July 2009 Monthly Roundup for Tool Snob

Thumbnail image for Roundup.jpgWhile we admittedly blew off a lot of last week, we cranked during the other three. At the beginning of the month we were looking at a pretty large back log of tools to review, but now we're only looking at a few (which you'll be seeing in the next week or so).

But of the seven items we reviewed, singling one out for the tool of the month is a difficult task. We really liked the EZY Hang Door Lifter, the Bosch DareDevil bits are fantastic, and both the LogJaws and the CH Nailer have their high points, but the big prize has to go to the Milwaukee 12-Volt Power Port for the simple fact that it has now saved our ass on more than one occasion. Worrying about the charge on our cell phone is now a thing of the past as long as we have this little guy tucked behind the driver's seat.

We also want to thank everyone who chimed in on the Chippewa/Red Wings conversation. Reader Greg was the winner of the random drawing, but all of the comments were very helpful. We've been leaning towards the Red Wing 406s, and PutnamEco's comment may have pushed us over the edge. Thanks guys.
