Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Corded Saw Reviews

Corded saws are part of every jobsite that involves framing, trim, or carpentry work. Our corded saw reviews include miter saws, circular saws, jig saws, and table saws. We also review other types of cutting saws like tile saws and metal cutting tools. A saw always needs to be powerful, so we look for corded saws that cut without losing speed or power. More than that, however, a good saw will have plenty of cut capacity, and features that set it apart. That might be a rear fence with tall base support on a miter, or a great fence on a table saw. Corded Saw Reviews for Pros Our Best portable jobsite table saw shootout is a great example of the types of articles you can find here. A similar example is the Compact miter saw shootout. In terms of popular articles, try the Ridgid MS255SR 10-inch dual bevel miter saw review or check out 5 Essential Table Saw Safety Tips from the Pros.

Delta Cruzer Miter Saw Review | 10-inch 26-2240

No one can argue that a miter saw is a must-have tool for the professional woodworker or carpenter. Whether cross-cutting stair treads or burning through some 8-inch crown molding, a quality miter saw is a money maker. At the shop, we currently have several of (what we feel are) the best miter saws on the […]

Skilsaw Table Saw Video Review SPT99-12

When Skilsaw delivered their heavy-duty table saw to our shop, I wondered just how much of a difference moving from the 70-series to the 99-series motor would really make. Skilsaw’s original worm drive table saw is lightweight and reasonably powerful. So does the heavy-duty Skilsaw table saw offer enough extra muscle and features to make […]

Skilsaw SPT99-12 Heavy-Duty Worm Drive Table Saw

So we’ve spent some time with the new Skilsaw SPT99-12 Heavy-Duty Worm Drive Table Saw to see what’s different from Skilsaw’s first worm drive table saw and where it fits in the realm of jobsite table saws. There’s a lot to love on the original model, mainly the lightweight portability, stable stand, and mid-range power. […]

Hitachi 10-Inch Jobsite Table Saw

Hitachi Table Saw C10RJ Review

The marketplace determined a while back that professional job site table saws should feature 10-inch blades powered by 15-amp motors with convenient, folding stands with wheels for transport and storage. There are exceptions to the rule but, by-and-large, that’s what you’ll find. Yet Pro table saws are different in rip capacity, fence design, build quality, […]

Skilsaw 13-Amp Reciprocating Saw with Buzzkill Technology

Skilsaw 13-Amp Reciprocating Saw with Buzzkill Technology Video Review

The new Skilsaw 13-Amp Reciprocating Saw with Buzzkill Technology is a tool that packs performance we haven’t seen before. But not in a fast-cutting kind of way. The performance we’re talking about is the impressive vibration reduction that comes with the Buzzkill technology. What’s at work is a full-frame counterbalance mechanism that’s much longer than most […]

Skilsaw Buzzkill 13-Amp Reciprocating Saw

Skilsaw Buzzkill 13-Amp Reciprocating Saw Review

The Skilsaw Buzzkill reciprocating saw is looking to turn this demo tool class on its head. But before we get too far into it, its given name is the Skilsaw 13-Amp Reciprocating Saw with Buzzkill Technology. But Buzzkill is such a cool name that I imagine most people will go with that. Or maybe just Buzz. […]
