New Tools at the Tool Library

We are excited to add a variety of new tools that our members have been asking for.  A portion of the money we raised from the Give!Guide was used to purchase these high quality tools.  Many of the new  tools described below are factory reconditioned and almost new:

DeWALT 4-1/2-Inch Small Angle Grinder

This grinder is great for sanding and grinding high spots in concrete or cutting steel bolts. This is a nice heavy duty tool to add to our collection.

Bostitch Compressor and 18-Gauge Brad Nailer

With all the pneumatic tools in the Tool Library, we decide to purchase an air compressor. This is an oil-free compressor and good for all of your around-the-house projects.  The 18-Gauge Brad Nailer takes up to 2” nails and is great for adding all that trim work in your house.

Heavy Duty 1240w Electric Demolition Jack Hammer

Because of the popularity of this tool, we now have two jack hammers.  This is an awesome tool for removing old concrete slabs and pathways with ease.  It is also fairly lightweight and easier to handle compared to most jackhammers found at rental stores.

The most important thing to remember when using this tool is to keep the oil level filled to maintain proper lubrication. We also have an extra set of chisels to use with the jack hammer, since they do wear out with use.

Pneumatic Palm Nailer

A palm nailer is useful for nailing joist hangers on a deck, framing walls in your house, or nailing in awkward spaces. The nailer connects to an air compressor and fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. It functions like a regular hammer by driving a nail into the wood with a piston that moves back and forth.  It is intended for rough nailing and not finish work.
