I just want to say a few things about Tool-Rank and why I started the site, and also go over a few plans/ideas I have for the future. I am a full time finish carpenter, and run Tool-Rank in all my after work time. The reason I started Tool-Rank is simple. I was/am tired of seeing tool companies taking tools in the wrong direction. It started with one particular saw that was great when it came out new, but started to show its weakness as new innovative features started to appear in its competition. I had expectations...

I have added a comment system to all tool reviews. Now you will be able to ask questions, or add comments about a tool or review. This is replacing the old comment system that was used to link tool reviews with the forums. This should be a better system having both on the same page. So be sure to check back on your reviews every once in a while to see if there are any comments.

I then spent a good amount of last night styling it to make it look better, and get everything to line up correctly. I have added it to the right sidebar, and have used it to replace the blog links. When you...

As a test run I have added the ability for users to submit their own blogs. You will notice user PutnamEco has added the very first user blog.This is a feature I would like to keep, as long as it doesn't get abused. For right now they will remain on the front page, but they might end up getting moved later on. Try to keep your blogs tool related. If you have ever wanted to have your own tool blog, now is the time to get started. Don't know what a blog is? Here is Wikipedia's...

There was a bug in the entry form that was preventing Internet Explorer users from selecting a state. I believe this error has been fixed. Please let me know if it was not. Sorry for the inconvenience. You still have the rest of this month to enter. Good Luck
