Weather Guard Truck Box Review – Saddle Box Style

Having a truck for work is crucial.  On any given day, you have no idea what you will be hauling around.  Having the bed in the back is great and makes your life so much easier.  However, there is one small problem or price we have to pay for the ability to have an open bed.  We lose the ability to securely store and transport certain items.  Now if you have a crew cab, sure you have some room to lock up your tools, but for a single cab, how do you lock your stuff up and protect it?  As...

Weather Guard Remote – Quick Draw Remote Access System

If you have been following Tools in Action for a while, you know we are huge fans of Weather Guard truck boxes.  In fact, they have won a couple of TIA awards over the years.  These boxes are tough and as the name implies, they protect your things from the weather.  In our opinion, there isn’t any other box on the market that is built to the high-quality standards as Weather Guard.  As much as we love Weather Guard, that’s not why we are here today.  Well, actually it’s part of the reason.  But we recently found out Weather Guard...

Bosch Hammer Drill HDH183 and Drill Driver DDH183

If you have been following me for a while, you know I am a huge fan of Bosch.  In fact, people have accused me of being a Bosch fanboy.  I am not really sure how to answer that.  When a company makes great products, how can you not appreciate their products?  I have been using Bosch ever since 1991 and have never had any issues with their products.  We have been beating them up over the years and they last.  A buddy of mine leaves his drill in the bed of his truck.  Doesn’t matter if it rains or snows,...

Milwaukee Cut Out Tool – M18 Power 2627

Another new addition to Milwaukee’s huge line up of 18 volt tools, the Milwaukee Cut Out Tool.  As you probably know, cut out tools are a huge time saver.  No more getting your drywall knife out and having to cut around a box or door.  Instead you can use a cut out tool to make quick work and move on to your next sheet of rock.  A cut out tool is probably the most used tool by a drywaller.  Yes, they use a drywall gun just as much, but as you will see soon, Milwaukee has that also.  Milwaukee...

Bradly BMP21-PLUS Label Printer

I am an organizational freak.  If something is out of place, I am lost.  Which is funny because Dan and I are complete opposites.  Just look at our garages and you will see what I mean.  However, when it comes to label makers, we are both in the same boat.  We want something that is easy, tough and allows us to put labels on our tool box drawers. Recently we discovered a company called Bradly, which obviously they make label makers.  We saw one that caught our eye, the BMP21-Plus.  The label maker looked tough and looked like it...

Milwaukee Tool Long Tapes

Milwaukee has had tape measures out for a couple of years, so measuring isn’t new to Milwaukee. However, they recently came out with some long tapes which I know people have been waiting for.  It’s great to have a nice tape measure, but there are times when we just need to measure something in great length where an LDM might not be a fit.  So Milwaukee came out with a couple new long tapes, the Milwaukee 100Ft Closed Reel Long Tape 48-22-5101 and the Milwaukee 100Ft Open Reel Long Tape48-22-5201. Milwaukee Tool 100Ft Open Reel Long Tape 48-22-5201 For most of...

Ryobi Light P727 Workbench Light

The more and more I get my hands on Ryobi, the more I am loving this brand.  For me, it’s amazing how many tools they have in their 18V lineup.  Not only do they have a ton of tools, but they are quality tools that won’t break the bank.  We have never had any issues with their tools or batteries.  For the homeowner, I really don’t think there is a better option than Ryobi.  As a homeowner, why would you want to spend $200 on a drill when you could buy a Ryobi for a 3rd of the cost?...
