Cc’s - Engine displacement is the volume  swept by all the pistons inside the cylinders of an internal combustion engine

Carbide:
A hard material made of compacted binary compounds of carbon and heavy metals, used, used to make tools that cut metal.


Carbon Brushes: A part of a motor which conducts current between stationary wires and moving parts.

Carburettor: A device on the intake of a petrol motor to supply to the motor the correct amount of fuel and air, at the correct ratio.

Central height adjust
: This a single lever that operates all the wheels at the same time to give even elevation of the lawnmower deck.

CFM: Cubic Feet per Minute.  A measure of the usage of air from an air compressor.  The higher this number is on a tool, the more frequently the compressor will need to run to keep the tool going.

Chain bar: The thin bar on a chain saw which guides and supports the cutting chain.

Chain Sprocket: The main chain drive which drives the chain around the bar on a chain saw

Chisel: A wood chisel is used for cleanly paring out small bits of stock.

Chisel point:
A point on staples that makes the legs sink in straight as a staple is driven into material.

Choke: A device to change the ratio of fuel and air into a petrol motor. Used to assist in initial starting of a petrol motor.

Chuck:
The part of the drill which holds bits into place.  They come in 2 types: Keyless; a chuck which does not require a tool to change the bits, and Keyed; a chuck which does require a tool to change the bit.

Circular Saw:
A handheld powertool used for ripping and cross-cutting hardwoods, softwoods and non-wood materials such as steel, plastic, and concrete.

Clamp: A restraining device used to hold a workpiece in place while you work.

Claw Hammer:
The most basic tool in woodworking; used for driving and removing nails from stock.

Clipped Head: Nails collated in 28 degree or 30-33 degree strips which have a notch in the head that allows for each individual nail to be driven efficiently, despite the angle and tightness of the collation.  This notch makes little practical differences in holding power.

Clutch: A device to engage and disengage the drive from a motor or gear box. Clutch can be manually operated or speed activated or in some cases pressure activated.

Collated: Fasteners which are bound together for use in automatic firing mechanisms.  All staples are collated, but only specific nails and screws are collated.

Compound Mitre cut: A compound mitre cut using a mitre saw involves using a mitre angle and a bevel angle at the same time. It is used in making picture frames, to cut mouldings, making boxes with sloping sides and for roof framing.

Compound Mitre Saw:
A table mounted saw that allows for cross-cutting precise compound angles on workpieces (soft or hardwoods).

CREE:
Cree is leading the LED lighting revolution and making energy-wasting traditional lighting technologies obsolete through the use of energy-efficient, environmentally friendly LED lighting. Cree is a market-leading innovator of lighting-class LEDs, LED lighting, and semiconductor solutions for wireless and power applications.

Cross cut:
A crosscut using a mitre saw is made by cutting across the grain of the workpiece. A 90º crosscut is made with the mitre table set at 0°.  Mitre crosscuts are made with the table set at some angle other than zero.

Crown: The crown of a staple is the top portion which connects the legs.  This piece is typically what you can see once the staple has been fastened.

Current:
The flow of electrons through a conductor.  Measure in Amperes.
