Bosch’s PS41-2A 12V pocket impact driver has just started popping up at online retailers. This update to Bosch’s PS40 impact driver is not as huge of a step forward compared to PS21 Pocket Driver and PS31 Compact Corded Drill, but it’s still quite an improvement. As we mentioned in our sneak peak a few months […]
HomeFixated has confirmed what we had been hoping for – after a long wait, Bosch and Sortimo’s joint tool storage products will finally be making their way to the USA! Sortimo’s L-Boxx tool storage system looks like it could rival Festool’s Systainer line in terms of jobsite versatility and flexibility, and it will be interesting to see […]
Coptool (of Ohio Power Tool) just broke the news that Bosch will soon be releasing a new woodworking router spindle (MRC23EVSK), complete with redesigned plunge and fixed bases. Bosch has earned themselves a solid reputation amongst woodworkers with their current 1617 series routers. From the looks of it, Bosch outdid themselves and their new feature-rich routers […]
Judging by the attention it’s been receiving lately, Bosch’s new GCM12SD Axial-Glide sliding dual-bevel miter saw must have been the crown jewel of their media event. Bosch’s engineers managed to increase the work capacity of this miter saw while shrinking its footprint, making it a compact high-performance monster of a saw.
Dremel’s new 8200 cordless rotary tool is powered by a brand new 12V-max Li-ion battery, making it the fastest and most powerful cordless tool of its kind. The 8200 is not exactly compact, but its battery allows it to be used for many jobs where a corded tool would be inconvenient or impossible to use. We are avid fans […]
A few weeks ago, we talked about Bosch’s new Power Box 360 music/power center, and how it claims to “re-define” jobsite sound. The new Power Box 360 features four speakers and a subwoofer, modern media connectivity options, and quite a few snazzy features. While that sounds great on paper, how does the Power Box 360 […]
In addition to the upcoming Dremel Trio, Dremel will soon be releasing a cordless version of their Multi-Max oscillating multi-tool. This will be the very first cordless tool under the Dremel brand that is not a rotary tool. Dremel highlights that with the new 12V Max Lithium Ion batteries first introduced with their 8200 cordless rotary tool, the cordless Multi-Max […]

Steve from over at the ShopNGarage blog & forum recently reviewed Milwaukee’s M12 cordless drill and driver. The review was overwhelmingly positive, confirming our expectation that the M12 3/8″ drill is a very solid performer. As we also noticed in our own review of Milwaukee’s similarly featured 3/8″ right angle drill, Steve mentions that the drill’s chuck felt […]
In its quest to provide just about any bit and burr hobbyists, crafters, and pros may ever need, Dremel introduced new glass cutting drill bits. These bits are available in 1/8″ and 1/4″ sizes and can be used to cut flat or contoured glass, and ceramic wall tile.
ToolSnob’s Doug Mahoney wrote a thorough review on Ridgid’s JobMax tool system over at PopMech. He compared the performance of the various tool heads against dedicated compact cordless tools, and concluded that while not perfect the JobMax held up fairly well. You can check out the full comparative review at PopMech. Browse or Buy Ridgid […]
Over at Woodcraft, this Pinnacle (Woodpeckers) drill press table is on sale for $90, and since it’s over $25, it ships for free. The 16″ x 23″ x 1″ table is made from MDF with a “Microdot” laminate, and includes laser-engraved double T slot fences. What I like most about this drill press table is that […]
Rockwell’s new 12-volt H3 is a cordless rotary hammer drill with an SDS Plus quick chuck. Somehow, Rockwell managed to pack quite a bit of power into a compact and lightweight tool. The drill’s 3-in-1 quick change chuck can be used to equip the tool as a rotary hammer drill, conventional 3-jaw drill, or power screwdriver.
Home Depot is having a “Spring Cyber Monday” online-only sale today. As part of their sale, Home Depot is selling Ryobi’s Auto Hammer for an obscenely low $20. We reviewed the Auto Hammer a few months ago, and had some mixed feelings about. At $20 (plus shipping), the Auto Hammer now costs less than a […]
Additional details and specifications about the Dremel Tri 6800 multi-purpose spiral saw we first mentioned last month have started to surface. If our own feelings are any indication, the Trio’s September 2010 release will be highly anticipated.
