Tool-Rank Editors Picks

ToolRankPick

Some tools just have something special about them, something that makes me want to give them some extra recognition. These tools might not get a perfect review, but I saw something in them that made them my personal favorites. That is what makes a Tool-Rank Editors Pick.

It might sound a bit crazy that drilling a hole into your power cord can actually make it better, but that is the idea behind the CordLatch. The CordLatch is a small accessory, that when attached to your cord, solves the problem of unwanted cord to cord unpluggings.

A few years ago I started picking out tools that I liked and gave them some extra recognition, these are known as Tool-Rank Picks. The list of Tool-Rank Picks is rather short and up until now contained only tools, but today I break tradition and add a consumable to the list; Anchor Electronics Heat Shrink Tubing.

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.

I think I have said this before, but when I saw the DeWalt ToughSystem and the features it offered, it was love at first sight. I was already in the market for a modular type storage system/tool box and had been scoping the offerings from the other brands, but the ToughSystem had a complete solution that best suited my needs.

A good roller stand is must-have for anyone working with long or wide materials, and while the Ridgid Flip Top stand doesn't exactly 'roll', it has a unique design and some great features that make it one of the best portable out-feed stands I have used. Because of the features offered in the Ridgid Flip Top Stand, it was an obvious choice to make it a Tool-Rank Pick.

Is is fair or even possible to call a ToolRank Pick just from seeing a product demonstrated in a video? Well, that is pretty much the case for the Hat Grabber. The moment I saw it in action on video I knew it had the potential to be a real winner; all I had to do is test it out for myself to make sure it worked as well as advertised and confirm my suspicions. If you remember, the Hat Grabber is a small hardhat add-on that claims to better hold your hard hat on your head....

I have wanted to write a review for the Bosch Axial Glide miter saw for a while now, but the saw has so many features, that I thought It would be best to just do a video review. It looks like Bosch really took their time to make sure everything was done right, this not only includes the things you would expect, like bevel and miter controls, but even the smallest of things are done right. The Bosch GCM12SD miter saw is great, and is probably the best 12" saw on the market. I do a lot...

Remember a few days ago I went on a rant against carpenters pencils? I also talked about my new favorite carpenter pencil replacement, the Staedtler graphite 771. Well, I put together a little video to show you its cool features. The 771 is now my go-to pencil throughout the day, though I do keep a .7mm on hand when greater accuracy is needed. I don't think this pencil was designed for carpenters, but it has a lot of great features on it that suit our needs.

Introduction Porter-Cable first announced their ultra compact line of 12-volt tools back in August of 2010. They were one of the last of the major brands to make tools in the ultra compact category, but they had a few extra features that set them apart, as well as a lower price. One tool in the new line that caught my eye was their version of the ultra compact reciprocating saw; it had a new simple clamping feature that looked like could really come in handy. Porter-Cable was awesome enough to send their ClampSaw to...

You might remember a past post Bosch introduces their new DareDevil spade bit line, where Bosch introduces a self feeding spade bit.
