Not everyone waits until STAFDA to release new products – at least among the major manufacturers. But Makita is launching their new AWS system for cordless connectivity to a dust extractor and it’s a pretty big deal.

As usual, Diablo shows off their latest and greatest, including a big expansion in recip saw blades. Southwire gives us a closer look at their new Made in the USA hand tools while Milwaukee touts the latest in storage.

We’re excited about Hitachi is doing in the cordless nailer space, Skilsaw’s Buzzkill technology shows off more detail about its inner workings, and Klein is crossing over into several new trades with just one tool.
