Lenox Tight Space Tubing Cutters 14833TSK

Sometimes the smallest tools can get you out of the biggest jams. The Lenox Tight Space Tubing Cutters 14833TSK serve as a great example. At Sturm Plumbing, we do a lot of repairs to existing work. We often need to work around other plumber’s installations. At least once a week I shake my head in disbelief […]

Lenox 17 Piece Plumbers Hole Saw Kit Review

I love tools. Big tools, small tools, power tools, hand tools, you name it—but I didn’t realize I had such an obsession with tools until I started receiving them in the mail to review. It brought me right back to my childhood…opening Christmas presents and the anticipation of tearing through the wrapping not knowing what […]

Lenox Bi-Metal Utility Bit 5-pc Kit Review

Lenox Bi-Metal Utility Bit 5-pc Kit Review

We’re used to high quality wood bits, but the new Bi-Metal 5-piece kit from Lenox is something that tore into wood faster, with more certainty , and with greater precision than any spade bit or traditional drill bit we’d experienced. We broke out these bits on a rewiring job for an old 1925 Colonial 2-story home. As you can imagine, there were ample opportunities to try out several sizes of bi-metal bits, and we were looking for something that could handle the near-petrified wood that this house was constructed with. After several days of use, we were sold.

Lenox Speed Slot Hole Saws

Lenox Speed Slot Hole Saws Review

Lenox effectively took a tool that has not changed much since its inception and was able add a new level of ease-of-use to their line of Hole Saws with their new Speed Slot. The Speed Slot is a stair stepped angled slot on the side of the hole saw that facilitates easier plug removal. To further improve the Lenox hole saw line, all the hole saws feature an enhanced tooth geometry, a thinner kerf design, and a coating that is supposed to contribute to the efficiency of the cutting process. What all these equates to is a product that just about any professional tradesman will instantly appreciate.

Lenox 8" Diamond Cast Iron Reciprocating Saw Blade Review

Lenox 8 Diamond Cast Iron Reciprocating Saw Blade

Anyone who has ever gone through the process of attempting to update, remove or otherwise cut into cast iron pipe will find a new appreciation for Lenox Diamond reciprocating saw blades. Cast iron is an incredibly dense, thick metal and it is frequently used in older homes for sewage ventilation and drainage. Tying into this pipe entails a cut across 4-inches of the toughest stuff you’re likely to encounter. To accomplish the task, you’ll need much more than a basic metal reciprocating saw blade.

Lenox 21011 TC138 Tubing Cutters Review

The Lenox 21011 TC138 Tubing Cutters will handily cut pipe diameters from 1/8″ to 1-3/8″. We found that the four rollers keep the tubes from threading. The cutters have a “full-stop” feed system that brings up the tool short before the wheels and rollers contact each other. It only takes a screwdriver to change the […]
