Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Manufacturer: Craftsman

When we talk about Craftsman tool reviews, we tend to think more about the news. In particular, the 2017 news that Stanley Black and Decker owns Craftsman tools. What that means for the Craftsman brand, no one knows. What we do know entails a stiff climb for Craftsman tools if they want to get back on top of the consumer market. There have been some solid performers like the Craftsman Nextec right angle impact driver. As for modern tools, the Craftsman C3 drill/driver is a bit dated and could use a refresh. Craftsman conductive charging may be something to keep an eye out for. Craftsman Tool Reviews for DIYers and Some Pros While we don’t recommend a lot of Craftsman tools for Pros, our Craftsman tool reviews may be helpful when you want a tool for a short period of time. Until Stanley Black and Decker decides the fate of Craftsman we won’t know exactly what to expect.

Craftsman Professional 10-inch Jobsite Saw

Craftsman Professional Table Saw

In 2010 it will be mandatory for all table saws to have riving knives in order to meet UL approval. Craftsman, while not the first to do so, has added theirs early and done it in a way thatreally makes for some seriously advantageous upgrades to an already decent table saw. The new Craftsman Professional Jobsite Table Saw has a lot of the power and features of a full-size table saw, but in a much more compact and portable design. Regarding portability, a telescoping handle and 6-inch wheels ensures that you can roll this saw around like a piece of luggage.

Craftsman Hammerhead 12V Auto Hammer

Craftsman let us try out their 12V lithium-ion Hammerhead Auto Hammer. If you’ve ever pounded a nail into oblivion, you know that a magical tool that did it for you would be a god-send. Well, the auto-hammer is the first of its kind in the marketplace and aims to change the way consumers hammer nails. The hammerhead is hose- and cord-free and uses the power of a 12 Volt Lithium-ion battery to pound nails up to 3.5-in. in length with the press of a trigger. Coming in at just under 30 ounces, the Hammerhead Auto Hammer is a bit heavier than your typical 20-22 ounce framing hammer, but it didn’t feel unwieldy during use.

Craftsman 4.8 Volt Cordless Screwdriver Review

The Craftsman 4.8 Volt Pistol Screwdriver is a handyman’s (or handywoman’s) “go-to” tool. This rechargeable pistol grip screwdriver is perfect for those around the house jobs for which the big boy tools are simply too darn cumbersome. We tested out this pistol grip screwdriver in a variety of jobs and found it to be long lasting and perfect for most basic projects, provided you didn’t expect much torque or require the finesse of a variable speed drill.
