Milwaukee TICK – Tool Tracking for Under $20

Tick Tool Tracking

Ever had a $30/hour employee spend 2 hours tracking down a tool? For any company managing multiple crews and a variety of equipment tracking those tools can be a challenge. Power Tools, Ladders, Generators, Pipe Benders, Gang Boxes, Mixers, Mag Drills, Table Saws, etc, etc. There are systems which can cost tens of thousands to setup with annual fees that would make your head spin. The Milwaukee TICK is a one-time cost as low as $19.98, no additional fees ever!!

Milwaukee ONE-KEY app launched a little over a year ago with a handful of Milwaukee M18 Tools that offer ability to control how the tool functions, report on performance and track the tool’s last known location.

Milwaukee M18 FUEL Mid-Torque Impact Wrenches

Milwaukee M18 2861-20

It’s no secret among mechanics there is a large migrations away from air tools towards cordless options. New impacts can generate a ton of power in some case too much however they can also be bulky and don’t always offer enough control of the power. These new “Mid-Torque” M18 FUEL Impacts provide a solution with plenty of torque needed for most applications but much closer in size to their compact impacts with more options for control of the power. These new 2860-22 ($399, ½” pin) and 2861-22 ($399, ½” ring) both offer 450 ft lbs torque and should fill the need for many tradesmen.

Milwaukee RedStick vs Stabila Levels

New Milwaukee Redstick

It was not been a secret that with Milwaukee’s acquisition on Empire Levels as well as another measuring tape manufacturer they had their eyes focused heavily on building a full range of measuring hand tools. With Empire already covering economic to mid-high range levels, squares, caution tapes, utility detectable tapes, measuring tapes, bobs, calipers, etc the only direction to go was up. Stabila has held the market for high end, extremely accurate levels for many years in US and Milwaukee has not been shy where the Milwaukee RedStick Torpedo & Box Levels will compete in the market (they even put it on their packaging).

Can Milwaukee M12/M18 Radio Take On BOSE

2891-20 M18 Radio

As Bluetooth speakers from BOSE, BEATS and many other have become much more powerful while actually shrinking in size we have wondered why so many of the jobsite radios have remained the size of 80’s Boomboxes. The new Milwaukee radio speaker, Pre-order Now 2891-20 ($149). looks to change the game with style, size and clarity that will make it competitive not only among jobsite radios but for anyone looking for high quality Bluetooth speakers.

Milwaukee m12 m18 bluetooth

 

Powered by either the Milwaukee M12 or M18 systems batteries, IP54 can handle jobsite or beach, 40W of power to 6 speakers for 119 decibels (Bose at 116 & Beats at 99), Total Harmonic Distortion of .28% (Bose at .31% & Beats at .50%), AC power option, 2.1 Amp USB output and compact design of only 14” which is still tough enough to get knocked around. Retail price will be around $150. Unfortunately this new radio is not going to be under any Christmas Trees this holiday as it doesn’t launch until January. For more info check out the official Milwaukee Press Release info below.

Miter Saw Dust Collector Plans – Build Something

Miter Saw Dust Collector Plans

Miter Saws are messy, nothing is going to catch everything but we have been fairly disappointed in pretty much all the vacuum attachments on miter saws. For a shop purposes simply building a Miter saw Dust Collector seems like the obvious, most economical solution. Certainly it’s not a 1 size fits all solution as there are many sizes and styles of miter saws out there. BuildSomething has this Miter Saw Dust Collector Free Plans which is a terrific starting point you can tailor to your needs. (more…)

Holidays for the Pros 2017 Coptool Gift Guide

Holiday for the pros 2017

Every holiday season it seems like the big boxes put serious pressure on all the name brand Power Tool guys to make the cheapest possible cordless tool kits and accessory bundles to hit their price points. They’ll pack them with older SKUs or lower amp batteries or throw in stuff that doesn’t always make sense all in an effort to show a “better deal” often targeting consumers that might not know the difference. We thought we’d take a different approach to find deals that make sense for PROFESSIONALS who know their stuff, to find the best deals on the latest and greatest stuff at all price levels. Use Coupon Code = GIFTGUIDE at Ohio Power Tool to receive Free Shipping on any of these specific items!! (more…)
