3D printing technology sure has come a long way in these last few years. Something that wasn't even well known, is now not only known, but is at the point where it can actually be used to make production items.

I spend quite a bit of time on the internet searching for new or interesting tools to share, but I can't find them all. Thankfully Tool-Rank has readers that also send in their finds. Yesterday a tipster sent in a link to a unique tool that turns your table saw into a lathe of sorts.

DeWalt has announced their first entry into oscillating tools with their corded 3.0-amp model DWE315K. Some might DeWalt is late into the game, but others might say they have been taking their time to ensure they come out with the best product. The new DWE315K does seem to have some new features that are not being offered anywhere else.

The Festool Carvex Jigsaw was first introduced to North America back in March of 2011. It had a ton of really nice features, but the feature that caught my attention was the LED strobe light that could visually freeze the movement of the jigsaw blade. Sadly, about a month after it was announced, Festool pulled the Carvex and sent out a letter stating "...Late round testing in certain applications specific to North America has demonstrated that the current design does not meet the exacting standards that we demand of ourselves, and that our customers have come to expect..." ...

I have always looked at the Festool MFT (Multi-Function Table) as great little work table, but not practical for jobsite use. I just never liked the idea of having to carry it around on the jobsite along with all of my other tools.

Not too long ago Milwaukee introduced a whole new line of M12 Fuel drills and impacts that feature the latest in brushless tool technology.
