Attention Mechanics! Milwaukee is expanding their line of Mechanic hand tools. Already in the lineup are Combination Wrenches, Ratcheting Combination Wrenches, Pry Bars, and Hook & Pick Sets! The new Slim Profile Ratchet and Sockets were introduced at the Milwaukee NPS18 event and they’ll make a nice addition to your tool box. Even though Ratchets and sockets are a core hand tool for automotive technicians, all the electricians, mechanical contractors, and other core users could use a set as well! (more…)
When measuring/laying out a job site, how often do you wish for a cloudy day? Sometimes, you don’t hope for anything and just measure early in the morning or later in the evening.

Germany and UK had a turn, it’s time for the U.S to get their palms on it. Introducing the Bosch 12V Max Palm Edge Router GKF12V-25 ($159)! This lightweight, ergonomic router offers 13,000 RPM, great run time and consistent performance.
I’ll say it up front, and I’m sorry if you don’t agree. A circular saw is meant to be cordless. Milwaukee Tool is pushing to “cut the cord” with the new 12.0 Ah batteries. Available this July for only $399, the M18 7-1/4″ Circ Saw Kit with the POWERSTATE brushless motor provides 5,800RPM and offers up to 750 cuts per charge. (more…)
As Safety Stand Down Week comes to an end today, let’s take some time to think about fall protection and what we can do to prevent injury or death on the job site. Seriously, take the proper precautions to go home the same way you came in.
