Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Specialty Power Tool Reviews

There are times when tools have a category that’s not broad enough for us to give them their own space. They fall into the corded specialty power tools category. These tools include products like the Kett fiber cement shears and the Camo Edge Pro deck fastening system. We even included the Grizzly Mini Milling Machine Model G8689 and the Festool Conturo edge bander. More than just unique, however, our specialty power tool reviews reveal which tools often fill a much-needed gap. They perform specialized tasks that no other tool can. As a result, they often end up saving time and money for the Pros who use them. Specialty Power Tool Reviews for Pros Other tools that fit this category include the Milwaukee Force Logic Knockout System, various wet saws, and pipe cutters. With the right specialty power tool you can get your work done more quickly, and with less hassle than if you try the same task with the wrong equipment.
