A few months back, we had 26 different corded and cordless oscillating tool models in-house for our Multi-tool Shootout Review. A good time was had by all, and we got a pretty good handle on what the lay of the land looks like for the oscillating tool market. After the results from the shootout publish, […]

Rockwell Jawhorse and Sheetmaster Review

By now everyone has seen the infomercials for the Rockwell JawHorse and either has one or wonders if they need one. But in case you haven’t seen it, let me describe the JawHorse. It’s basically a vise mounted to a stair-stepper machine. You might also consider it half of an exercise bike with clamps for […]

Rockwell Compact Circular Saw 4-1/2″

There’s a new 4-1/2″ Rockwell Compact Circular Saw. I love the convenience, weight reduction, and versatility of compact tools.  If you’re like me though, that immediately sparks some questions.

2013 Pro Tool Innovation Awards – Corded Tools

Rockwell RK2600K2 16V Max Cordless Drill Driver Preview

Rockwell RK2611K2 16V Max Impact Driver Preview

When we saw the new”Max” designation for Rockwell’s latest 16V line, we knew the drill (yes, pun intended). The DeWalt 20V Max tools line represents the peak output before the voltage drops to the nominal 18V. In other words, most 18V lithium-ion tools are “20V max” in the way that most 12V tools are really […]
