January 2009 Monthly Round Up for Tool Snob
Other than the relentless snow blowing, we had a very good January around here. Keeping the driveway clear makes us sympathize with Sisyphus and his big, dumb boulder. Each time we chip away the last bit of ice, we look up and see the first flakes of the next storm.
As far as tools go, we reviewed a bunch of interesting ones this month, including the Rockwell Jawhorse, Gorilla's new Super Glue, and the Craftsman Auto Hammer. But even against these tough competitors, our tool of the month this time around is going to the one-two punch of the Arbortech Mini-Grinder and Power Chisel. Taken alone, each of these tools is a wonderful addition to anyone's shop (particularly those interested in wood carving), but when looked at together, they make a very complimentary duo. One chisels, the other grinds, both with amazing precision and strength. We loved these tools when we wrote about them and since then we've kept using them and have only found more and more uses for them.
