Helpful advice for those home DIY jobs
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.
