Bosch Comes Out With 10-Inch Axial-Glide Dual Bevel Miter Saw

Written by Chris     October 21, 2013    
Bosch CM10GD Axial Glide Miter Saw

Three years ago Bosch came out with a new axial-glide sliding system for their 12-inch miter saw, a system that uses articulating arms rather than rails to slide the saw blade back and forth. The Axial-Glide saw was the talk of the town, but people also wanted a 10-inch version. Now, just in time for Christmas, the CM10GD 10-inch Axial-Glide has arrived.

When you think of Milwaukee you don't really think of hand tools, but Milwaukee has been on a push over the last couple of years to change all that. This year Milwaukee has introduced a number of new hand tools, including the screwdrivers we will be reviewing today. In the review I will be going over their General Purpose Screwdriver Set as well has their 10in1 Ratcheting and 10in1 Non-ratcheting drivers.

Outlaw - The World’s Best Deck Screw?

Written by Chris     October 14, 2013    

You know what it's like to get calls from telemarketer's trying to sell you everything from life insurance to carpet cleaning products, and all you can do is wonder how your name got on their list? Well, that is what my email inbox looks like, and that is just emails about new Kickstarter projects. And while many of the projects that are seeking funding are cool, most would not fit into the Tool category. But every once in a while I get an email about a new product, it falls into the tool category, and it is not lame; today that product is a new screw named "Outlaw" and it is trying to start a revolution.
