When working with small wooden projects or crafts, one of the hardest parts of completing your project is the final sanding. Getting into those nooks and crannies with regular sandpaper is not exactly easy. The Sanding Detailer is a product I recently discovered that is a stick sander that uses replaceable belts and is small enough to fit where other sanders cant.
Today DeWalt announced that they will begin to build more than 600 different hand tools, cordless tools and accessories in the USA using global materials. Included will be some of their most popular products, such as the 20V Max Lithium-ion Compact Drill/Driver Kit and the 20V Max Lithium-ion ¼-inch Impact Driver Kit. The new tools will be marked with a "Built In USA" logo.
A Tool-Rank user sent in a tip about a price reduction on the Wiss 1-1/2-inch 3-piece Steel Aviation Snips set at Lowe's. The regular price on these was about $35, but they have now been reduced to $19.97, a savings of 43%.
For comparison, HomeDepot has this same 3-piece set listed for $31.46. Quantities and availability may vary from location to lactation, but you also have the option to buy from Lowe's online. If your local HomeDepot carries this same set, you also have the option of using their price matching policy to get an additional 10% off.
The set includes snips to do straight cuts, left cuts, and right cuts in low carbon cold rolled steel up to 18-gauge thickness. They feature a spring action handle to speed up cutting, and a latch keeps the jaws closed when not in use. The Wiss snips also happen to be made in the USA.
Bosch sent out an email yesterday with a subject line reading "Next big thing is coming!" If you open up the email there is a video (below) that shows the reactions of various contractors after they got their hands on it. In the video we can hear what sounds like an impact driver, but it is what one guy says that suggests it could be something more; "I'd say it's the next best thing... since the impact". He goes on to say "this makes it right here, the impact part of it..."
So what is it, part impact, part what? Or is it just a better impact? Care to take your guess? Bosch will lets us know on 11/11/13 in their big reveal.
