April 2007 Monthly Roundup for Tool Snob

Roundup.jpgWe had a lot going on here this month at Tool Snob; reading about tools, using tools, reviewing tools…

Without question the tool of the month is the Ridgid Fuego, a great little circular saw that hasn’t left our side since it showed up on the doorstep. An honorable mention goes to, not a tool, but a book. Setting Up Shop is essential reading for any woodworker, hobbyist, or DIYer. And don’t think it’s just for people with $3,000 table saws. It’s not. In fact it’s really for people with small shops who are looking for creative ways to manage their space.

We’re looking forward to this next month. We’re in the process of reviewing the Quick Angle and we’re expecting Porter-Cable’s 371K mini belt sander any day now.
