A Shipping Scales that Weighs accurately


Accuteck Postal ScaleA Shipping Scales that Weighs accurately

A postal scale is one of those items that doesn’t necessarily get a lot of use, but proves handy to have around when knowing the exact weight of a package and/or letter, or even just weighing an item to get an idea of how much it would cost to ship it, is needed. While there are a ton of options available for consumers, the Accuteck Postal Scale is definitely a strong option to consider, especially if you frequently send out packages and/or anything that requires more than one stamp.

A Powerful Air Impact Wrench

Ingersoll-Rand 231CA Powerful Air Impact Wrench

I needed a impact wrench for rotating my tires. Originally I bought a Harbor Freight Special…… and it wouldn’t turn the lug nut. I bought this baby with my money from a bonus at work and I am very happy.

The Ingersoll-Rand 231C rotated my tires this weekend without a problem! It cmes with high torque, fast, easy on and off with sockets/extensions, and quality construction. It even *sounds* good when you use it. The many professionals who rave about the 231C are right about quality, durability and price.

I’m no soldering expert and will only be using the station occasionally, but by following the instructions to the tee, I was able to complete several small projects. It performed just as advertised. If you’re new at soldering, just follow the instructions and I think you’ll be very happy with the Weller WLC100 Soldering Station.

Most Bang for your Buck rotary tool


Black & Decker RTX-6Using the Black & Decker RTX-6 Rotary Tool

The Black & Decker RTX-6 is one of those fantastic tools that you never knew you needed. A knock-off of the more expensive Dremel motor tool with little to be found wanting. Older Dremel’s were notorious for getting too hot to hold. This tool stays cool even over prolonged operation.

I’ve got to wonder why someone would pay 2 or 3 times the price of the RTX to get a Dremel… I suppose name recognition has a lot to do with it, after all people do refer to these things as “Dremel tools” not “Black and Decker tools”, but that doesn’t seem like a very wise way to make purchases.
