Machine tools are mechanically guided, whereas hand tools are hand-guided.

So an electric jig-saw is still classed as a hand-tool.

I am not sure how to categorise a Shaper Origin.

Interesting, English is not my native language, so a table saw would still be a hand tool?

My definition would be, a hand tool is moved by the operator.
A machine ist stationary and the part is moved by the operator.
Or the operator is simply watching.
