Craftsman 11812 NEXTEC 12V 3/8-Inch Drill/Driver Review

Dremel Multi-Max 6300 scraper

Dremel Multi-Max 6300 Oscillating Tool Kit Review

Anyone who is even minimally into tools has heard of Dremel. They make all sorts of polishing and cutting tools based on a rotary design. When Fein’s exclusive patent on their oscillating tool expired last year and other manufacturers were allowed to manufacture similar devices, Dremel was first on-board. Sure, an oscillating tool only rotates a total of 3 degrees, but it’s still technically a rotary tool, right? Not really, but who cares, these are very cool tools that do things no other tools on the market can do. With Dremel bringing theirs to market at under $100, they have made this tool very accessible to consumers.

DeWalt DC750KA Review

DeWalt redesigned their 9.6V DC750KA cordless drill and the new model offers better balance and an improved clutch system for those do-it-yourself projects around the home.
