May 2007 Monthly Roundup for Tool Snob

Roundup.jpgWe had another big month here and checked out a bunch of new tools. By far, the most original was the Quick Angle, a little measuring device with about a hundred uses and huge potential. We also got to test out Porter-Cable's 371K Belt Sander and saw that all the hype is much deserved. But, because it is such an over the top complete package, our Tool of the Month goes to the Ryobi 229-Piece Rotary Tool Kit. It's pretty much guaranteed that you'll have hours and hours of fun with the thing.

Keep checking back, we've got a lot in store for June, especially with Father's Day to think about...
