hey guys I’m Alex with this cop house
and let’s talk about tools
so if you followed me for any length of
time on this channel you’ll know I talk
a lot about how to construct buildings
the different components to the
buildings how to design the buildings
but I never really go too much into the
tools that I use so I’m gonna start
talking more about the tools that I use
because your tools make a huge
difference in your work efficiency and
accuracy without the right tools you’re
not going to get the job done right so
I’m gonna teach you a little bit about
the tools that I use and today we’re
going to start with this tool so this
tool here is the makita die grinder and
basically it’s just like a big dremel
but much heavier and much more powerful
so I picked this up last year and I’ve
been using it a lot and more
specifically for carving and grinding
down stone and brick and that’s what
I’ve mainly used it for but you can do a
lot of different things with this tool
just think of it as a large dremel so
all the purposes of a dremel into this
much more powerful tool so the makita
die grinder comes just like this then it
comes along with two little wrenches
which are needed to remove the collet
head so you can put your bits inside and
it’s a really simple tool simple design
simple to use there’s a slide switch so
it’s either on or off and I like to hold
it like this just grip the handle that’s
got a nice rubber gripping in here and
then I’ll hold it with the non-dominant
hand the other side and all sometimes
I’ll really hold it close to my body
depending on what I’m doing and you can
really get a lot of control with this
tool so if you’ve never used a tool with
bits like this you have to
know how to remove these Colin ends so
it can be a little confusing if you’ve
never done it before but I’m going to
show you how to do a real quick it’s
actually really easy so that’s why it
comes with these two wrenches so you’ve
got a hold one end of the colic in place
and then put the other one the collet
head here and then you’re gonna twist
opposite directions to release that and
unscrew the collet and then you can
remove the actual comment this is a 1/4
inch call it and you can actually
replace it with a 1/8 inch collet so
that you can use any kind of dremel
Dremel style bits so it’s a really
versatile tool and can do a lot of
things with it so we have both pieces
here we take the head we put the bit in
and then it goes into the collet and
then goes into the die grinder screw the
head back on and then again hold one end
and tighten the other end so you want to
make sure it’s real tight because you
don’t want these bits coming off
so there’s many style bits you can put
in this die grinder and I’ve got some
diamond tipped bits which I use for
grinding stone and concrete bricks they
worked really well for anything that’s
very hard now I also have some carbide
tipped bits which are pretty versatile
they’re also cheaper to buy so you can
use these on stone soft stone like
limestone here or you can use it on wood
lots of different applications for these
and they have all different styles and
shapes so you can carve lots of
different things wood stone brick
concrete mortar whatever difficult thing
you need to carve or polish up okay so
let’s talk about safety with this tool
so first rule is to always keep it
unplugged
whenever you’re changing out your bits
because you don’t want to accidentally
hit that slide and turn it on as you’re
changing your bits now also you want to
make sure your comet is tight enough
because you don’t want those bits coming
out obviously spinning it 25,000
rotations per minute so that’s basic
safety on this when you’re holding it
obviously keep your hand tight above the
spinning bit now I do recommend wearing
eye protection whenever you’re using
this because pieces can fly depending on
what you’re grinding or cutting and I
recommend hearing protection it’s not
that loud of a tool but if you’re
working with it for a long time it’s
good to have and now importantly if
you’re grinding anything that’s going to
create a lot of dust in the air
especially like stone or kind of
creature
or would too I do recommend a good
ventilation mask this is a 3m these are
easy to find and just a couple there
maybe 20 bucks for one of these and they
last quite a while without needing your
replace these filters so that’s basic
safety with this tool definitely keep
that in mind so what do I think of this
tool honestly I really like this tool a
lot and I’ve gotten a really huge amount
of value out of it so it’s lightweight
it’s easy to use it’s comfortable for a
long time I mean you can keep this thing
running for a long time doesn’t give
machine any problems it’s comfortable in
your hand under long periods of time so
overall I mean really I can’t even think
of any cons for this tool it could have
a variable speed for the on the switch
but I really don’t need that personally
so I can’t even think of anything wrong
with this tool at least for my purposes
so I can speak at least from a carpeting
perspective if you’re doing any kind of
stone sculpture stone carving any kind
of brickwork might be good for brick
Masons too if they need to remove dried
mortar really a great versatile tool
though for probably any kind of craft or
trade so I really do highly recommend
this tool in the key to die grinder I
think I picked this up for a hundred
bucks so this tool has definitely paid
itself off in value so I really believe
in having good tools and this tool has
definitely earned its prime place in my
workshop and I’m gonna leave a link in
the description below to find out more
about the makita die grinder and I’ll
also leave links to my personal safety
and protection equipment that I use and
so with that said until next time I’ll
talk to you dead and be safe and get out
there and
do your craft
