Making something more suitable to the circumstances, a better fit
A particular kind of saw, intended to cut wood, which may cut curves. I has a very narrow blade stretched between a horseshoe-shaped blade, with a handle extending from one side.
Flat head Screwdriver
A tool used to drive or remove screws or bolts with a straight slot. Can be used as a hand tool, or in bit form fitted into a drill. This tool is not for use in prying or scraping.
The processes, such as cleaning or repairing an object that keep it in good working condition, or prolong the life of the object.
A product that is no longer in use, old-fashioned or out of date. It is important to note that the product can be functional, but it becomes unfashionable or unusable due to product needs. For example, a cassette tape player may be functional, but it becomes unusable because cassette tapes are no longer produced.
A process completed on some electronic devices, usually in computers, intended to cause it to run faster than the speed specified by the manufacturer. The purpose of this process is to improve performance speed, but this process also voids the warranty of the device.
The performance of a device is determined by how it is able to complete a task or process, compared to the known ability of the components.
A tool used to drive or remove screws or bolts with both vertical and horizontal slots, forming a plus sign. Can be used as a hand tool, or in bit form fitted into a drill. This tool is not for use in prying or scraping.
The lifetime of a product can be determined in two ways: the time during which a product can perform its intended function if properly maintained, or the time until a product becomes obsolete, regardless of its functionality or ability to perform the task it was intended to complete.
To restore an object, device or system to proper working order after usage, damage or wear.
In a system, replacement requires a component to be replaced with a component that can perform similar functions, as well or better than the previous component.
Safety equipment includes any object, or device that is employed to prevent harm of any kind to the operator or to other people nearby. An example of safety equipment that protects the operator is a dust mask. A dust collection system protects not only the operator of the tool generating the dust, but all others in the area that could potentially inhale the dust.
A specific type of repair, involving tracing the performance of each component within a system to locate the source of the problem and develop and implement a solution.
