Now that you’ve decided you need a cut-out tool for your next project, do you know which one is right for you? They are also known as spiral saws and drywall routers. There are many manufacturers who have created their own version of these power tools and each of them offers different features, different amounts of power and speeds. There is a perfect model out there for every type of builder if you know what features to look for before purchasing.
First, let’s go through the different usages of a cut-out tool or spiral saw. The most common and basic use for these construction tools is cutting holes in drywall for electrical boxes. This is by far the most basic task but the other options include:
- Cutting laminate flooring
- Plastic materials
- Vinyl siding
This is just a very short list of different materials and usage examples that you may need your spiral saw for. This power tool is most often used for cutting holes but in some occasions it can be used for cutting straight lines as well, should you require this.
Now, although you may already have your favorite brand in mind, it’s important to make sure you take the time to shop around. Other top of the line manufacturers may have what you’re looking for as well. The basics of choosing a drywall router is to consider the power and speed behind the product in association with amps and RPMs. It is standard to find 5.0 amp motors in the most powerful of these construction tools on the market today but some can kick out more RPMs than others using the same amount of amps.
For usual construction projects like drywall cutting, it’s a safe bet buying a 5.0 amp with 30,000 RPM cut-out tool. This will get the job done without a problem and can be used on tougher materials as well. For those of you who are looking for faster cutting, look for spiral saws with higher RPMs to get the speed out of the cut. The more speed you have, the smoother this construction tool will cut.
Start your search with brands like DeWalt, Makita, RotoZip, and Dremel and you will likely find one of these manufacturers has created the cut-out tool (or drywall router) perfect for your needs. Consider the project you’re working on, future projects, the amps and the RPMs and you are making an informed decision.Immobilienmakler Heidelberg Makler Heidelberg
