Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Test and Measurement Reviews

Our test and measurement reviews address those products suitable for electrical and mechanical evaluation and testing. When diagnosing systems and components, these tools are invaluable. They must also have the features and durability to work well on the jobsite. We review electrical tools like circuit testers, multimeters, clamp meters, video inspection cameras, IR thermometers, and more. Our goal is to help electricians know which tools will get the job done quickly. We test and evaluate all of the most recent and popular tools from Klein Tools, Southwire, Greenlee, FLIR, and others. This lets us reveal which tools perform at better-than-average levels. Test and Measurement Reviews in the Field It may sound odd to be “testing” test and measurement tools, however manufacturer specifications only tell part of the story. The newest smart multimeters are using Bluetooth technology, and even circuit breaker finders and clamp meters are getting smarter. Rather than rely on manufacturer specs and marketing materials, Pro Tool Reviews determines whether productivity features are beneficial or just marketing.

Weller WLC100 40-watt Soldering Station

Weller WLC100 40-watt soldering station Review

The Weller WLC100 consumer-level soldering station is a great first soldering station for any hobbyist or DIYer that plans to perform basic, non-precision soldering tasks. Weller provides a bargain product for those who may want the advantage of replaceable heating elements and soldering tips and variable power (this unit goes from 5W to 40W via the 4-step front dial). A convenient iron stand an integrated tip-cleaning sponge tray makes this a nice all-around unit.
