  • Bosch and DeWalt Angle Grinders

    As a professional wood carver, I've had a 4-1/2-inch or 5-inch angle grinder with a carving disc attachment in my hands for six to eight hours a day for the last eight years.

Most of these hammerdrill models switch functions by dialing in the hammer symbol on the clutch setting ring...

  • Station Masters

    No matter what you build or how you organize your crew, you can't go wrong setting up a central cutting station. You may be like me and work on top of an old door with folding legs, or work on 2x12 planks set on sawhorses. But if you get tired of rebuilding these job-built stations, or worse--if...
