I’m a little late this year, but I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year!
2019 was a very interesting year, and it set the stage for a very exciting 2020, tool-wise. 2020 holds a lot of promise for cordless power tool developments and increased competition.
Here at ToolGuyd I have big plans for the next year of content, and I’m rather excited about that as well. There are a couple of fun projects in the works, or at least they’re projects I’m looking forward to, and I hope you find them fun and interesting too.
I’ll be taking things a little slow and easy this week, but there’s also a lot to do behind the scenes.
As we wrap up 2019, I am especially eager for any requests or feedback about the types of reviews or content you would like to see in 2020.
I’ve received a couple of requests for more knife reviews, more hand tool reviews, and a couple of comparisons. If there’s something you’d like me to consider, please be specific and I’ll add it to my list. I can’t make promises, but I’ll cover what I can.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, I didn’t buy any notable new tools this holiday season. What about you? Did you buy or receive any cool or useful new tools?
I’ve been reading my emails – thank you to everyone who has been writing in! – but it’s taking me far longer than usual to respond.
Have a great week!
Merry Christmas, Stuart!
Hoping you and yours have a joyful day.
Merry Christmas and happy new year!

Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year!
It might be fun to do some “open-ended” posts during the down-time between Christmas and New Years – for example a “tips and tricks” – I know I was surprised to discover that it’s easy to turn the Milwaukee Backpack vacuum off by sliding the pipe past the stop – it hits the switch and turns it off.
Thanks, I’ll have to try that!
Yeah – works best in “floor” mode where you have it standing up – it might be possible to turn it off in backpack mode by bumping up against a doorframe strategically.
Merry Christmas to you and your family……… and a great new year!!!!
Merry Christmas and happy new year’s! As for new things, how about a headlamp shoot out, Milwaukee, defiant, coastal come to mind, the m18 metal cutting circ saw would be a good review too, as would the m18 router which was a newer release.
Anyone know about what the deals are this weekend at HomeDepot? Seen a few covered up boxes yesterday with a Black Friday sale 12/27-12/29 dates.
The ones I saw looked to be leftovers
I bet we’ll see a Packout stack for $199 ??
Happy Holidays Stuart & Ben!
Merry Christmas Everyone
Merry Christmas and happy new year!
Happy Boxing Day for those for whom that is part of their tradition.
The last few days were a bit ecumenical for me. We had some Chanukah Latkes on Monday night with a take-out supper – as my wife finished baking Christmas cookies for our neighbors and church. On Tuesday – we went to a restaurant for a “7-Fishes Christmas Eve dinner. Then we spent a quite Christmas at home with the family opening presents and waiting on the turkey to roast. Now, today I’m reflecting on the blessings that the past year has brought to me and my family while looking forward to the New Year .
As we approach that new year, I wish good fortune and health to you (Stuart) – your family and team and to all your readers.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to you! I’m glad 2019 included finding this site. 🙂
Merry Christmas and Happy New year to you and all toolguyd fans. Looking forward to what the new year has in store for us. I have a good enough arsenal of tools now (many thanks to this website) so this new year I’m planning to really get stuff done with our property and house. With very young kids it will be a bit of a challenge but getting them involved early should be fun!!!
Merry Christmas! Thank you for the great content and website. I just discovered it recently and am blown away. Cheers from Miami Fl. wp.
Merry Christmas to everyone in the Toolguyd family.
Happy Chanukkah or Kwanzah as appropriate.
Please keep up the good work that you do.
A very warm greeting for New Year.
Thank you toolguyd for a whole year of great content. I love seeing all the deal posts through out the holidays. What’s the one tool in 2019 most memorable to you?
