TOP PICK – MagnoGrip Magnetic Carpenter’s Tool Belt

Every handyman has one… their favorite tool belt. One of my favorites is this MagnoGrip magnetic carpenter’s tool belt. It has a total of 12 pockets for storing your tools, it’s made from a strong 1680D ballistic polyester, is a great price, but best of all it has magnetic nail pockets. Most handyman will eventually run into the same problem of dropping nails or screws constantly while their working. This gets old, really fast. Thanks to the magnetized nail pockets, these nail or screw spills are a thing of the past. And the wide mouth pockets stay open for easy reach to whatever you have in them.

TOP PICK – Review – PORTER-CABLE 6-Inch Variable-Speed Polisher

What feels like a long, long time ago… (from 1989 to 1999), I owned a car wash/ detail shop. One of the most important tools that I used on a daily basis was a random orbit variable speed buffer.

Tools like this don’t like getting dropped from 4 feet without something breaking 🙂 After...
