January 2008 Monthly Roundup for Tool Snob

Roundup.jpgWell, January's come and gone and the post-holiday buzz is over; the tree's packed up, the Christmas cookies have already been eaten, and the gift certificates have all been redeemed. But that doesn't mean you don't need more tools. Of course you do. You may not be able to afford a $1700 miter saw, but Husky's got an Andre-The-Giant-sized flashlight for $40, and there's also Stanley's new mini-screwdriver set for under $3.

Our tool of the month was an easy choice. The JacPac is innovative, easy-to-use, and incredibly handy to have around. Since writing the review, we've used it more and more and it has definitely changed the way we use our nail guns.
