Power Tool Repair
Power tools tend to get some pretty rigorous wear and tear. In the course of a project they’re dropped, banged around, and, if you’re the absent-minded sort, left out in the rain. On top of that, sometimes parts just break or wear out. When something does go wrong, don’t think you have to send it off to a professional, or worse, throw the tool away. What you should do instead is to go to one of our favorite websites, Tool Parts Direct, get the busted part(s), and replace them yourself. It’s going to be far cheaper than having someone else do it, and you end up with a better knowledge of how your tools work as well as the satisfaction that comes with fixing it yourself.
Tool Parts Direct has a full library of tool schematics, which makes finding the needed parts very easy. Even if it’s just one little screw, they can get it to you. We’ve rarely run across any repairs that took longer than an hour to make, confirming to us that it’s really not worth it to have someone else do it. As an added bonus, you’ll also be able to start scavenging the tools that other people are throwing out and fix them up too.
