The week in tools

The week in tools

Chuck has the latest week in tools after a brief hiatus!

This week we found a killer inexpensive offset bracket that turns your standard recip saw into a flush-cutting monster – perfect for quick mods to stairs and shelves. We also looked at an inexpensive block plane – you can never have too many planes! – a pair of updated linesman’s pliers, and a $12 drill-press attachment that makes duplicating curved shapes from wood easy. Enjoy Bosch’s new smaller drivers? We do, too, but we’d love to see a better selection in the 10.8V line. We pestered Bosch, and they agreed to listen to Toolmonger readers’ suggestion for how to expand the line. Drop by if you’d like to add your thoughts. And don’t miss our podcast on how to remove the ugly badges from your work truck (or car).
