That’s right, we found some PLAID Duck-branded duct tape. The pictured 10-yard roll was close to $4 at Target. $4 for 10 yards is far from a bargain since you can get twice as much tape for the price if you opt for a more conservative color, and even more if you go with traditional […]
New Porter Cable Tools at Lowes – an Informal Assessment
Last year at around this time, Porter Cable released a new line of redesigned cordless and corded tools that started lining the shelves at Lowes right before the holiday shopping season began. After the new tools were released, several recurring questions about them have popped up on online forums and discussion boards. Many of those […]
Bosch PS70-2A 12V Metal Shear
Bosch has recently added yet another tool, the PS70-2A metal shear, to its 12V Max line of lithium-ion powered compact cordless tools. With a mere 10″ length, 2.3″ height, and 3lb weight, this cordless shear is fairly compact and lightweight, and should be comfortable to use over-head. This tool is capable of cutting metal up […]
Porter Cable Combo Cordless Tool Kits Price Drop
It looks like Lowes may be trying to jump-start the holiday shopping season by dropping the prices on two popular Porter Cable combo cordless tool kits. Porter Cable’s 2-piece 18V tool kit (model PC218C-2) includes a PC1800D drill/driver, a PC186CS 6-1/2″ circular saw, and two batteries plus a charger. The kit has dropped in price […]
New Dremel 4000 High Performance Rotary Tool
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 […]
Black & Decker ReadyWrench
Well looky here, it looks like there’s a new DogBone style wrench on the market. The Black & Decker MSW100 ReadyWrench is an all-in-one wrench that offers the 16 most popular standard and metric socket sizes. “No more guesswork. No more lost or missing sockets. Stop wasting time searching for the right socket.” We cannot […]
“Snap-on” 75W “Cordless” “Heavy Duty” Drop Work Light
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 […]
6 Inch LCD Digital Calipers for $12
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 […]
DAP Pro Caulk Tool Kit
DAP’s Pro Caulk Tool Kit features tools that are claimed to make caulking and sealing quicker, easier, and with less mess, which also means less waste. While this kit won’t magically caulk your bathroom while you sleep, it should certainly help you achieve better looking joints.

Xuron Pliers & Shears – ToolGuyd Favorites
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 […]
New Dewalt Impact Ready Drill & Driver Accessories
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.
Craftsman Tools Now Available at Amazon – With a Catch!?
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 […]
360 RotoRat Prototype Teaser
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 5″ Random Orbital Sander/Polisher
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 […]
Porter Cable Low Profile 5″ Random Orbital Sander
Every now and then we find a power tool that stands apart from others in its class. Porter Cable’s 5″ Low-Profile Random Orbital Sander is one such tool. With its reduced height, we can see how that this sander would be much easier to control than traditional palm-grip sanders. While this sander’s unique low-profile design […]
Sears/Craftsman 2009 Holiday Tool Catalog!!
The new Sears/Craftsman 2009 Holiday Tool Catalog is OUT!!! Because last year’s holiday tool catalog was so intensely satisfying, I have been waiting weeks for this year’s catalog to be published. Don’t worry, I will spare you the obsessive details, at least for now. The new catalog does two things: 1) it highlights a few new products, […]
New Milwaukee Cordless Right-Angle Drill/Driver
Milwaukee very recently released a new M12 product – the 2415-21 cordless right-angle drill/driver. The main selling points of this driver are its super-compact size, 3/8″ chuck, speed control, 11-setting electronic clutch, and runtime battery gauge. The only thing we read about Milwaukee’s right-angle drill/driver that we didn’t quite like is that the kit only comes with […]
New “Snap-on” Tools, Knives, & Storage Products
As you may already be aware, Snap-on designs and manufactures high quality tools for professional and industrial use. Snap-on also occasionally rebadges high quality tools from other OEMs, sometimes offering them under their Blue Point label. New Snap-on products are exclusively sold via tool trucks and Snap-on’s website. Because of this, we were quite surprised to see a […]
