Milwaukee has released their new M12 cordless palm nailer. This is the first tool of its kind, and one of Milwaukee’s first to include a new backwards-compatible RedLithium battery. The nailer is designed to take the place of traditional palm nailers, which require air compressors and hoses for power. I’m hoping that Milwaukee’s new cordless hammer […]

We recently received a Senco Fusion angled finish nailer for review, and after charging its 18V battery this morning I felt compelled to fire off a few test nails. Driving in those first nails was extremely satisfying. My first impression was that the Senco did not at all seem short on power, although it did feel a […]
Proper tire inflation provides for optimal performance and fuel economy, but also makes your vehicle safer to drive.

Campbell Hausfeld is introducing several smaller air inflation kits designed for proper inflation of tires and common household items.

A few weeks ago I met up with Brian, a ToolGuyd contributor, and I spotted a Kobalt compressor (model 236005) in his shop. This unit is no longer available for sale at Lowes, but I’ve recently seen quite a few of them for sale on Craigslist and ebay, and carbon-copy units are still available at other retailers. […]
Senco’s new line of cordless Fusion nailers are scheduled to begin shipping to retailers very, very soon. These nailers represent a revolutionary step forward in power fastening technology by combining the power and performance of a pneumatic nailer with the convenience and portability of cordless electric and fuel cell models, without any of the drawbacks.

It took us a little longer than we anticipated, but we now have enough experience with […]

The CAP1516 has a power rating of 1.5HP at peak and 1.1HP while running, outputs 2.7 […]
In addition to their recent nailer and compressor releases, Campbell Hausfeld is now launching two new inflators. It is claimed that their new 12V and 120V inflators will greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to inflate a tire.

Bosch recently launched a complete line of nail guns that are said to be “20% smaller and 10% more powerful.” Bosch’s Full Force Technology helps the tools achieve this by eliminating wasted energy and power to deliver 100% of the driving energy directly to the fastener. While it shouldn’t be a main focus of these nailers, the […]
Many Ridgid power tools are so well designed that I sometimes wonder why they’re not more popular than they are. Ridgid’s 4.5 gallon twin stacked compressor is a great example of how Ridgid’s tools are often underhyped. This compressor had so many great features – from the beautifully well spaced control panel, to the easy-access drain valve, high quality […]
