Power Tools

Articles on how to use your power tool to tackles those DIY projects that you have been waiting to do.

  • How to use a Jigsaw

    Learning how to use a Jigsaw is a walk in the park thanks to this informative article! All that’s left to do is swing past our store to buy yourself a new Jigsaw! In our opinion, the jigsaw ranks a close second to the cordless drill as must-have do-it-yourself power tools. They are very versatile and work perfectly for around the house fixes and small woodworking projects. Even if you’ve never used a saw before the jigsaw is extremely intuitive and also safer to operate than most power saws. Children can also be taught how to use a jigsaw and can be one of the first power tools they learn to use. But as with any power tool, they should be respected and handled with care as well and proper safety equipment should be used when operating them. Jigsaws are perfect for cutting pine boards and plywood both of which will be used extensively in many of the DIY projects we are going to post. You can also buy saw blades that will cut laminate, tile and metal. Before using your jigsaw make sure you have the correct blade and your workspace is clear of any obstructions. You’ll also want to consider using gloves and we highly recommend wearing safety goggles to protect your eyes from sawdust. When you start your cut make sure the shoe of the saw which is the flat guide is firmly placed on the cutting material and start the blade before moving it into the wood. Mark out your cuts beforehand and keep your fingers far away from the blade. Also be aware of what is below your cutting material so it doesn’t get snagged by the blade such as a cord, table or pant leg. With more experience, you’ll get the hang of using your jigsaw and learn how to cut corners (literally) and make smooth cuts around edges For more information: Call or WhatsApp between 8am – 5pm weekdays only (082) 569-1394 | (011) 789-4411 / 011 036-0200 | marco@midasrandburg.co.za | 191 Bram Fischer Drive, Randburg.

  • 12 Tools every guy should own

    There is a tool for every job! Here are the top 12 Tools every Guy should own #Powertools There’s a big world (OK, your home) that needs fixing, and these 12 tools are just what you need to do the job. Regardless of what you need you can be sure to get it at Randburg Midas! Claw Hammer A good, solid hammer can be used for driving nails into wood as well as small demolition jobs. My old man would use his hammer for damn near everything, much to the chagrin of my mother. Go for the classic 500g hammer. It’s heavy enough for most basic home repair needs, but light enough for you to carry around without it being a nuisance. While your grandpa probably used a hammer with a wooden handle, you shouldn’t. Wood handles break easily. Go with something that has a long-lasting synthetic handle. Also, when picking out a hammer, you want one that has a good balance in your hand and isn’t head heavy. It’s a lot like picking out a golf club or a baseball bat. So go to the hardware store and try a few out before making your selection. Flathead Screwdriver A flathead screwdriver has a single blade that fits into the single slot of a flathead screw. Flathead screws have been around for a l o n g time, so it’s likely your great-great grandpa had a few flathead screwdrivers in his tool chest. While the Phillips screw has quickly taken the place of flathead screws in most projects, it’s still a good idea to have a few flathead drivers in your tool arsenal. In addition to driving in screws, flatheads can also be improvised for different uses like light prying, scrapping, and nudging. Quick tip: make sure the electricity is turned off BEFORE you start sticking a screwdriver in a light socket to pry out a broken bulb. Trust me. Phillips Screwdriver Invented by Henry F. Phillips in 1936, the Phillips head screw has quickly replaced the flathead screw in most projects. A Phillips head screwdriver has a four-star point at the end that fits into the corresponding screw’s shallow, cross-shaped depression. This design allows a user to apply more torque than is possible with a flathead screwdriver. The depression forces the blades of the Phillips screwdriver to slip out before any damaging over-torqueing can occur. As mentioned above, Phillips…

  • What is a Torque Wrench

    What is a Torque Wrench? It is a specially calibrated tool that is used to accurately tighten a fastener to a given torque #Powertools If you are in the market for a new torque wrench or if you would just like to know more about this tool and how it works, Randburg Midas is your go to shop. The torque wrench measures the amount of twisting force applied to the nut, bolt or screw that is being fastened. The wrench will be equipped with either a scale or dial attached which shows the applied pressure, featured on the rigid & flexible beam type torque wrenches. Ratchet or snap type torque wrenches have a ratcheting mechanism that releases or “snaps” when the selected pressure has been reached.
