When working on a new project, it’s always helpful to have advice from an expert—and expertise is what we’re all about at The Tool Cabin in Tulsa, OK. We’re here to answer some of the most commonly asked questions about tool parts, tool selections, and locating exactly what you need, when you need it, for your particular project.
Here’s some of the most handy advice we have to offer at The Tool Cabin.
Should You Replace The Part Or The Tool?
Chances are, whether you admit it or not, you have favorite tools for certain types of jobs. Another tool, while similar, simply wouldn’t be the same. Unfortunately, when your favorite tool suffers an inevitable malfunction, this leads to our first commonly asked question: Are you better off replacing an individual, broken part, or should you replace the defunct tool in its entirety?
From a financial perspective, replacing a single part is less expensive than buying a whole new tool. This can make a profound difference if you’re operating on a strict budget.
On the other hand, depending on how long and how much you’ve been using your favorite tools, they might have reduced in efficacy overall, even if only one part is obviously malfunctioning. Replacing the entire tool might be the pricier option, but there’s no substitute for consistent, quality output from the tools you trust.
In the end, only you can determine the demands of your individual budget and construction needs. Our Tulsa team is nevertheless here to help and answer any questions you might have. We provide both tool parts and complete tools, and our website allows you to search for specific parts by model number!
Finding the tools you need is easier than ever through our robust part search system, which quickly, conveniently identifies the parts you need, whether they’re currently available, and when they’re likely to become available again.
In addition, our revolutionary tool tracking system is rolling out soon to provide the exact same service for full-blown tools.
Should You Buy A New Or Used Part?
Let’s say you’ve decided to replace an individual part rather than an entire tool. This leads to our second frequently asked question: Should you buy a new part, or a used one?
More than anything else, this question depends on how used the “used part” actually is. At The Tool Cabin in Tulsa, we diligently catalogue all available details about our tools and parts, so you’ll never be caught by surprise after buying. We’re happy to advise on which category of part would be most effective with your particular tool—and if a used part is an option, it’s an excellent way to trim your expenses!
Should You Repair Or Replace Broken Parts?
Buying a new versus a used part is a major decision, but it’s also possible to eschew purchasing tool parts altogether. Repairs are another option that stands in staunch opposition to replacement. Which should you choose?
The Tool Cabin helps our customers to contact tools’ original manufacturers directly to determine whether they’re still under warranty and what support they’re entitled to in case of problems. You might be pleasantly surprised to discover that you not only don’t have to replace a broken tool part, but it can be repaired for free under the tool’s current warranty.
