I actually can’t think of a better way to put it. I’ve been using a Klein power tool for almost two years now. It’s been my best friend, my partner, and my tool of choice. In fact, I’ve never been happier with a tool in my hands.
I first started using my K-tool in college, and I’ve been using it ever since. I use it for everything from cutting wood, to painting, to drilling. Its the perfect tool for everything from sanding to sanding and painting to painting and sanding.
That’s because you can use a K-tool as a straight-edge, and it is a straight edge! K-tools are designed to use the edge of your hand as a straight edge, not your teeth. So, when you’re using your straight edge, it will be perfectly smooth and precise, and it won’t be as hot as you might otherwise get with a drill or miter saw, which is why I consider it the best straight edge out there.
With the right drill tool, it’s the perfect tool for all those tasks you probably would have to do without one. But I digress.
the K-tool is definitely the only straight-edge you’ll need. For a straight edge I recommend the K-LINK straight edge. I bought mine for $80, so you’ll have to shell out that much more for just a straight edge. The K-LINK straight edge is basically a K-tool with a sharpened edge. It’s made of high-quality stainless steel and has a black finish which is what I love about it.
The K-LINK straight edge is a great way to get a straight edge you need, and it helps you get the edge you want without wasting a lot of money. This straight edge has a straight edge that is sharpened to the point of being razor sharp just like the K-LINK straight edge. It takes a little practice to get comfortable with it though. But for those times where you might get the straight edge you want, this is definitely a great option.
But steel, being a metal and a metal has a lot of downsides. The biggest downside of any metal is that it rusts easily. I mean, really, how many things do you go through that a rusty can be a problem for? The other downside is that steel is a good conductor of heat, so sharp edges will rust. And a sharp edge will scratch, so you might have to replace this edge at some point.
That’s why it’s best to use a high quality hammer and chisel for sharpening. Also, always sharpen it with a file, but not every edge is going to be a problem.
That said, the tools don’t really last forever and I don’t expect them to. I only got my first set of Klein’s power tools, the “klein nail bits”, around a year ago and I’m still using them today. I’ve got a good collection, and they were sharp when I bought them, so I’m not going to lose them in a flood.
The tools are not just for sharpening things, though. They also make great hand tools for building things, cutting out nails, drilling holes, and cutting metal. And, they are the first tools I bought as a kid.
I think most people have a collection of tools before they get a power tool, or just before they buy a tool. The tools that are in the new trailer though are for making things, and that is something I don’t have. I have a few drills and some hammers, but not power tools. If I did have power tools, it would be like a kid who still has his first toy that he knows he will never use again.
