March 2007 Monthly Roundup for Tool Snob

Roundup.jpgThere is no doubt that the high point of our month was going to the JLC Live trade show in Providence, RI. We met a lot of great people and saw some really interesting tools, some of which we’re looking forward to reviewing in the upcoming days. And thanks to Skil, we got a chance to review their amazing Octo Sander, a tool that would be a nice addition to any workshop. Speaking of workshops, we found this guy, who used a pretty interesting method of redesigning his workshop. We also found a video of the safest table saw ever made (make sure to check this one out), as well as this very helpful Spring Home Maintenance Checklist.

This next month, we’re going to be reviewing Ridgid’s 6-1/2" Fuego Framing Saw, Microplane’s Stainless Steel Sanding Discs, a few books from Taunton press, and a whole lot more that we’re going to keep to ourselves for now.
