Bosch has recently added yet another tool, the PS70-2A metal shear, to its 12V Max line of lithium-ion powered compact cordless tools.

Dremel has released a new rotary tool, the 4000, and it sure looks sweeeeeeeeet! This new rotary tool model is replacing Dremel’s current top-line model, the 400 series XPR. The new 4000 series rotary tool features a new slimmer body, and while it includes many of the features that we have come to expect from Dremel’s highest […]

Stop wasting time searching for the right socket.” We cannot […]
You may want to take a look at Lowes’ October Shop Class, which offers instruction on how to build and finish a traditional storage chest. You can view project videos for the basic construction of the chest immediately, and the videos concerning the finishing steps will split into two videos – one will be available Tuesday, and the […]
Technically, the above pictured “Snap-on” 75W “cordless” “heavy duty” drop work light is cordless since it it sold without a power cord. The lamp accepts 75W incandescent bulbs, and relies on a user-supplied 3-prong extension cord for power. Since this work light is not mentioned anywhere on Snap-on’s website, it is likely a licensed 3rd […]
We found a 6″ digital caliper that is priced at about $12 over at Amazon. While we strongly prefer quality calipers over ones like this, cheap digital calipers are definitely better than no calipers. Included are the caliper, two batteries, and a storage case. The tool seems to be well reviewed – out of 54 reviews, 32 give it […]

First of all, we absolutely LOVE Xuron pliers and shears. Yes, we know that we’ve mentioned this before, but great products like Xuron’s deserve the fresh attention. Second of all, we absolutely LOVE the above product image. Here’s why Xuron products are among our favorites hand tools, and why we think that Xuron is an upstanding company: great […]
It really is no secret that impact drivers are becoming more and more popular among both professional users and consumers. With this in mind, Dewalt recently released an entire line of new Impact Ready drill and driver accessories.
Please excuse the tone of this post as I am both excited and horrified. There I was, minding my own business browsing the tool categories at Amazon, when I came across Craftsman tools offered for sale. First Ridgid tools are picked up and added to their product catalog, now Craftsman? Craftsman tools being offered for sale by 3rd parties […]
Shown above is a teaser photo of the 360 RotoRat prototype, a rather exciting new drive tool concept. The 360 RotoRat consists of a remote ratchet head that mates with a tapered drive socket to be used in extremely tight or restricted work spaces.
Bosch’s 3107DVS 5″ 3.3A random orbital sander and polisher looks to be a fine and robust tool. With a “D-handle” trigger and multi-position support handle, this sander looks like it offers a bit more control than a traditionally designed random orbital sanders would. There is an even beefier Bosch sander that is built from a […]
