Using DeWalt Tool Connect: The Definitive Guide

Using DeWalt Tool Connect: The Definitive Guide

Become a Chef Without the Hassle of Learning How to Cook! I’m pretty competent in the kitchen, but by no means could I be classified as a “really good cook.” Basically, I know how to follow directions the first time I run through a recipe, and then I generally just kind of ad-lib my way […]

Nova Voyager DVR Drill Press 58000

If you’re into any kind of shop work, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of the Nova Voyager DVR Drill Press. It’s a smart drill press that goes way beyond adding electronics to its feature set.
