While Rockler's popular Bench Cookie Plus Master Kit normally sells for just under $64, it has come to my attention that it is currently on sale for only $39.99. The Plus Master kit not only includes a set of non-slip router cookies, but also a few different accessories that extend their versatility.

I can't imagine that the average tradesman, donning a well worn pair of work pants along with a comfortable tee-shirt, thinks about fashion while putting on a pair of rugged boots. And a GQ kinda guy I am not—even off the job site—but when I tool-up with my Blaklader Bantam Kangaroo vest, invariably someone will notice and ask, "Where'd ya get that work vest?" Framers, cabinet installers, and even electricians seeing the Blaklader vest note its practical use for their trade (in addition to its fashionable appeal).

Veto Pro Pac is launching a new line of rugged totes that feature the same high build quality that we have come to expect from the company. Like their Contractors Series of tool bags, the Cargo Totes are made with Veto's signature 3mm thick polypropylene water proof base, and 1800 denier fabric for the body. Continuing up to the handles, Veto chose to go with leather grips, which are both durable and comfortable.
