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?...

Milwaukee Torpedo Levels

Milwaukee recently came out with two new levels, the Compact Torpedo Level 48-22-5107 and the 10″ Diecast Torpedo Level with 360 Degree Locking Vial 48-22-5210.  I am not going to get into depth on them because, well, they are levels and there is not a whole lot to them.  However, there are some things I wanted to let you know about them and why they might need to be in your tool arsenal.   For the Compact Torpedo, there were two things that caught my attention right away.  First, was the weight.  Not that it weighs a ton, but you can...

Ryobi Workshop Light P781

Ryobi has a ton of tools for their popular 18V lineup.  You can buy them right at your local Home Depot store.  They have a great warranty and they make quality products for their price range.  I have a bunch of Ryobi tools that I love including the Ryobi Garage Door Opener, Bench Sander, cordless sander, fan and my most used tool, the Ryobi inflator.  I think for the price, the lineup and the quality, are tough to beat.  So when I found out that Ryobi had a light, I had to give it a shot.  The light is...

Ring Doorbell Pro – The Home Depot

Aaahhh, the Ring Doorbell.  We have all seen the commercial or know someone who has one.  However if you are not familiar with this system, it’s pretty cool.  It’s basically caller ID for the doorbell.  Remember the days you just had to pick up your phone and never knew who was on the other line?  It always seemed to be a sales person.  Then caller ID came out and our lives and time were saved.  Well the Ring doorbell is exactly the same, but with a twist.  Once someone rings your doorbell, you don’t have to guess who is...

A couple of months ago we showed you the Olala iDisk storage solution.  Well, now they have another version available that is smaller.  We wanted to tell you about.  If you are not familiar with Olala and how they work, let me give you a quick run down.  As you know your iPhone only has so much storage and it get’s eaten up very quickly with pictures and apps.  Yes, you can use online storage, but there are a couple issues with online storage.  First, you must have some sort of internet access to use online storage.  Second, it can eat away...

Looking around at today’s market, you start to wonder who doesn’t make a compressor?  Where ever you look, some manufacturer has a portable compressor ready for someone to buy it up.  Over the years we have seen a ton of different compressors.  For the professional, we love Rolair compressors.  They are tough, quiet and produce a heck of a lot of power for their size.  Since these are made for the professional, they are built to last the abuse of a job site, something a homeowner will never put a compressor through.  So if you are a homeowner, why...
