It’s been a very, very busy week here at Toolmonger, but one thing made us happy: We got to spend some time in the shop.
If you’ve been spending time in the shop, too, and you haven’t had a chance to keep up with Toolmonger this week, we suggest you start with these posts:
The Drill Holster
If you can live without a Batman-style tool belt, these great leather drill holsters’ll let you totally go Clint Eastwood all over that deck project. (They come in nylon, too.)
The “CoBolt” Lever Action Center Cutter
These pint-sized bolt cutters multiply your hand force twenty time to cut the most stubborn wire.
What’s more basic than a good pair of boots? A reader calls our attention to the great experience he had at the Redwing boot factory store, and lots of commenters agree.
Black & Decker’s Low-Cost Laser Level
We picked out this cheap laser level as an alternative to the high-dollar ones for simple tasks.
Black Ice Sandpaper
More consistant grit makes this sandpaper the bomb for wet sanding — or so they claim.
Also, we just posted this week’s The Week in Tools podcast, which is a special “laid back” edition where we invited our friend Joe Brown from PopSci back for a discussion of moving, loading the Yukon with a come-along, and, of course, tools.
