If you’ve been busy in the shop this week and haven’t had time to keep up with Toolmonger, we recommend checking out the following posts when you have a chance:
Hands-On: The AdobeAir Mobile MasterCool MMB12
With the whole US in the middle of a heat wave, this article is pretty much a must-read. We didn’t see performance anywhere near the company’s claims, but we did see enough to turn a shop from dangerous to bearable.
Laurey’s PerfectMount Guides
This seems like a really simple thing, but try putting on cabinet pulls without one. Ok, you’re probably savvy enough to have been making your own, but for a few bucks, why spend the time?
Hands-On: Irwin/Vise-Grip GrooveLock Pliers
Good stuff. These kick the crap out of your old standard tounge-in-groove pliers, and they’re not that expensive either. Grab yourself a set or two.
A Replacement for the Mini-Buck?
If you’re used to carrying a knife for years, then the company discontinues it, what do you do? You look for a replacement, of course.
Would you be interested in a Toolmonger forum?
Well, we’ve been getting a bunch of email about this, but we aren’t seeing much response from this specific request. If you’re interested, let us know. Otherwise we’re going to hold off for a bit longer on adding a forum.
We’ve got a new project to post next week, as well as updates on some of the projects you’ve already heard about. We’ve also got a lot more hands-on tools to tell you about, so next week’s going to be a great week here on Toolmonger.
