Guides

Our tool guide section is split up into four different sections.  Our Gift Guide section talks about different gift guides you can buy for your loved ones.  We have a variety of ideas about what power tools to buy, where to buy and what a loved on might like for a present.  The next section is How To's.  In this section, we talk about all different things like how to pick a residential mower, when to use a nail vs a screw and other how-to ideas.  In the tool guide section, we have another category called projects.  The project section is a place where we show you projects we are working on or have worked on in the past.  Do you have a project you want to share?  If so you can share it in the Power Tool Forum or you can contact us and maybe we will post it below.  The last section under Tool Guides is Tool Information.  In this section, you can learn about the different tool and the background, such as the history of Craftsman.
