Power Tool Guides

Finding the right tool for your needs all starts with the right research.  Technology is advancing at record paces.  What was once thought impossible is now possible with the advancements of battery and motor technologies.  A drill that was released last year is now considered obsolete due to smaller motors that produce more torque and batteries that harness more power and run time.  Manufacturers are releasing power tools at record speeds.  So the question remains, what tool is right for you and which manufacturer should you invest with.  Tools in Action is dedicated to empowering you with knowledge through our power tool reviews, breaking news, the Tools in Action community and the Power Tool Forum.  One way we help you become an informed buyer is through this section, the Power Tool Guides.  We have broken out some different categories below to help start your research.  It doesn’t matter if you are ready to buy your first tool or your fiftieth power tool, we have information below to help you make an informed buying decision.  If you are new to the power tool world, a great place to start is the Power Tool Buying Guide and Power Tool Information.
