Hilti PDC – The Perfect Laser Range Meter

I have to be honest.  I have been sitting in front of this article staring at the screen for the past 10 minutes.  I really have no idea where to begin because I have so much I want to tell you about the Hilti PDC Laser Range Meter.  When I first discovered this tool from Hilti, I knew I had to get my hands on it because I knew it was special and one of a kind.  This is a product the market has needed for years and now it’s finally here.  Before I begin, I just want to give you...

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...

Bosch GLM 50 C – Bluetooth Laser Measure

I know I am going to sound like a broken record, but I don’t care.  When it comes to levels and measuring, Bosch is the company to beat.  Not only do they make reliable, durable and accurate measuring tools, but they offer a huge variety of them.  While most companies will develop maybe one or two laser distant measures (LDM), but Bosch goes one step further.  They know people use LDMs for all sorts of things.  While one user might want all the bells and whistles, another user might just want something smaller to take a quick measurement.  So...

Bosch GIM 120 – 48″ Digital Level

When it comes to levels and measuring, no one beats Bosch.  They have the quality, experience, reliability and accuracy that no one can top. Back in February we had a chance to take a look at some of their new measuring tools and the Bosch GIM 120 was one of these tools we saw first hand.  We get a ton of emails about which tools to buy.  As you know, there are a ton of manufacturers available and a lot of the tools are pretty much the same, so it can be hard to recommend one specific tool.  However...

Milwaukee 12:1 Infrared Temp-Gun 2268-20

Milwaukee recently introduced their new line of infrared Temp-Guns.  The one we are taking a look at today is the 12:1 model 2268-20 temp gun.  This new tool has a clearer and faster scanning process.  Milwaukee has been making temp guns for a while and I have to say you get a great temp gun for a reasonable price compared to their competition. While some temp guns are only good for indoor or outdoor use, this one is designed to be used in either area.  The protected LCD screen is easy to read, plus a back-lit LED screen helps...
