New Dewalt Impact Sockets, Sets and Accessories, Plus Greater Hand Tool Expansion

http://toolguyd.com/dewalt-impact-sockets-sets-accessories-plus-hand-tool-teaser/ When Dewalt came out with a new impact wrench, I searched and I searched, but I could not find any Dewalt impact sockets aside from a couple of sizes intended for drill and driver use. Things are different now. I recently spotted dozens of new SKUs, for Dewalt impact socket sets, drive accessories, and individual sockets. Some sets come with a Dewalt stackable organizer box, such as this 3/8″ and 1/2″ universal, extension, and adapter set. Others, like the 28 piece 1/2″ SAE set shown above, come in a blow molded case.

http://professional-power-tool-guide.com/2017/01/milwaukee-inspection-camera-m12-m-spector-flex-2317/You probably know that Milwaukee Tool has a couple different inspection cameras available.  In fact we reviewed the 2314 back in 2014.  The 2314 is a great camera and for the price, it’s hard to beat.  An inspection camera is good for all most any professional tradesman.  It’s useful for plumbers, inspectors, electricians, HVAC and the list goes on.  However for a camera to be truly useful, you need a quality camera, that has a great image so you know what you are looking at and it has to be…

New Carbide Woodturning Tools at Lee Valley

http://toolguyd.com/carbide-woodturning-tools-at-lee-valley/ Lee Valley has started carrying a set of 3 carbide-tipped woodturning tools. The set also comes with a full set of replacement carbide inserts. As these tools are only 11″ long, they are intended for use on smaller turnings. They have beech handles and shafts that have been flattened on the bottom side for sitting squarely on the lathe tool rest. The big advantage of using an insert tool is that when the edge gets dull, you can just rotate the insert and keep turning with a fresh edge. When…

New Festool Sortainer Tool Box

http://toolguyd.com/new-festool-sortainer-tool-box/ Festool somewhat recently came out with a new Sortainer small parts tool box, model 200119. The new Sortainer is a bit different from the other models in the lineup, featuring 3 large full-width drawers. Here’s a look at one of the other/older Sortainers: The new Sortainer is taller, as tall as a Systainer 4, and is compatible with T-Loc Systainers. See Also: Festool Sortainer Review I recently bought 2 of these new Sortainers, but have not yet figured out what I’d use them for. Probably small tool storage, or maybe for small photography…
