TNT, Round 19: Power Rangers

Our latest TNT (Tips-n-tools) is up, check it out, sign up and read more from Arwen –

If you haven’t felt the first whiff of summer approaching (although I must admit that here in San Francisco it’s hard to imagine), get up from your workbench and step outside. This round of TNT reviews is all about power, whether it’s saving it or finding creative ways to use it.

I’ve been hearing more and more about power consumption, and the gadgets that are being created to track it and reduce it. While a part of me fears that these will just be added to the huge piles of unnecessary junk in everyone’s drawers, if they can truly help you be more efficient, I’m all for it. Below, I point to two recent blog posts on just this topic, as well as to another blog that’s all about power consumption. There are also a few tips and tools to help you save time: a tool that won’t have you in knots trying to tighten ropes, an easy reuse project creating a light box for photographing your latest projects, a pre-fab workbench that really works to help keep you organized, and then few tools to make the most of your BBQ. Thanks to the TNT readers who sent in reviews! So get ready for a cool (or is it hot?) summer. TNT, Round 19: Power Rangers – Link & sign up.
