Having the right power tool accessories makes quick work of any project. The challenge is figuring out which power tool accessories are essential for various projects and which are just nice to have as part of your power tools collection. Keep your power tool accessories simple and only buy what you know that you will use regularly, such as blades, drill bits, and sanding pads. Be sure to have one or two extra power tool batteries or a charger to keep all power tools charged and ready to use.
There may be times that specialized power tool accessories, such as router bits, a rotary tool, saw blades or jigsaw blades, are necessary for a particular project. Look for special prices or sales on those items or consider borrowing power tools parts from a neighbor or friend. Also look for used power tools and accessories for that one-off type of project. Other suggestions to keep your power tools accessories budget under control is to rent accessories from a tool rental store.
