Although there are many different electrician in Lakewood fields, most will use basically the same tools.  In fact, electrical work cannot be done without having the correct tools.  The list of tools that an electrician uses has gotten longer over the years with the development of specialized tools.  There are ‘must-have’ tools every electrician uses for their job no matter what their specialty is.

Hand tools

These are the basic tools that all electricians need to perform everyday tasks.  The hand tools of today offer more safety and comfort than older tools.  They have made these tools ergonomically correct and also improved the designs to help decrease the wrist and hand injuries that are often caused by repetitive motions.  They also make it easier to perform the same motion repeatedly.

  • Pliers—the long-nose or needle-nose and side-cutting pliers are the most common tools an electrician cannot work without. The side-cutting pliers can be used for connector crimping and heavy-duty cutting.  Many of these today have handles that are cushioned and contoured that also feature an outer surface that is pliable and black, harder inner material for a more comfortable grip.  You do not have to sacrifice durability and tool strength.
  • Nut drivers and screwdrivers—an electrician needs several of these so they can work with different types of applications and fasteners.
  • Wire grippers
  • Measuring devices
  • Labeling machines

Power tools

It does not matter if they are cordless or corded, they are a big part of an electrician’s toolbox.  Today’s tools are more ergonomic, which makes them easier and safer to use.  The cordless power tools are great because many times they are working in areas without electricity so they are more versatile and convenient.  It makes them more productive.  The most used power tools for an electrician are the drills and saws.

  • Power drills—they type of drill that an electrician will need depend on the application. The power that is required in the power drills will depend on the material being drilled.  If it is just fastening work, then you could use a lower-voltage cordless drill.  If you have to drill into concrete, then you would need a hammer/drill, because it can drill holes faster and gives you more impact.
  • Saws—the type of saw an electrician in Jackson would depend on the job they are doing. One of the most popular classes of saws that are used is the reciprocating saw due to its dependability and versatility.  Some of the other saws that are used are the spiral saws, cut-off saws, portable band saws, and hole saws.

These are just some of the many tools that an electrician will use in their job on a daily basis.
