I know how hard it can be to buy gifts for your family or even to come up gift ideas for yourself when asked; so every year I put together a Christmas Gift Tool Buyers Guide of a few tools or accessories that I think an enthusiastic tool user might enjoy. Heck, I want some of these for myself.

Why is it that most of the time you need to free up a stuck bolt it is hidden deep down into the mechanical workings where you can barely see it? You could stick a dirty flashlight into your mouth and try and hit the bolt with some penetrating lubricant, but for some reason you can never get your aim right. Thankfully, Liquid Wrench has come out with a solution that solves this very problem.

I have been researching CNC Router Kits lately, trying to see if it would be worth it for me to automate some of the work I have been doing. One thing that bothers me with what I have been seeing is the way the drive mechanisms are exposed to dust and debris. My other concern is with the rigidity of CNC routers made using extruded aluminum. However, the new C-Beam based WorkBee from Ooznest seems to address both of my concerns while still remaining modular.

Marketed for residential use, the Generac 7122 Speedwash System is a gasoline pressure washer with the power and reliability that you’d expect from a professional model; and frankly, after experiencing such precision delivered force, I wouldn’t want to start a job with any other home model or have the need of a professional model.

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. ...

Milwaukee Tools has announced a new compact and lightweight miter saw stand that weighs only 31-pounds yet has a weight capacity of over 500-pounds. Its portability would pair nicely with the cordless 18V miter saw Milwaukee came out with last year.

On January 27, 2017, the International Trade Commission instituted a ban prohibiting the import of Reaxx table saws into the U.S. Despite what you may have heard regarding the availability of the Bosch Reaxx Table Saw, you are still able to purchase one; at least for a limited time.
