Now almost a year after Canada had it, it looks like we will finally have an opportunity to buy the LXDT06 for ourselves.
Tool News & Reviews
Here at Tool-Rank we often come across great tools that do their jobs well; but only every once in a while do we come across a tool that we absolutely love. Those products deserve some extra recognition and are given the Tool-Rank Pick badge, an award that tells the world they are special. Today the award goes to the Coast Rapid Response Knife.
If you are really into woodworking you might be willing to spend 3 days salary on a really good block plane, but most of us probably won't. We will spend enough to get an OK plane and complain about the cut quality later. LeeValley has a simple way to improve your plane, and that is to use one of their replacement plane blades.
There is something common we all need when working on any type of project, and that is good layout and marking tools. But one tool is not good enough for every task. This month Tool-Rank has teamed up with Johnson Level to give away three of their newest layout squares so that you are ready to tackle your projects.
