Steel-Flex Knee Pads and Strapped Knee Pads Review

Whenever I’m working on flooring or tile, I prefer work pants with knee pockets. Having owned and worn both Blaklader Bantam pocket pants and Armed Work Wear pants, I’ve just found the integrated pockets to be great for avoiding knee pads with straps. Steel-Flex (owned by Senco—I know, you gotta keep up!) is, as far as we can tell, the American […]

Best Battery Charger for Power Tools

We do a lot with both tools and batteries. Case in point are our articles on the DeWalt FlexVolt technology and the Milwaukee 9.0 Ah batteries. But what about the battery chargers that resupply energy to these batteries? As it turns out, there are possibly even more differences among battery chargers than the packs themselves. While […]

Husky Tool Box and Work Bench Review – Back in Black!

I liked my old Husky tool box. It had nice secure-latch drawers that kept them closed. It was black, so it didn’t stick out like a sore thumb. Those Husky tool boxes were priced competitively, and had some features that made them a pretty good value. I also loved the 46″ Husky workbench and continue using it even today. Where they may have been […]
