Saws

Saws are available according to the purpose in a wide variety of types. Thus, the panel saw is used for cutting timber. In order to cut plasterboards, a drywall saw is essential, which is characterized by a short, rigid blade.

Wrenches

The pipe wrench is an indispensable tool for the do-it-yourselfer as well as for the professional. The main use is for working on pipes and coupling sleeves. Since pipe wrenches have an adjustable joint and a different sized jaw width, it is ideally suited for sanitary work. It's so easy: set the wrench according to the size of the pipe and attach it to the point to be repaired and turn it. Our tip: Do not apply to much pressure against the pipe to prevent deformation or damage on the pipe. Pipe wrenches are available in a few different versions:
