I couldn’t help myself, I purchased a Kobalt Multi Drive Wrench for review (more info about the new tool here). The full hands-on review of the universal wrench is in the works, but I wanted to share these photos about how well (or poorly) the wrench’s sockets fit fasteners.

We took a look through Sears’ Black Friday sales flyer ahead of time, and hand-picked a few of the best to share with you.
It’s hard to be excited about scissors, but Fiskar’s new “Cuts + More” looks to be incredibly versatile. It features wire, twine, and rope cutting areas, a bottle opener, and a take-apart knife design for easy cleaning and single-blade use. Even the sheath has multiple uses – it features a built-in sharpener and a hook designed to […]

The jackets are powered by Milwaukee’s new RedLithium souped-up M12 […]
Bosch just released a new video showing their new Power Box 360 enduring some pretty heavy abuse. Not as much abuse as in Ridgid recent jobsite radio torture test, but it’s still pretty serious. We’re talking concrete stadium steps and an aluminum bat. We reviewed the new Power Box 360 a few months ago – and loved […]
Amazon is offering a 2-piece Gerber mini-Suspension multitool combo set for $20, “while supplies last”. It looks like this may be a special holiday combo of slightly modified versions of Gerber’s Shortcut and Clutch pocket-friendly mini tools. If that’s true, then these should be decent performers for the money. I’ve owned a Shortcut for about five […]
The first tool of Dewalt’s new 12V Max compact cordless tool lineup that we’ll be reviewing is the 3/8″ drill/driver DCD710S2. We already reviewed the handle and common features of the 12V Max lineup, so you may want to check that out before or after this one. As expected, the drill was a pleasure to use, and […]
We just got word that Duo-Fast Construction is coming out with a new compact pneumatic 1-1/2″ Tico nailer (DF150S-TC). The nailer is used to fatsen joist hangers into wood using Tico nails. Duo-Fast reps claim that the new nailer works be 3 times faster than hand nailing and twice as fast as palm nailing.
The winner of our recent Sears $25 gift card giveaway sent us a note about what he used the gift card for.

Over at Amazon, this Dewalt 10″ compact jobsite table saw is on sale for $340. Most stores are selling it for $400, although shopping around I see that some other vendors have dropped it to $340-360. As far as I can tell, Amazon is the only one offering free shipping on the 45 lb saw (53 […]
Nebo’s Redline (#5557) is a high-output flashlight in a relatively compact and attractive package. It’s pretty affordable as well at under $30, so we figured why not, let’s review one.
Dewalt has finally launched their new lineup of cordless 12V Max lithium ion power tools. When I first previewed these new compact tools, it was love at first touch. We currently have the full range of tools in-hand for review, and will start off the series by discussing the tools’ common handle and battery design.
Porter Cable’s new Quik Jig pocket hole system has recently hit stores. If you recall, the Quik Jig is a good looking pocket hole drilling jig that Porter Cable recently came out with. The Quik Jig has been praised in early reviews for its repeatability and ease of use. Given its $230 price tag, I hesitate […]
Dewalt just announced their new Impact Clutch (DWHJHLD) accessory holder that they say will help alleviate some of the frustrations encountered in heavy-duty impact driver applications. Common high-torque issues include bit tip breakage, fastener stripping and fastener breakage.
Reader Jim sent us a brief but comprehensive review of Porter Cable’s 2-speed 14″ floor-standing band saw. The saw is designed for cutting hard and soft wood, and features a 16″ x 16″ tilting cast iron work surface. Here’s what Jim had to say about the saw:
We recently republished a reader’s review of the new Husky ratcheting rotary socket wrench that he left in comment to our post about the tool. It has since come to light that this comment/review may have been FAKE. Until we get to the bottom of this, please consider the republished user review to be invalid. In the […]
