Help­ful ad­vice for those home DIY jobs

Macclesfield Express - - HOMES -

ARE you look­ing to DIY this sum­mer?

Bosch power tools brand manager An­drew Hatch has come up with some ex­pert ad­vice for choos­ing the right power tool for the right job, so un­der­tak­ing ba­sic tasks in and around your home this year should be as easy as hang­ing a crooked shelf.

An­drew said: “If you’re look­ing to fi­nally get those odd jobs around your home com­pleted, or you want to set your­self the chal­lenge of un­der­tak­ing a small project, I would rec­om­mend pur­chas­ing a power drill and a multi-tool.

“A drill is a great start­ing point for any tool­kit, as it can be used to work with many dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als in­clud­ing tiles, brick­work and wood.

“This makes it an ex­tremely ver­sa­tile and handy im­ple­ment to have in your home.”

He said both corded or cord­less were use­ful for sim­ple DIY jobs, such as hang­ing pic­tures and putting up shelv­ing.

An­drew added: “The benefits of a cord­less drill are that you can com­plete jobs in hard-to-reach ar­eas with­out has­sle from trail­ing ca­bles.

“Cord­less also means you can tackle jobs all over your house with­out the need for a plug socket.”

He said an­other use­ful ad­di­tion to any DIY tool­kit was a cord­less multi-tool which al­lows you to at­tach a va­ri­ety of ac­ces­sories to one tool.

This then en­ables you to saw, cut and sand with ease – per­fect for all kinds of do-it-your­self jobs.

He said: “It’s ideal for tack­ling DIY jobs such as short­en­ing door frames to al­low them to close prop­erly, grout­ing bath­room tiles, sand­ing fur­ni­ture or cut­ting into metal and wood – mean­ing you don’t have to pay a pro­fes­sional to do odd jobs around your home.”

He added that ad­vances in Bosch Lithium-Ion bat­tery tech­nol­ogy meant cord­less tools held their charge for a lot longer, which made it ex­tremely con­ve­nient for peo­ple who are only oc­ca­sional DIYers.
