This saw is simply perfect. Its not one of those massive saws that you need to lug around and find storage for, but it gets the job done just as good. Best thing is, it has a life time warranty with registration.

The Dewalt 15 Amp 13 in. Corded Planer (DW735) is a near perfect machine, but still has a few quirks.



The DEWALT planer (DW735) is a tool that takes your average weekend wood worker and turns him/her into someone that can make some really professional grade items. It’s by far one of the most sought after tools on the market and I understand why, but there are a few quirks to this machine that we wish weren’t there.

Milwaukee Launches M18 SWITCH TANK System – The Industry’s First Interchangeable Sprayer and Water Supply System

Milwaukee now offers lifetime warranty on shockwave tips. 
MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool continues to re-define extreme driver bit performance and wear resistance with the introduction of SHOCKWAVE™ MATRIX CARBIDE, a new line of premium driver bits backed by a Lifetime Tip Warranty.

Don’t have an endless supply of money to drop on a tool organization system? If not, check out our review of the Husky 14 in. Rolling Tool Tote with Bonus 12 in. Bag. (14Combo12)



There are a lot of different options on the market for tool organizers and cases, the problem is, they usually cost a lot of money. That is where the Husky 14” rolling tote shines. Not only is it a very well built tool transporting tote, but it’s also set at a great price.

The RIDGID OCTANE ROTARY HAMMER  R86711B does a fantastic job when used with a chisel. 


RIDGID has been pumping out some amazing tools for their new OCTANE line for the past few months, but the new RIDGID 18V OCTANE Rotary Hammer is really something that they should be proud of.

The Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 12 LED Flashlight (DML801) shines in more ways than one, but it does have one flaw.



I have had this light for review for over a month now, and I have used it a lot. My work shop is about fifty yards from my house, so I have to walk that distance without any illumination at night. I also don’t have any power installed in there yet, so I have been depending on extension cords ran from the house, and battery powered lighting units.

DEWALT 20-Volt Max Cordless Grease Gun Review (DCGG571B)



 
The Dewalt Cordless Grease Gun offers continuous flow

Through high school and even a few years after I graduated, I worked in an auto body/mechanic shop. Nearly every day I had to grease car and truck bearings, and I hated it. I really disliked constantly moving that lever up and down, up and down, up and down. Other than working with fiberglass, it was my least favorite job to do. Fast forward twenty three years, and look how far technology has come. We tried the Dewalt Cordless Grease Gun (Model# DCGG571B), and this is what we thought.

It’s one of those items that even if you’re not in the market for it, you still need to walk over and check it out. That’s how awesome this tool box is, but what do we really think of this mega box?
