Milwaukee Tape Measures


About 2 years ago, Milwaukee Tool heavily invested resources into creating a hand tool division with the professional contractor in mind. Part of that initial lineup was a number of tape measures designed for maximum durability and increased functionality.

Thsee hand tools have been a huge hit with pros and serious DIY-ers alike. Milwaukee has recognized a need for more variety within the segment though; not everyone needs all of the bells and whistles included on the initial line of tapes. These new tapes have a few less features, with a lower price, all the while maintaining the durability factor their tapes are known for.

Bosch GTS1041A REAXX Portable Jobsite Table Saw


I have no doubt this will be one of the biggest stories in power tools for 2015! This is so damn exciting and I had the pleasure of seeing a live demonstration earlier this year at a private media event with Bosch. My reaction was WOW! Using a German Bratwurst as a demonstration the user tried to cut the Brat in half and the saw shut down so fast there wasn’t even a scratch on it! This new saw is sure to put up some serious competition against the SawStop portable table saw that was announced earlier this year as well.

The screw gun was deigned for driving screws into both wood and steel studs in residential or commercial applications. For many years drywall and plaster contractor avoided cordless tools because they were less powerful, slower, heavy, and their cordless run-time sucked!

KEEN Utility Braddock AL WP Work Boot


I have weird feet. There, I said it. Painful flat feet kind of weird. I’ve worn a lot of other work boots over the years and my feet almost always ached at the end of the day. The only times they didn’t was during the middle of winter; the times I had to wear my snow boots because it was so cold out. For years I’ve been looking for a different kind of work boot that doesn’t hurt my feet. I’m on my second pair of Keens in a row and they won’t be my last.
