Milwaukee FASTBACK II Flip Utility Knife

While this knife has a lot of great features the two that we love most are it’s ability to open very quickly and how it fits in the hand.

Ryobi LED Flashlight RFL905

Ryobi LED Flashlight RFL905

We have been waiting for Ryobi to make another kick ass flashlight since their TEK4. Recently they designed the Ryobi LED Flashlight RFL905 and once again, caught my attention.

The Ryobi RFL905 is the perfect light for shop, garage, home or every day use and carry.  Packed with all the features needed, this well-designed light is compact and covered with rubber over-mold making it easy to grip.

Dewalt FlexVolt Cordless Table Saw

Dewalt Cordless 8-1/4” Table Saw 
A solid, safe table saw is the cornerstone to any efficient job-site or worksite. Dewalt wants to close the gap on a cordless jobsite by introducing several cordless tools including a brand new table saw. We tested the Dewalt Cordless 8-1/4” table saw on our job site and in our shop and were impressed with its portability, versatility, performance and power.

The DEWALT FLEXVOLT Cordless Table Saw is sold for $499.00 here:DEWALT FLEXVOL 60V Max Cordless Table Saw

Milwaukee M18 FUEL Brushless 10-Inch Miter Saw

M18 FUEL Miter Saw

Until now miter saws have been an AC (corded) dominant power tool and for good reason. Trying to get corded performance out of a battery powered miter saw is not easy. And let’s be real, if you can’t work most, if not all day on a cordless power tool then it’s not really a professional grade power tool. We took this saw to several job sites over a few weeks to test and get a good feel for it.
