the lines with the blade. Easy as pie.
