Macros_the_Black has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
Tools Picture Dictionary / Visual Tools Guide

About a year ago (9th Apr 2008), in the "please stop using the Dremel as a saw... " thread, Oclocker had the idea of creating a "pictorial guide" of tools . I thought this was a great idea but was too lazy at the time to make one. I do realize this is going to take a lot of time, but I'd really like to see such a guide / dictionary here on the forums, so here goes:

First, a quick list of the Categories found below:
Clamps and Vises
Measuring
Miscellaneous
Planers
Sanders
Saws
Threads

[DISCLAIMER]
I'm not a tools guru of any kind so feel free to improve on or correct any mistakes in the text. To make this dictionary a reality I will need your help!
[/DISCLAIMER]

Feel free to suggest changes in the layout/structure!
As of now, the tags are: "tools" and "dictionary". More suggestions are welcome!
I would also greatly appreciate any submissions of suitable tool images, texts, names and links!! (It takes a lot of time hunting down good images and links )

My sincere gratitude goes out to all of you who has contributed to this dictionary so far!!!!! With no further ado I give you..
The Wall of Honour! (The nicks are presented in order of appearance)
Code:
            Cheapskate         Dark~3nergy          Langer         notatoad
            Bindibadgi       overdosedelusion      The_Beast      jhanlon303
             Delphium           [OODBALL]          ModMinded        THP Dan
           Blooddrunken
Q: Ok, I would like to submit images to the dictionary, what do I do?

A: Post a reply containing the following:
1) A link to the original full size image, and the name of the tool. Remember, the tool in the picture must be easily recognizable as you scroll down the thread! (Try finding a tool in this dictionary only by looking at the pics.) Preferably, the pic should have single color background and a easy to read silhouette. Also, it's good if the original pic is large enough to make it "zoom-able".
2) [Optional] A 150 pixel tall thumbnail. <--- [Yes please, saves some time 'photoshopping'.]
3) [Optional] A short text describing the tool.
4) [Optional] One or more useful links.
5) [Optional] Accurate names of the tool in other languages.


Planned future additions: (need to find images n stuff for these)
(3d printer)
Bending press
Blow torch
Drill bits
Lasercutter (CNC)
Laser level
Oven
Paint station
Pliers
Plotter
(Powder coating)
Rotary sander
Random orbital sander
Sanding drum
Smelter
Storage cabinet
Time-serts
Water jet cutter (CNC)
Welding + brazing equipment
Wrenches
... feel free to suggest more!


Clamps and Vises


C-clamp

Clamps stuff. Usually smaller than their F-clamp siblings.


Corner clamp
Hörntving

Holds pieces at an angle to each other. 90 degree and adjustable types depicted.


Drill press clamp

Clamps your pieces to the drill press / mill table while you drill.


F-clamp
Skruvtving

Clamps stuff. Usually larger than their C-clamp siblings.


Quick grip clamp
Enhandstving

Great for clamping stuff together when you only have one hand free. If you need the stuff really tightly clamped, add F-clamps after the quick clamps (some (all?) quick clamps can't tighten their grip in small enough increments).


Spring (grip) clamp
Fjädertving

Quick and easy clamping. ^_^


Vise (bench vise)
Skruvstycke

Holds or clamps a work piece while you work on it. Is usually bolted to a work bench.


Vise (drill press vise)
Borrskruvstycke

Holds or clamps a work piece while you drill into it. Is usually bolted/clamped to the table of a drill press.


Vise (machine vise)
Maskinskruvstycke

You usually find this kind of vises on mills (CNC). Holds or clamps a work piece while the machine works on it.


Vise grip (standard)

Holds stuff together. Used when welding for example.


Vise grip (C style)

Holds stuff together. Used when welding for example.


Vise grip (sheetmetal)

Holds stuff together. Used when welding for example.



Measuring


Calipers
Skjutmått, Schieblehre

Very handy tool for precise measurements! Can do outer, inner and depth measurements. Comes in analog (linear scale and dial scale) and digital versions. Every self respecting modder should have one, imho.


Square
Vinkelhake

Squares are very useful when drawing/scribing lines or aligning work pieces at 90° angles. Also useful for checking the perpendicularity of your cuts/work. The combination square (pic #2) also has a fixed 45° angle and the option of protractor (adjustable angle thingy in the middle) for any odd angle you need or want to measure. It also has the option of a centre square which helps you find the centre of any square or round object.


Steel ruler
Stållinjal

Use it to measure, draw/scribe straight lines or as a guide when cutting with a hobby knife. Tip: If the ruler doesn't have cork on the flip side to prevent it from sliding, you can put some electricians adhesive tape on it to create a rubber surface with higher friction.



Miscellaneous


Air compressor
Kompressor

Drives pneumatic tools like air-brushes, grinders, sanders, hack saws, etc. Great for blowing away dust. Just make sure the air supplied is oil free, this goes for air brushing as well!


Angle grinder
Úhlová bruska, Winkelschleifer, Disqueuse, Smerigliatrice angolare, Haakse slijper, Vinkelsliper, Szlifierka kątowa, Rebarbadora, Kulmahiomakone, Vinkelslip

Use with a cutting disk (aka zip disk) to cut through thick metal quickly or with a grinding disk to grind through thick metal. very rough tool, gives really messy edges, but easy to use and quick.


Bending brake
Plåtbock, Kantbank

Used for bending sheet metal.


Bench grinder
Bänkslip

Makes lots of pretty sparks ¤_¤


Channel lock
Polygrip

For gripping round things like pipes.


Circle cutter
Kreisschneider

Put it in a drill press to make perfect holes.


Compressed Air

Can be found here
Great for cleaning dust from fans / heat sinks / radiators / grills.


Dremel (multi-tool)

Great tool for those small jobs. Not the best tool for long straight cuts though.
Please stop using the Dremel as a saw... @ Bit-Tech forums
Langer's Dremel Cutting Process @ Bit-Tech forums


Drill
Bohrmaschine, Borrmaskin, Taladradora, Perceuse, Trapano, Boormachine, Wiertarka, Furadeira

Good for making holes and drilling out rivets with.


Drill press
Pelarborr, Standbohrmaschine

Great for making precision holes with.


File
Fil, Feile, Lima, Lime, Vijl, Pilnik

Always use a file to clean up your cuts!


Hammer
Hammare, Martillo, Vasara, Marteau, Hamar, Martello, Młotek, Martelo

The arch nemesis of your thumb. Not only a great tool for stress release, but it also *makes* things fit... (Cheapskate style)


Heat gun
Värmepistol, Wärmepistole

This tool can be used for shrinking heat shrink insulation/wrap/tubing or bending plastic (acrylic) sheets.


Hole saw
Hålsåg, Lochsäge

Put in a drill press and use to cut perfect circles. buy one mandrel and multiple saws of different sizes.


Hot glue gun
Limpistol, Heißklebepistole

Great for those quick jobs where the glue joint doesn't have to be super strong and wont be seen (hot glue can be messy).


Lathe
Svarv, Drehbank

Is used to create objects which has symmetry about an axis of rotation. Like cylindrical/conical case feet for example.


Mill
Fräs, Fräse

Can be used as a drill press, but also to cut out parts from metal chunks (water blocks). Is usually equipped with an X-Y-table.


Needle file
Nålfil, Nagelfeile

Smaller version of the file. Great for filing details (like text/logo cutouts).


Nibbler

Great for making small square holes in sheet material. Do not use for long cuts, they will get jagged and your under arm and hand will be sore from the effort!


Nibbler (electrical)

This is quite a different tool compared to the manual nibbler. This one is better for making long cuts in sheet metal.


Paint Gun (power coating)

Used to paint metals... unsure about plastics or glass.


Riveter + rivet
Popnitstång + popnit, (pop)nietzange + (pop)niete

Install pop rivets to securely and tightly fasten two flat surfaces.


Router
Handöverfräs, fräs, Oberfräse

Macros_the_Black has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
Step drill / Unibit drill
Stegborr, Stufenbohrer

Excellent for making different sized holes in sheet metal, w/o having to change drill bit. It can also chamfer the edge of the hole a bit for you.


Tin snips / Aviation snips
Plåtsax

For cutting sheet metal. There are three basic types; straight (usually yellow), left (usually red) and right (usually green) cutting. The left and right types does straight cuts as well.



Planers


Hand / Power planer
Hyvel / Elhyvel

Used for producing smooth flat surfaces on wood.


Jointer
Rikthyvel

Squares the edge of a piece of rough lumber/board, prior to joining them edge-to-edge to produce wider boards for example.
How Is a Jointer Used in Woodworking? @ WiseGeek.com


Thickness planer
Planhyvel

Trims a piece of wood to an even thickness.



Sanders


Belt sander (hand held)
Bandslip, Bandschleifer

Use it when you want to sand away a lot of material quickly.


Belt/Disc sander
Band/skivslip

Good for sanding pieces at precise angles or for shaping convex edges (disc).


Disc sander
Skivslip

Good for sanding pieces at precise angles or for shaping convex pieces.


Sander
Slipmaskin

Use it to sand your stuff. Random orbital and "mouse" type depicted.


Vertical Belt Sander
Vertikal bandslip

They come in handy for cleaning up edges that you have just cut.



Saws


Bandsaw
Bandsåg

Good for making straight cuts. There are both "wood / sheet" and "metal bar" cutting types.


Circular saw
Cirkelsåg

Great for cutting long straight cuts in board materials (like chipboard, mdf, ...)


Coping saw
Figursåg

Use it for cutting intricate external designs, and some not-too-hard-to-reach internal ones (this is a manual equivalent of the scroll saw).


Fret saw
Lövsåg, Laubsäge

Use it for cutting intricate internal design (this is a manual equivalent of the scroll saw).


Hack saw
Bågfil

Use it to cut metal manually.


Jigsaw / Jig-saw
Sticksåg, Stichsäge

A very good tool for cutting stuffs ... ;P
Jigsaw @ wikipedia.org
Getting Jiggy @ extremehowto.com
20 Helpful JIG SAW Tips PDF


Mitre saw
Geringssåg, Kappsäge / Gehrungssäge

Used when cutting relatively narrow stuffs at precise angles ...
Mitre saw @ wikipedia.org


Scroll saw / (fret saw)
Figursåg, Bandsäge / Dekupiersäge

Weapon of choice when cutting out intricate designs...
Operating the Scroll saw instructional videos


Tile saw
Kakelsåg

Useful tool for cutting any thickness of plexi/acrylic. Cheapskate recommends the table top kind (pic #3): "can cut whole sheets or do small cuts, and can't sag like the big saw."
More stuff Cheap said about cutting with a tile saw @ This thread



Table saw
Bordssåg




Threads


Tap and die set
Gängsats

Contains tools for cutting threads in different sized holes and on rods.


Die
Gängsnitt

Cuts threads on cylinders/rods. Can also sometimes help save a screw with damaged threads (if not to severe).


Die holder / Die stock
Gängkloppa

Holds the thread die when you cut threads on a rod/cylinder.


Helicoil thread insert
Insatsgänga

Great for repairing damaged threads in soft materials like aluminium or plastics. Can also be inserted from scratch to make the threads stronger. This is useful when the screws are screwed in and out many times. (For other type of thread insert, see "Thread inserts" below)


Tap
Gängtapp, Gewindeschneider

Cuts threads in holes.
Tap drill sizes @ CuriousInventor.com


Tap wrench holder
Svängjärn

Holds the thread tap while you tap a hole. I usually drill a straight pilot hole through a piece of wood to help me get the thread started straight with the holder, then I back up, remove the wood guide, screw the thread tap in with my fingers only, and last I use the holder to cut to full depth. /Macros


Tap wrench (ratcheting)
Gängtappshållare ?

Holds the thread tap while you tap a hole. Easier to use than the plain tap holder (above).


Tap wrench aligner

Holds the thread tap straight while you tap a hole. Perfect straight threads every time (if you believe the sales pitch).


Thread inserts
Insatsgänga

Great for making stronger threads in softer materials like plastics. Use in screw holes where the screws are going to be unscrewed many times (like on case side panels on an all plexi case).

@Bindibadgi: Goodie!

@ALL:
Got a new idea, what do you think?
What if we included names for the tools in other languages as well? Perhaps in smaller font under the english name. This way you can search the thread for the name of the tool in your native language, and if it's in the dictionary you save some time.
Something like this (though, with a bit more serious text and links):

Hammer
Hammare, Martillo, Vasara, Marteau, Hamar, Martello, Młotek, Martelo <--------------------- What do you think about this?

The arch nemesis of your thumb. Not only a great tool for stress release, but it also *makes* things fit... (Cheapskate style)

I've heard that with tile saws it's good to use a dull blade for cutting acrylic. True?

For thin aluminum(1/8") or any plastic I use a cordless drill if I can. For thicker aluminum/steel you really have to take your time doing half turn then 1/4 turn back etc.. With plenty of lubricant.
