Thought you read it all in the blog?  Get the inside skinny here as we take it to the next level discussing some of the best tools this week including the Craftsman ratcheting screwdriver (a great tool to take with you to help out a friend with a project), brake spring pliers (that’ll help you save hundreds of dollars on your next brake job), and MAKE’s “warranty voider” (a custom-engraved Leatherman tool perfect for opening electronics and making repairs in the field).  We also discuss our hands-on evaluations of DAP’s “patch stick” drywall repair product and the RIDGID Fuego 6-1/2″ compact framing saw.  Jon VanBergen of TechTronics Industries — the product manager responsible for the Fuego — joins us to give us an overview of the Fuego’s development process.  Also — check in at toolmonger.com to see how you can win your own Fuego by posting your winter project ideas!

This week we’re joined by Joe Brown of Popular Science who takes us through 2006’s tool-heavy Best of What’s New.  Hey, any group that gives “Innovation of the Year” to a nail is cool with us.  We also discuss MAC’s Foose-branded special edition toolkit, GearWrench’s Double-X pliers, Toro’s “Dingo,” Ryobi’s zillion-bit kit, and Empire’s E70 level.  Oh yeah, we also hear about Joe’s experiences riding the NYC subway with a Fubar.
