This is a fine impact driver. It fits the hand well and is nicely balanced. It drives quarter inch lag bolts into hardwood with ease. I was hoping it would break loose the lug nuts on my Corolla. They’re only torqued to 76 foot-pounds but this driver won’t do that job. It does do a nice job of torquing them down so that very little more is required with the torque wrench. While this is subjective, the tool sounds good and is quieter than other 18v impact drivers I’ve used. A front light is helpful and so is the battery fuel gauge and the belt clip. The charger is also quieter. That’s a nice change from my Makita 18v charger. I’d buy it again.

Review : Great tool
I do a lot of windows and siding all year and this caulk gun has been great. It takes a bit ti get the hang of but once you do you can fly through your caulking jobs. This works with both the old and new 18 volt batteries and one battery lasts for days of use.
I mainly use Quad caulking that when its cold in the winter is very stiff and there is no slow down with this gun.

Review : My lawn is happy now…..
After years of using my Dad’s gas powered lawn mower, I am finally a home owner myself and embarking onto the wonderful world of home and yard improvement. One of the items that I needed badly was a lawnmover and after looking at all the different types and models I settled upon this one. Overall, I am pleased with my new lawnmower as it did the thing it was supposed to do with relative ease at a very affordable price. It really is a pleasure to not have to hassle with gas or to worry about whether I charged the battery. Just plug it in and go. My yard is a sufficient size to not battle the cord the whole time so I found the cord battle to be minimized with some simple mowing-route planning. The things I enjoyed most about the Black & Decker MM875 were its ability to raze through the toughest areas (it had been a while since my yard had been mowed!) and the ease with which it starts and stops. What a pleasure to be able to take a break and get a glass of iced tea without feeling guilty about…
Review : Love em
Drill is powerfull and can be very fast on setting 2, but controllable on setting 1. Plenty of power to it, and overall the usual dewalt quality and toughness. The impact driver wasnt exactly what i was expecting but works quite well for some tasks as well. Recently it performed better than my air impact which while it does have more power, does not impact as quickly or turn nearly as quickly. So for some bolts the electric is better, but it doesnt have the same torque a air one does. Also make sure for it to get impact rated adapters, i snapped one of mine by accident, and had to grind it to fit. Batterys are nice, not too heavy and last a good while. Easily enough for a good sized project on one charge, and if not the second battery is available and they recharge with relative speed. Not extremely fast at all, but about what youd expect. Overall great drills, great quality. Oh yeah, and the box they come in is pretty great too, tough, and simple. And has room for drill bits and…

Review : Schlage Great, Nexia has Kinks
The unit comes very nicely packaged with good documentation on how to step through the process
Installation of the Lock:
This went well and was completed within 15 minutes including removal of the old lock.I followed the documentation step by step and had the lock functional and tested the codes provided and both codes worked without issue.
This lock unit is solid, there is some cheap plastic that lets the device down a little in the appearance department (on the back side)but the external unit is very nice and very solid.One disappointment I had is that changing batteries requires removal of a portion of internal housing. Why not have a slide out unit to hold the batteries – this could be engineered a little better but it’s a minor gripe.
Installation of the Nexia Bridge:
This was somewhat more problematic. I was initially unable to register the bridge successfully and multiple device resets did not resolve the Issue. I attempted swapping the…

Review : Great price! BAD design!!
I will start by saying that it really could be an amazing product with just a few simple changes. I bought the Dremel MS20-01 Moto-Saw Variable Speed Compact Scroll Saw Kit and was really excited to use it. Mounts on any overlay about 2 inches thick or less. Very light and sturdy for what it does. Awesome variable speed feature that can be really helpful when cutting materials with different hardness. The reason I give this product 2 stars (and returned it) is because of the blades it uses and comes with. It comes with pin ended blades and can only use pin ended blades. What that means is that while using the saw, I went through 10 out of the 10 blades it came with because of the pins popping out of the blade end. I tried fitting the pins back into the blades and reusing them but they just popped out again after some use. The fun part was trying to get more blades. I couldn’t find any retailer in my area that carried them and ordering them online was not convenient because the shipping cost just about as much as the blades did. So the…

Review : Wonderful Tool – Must Buy
I have been using my new Colt router for a month now and it is a wonderful addition to my shop. I have a large bench mounted router, but this tool is now being used more often than the more powerful cousin. It is so easy to route edges, especailly for rounding over or using the flush cut router bit. Put the box or other item you want to rout on a pad made for holding the work and just cut away. The Colt is very easy to control.
Making hinge morteses is a snap because the router doesn’t grab or try to move off track. You can use the edge guide to help you make the mortese straight. All of the cutting so far has been in red oak and oak vineer plywood. It performs well in both.
The bits are easy to change, and the depth is easy to set. A well thought out tool and well worth the price. I use it all the time in my shop now. I wouldn’t be without it.

Use to cut, saw, scrape, sand, shape, polish, and remove grout
I have a full wood/metal shop, and I’ve been working wood since the late 60s. I love this Rockwell RK5140K Sonicrafter power tool. If you haven’t yet used an oscillating tool, you are in for a pleasant surprise.
I visited Lowes and Home Depot for a hands-on examination of oscillating tools and accessories available. After I got the Sonicrafter, I discovered it is easy to use. I can cut and sand in places other power tools can’t reach, and it is safer than many common power tools. In addition to sanding and sawing wood, plastic and metal, with the appropriate accessory you can scrape, rasp, or polish.
The Rockwell RK5140K has a 3.0 amp motor, so power is never an issue. I tried to stall it by imbedding a bit in wood stock, but it just kept oscillating the tool and my hands with it. It is a well built, sturdy machine. The ten-foot power cord sure beats those six or eight foot cords that some tools offer.
