Home improvements require a wide variety of tools
and equipment. Knowing how to use them will make the project go better, and keep you safer.
Almost any tool can hurt you if used improperly. Readling the owners manual will go a long way towards warning

it". Find another way.

dangerous, yet they did it anyway. Hind sight is always 20/20.
