It’s been a busy week here at Toolmonger. If you’ve been spending time in the shop — you should! — and you haven’t had a chance to keep up with Toolmonger this week, we suggest you start with these posts, which our readers helped to select:
Dremel 10.8V Li-Ion Rotary Tool Gets New Batteries
One thing is certain: Toolmongers love their Dremel tools. Every time we write about ’em they make their way right to the top. Now it looks like they’re getting a battery upgrade in the form of new 10.8V batteries.
Bridging The Mud In Your Backyard
This interlocking “bridge” system gives you a patch for walking — or pushing a wheelbarrow through — soft ground without making nasty ruts. And if you haven’t torn up a soft yard with your wheelbarrow yet, you just haven’t been using it enough.
Hands On: Stanley’s Maxlife Mini-Tripod Flashlight
We gave Stanley’s little mini-flashlight with built-in tripod a go in the Toolmonger shop and were happily surprised; it did a great job. And that’s in Sean’s hands. He’s not easy on flashlights.
Hands-On: Irwin’s Quick Adjust Wrench
This isn’t your standard adjustable wrench. Instead of adjusting, it ratchets into position, giving you the ability to move from fastener to fastener without re-adjusting. Of course, it ratchets in fixed increments, so you can’t fit just any fastener. Check out the post for details.
Cure Those Hazy Headlights
My Jeep Grand Cherokee’s headlights fog over once every few years, and this looks like a pretty good solution. Nothing screams “old and ready for replacement” like foggy headlights!
