Power Tools for a Powerful CTE Classroom
From woodworking and industrial technology to Fab Lab and Makerspace tools, a robust CTE program will offer students a variety of portable power tools to build their projects.
Saws, routers, grinders, sanders, drills, mortisers, planers, jointers, and other woodworking tools will all be useful in a variety of projects both big and small. Whether students are building a simple wall shelf or a detailed kitchen table and chairs set, ensuring they have the right tools is the key to their success.
Traditional woodworking tools can also be used as Fab Lab and Makerspace tools. Their adaptability makes them a versatile choice for any school program, and helps manage the yearly budget. Instead of buying a specific power tool for each classroom, choose one functional model and share it between classes. As funding increases, additional or more varied tools can be purchased.
Keep it Simple with Woodworking Tool Kits
Building out a classroom in a brand new school, or overhauling an existing one, can feel overwhelming with the amount of items needed. To make things easier, we offer a variety of woodworking tool kits to get you started.
Bring a few new items together in a carpenter tools set and ensure consistent branding and battery usage. These kits often include some combination of drill/driver, reciprocating saw, impact driver, circular saw, worklight, grinder, sander, and more. Plus, they’re likely to include the correct batteries and charger, all in one convenient carrying case.
For a larger upgrade, try a woodworking tool cabinet. These can vary depending on the size you need or how many students are in each section. They can include a variety of tools, if you like, or you can order just the cabinet. You can even order just the tools if you already have a good woodworking tool storage system and just need a little bit of everything to fill it out.
Don’t Forget the Power Tool Accessories!
With hundreds of students using the same portable power tools, you’ll need to make sure your accessories are always well-stocked. Set up a routine to order saw blades, drill bits, batteries, and other woodworking supplies regularly. You don’t want to run out of necessary items for completing projects, and you also don’t want students to be using old, worn out equipment or they risk getting injured in class. Ask us about setting up recurring orders so you don’t have to worry about remembering before you run out of supplies!
