  1. Back in early 2017, OSHA announced new silica dust regulations and Bosch was the first company to proactively contact us to start the push toward education before the September 23rd deadline. That date has come and gone, but there’s still plenty of confusion running around about what you need and what you don’t. To help, […]

  2. My love affair with Makita low-voltage tools continues with a new stick impact driver. You’ll find this Makita 7.2V impact driver with the model number TD022DSE. Now before we dig into the features and specs, allow me to make the case for having a low-power drill or impact driver in your toolkit. One guy asked […]

  3. It’s about 95 percent likely that you used a device with a lithium-ion battery before you got dressed this morning. Maybe it was even more than one device: a watch, a toothbrush, a laptop or tablet, and almost certainly your phone. Even your car might use such a battery – but hopefully, you dressed before driving. […]

  4. Adding to their collection of OSHA-compliant dust collection solutions, the Milwaukee SDS-Plus Dust Trap Drilling Shroud makes its debut. This one is pretty simple and it’s not terribly expensive. When you take the Dust Trap out of the package, it will be in two pieces. Just twist the dust cap on clockwise to put them […]

  5. For jobsite use, we talk a lot about portable dust extractors. If you’re not mobile, dust extraction can become a semi-permanent setup in your shop. One of the advantages is a lot more CFM (air volume) than you get with most portable units. Take the Dust Right wall mount dust collector. Their model TADC-34WN is capable of […]

  6. If you’ve been hesitant to give Kobalt’s 24V Max lineup a shot, you’re not alone. The old 18V and 20V Max lines earned a reputation for being Prosumer at best, so what’s one more cell in the pack? There’s actually quite a bit more going on that just boosting the voltage. You have brushless motors […]

  9. Drywall finishing is an underappreciated art. Like so many other grand ironies in life, the perfect job will go unnoticed. However, people will pay a lot of attention to a poorly done job. Pops, over-sanding, messy outlet hole cuts, and bubbled seams all stick out like sore thumbs. Even if you’ve mastered the finer parts […]

  10. Ladders come in all shapes and sizes, yet there’s one universal truth – having the right ladder for the job at hand not only makes the job easier but also safer.
