Safe Cracking with Milwaukee Carbide Torch & Carbide HoleDozer

Carbide Sawzall Blades

We just received this Milwaukee PACKOUT sample case and challenge to use the accessories to do the #CarbideGaunet. While drilling through some nail embedded wood or rebar a few hundred time sounds like fun we really wanted to see if these could handle something a little more challenging, like getting into a safe! Certainly those have to be tough right, are these new accessories tough enough to drill thought the locking mechanism or cut through the entire safe?

Dust Extractor Testing – Tool Box Buzz, Pro Tool Reviews, Coptool

2017 hepa vacuums

Towards the end of last year when the OSHA silica rules were going into effect we were getting lots of questions about dust extractors specific to Silica, how they are each viewed under OSHA’s Table 1 standards and of course how each performed head to head. At the time there were no head-to-heads out there on these vacs so the Coptool Team got on the case to put together a basic Vacuum Head-to-Head to help users gain more information.

Since our video first aired several manufacturers have made updates to their products with lower prices and/or included HEPA filters which is awesome news for everyone! Also two of our tool reviewing hero’s Pro Tool Reviews and Tool Box Buzz jumped on the case to do their own vacuum comparisons, with some great testing rigs and pointed out some additional information that we might have glossed over. We really think both of these groups do top notch tool test, Clint’s team at Pro Tool Review is always very detailed and Rob’s Crew are mostly professional contractors with some great insights.  (more…)

Is the Tool Belt Dead?

Construction Workers

When I was younger all the dads had a mustache, they drank Budweiser and pretty much all had the same leather tool belt. Today there are a lot of options for carrying your tools with you no matter what your trade. The Tool Belt is not dead yet, it’s still the staple for keeping tools close at hand but they have certainly evolved and there are now lots and lots of other options, from tool vests, tool aprons, tool backpacks and much more!

Ergodyne recently launched their tool aprons, the most popular version 22 Pocket Canvas Apron 5704 ($23) abrasion resistant, pocket for everything and it distributes the weight much better than your standard similarly priced tool belt. (more…)

Top 10 Power Tool Innovations of 2017

It was actually pretty hard to narrow it down to just 10 as we saw a lot of innovations this year from many many manufacturers. We are sticking with tools that actually hit the shelves and were used by professionals in 2017, not launched at a trade show but won’t be here until 2018 or later. We are just going to do a quick rundown of each as well as talk a little at the end for hopes for this year’s (2018) tool innovations.

Milwaukee Modular Storage

10. Milwaukee PACKOUT Storage System – While storage solutions are nothing new for professional tool brands we do think the PACKOUT system has really changed the game and set the bar much higher for these systems. Much more tough and rugged than other popular systems from Dewalt, Ridgid and even Festool Systainer. The demand has been crazy with back orders possibly out until February. How is this a “Power Tool” innovation? We have seen some M12 FUEL Tools packed into the small PACKOUT already, M18 FUEL will be coming in Larger PACKOUTS very soon at aggressive pricing. Will it change the way we buy and store Power Tools? We have just 1 request for Milwaukee, please make an addition to the lineup with a Roller Cooler. Coptool Post on PACKOUT (more…)
