New Bosch Drills Feature Active Response Technology To Save Your Wrists From Injury

Written by Chris     April 03, 2014    

If you have ever used a large hole-saw in a drill you know the dangers that can happen if the saw binds into the wood. The drill will either twist right out of your hand, or your wrist will end up twisting right along with it. To prevent this from happening, Bosch's new DDH181X Drill and HDH181X Hammer Drill use something called Active Response Technology.

Makita XSH01X Giveaway

I am excited to announce that Makita has joined in on the giveaway fun and is offering up their brand new 18V X2 (36-volt) 7-1/4-inch Cordless Circular Saw for this month's giveaway. This saw gives you the power of a corded saw with the portability of a cordless by using two 18V batteries to give you a total of 36-volts of power. The added power that this saw offers also allows it to use a standard 7-1/4-inch saw blade rather than a typical 6 or 6-1/2-inch blade.

Matthias Wandel Builds A Motorized Scaffold Out of Wood And A Drill

Written by Chris     March 21, 2014    
Motorizing and test driving the scaffold

Matthias Wandel, of woodgears.ca once again proves that he can build pretty much anything out of wood and other scraps he has lying around his shop. In previous videos he built himself a wooden scaffold to reach the lights that needed to be changed in his large shop. In his latest video he uses more scrap wood and a drill to motorize his scaffold, complete with forward, reverse, and steering. The results are more impressive than you might have thought.
