Right on time, Chuck has the week in tools -

This week we put a new lightweight mobile workstation to the test to determine whether a carefully-designed aluminum and plastic rig (that converts into a two-wheel dolly and has on-board power as well) can replace your trusty wood-and-steel clamping table. In our tests it held 946+ pounds! We also checked out a tap-and-die set with a sweet ratcheting T-handle and tried out Dremel’s on-shelves-soon Multi-Vise. (If you use your rotary tools a lot, you’ll get a kick out of how you can remove the Multi-Vise’s clamp and install a rotary tool in its place so you can hold your workpiece instead of the tool.) TM readers weighed in this week on cheap plastic miter boxes — thumbs up for value, but buy a metal one if you can afford it – and we came across a big-rig-driver’s favorite boot brush that we wish we’d have found sooner.
