Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


iQ Power Tools Dry Cut Masonry Saw

iQ Power Tools Dry Cut Masonry Saw Video Review

The iQ Power Tools iQMS362 is the world’s first 16.5” dry cut masonry saw with integrated dust collection. Pro Tool Reviews checked out the iQTS244 Dry Cut Tile Saw—which really changes the way you think about cutting tile. No water. Very little cleanup. Before their tile saw, iQ Power Tools addressed dry brick and block cutting with […]

Skilsaw Dry Cut Metal Saw Review

I’ve been using dry-cut metal circular saws similar to the new Skilsaw Dry Cut Metal Saw (SPT62MTC-22) for several years. Primarily, I cut ten-gauge steel sheets and work with a few custom jigs I built for steel tubing. I use my horizontal bandsaw for the bulk of my 90º cuts. The bandsaw, however, is a slow […]

Festool Domino Connector Range

Festool Domino Connectors KV-SYS D8

In a perfect world, we’d conveniently build furniture and casework at our shops with the workflow set up just the way we like it. Then we’d pack it up for easy transport, unload it without a hitch, and carry it gently to its installation point. What a breeze, right? That’s a far cry from reality, […]

Evolutioin EVOSAW380 15-Inch Steel Cutting Chop Saw

Evolution EVOSAW380 Review

I’ve recently ventured into owning dry-cut metal saws instead of abrasive cutoff saws. The fast cuts, burr-free results, accurate alignment, and non-diminishing blade size (abrasive wheels shrink as you use them up) make dry cut saws like the Evolution EVOSAW380 a clear winner. It’s one of our favorite types of miter saws. Although the blades […]

Skilsaw Outlaw Metal Saw

Skilsaw Outlaw Worm Drive Metal Saw SPT78MMC-22

Skilsaw’s worm drive hand-held circular saws have been around for almost 100 years now. They were so widely used by the professional tradesman for so long that the word “Skilsaw” had become synonymous with “circular saw” (like Sawzall and the reciprocating saw). However, in recent years the Skil brand became diluted with stocking stuffer, multi-use, […]

LEX 3 Air Sander

Festool LEX 3 Air Sanders Review

Hi, my name is Jon and I am addicted to air sanders… About four years ago, while looking for a 12-step program or support group for my problem, I ended up purchasing a large compressor to support my habit of powering a few sanders at a time. I was committed; I piped my whole shop […]

Multi-Jetstream

Festool ETS EC Brushless Sanders Review

Sanding was one of those woodworking steps that always seemed an easy part of the finishing process… that is, until I started selling my pieces professionally and looking more closely at the detail in my finished product. I had no idea how difficult it was to achieve a smooth, flat, consistent, swirl-free finish on a […]

Triton TRA001 on Tool Hanger

Triton TRA001 Plunge Router Review

The first time I heard of Triton power tools was when I came across the Torque Work Centre. In the product details it mentions that there’s an accessory that attaches Triton routers to the Work Centre. I remember thinking, “What’s a Triton router?” In doing a quick Internet search to find that not only were […]
