Bosch Flexiclick drill with attachments

Bosch 18V FlexiClick Multi-Head Drill Driver Review

The Bosch 18V Flexiclick Drill/Driver (the Chameleon) presents a big dilemma for those Pros that are heavily invested in or partial to a different platform. With the recent addition of the SDS-Plus attachment, the Bosch GSR18V-535FCB15 doesn’t just excel at cabinetry, casework, and all other tight-spot drilling and driving, but also at light masonry tasks, […]

Ridgid 18V JobMax Octane cuts

Ridgid Octane JobMax Multi-Tool Review

We think of the Ridgid Octane JobMax Multi-Tool like this: Buy it for the oscillating tool. Then, benefit from the whole 7-tool suite if you decide to purchase the other heads separately. Having already played with the Ridgid 18V JobMax multi-tool, the Octane “big brother” oscillating tool and sander came in handy on the job […]

Metabo HPT 18ga Narrow Crown Stapler

Metabo HPT N3804A5 18ga Narrow Crown Stapler Review

The Metabo HPT 18ga Narrow Crown Stapler (N3804A5) is technically a new tool but it’s backed up by the fine pedigree of Hitachi nailers. We use this kind of stapler to install soffits where a brad nail would pass through the material completely. Of course, there are many woodworking, production work, and upholstery applications, too. […]

Metabo HPT MultiVolt table saw guard

Metabo HPT 10-inch MultiVolt Table Saw Review C3610DRJQ4

The Metabo HPT 10-inch MultiVolt Table Saw doesn’t need to compromise on cutting capacity or power because it offers both 36V battery and AC options. We’ve used this table saw to build a bar in an Orlando restaurant, trim out several jobs, and even cut up a stack of pressure-treated wood for making gate posts. […]

Ridgid Octane 7-inch Grinder Review

The Ridgid Octane 7-inch Grinder can run on standard Ridgid 18V packs, but the Octane platform gives it beastly power. But power isn’t the only thing beastly about the Ridgid R88040B – look at the size of the thing! Here’s what we’ve found out about it during our daily grind. Pros Lots of power on […]

Everwin Coil Framing Nailer FCN90

Everwin Coil Framing Nailer FCN90

The Everwin Coil Framing Nailer dubs itself the most compact 3-1/2 inch coil framing nailer on the market. The FCN90 model number differs slightly from the 2017 Pro Tool Innovation Award-winning FCN90L, which is the lightest coil framer available. Our crew put this Everwin framing tool to the test on many jobs over the last few […]
