Feel Like You Can’t Do DIY Projects Anymore? Check Out These 3 Power Tools

Dremel 7300-N/5 4.8V MiniMite Cordless Rotary Tool

As you age, it can be harder to tackle the home projects you once did without a second thought. That said, just because they appear harder doesn’t mean they’re impossible to do. And, luckily, with age comes experience; you know how to get a job done faster and more efficiently than any 20-year- old would — you just need the tools to do it right. Here are three of the best power tools you can use to turn your home project dreams into reality. Makita DT01W 12V Max Lithium-Ion Cordless Impact Driver Drill Previous drill models were built out of hard plastic and steel, which made them heavy, hard to maneuver, and difficult to grip. However, Makita drills are designed with soft grip handles, making them easier to use if you have arthritis or other joint conditions. In addition, they weigh only 2 pounds, so they’re safe and easy to handle in the tightest of spaces. That said, don’t let the size fool you: This drill can deliver 800 pounds of maximum torque, making it an ideal drill for your heavy-duty projects.

Getting the amount of precision needed for smaller projects like engraving, polishing, and finish work with older rotary tools is near impossible. Fortunately, this handy power tool is perfect for polishing, cutting small-scale copper piping, engraving, or even spot- grinding a nasty weld. It also weighs only 1.1 pounds, so it’s perfect for intricate engravings or polishing your favorite set of wheels. For bigger DIY projects, it might not be realistic for you to work with the heavy, corded, and bulky saws that you used to use. When it comes to home renovations or those bigger DIY projects, there is nothing better than this BLACK+DECKER saw. With a tool-free depth of cut and easy-to-use bevel, it’s so much easier to get the type of cut you need. At 6.1 pounds, it’s painless to manage and less risky when you need to stretch to get a longer cut. BLACK+DECKER 20V MAX 5-1/2-Inch Circular Saw

Understanding Medicare is notoriously difficult, but before you can figure out the supplements and other plans that might benefit you, you really need to understand how this confusing system works. When it comes to Medicare plans, there are 10 possible supplement plans insurers can offer. Medicare Advantage, or Part C, plans sometimes come with Part D prescription drugs included, but not always. Depending on your area, you may have up to 40 Part C plans to choose from, and the same goes for Part D plans. To say it’s convoluted would be the understatement of the year.
