BOSTITICH 2.5 GAL AIR COMPRESSOR

As a Do-It-Yourself-er, I need an air compressor for the brad nailer, staplers, and nail guns. I previously owned an upright 12 Gallon Craftsman, which served me great. The only reason I got rid of it was because it was an awkward in-between size

DEWALT 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw with Brake

I’ll be the first to say that I don’t like the battery powered skill saws. They aways bog down mid-cut. Now that’s what I use to think, until I got my hands of Dewalt’s new DEWALT 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw with Brake.

DREMEL UNIVERSAL BLADES

Let’s be honest. There’s no need to talk-up this blade set. The whole point is that, if you are in the 99% group who owns any kind of the multi-oscillating tools below, these blades will fit. Now that’s impressive.

RYOBI 18V HIGH VOLUME INFLATOR

Let’s be honest, pool toys nowadays are getting bigger and wilder. Back when I was a kid, at most we had a beach ball and/or floaties. Now, there are 5 person sectionals with a drink cooler and a foot rest.

DREMEL MULTI-MAX 5.0

A few months ago I did a review on the Dremel Multi max MM45 4.0. I love that tool and I gave it 2 thumbs up. Since then, Dremel decided to once again stay at the height of the competition by providing the new and improved 5.0 AMP motor.

MILWAUKEE PEN LIGHT

The New 100 Lumen Milwaukee Pen Light with Clip is so simple but so handy. I usually have a large mag light that I use or even the large flashlight that comes with my 6 piece tool set, but for the small spaces I don’t really have anything that has quick and easy access.

DIABLO SANDNET

Along with DIABLO’s impressive blades and router bits, comes the new sanding discs. lets see what they feature and what makes them stand out.

MILWAUKEE 22 .oz MILLED FACE FRAMING HAMMER

MAKITA 18V XLT CORDLESS 23-GAUGE PIN NAILER

RYOBI 18V WORKSHOP BLOWER

I’ll be completely honest with you, I didn’t know that a product like this even existed. But boy, am I glad it does. You see, my workshop is ALWAYS covered with sawdust in one place or another. And there are only so many places I can get my dust pan into before I call it quits. This is where this smaller down version of a leaf blower comes in.

RYOBI ONE+ONE BRUSHLESS SLIDING MITER SAW

Let’s be honest, as weekend warriors and DIYers, we need our tools to be ready for setup and teardown, since we might not have the permanent room in our garage/storage shed. That’s where the all new RYOBI ONE+ONE Brushless Dual-Bevel 10″ Sliding Miter saw comes in as a perfect solution to the minimal work space setup.

HUSKY 52" TOOL CHEST AND CABINET (FLAT BLACK)

When it comes to tool storage, it is every shop owner’s dream to own a big heavy duty tool chest/cabinet. Unfortunately the majority of these tool boxes cost anywhere between $1,500 and $10,000, and so only 1% of the people actually end up getting one. Well, that is not the case anymore.

DREMEL 4300 ROTARY TOOL

The new Dremel rotary to has a new sleek design. lets see what’s the latest buzz.

RYOBI ONE+ BRUSHLESS HAMMER DRILL

HUSKY 22 IN CONNECT ROLLING SYSTEM TOOL BOX

As some of you already know, we’ve been busy tackling this home renovation. And I will say, there’s nothing more frustrating than knowing you have to make 10 trips back to your truck or workshop to carry the load of tools to accomplish the task.

RYOBI ONE+ PALM ROUTER

A Palm router is probably the 3rd or 4th most used tool in my arsenal. Number one, two, and three would be the table saw, miter saw, and sander. And then comes the palm router. After all the cutting, the palm router with a round-over bit or a trim bit are my bits of choice on almost 80% of my projects.

RYOBI ONE+ BRUSHLESS BELT SANDER

When is comes to big jobs like re-doing your hardwood floors or your deck, the everyday random orbital sander is just too small for a job so tough. That’s why the tool of choice is a belt sander. The New Ryobi 18V ONE+ Brushless Belt Sander makes it easy for you to accomplish bringing any wooden surface to its core material in seconds (not minutes), all while being cordless.

DEWALT 20V/60V BLUETOOTH RADIO/CHARGER

I’ve recently began a journey to remodel a home. Working 16 hrs a day on said home gets pretty lonesome and tedious after a while. So that’s why the DeWALT Bluetooth Radio/ Charger came in extra handy for me. Now, I know there are many other job site chargers out there, but let me share with you why I like this  particular one.

MAKITA CORDED TRACK SAW

I, like many other wood workers, have drank what we call the “Green Cool-aide”. What that means is that we tried at least one Festool product and have loved it so much that we started purchasing different ones. I myself, for example, bought the Festool Domino as well as the Festool Roxtex sander. I justified spending the money on those tools because nothing came close to those tools on the market by other brands, so it was a no-brainer.

EVOLUTION CHOP SAW

Not all Cut-off/Chop saws are created equal. I’ve been using a basic chop saw from Harbor Freight with a Diablo abrasive wheel and I must say, that thing does not pick up its slack. Here’s what I mean: First, it make a bulky cut, which makes it REALLY hard to do precision cuts that are within 1/16th of an inch variable, if even that. 2) Once you make that cut, the amount of melted steel that needs to be grinded off for the cut is time consuming.

HOMERIGHT SPRAY BOOTH

If you are looking for a spray shield for painting, here are my thoughts on the HomeRight Spray Shield.

LAGUNA FUSION TABLE SAW

A table saw is just something that spins the blade. The true magic comes from the features that the saw has in order to make the perfect cut that you’re happy with. I’ve been meaning to upgrade my table saw for quite some time and I’ve finally got around to it. I liked my previous RIDGID R4512, but as my skill set began to grow, so did my standards. Here are the 5 things I’ve been looking for in a table saw that I’ve found in the LAGUNA FUSION.
