Abrasives smooth, finish, grind, or mold workpieces by repeated friction between the abrasive material and the workpiece surface area. Abrasives come in a wide range of shapes and sizes with a choice between natural or synthetic materials. Natural abrasives are comprised of organic minerals like sand, calcium carbonate, and pumice. Synthetic abrasives are made from manufactured materials like zirconia alumina, ceramic, and silicon carbide. Common types of abrasives include flap wheels, honing stones, sanding discs, and finishing discs. Choosing the right abrasive depends on the the desired finish, shape, and cut of the workpiece. Abrasives are assigned a grit size that follows national and international standards for the size of the embedded particles. Abrasives with smaller grit sizes erode surfaces faster, cut deeper, and produce a coarser finish because the particle sizes are larger. Larger grit sizes produce a smoother finish because the abrasive particles are smaller. Aluminum oxide is the most common grain of abrasive material and is used for general-purpose abrading on metal and wood. Zirconia alumina is suitable for more aggressive stock removal on metal and wood.

Adhesives, sealants, and tape cover a wide range of products used for bonding, sealing, attaching, and mounting applications. Epoxies are two-component adhesives that consist of a resin and a hardener and require mixing prior to application. Epoxies offer superior strength and resistance to abrasion. Cyanoacrylates, better known by brand names like Krazy Glue or Super Glue, are low-viscosity structural adhesives that set quickly. For non-industrial and non-structural use, pressure-sensitive adhesives are suitable. These types of adhesives don’t require liquid or heat for joining; rather, they bond to substrates through application of light pressure. Examples include a wide range of tape and rubber adhesives. Sealants are commonly used to provide a barrier against moisture, air, and gas. Examples include putties, pipe thread sealants, and silicone sealants. Sealants offer durability and flexibility and are commonly used in and around plumbing fixtures in bathrooms and kitchens.

Cutting tools, also referred to as cutters, are tools designed to remove workpiece material—typically metal—using one or more cutting edges. They are either single-point tools, such as turning and boring tools, or multi-point tools, like end mills and drill bits. As the name suggests, single-point tools have one cutting edge, or chip-producing element. These tools are commonly used in lathes to perform planing and shaping operations. Tool bits are examples of single-point tools. Multi-point tools have more than one cutting edge. These tools are used in holemaking and milling operations.
Tool geometry and cutter material are arguably the most important features of cutting tools and should be considered based on the tool’s specific task and the material being cut. The tool’s cutting edge must be harder than the workpiece material, it should be able to reasonably withstand high temperatures, and it should have an acceptable level of wear resistance. These three factors should be considered in order to achieve maximum productivity, extended tool life, and monetary savings. High speed steel is a standard cutter material because of its relative low cost in addition to toughness and hardness factors.
Other important characteristics of cutting tools are the number and design of the tool’s flutes and whether the tool is designed for linear or rotary motion. Linear tools include broaches, while countersinks and counterbores are examples of rotary cutting tools.

As the name suggests, hand tools are operated by hand and don’t require electric power. These tools are ideal for low-production fastening, positioning, finishing, and driving applications and can easily be transported to jobsites. Common examples of hand tools include screwdrivers, clamps, knives, hammers, and wrenches.
Power tools require electricity to operate. These tools are used in more heavy-duty applications where speed is a priority, or when working with larger workpieces. Common examples of power tools include power saws, nail guns, power sanders and routers, power drills, and hammer drills.
