Home improvement projects can beautify your home and increase its resale value. One of the first steps in making your home a better place to be is to clear out the junk and odds-and-ends from your shed.

Keep reading to learn about the advantages of renting hauling equipment from A Tool Shed Equipment Rentals.

Tool Rentals: How to Use an Airless Spray Paint Gun

An airless spray paint gun can make your big painting projects a breeze, as long as you know how to use it properly. A quality equipment rental company can provide you with the right gun for your job. Watch this video to learn the basics of how to use an airless spray paint gun.

When you are preparing to use an airless spray paint gun, make sure you have enough electricity to power the machine. There are a few steps you must take before you start painting to ensure that the gun will function properly. You must tighten the air filter to ensure that the line is clear. You should also adjust the pressure of the spray so that the paint does not splash back when it makes contact with its surface.

Rent Tools: Your Guide to Essential Plumbing Equipment

Toilet Snake

Whether you rent or own your home, chances are you’ve had to deal with plumbing issues like a clogged drain or an overflowing sink. Unfortunately, not every plumbing problem can be solved with a plunger or wrench. You don’t necessarily need to purchase a full tool kit for a plumbing project; instead, an equipment rental service can get you the tools you need to complete the job quickly. Keep reading to learn more about essential plumbing equipment to rent.

Pressure Testing Gauge If you have noticed that the water pressure in your house is lower than normal, a leak is a possible cause. Renting a pressure testing gauge from an equipment rental company is an inexpensive way to test the pressure of your pipes by yourself.

Toilet Snake For clogged toilets and drains, a snake is a handy piece of equipment to have at your disposal. This long cable makes it easy for you to clear clogged drains , and is simple to use. When you have a clogged or slow-running drain, contact a tool rental facility to try your hand at using a toilet snake.

Pipe Cutter For professional plumbers or experienced do-it-yourselfers, a pipe cutter is an indispensable tool for bigger plumbing projects. Pipes can leak or burst, and sometimes the only way to fix the problem is to install new sections of pipe. Rent a pipe cutter to cut custom lengths and sizes of new pipe. You may also need a pipe-cutting vise to make the job easier.

Sewer Jetter For major clogs and backups that a snake just can’t handle, a sewer jetter is a powerful solution. Sewer jetters use water pressure to remove clogs, debris, soap scum, and other substances that gunk up pipes. This can be a costly plumbing tool to purchase, so consider renting a sewer jetter the next time you have stubborn clogs in your home.

You don’t have to have your own collection of plumbing tools to get the job done. Contact A Tool Shed Equipment Rentals at (831) 359-4769 for all of your tool rental needs, or visit one of our six convenient locations across Northern California for an in-person look today.

Tool Rentals: Table Saw Safety

Table Saw

While carpentry is a satisfying and useful hobby, it can be risky if you don’t adhere to safety standards and use precaution while using your carpentry tools . This is especially true with table saws. Table saws are incredibly handy, but you can seriously injure yourself if you aren’t careful. Here’s what you need to know about table saw safety:

Place an outfeed table behind the saw as an added safety measure. As you feed your material through the table saw, the material will land on the outfeed table, which will prevent you from reaching behind the saw to grab your material before it falls to the floor. Table saw accidents commonly occur when the user puts his or her hand behind the saw in order to keep the material from falling. This can result in a very serious injury.

Be careful where you stand while using the saw. There always a risk of the saw kicking the material back at you, so be sure to stand to the side of the saw, not directly in front of it.

Use push sticks and push pads when you operate your table saw. If you’re planning to cut material that is less than three inches in width or length, use a push stick in order to propel the material through the saw.

Wear proper clothing and safety accessories. Wear either a short-sleeved shirt or make sure your sleeves are rolled up tightly—you want to avoid getting your sleeve caught in the table saw. Do not wear jewelry while operating the table saw. Additionally, wear safety goggles and ear protectors while you’re running the table saw in order to protect your sight and hearing.

Always keep the safety guard in place on your table saw. This is perhaps the most important table saw safety precaution.
