Equipements adaptables

An attachment is a device without a built-in motor. It is attached to a power tool to extend its range of possible applications. The following is a selection of possible attachments:

- circular sawing attachment
- hammer drilling attachment
- screwdriving attachment
- tapping attachment
- jigsaw attachment
- angular gearing for drills
- angular gearing for screwdrivers and wrenches
- angle grinding attachment
- belt sanding attachment

The use of attachments is always a compromise solution. In relation to work progress, quality and handling, attachments are always inferior to machines especially developed for the purpose in question. For this reason, attachments have not become accepted as permanent solutions.
