Don’t Take TAX Advice from a Tool Blog

2016 Tax Deductions for Tools

Certainly anything tax related consult a professional but we got an interesting piece of promotional material from our friends at Jet & Powermatic about buying equipment. We thought we’d pass on as many tool users are also small business owners. We were not aware you can deduct up to $500,000 (for 2016) for tools, equipment and even “business-use” vehicles under section 179. Average business tax rates are 35% so if your business is having a good year it might be time to consider purchases. The end of the year is also when all the Holiday Deals hit so a nice time to consider purchases.

There is an entire .ORG website dedicated to Understanding Section 179 which if you are interested you can learn more there. Also they have a calculator to figure out what deductions can be taken for savings. Talk to your tax professional to see how this applies to you.

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…)

Powermatic Drum Sander PM2244 with Feed Logic

Powermatic Drum Sander

With a tag line like Exceed Your Expectations you better deliver some pretty amazing machinery and with a $2500 price tag the Expectations are going to be pretty high. From what we’ve seen the Powermatic PM2244 Drum Sander delivers well beyond just a high quality 22” drum sander. The LED control panel with digital readout and zero-out feature are nice to ensure accuracy. But the real feature that will truly give you a better final product is the Feed Logic which will actually detect overload and adjust the conveyor belt feed rate down to ensure the best possible finish. For more info on the PM2244 check out the videos below and Powermatic press release below that.
