Petropedia explains Power Tools
Power Tools are divided into two major categories, i.e., portable and stationary. As the name suggests, the portable power tools can be easily carried from one place to another due to their light weight. The stationary power tools are large machines that are tightly fastened to make them function properly. Power tools need compressed air, combustion or electricity to work. Some advantages of using the tools are:
- They are powerful thus are capable of offering high levels of torque.
- They have three-jawed chuck thus can hold bits with straight and hexagonal shanks.
- They provide precision, power and smoothness to the process.
