    Actually the Irwin Turbomax is designed for metal cutting in much the way Dewalt Pilot Point bits are. Not to be confused with brad point bits which are designed specifically for wood. I have found...

    I have had a Deere 425ZT for nearly ten years with little to no problems. Only 250 hours on it as I have a fairly small yard.

    When using sch 80 grey PVC, I pull the wire as I go, pushing it one section at a time, avoiding having to use a pull string. Last couple of projects included RG 11 from the pole to house, sprinkler...

    Back in the days when TV remotes only had a few buttons and were quite small, they would constantly get lost in the couch cushions. I finally glued a 12" piece of colorful ski rope to the remote so...

    I installed exactly one Blum servo drive in a trash/recycle bin in my son's kitchen. Probably no more experience than if I had stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. All it does is give a nudge to the...

    11 years is not a bad life for electronics in this age. Toss it and move on.

    I have used plenty of cheap lousy paints, and Behr isn't one of them. My only problem with Consumer's Reports is that they seem anti-American when it comes to car reviews. Being from the Motor City...

    I recently bought motion detecting light switches for church. One restroom had a fan. At HD I noticed they had one motion detection room switch rated for light motor use. Seems to be working fine....

    Painting ceilings is the worst. You are generally putting white over white and very difficult to see your coverage. Tough on the arms and neck. Both Valspar and Glidden (and I presume others) make...

    For running normal air tools up to a 1" rattle gun, 1/2" will be fine unless you have crazy long runs of pipe. The only thing I can think of that might need more air is a big sandblaster, but then...

    I have made the same mistake more than once. Step one is to scrape off the excess rust with a razor blade scraper, then hit it with WD40 and go at it with a grey abrasive pad. Still end up with a...

    That was one reason my last framing job (2000 sf basement) was done with metal channels and studs. It is a joy to find an old stud with tight grain. Especially one with a turpentine smell.
