I came back just a few hours ago from Black & Decker University, a facility that is largely used for the training of Dewalt employees and business partners. Along with nearly 3 dozen other bloggers, writers, and magazine editors, I had the opportunity to attend the unveiling of Dewalt’s new 12V MAX lithium ion cordless power tool product […]
Tomorrow, Dewalt will formally announced the launch of their brand new line of 12V Max compact cordless power tools! Although Dewalt is late to the cordless Li-ion 12V power tool party, they’re arriving at full speed with tools that are sure to turn many heads!
Many Lowes stores have recently bundled $10 off $50 coupon cards with select Dewalt screwdriver bit and Pilot Point drill bit sets. Buying these sets will give you a Lowes Project Starter that is good for $10 off a future $50 purchase.
I am sometimes asked to recommend general purpose drill bits that can be purchased locally. Although this condition rules out many of the great brands available at online industrial suppliers, there are still a few decent options out there. By far, my favorite locally-sourced drill bits are Dewalt’s Pilot Point drill bits.

Dewalt’s new magnetic ToughCase is designed to be a highly portable storage case for larger drill bits, saw blades, and other bulky accessories that can be difficult to stow away. Right away, I must tell you that I absolutely love Dewalt’s various tool and accessory storage cases. They’re tough, well-built, and usually have extremely secure […]
If you recall, we reviewed the Craftsman Mitermate a few months ago. Afterwards, the question in everyone’s minds was: how well does it perform compared to an ordinary miter saw? For the answer to this, check out my comparative review over at Popular Mechanics! Craftsman Mitermate vs. Dewalt DW713 Miter Saw via Popular Mechanics Craftsman Mitermate […]

Dewalt recently released a new magnetic ToughCase with a wide open storage compartment that can hold larger drill bits, saw blades, and accessories. These new ToughCases will initially be sold as part of two bit assortments – a 15-piece fastening set, and a 20-piece Impact Ready drilling and driving set.
Some hobbyists and DIYers risk eye injury and occasionally forego wearing safety goggles, with the most common excuse being that they’re uncomfortable to wear. While safety glasses can sometimes be an appropriate alternative, and are certainly better than nothing, there are times when goggles are required. The goggle styles discussed in this mini-review are exceptionally […]
Dewalt recently released a whole slew of new Impact Ready bits and accessories, including twist drill bits and hole saws. We had the opportunity to give these new drill bits a spin, and as you will soon see in this review, we think they’re absolutely fantastic.
While cordless handheld vacuums such as Makita’s new model and the ubiquitous dustbuster are suitable for light duty cleaning or small messes, there may be times when you may need something a bit more robust. For medium duty cleaning tasks, what you’ll want to whip out is a cordless wet/dry vac. Although a traditional corded vacuum would typically be better suited for most […]
Over at Amazon, Dewalt’s DW2169 Impact Ready bit set is currently priced at a ridiculously low $9.88. There are a lot of #2 Phillips bits in the set, but there is also a sufficient selection of other bits and adapters to make the set a great buy. If the price jumps back to its normal range […]
Almost every time I pass a work zone or construction area, I try to take a peek at the tools being used. During my trip to London last July, I caught glimpse of a few city workers preparing to do minor work on a foot bridge. During this sighting, I spotted a [very well used] Dewalt cordless […]
We’re now going to take a closer look at the new impact drill bits and hole saws that were recently released as part of Dewalt’s new line of Impact Ready accessories. As far as we are aware, these are the first drill bits and hole saws ever designed for use with an impact driver.
