Keter Tool Box

Keter is one of those companies that will surprise you.  I know they have.  We have checked out some other work benches, storage boxes and more.  Each time we were pretty amazed at the design quality that can go into plastic items.  Not only were they designed well, but they were strong and durable.  They recently asked us to take a look at their new Tool Box.  The tool Box is a 22″ tool box, so let’s jump into the Keter Tool Box. Now Dan wasn’t a huge fan of the box, but I think he missed the point...

Ryobi Table Saw Review

If you have ever been to The Home Depot, I am sure you have visited the tool aisle and seen the green colored tools. Ryobi tools are a huge part of the tool department at the store and for a very good reason.  Ryobi is designed for the homeowner.  While the tools are inexpensive, they pack a powerful punch.  Ryobi offers many of the same options you find with the professional tools, but for a fraction of the cost.  We have received a lot of emails about the Ryobi table saw, model RTS21G, so we figured we would get...

Now before I get started talking about this saw, let me just get one thing straight.  If you are a dedicated woodworker, this isn’t the saw for you.  Even if you are getting into woodworking and...

Ryobi Bench Sander BD4601G

I have to say I love having a Bench Sander.  I don’t know how many times I have relied on this type of sander over the years.  For a long time I used the Craftsman Bench sander and was extremely happy with it.  I was recently in the need of a new one and decided to take a look at the Ryobi bench sander since Craftsman seems like it has been going down the tubes over the recent years. As you would expect with any bench grinder, this does have some weight to it.  The unit weighs 53 lbs....
