    What do you use this for?


    Would you be so kind to tell me the difference between the use of "to" and "for" in the following sentences:

    I normally use this pencil to draw pictures.
    I normally use this pencil for drawing pictures.

    I use this knife to cut meat.
    I use this knife for cutting meat.

    I use this camera to take photos.
    I use this camera for taking photos.

    Thanks for your help
