About Tools in Action

Tools in Action started in 2005 under the name Professional Power Tool Guide.  Our original goal was to create helpful guides and information for professionals and homeowners.  While we still hold true to our original intentions, we have grown to include so much more. Tools in Action is an online publication that is dedicated to the world of power tools, outdoor power equipment (OPE), hand tools, automotive tools, grilling, outdoor products, and more. The website features comprehensive reviews, video demonstrations, how-to guides, and industry news and trends. Our goal is to provide professionals, homeowners, tool enthusiasts, and DIYers with more informative information about various products before they make their purchases. Tools in Action has grown to become a trusted source of information for people all across the world. We communicate and inform buyers through our website, power tool forum, and social media channels. If you would like to learn more, please contact us.
