M18 FUEL Circular Saw 2830-21

Does the circular saw blade belong on the Left or Right side of the saw? Its a question that has plagued mankind since the beginning.

Milwaukee Packout Radio & Storage Expansion NPS19

When Milwaukee announced they were launching a storage system a few years ago most people, even Red Fans were somewhat skeptical. Once launched however PACKOUT has been nothing short of a runaway freight train in terms of popularity, the biggest issue is they just can’t get the products made fast enough or expand the line quickly enough to satisfy it growing fan base!

Pre-Sale for NPS19 tools & accessories are up at Ohio Power Tool with more being added as they come in. Continue reading
