Due to the shortage of N95 respirators and similar masks people have had to turn to reusing the masks or filters they would normally throw away. There are a lot of ideas floating around the internet about how to best disinfect an N95 respirator, but instead of believing what Average Joe had to say, I decided to reach out to the mask manufacturer that makes the ELIPSE mask I use for work and ask them directly. Here is what they had to say.

We live in busy times as it is so when I finally have time to work on a project, whether it is woodworking or just fixing stuff around the house, the last thing I want is to have to wait for the glue to dry before I can move onto the next step. So when Starbond reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try out their fast curing CA glues, I was more than happy to give them a try.

A few years ago I made a free online hydroponic fertilizer calculator specifically for mixing Masterblend 4-18-38 fertilizer, with Calcium Nitrate, and Magnesium Sulfate in the correct ratios for any size water container to grow vegetables. Today, I am happy to announce that the hydroponic calculator is now a free Android App.

Finally, someone has made a Track Saw the right way, and by "right", I actually mean left. What I actually mean is that Kreg has come out with a new Track Saw System and they have gone against the norm by using a blade-left design—something I have been complaining about for years. The new Kreg Track Saw is more than just the saw though; the saw is only part of the Kreg Adaptive Cutting System, designed to replace a table saw and even a miter saw for certain tasks.

Stuart over at ToolGuyd posted an article about a new dust cyclone attachment (199553-5) for Makita cordless vacuums that separates the dust before it has a chance to clog the dust filter. The nifty little accessory attaches inline between the extension "wand" and the handheld vacuum unit to act as the first stage of fine dust collection before the main bag. There is one problem though; the Makita Dust Cyclone is currently priced at $55 on Amazon, yet looks nearly identical to one that can be found on eBay for as little as $12.

We all love the idea of cordless versions of our favorite benchtop power tools that we can use out in the field, but we are less thrilled about what happens when these power-hungry tools drain the battery. Metabo HPT (formerly Hitachi Power Tools) has launched a brand new line of MultiVolt power tools that address this issue. If you run out of power, simply plug the cordless tool to into a wall outlet.
