Milwaukee Cordless Dual Bevel Miter Saw Review

Milwaukee Cordless Dual Bevel Miter Saw ReviewI remember back when I was helping my dad renovate our old split level home in Allentown, PA. We did everything with a circular saw, a corded drill, and some well-used hand tools. What I wouldn’t have given for a good cordless saw back then. Of course, back then, the concept of a cordless miter […]

Ridgid 18V 7-1/4 Inch Brushless Miter Saw

Ridgid 18V 7-1/4 Inch Brushless Miter SawWe love that the tool technology envelope-pushing continues at full speed. That means we get to use tools in ways that we couldn’t, wouldn’t, and sometimes even shouldn’t before (have you seen Kenny put his hand in the paths of the SawStop and Reaxx blades yet?). A big driver of tool technology has been in […]

How to Use a Reciprocating Saw Like a Pro

How to Use a Reciprocating Saw Like a ProThere’s probably no more useful saw for remodelers, plumbers, electricians, and homeowners than the reciprocating saw. It’s hard to imagine a jobsite without one. But that was the reality before Milwaukee introduced the Sawzall – the name that became a generic trademark – in 1951. The recip saw is basically a motorized hacksaw and today […]

Bosch 18V Compact Reciprocating Saw

Bosch 18V Compact Reciprocating SawIt’s hard to imagine a jobsite without the reciprocating saw’s helpful blade. But if you were a tradesman before Milwaukee introduced the first Sawzall in 1951, you used a hand saw with a lot of elbow grease. Electric hack saws changed the jobsite for the better forever. Yet the design remained nearly unchanged for almost 70 years. […]

DeWalt DW872 Multi-Cutter Saw Review

DeWalt DW872 Multi-Cutter Saw ReviewNo matter what you’re into, most of us are always looking around to see what the other guy has. I’m constantly checking out what bikes show up at the Saturday group ride, what trucks are parked at the jobsite, and what tools are in other shops. What really gets my attention is when a tool company uses an […]

Makita 12V Max CXT Recipro Saw RJ03R1

Makita 12V Max CXT Recipro Saw RJ03R1I’ve got 12V tools on the brain. It might have something to do with the fact that we have a 12V drill shootout underway, but I’m falling back in love with the lower voltage. They’re lightweight, compact, and just easier on the these old bones. Not that I’m old, it’s just an expression. Ah, never […]

Kobalt 24V Brushless Reciprocating Saw Review

Kobalt 24V Brushless Reciprocating Saw ReviewIt can be daunting when you’re doing a heavy duty reciprocating saw shootout. This week I just had the Kobalt 24V brushless reciprocating saw and a couple other competing products on-hand. Not as stressful, and nearly as much fun. It gave me a chance to get a feel for this saw apart from the excitement of the NASCAR Kobalt 400 race where I had […]
