Empire Levels – True Blue

In today’s market place you can spend a couple of bucks or a couple of hundred dollars on a level.  Both have their pros and cons to each, but what we really need is a level in between.  We need a level that can take a beating, but still stays true and accurate.  With that said, we can narrow down the field, which brings me to one option, the Empire Levels.  Empire Levels have been around since 1919, so it’s safe to say they know what they are doing.  Last year, Milwaukee Tool bought them, which means they now have...

ToolSmart from General Tools – The Simple Solution

As you probably know, General Tools is a sponsor of Tools in Action.  However you should know two things.  First, we never take on a sponsor if we don’t believe in their product.  Number two, we are always objective when we show off sponsor’s products.  Before we jump in and learn about the new line of ToolSmart, I just want to quickly get everyone up to date on General Tools in case you are not familiar with them.  General Tools has been around since 1922.  Back in 1922, they weren’t called General Tools, they went under a different name...
