Father's Day is just around the corner and once again I have been requested to put out a gift guide. If I am being completely honest, I don't really like putting out these gift buying guides, because then I feel responsible if the gifts turn out to be duds. However, I understand that finding gifts that Dad will enjoy can be challenging at times. So I will give you some ideas of some tools I think are cool; just don't hold me responsible if your Dad doesn't like it; though he probably will, because all tools are cool.

After DeWalt only recently came out with their Flexvolt system to address the needs of power hungry cordless tools, they have expanded the line to include the growing market of cordless outdoor power equipment. The DeWalt Flexvolt Outdoor Power Equipment lineup will include a new 60V Max Chainsaw, Handheld Blower, and String Trimmer.
Craftsman has been in trouble for a number of years, I think mostly due to the fact that Sears itself has been having problems. Today, though, Stanley Black & Decker completed their purchase of the Craftsman brand from Sears Holdings Corporation, and Craftsman will have a second chance as a maker of American tools.
The age-old question of whether you buy a jigsaw or a reciprocating saw has finally been answered; you don't buy either, you buy a Worx Axis instead. The WX550L Axis is a new combination cordless tool from WORX that transforms from a jigsaw into a reciprocating saw and accepts standard blades from both tools.
It is easier than ever to find a cordless replacement for any number of once corded-only power tools. Yet, the fact still remains that there are certain tools that are not yet cordless or may never be cordless. When you need to use these tools in a place without an outlet nearby, your only option is a noisy gas generator—which is useless indoors. DeWalt's answer to this problem is their new DCB1800 1800-Watt Portable Power Station and Parallel Battery Charger.
