Milwaukee M18 Fuel 7-1/4" Miter Saw

Milwaukee M18 Fuel 7-1/4″ Miter Saw Review

It’s really happening: cordlessness is coming to a miter saw near you (it might very well have already). That was unthinkable just a few years ago. Sure, you can get a lot of power and runtime out of an 18V drill and it sure is nice to use a reciprocating saw without a cord. But […]

Milwaukee M18 Search Light

Milwaukee 2354 M18 Search Light Review

In our recent review of Milwaukee’s M12 Compact Flood Light, the Rover, we talked about the strength of Milwaukee’s lighting solutions and how impressed we are with that little light. Now we have the chance to review a larger, more traditional-looking flashlight in the company’s M18 line, the Milwaukee M18 Search Light. You might be […]

Milwaukee M12 Rover Compact Flood Light

Milwaukee M12 Rover Compact Flood Light

A particular bright spot in Milwaukee Tool’s excellent product offering is its lighting lineup. The company seems to have a particular proficiency in jobsite illumination and it makes sense. If you can’t work safely in dim to dark conditions, then you can’t use any of Milwaukee’s other tools, either! Built upon its strong lithium-ion battery and LED […]

Paslode PowerMaster Pro 30-Degree Framing Nailer

Paslode PowerMaster Pro 30-Degree Framing Nailer

It’s not as easy to distinguish among framing nailers as it is among other tools like drills or saws. For some reason, the differences just don’t seem to jump out as quickly. It could be that innovation in this category is closer to being fully developed than in other categories and – as you may […]

Portamate Portacube STR Miter Saw Work Station

Portamate Portacube STR Miter Saw Work Station

Many challenges accompany our work. Perhaps the most common is creating a sufficiently large and conveniently located work surface so we’re not setting tools all over the ground/floor and not spending time walking back and forth all over the jobsite. The solution is usually to make a large work surface out of some sawhorses and […]

Everwin 2-1/2-Inch Coil Siding Nailer

Everwin Coil Siding Nailer SCN65

Don’t you love the smell of new tool features in the morning? We’ve come to expect coil nailers to remain generally the same with only marginal tinkering, but Everwin set out to prove us wrong. Since we like better tools, hopefully, Everwin hit the nail on the head with the Everwin Coil Siding Nailer. Although the Taiwanese company […]

Walls Workwear Jack-Shirt with Kevlar

Walls Workwear Jack-Shirt with Kevlar

For all of the oppressive summer (and sometimes fall) heat in Central Florida, the Pros here rarely have to worry about bundling up to get the job done. But there are times when we need workwear appropriate for chilly temperatures. You know, for the few days that dip below 60 degrees! Late winter and early […]
