Remember old-school Toolmonger that was all young, dumb and full of… vigor? So do we. Check out what we were discussing a year ago this week:
- We touted GearWrench’s cushion-grip ratchets, released at least year’s SEMA show. TM readers still seem to be split in their love of cushioned grips.
- We previewed Bosch’s 36V drill/driver, a monster that we’ve had in long-term test for a year now. Look for a massive not-to-be-missed hands-on soon. A preview of the hands-on: this is a bad-ass drill that’ll take one hell of a beating. Ours has blood on it. Really.
- Audra reviewed W.R. Case & Sons’ self-published corporate biography, which she found interesting, but lacking in detail on knives, focusing more on the corporate elite.
- We saw pix of Eli with his Toolmonger-won Ridgid tools. Damn, we need to do another giveaway soon, don’t we?
- We posted about Stanley’s FatMax Xtreme 16′ short tape, which we still love. In fact, I’m using a thirty-footer right now.
- Looking for a nice stand for your T-handled hex/Torx wrenches? Snap-on makes one, and it’s actually pretty reasonably priced.
- I still want a Miller Passport — a suitcase-sized MIG welder. How cool is that?
- And we carried Case’s Red CV pocket knives for a month and reported our findings. In short: they’re nice knives.
Of course, you don’t have to wait for us to call out these great old posts. Try plugging your areas of interest into TM’s search engine to turn up hours of old-school TM fun. See you next week.
