Drill bits are a staple of the jobsite because, well, something always needs a hole in it. You may think you need more drill bit information like you need a hole in the head, but not all coatings and treatments are well-suited for every job. I’ll use just about any bits, but I usually find myself […]
The concept of a socket for turning rods, bolts, or fasteners has existed since the middle ages. But the tool we’d recognize as a ratchet today didn’t exist until J.J. Richardson invented it in the 1860s. Since that time heads and sockets have become hexagonal, but the indexed ratchet has remained quite similar to its […]
Multi-purpose tools are any Pro’s best friend – they reduce the number of tools you need to carry which maximizes the space in your tool bag.

When I was a kid, my dad helped me “conquer” my fear of heights by taking me on antenna jobs with him. We’d climb multi-story buildings and mount rigid pipe for VHF and UHF antennas. Big fun for a pre-teen, but it got me used to being up high. When I first laid eyes on the Werner […]

Adjustable wrenches (commonly referred to by the brand name Crescent Wrench) are a staple in tool boxes around the country. These are popular among the trades, but nearly every professional has a use for them somewhere along the line.
