Wilton BASH Sledghammers

I am not a fan of wood handled sledge hammers.  They can easily get damaged when an over strike occurs.  Luckily Wilton has come along and given us the BASH unbreakable sledgehammer.  They have engineered molten steel bars into the handle that holds the head with a steel plate.  The handle has a rubber over-mold that helps grip the hammer when in use.  Check them out on Amazon....

When in the hitch of your truck it has set screws so you can...

Wilton – 745 5″ Mechanics Vise 21400 – Review

A bench vise has many uses and is a must have in any garage or workshop.  Wilton makes some good vises and we recently came across the 745 5″ vise.  It has a 5″ Jaw Width, 5-1/4″ Jaw Opening and a 3-3/4″ Throat Depth.  The swivel base moves freely and quickly locks via double lock downs.  Both the steel top and pipe jaws are easily replaceable with a Phillips screwdriver. This vise was built to last and has a quality powder coat finish.  There is no need to grease this vise, it uses a permanently sealed system.  Basically the grease stays in the shaft...
