I have all 4 models
Category: Tool Reviews
I have to admit, I don’t know the first thing about planers. I’m an electrician, I’ve never used one of these, but I was sent one to review so what I’ll do is tell you the specs, rather than try to pretend I have an opinion on the quality of the tool.
Do any of y’all in the electrical field actually use these laser distance measuring tools? I’ve tried many of them, different sizes, brands, displays, distances, but does anyone actually keep them in their pouches and use them day-to-day?
I use rotary hammers quite a bit in the electrical field, usually to get rock walls flat when mounting panels/enclosures, or when drilling out concrete/stone for anchor points. Let’s see how the Ridgid hammer compares.
I’ve been asking for a more compact vacuum for a long time, and Ridgid has finally answered the call. This little vacuum is all I keep on my truck because it fits neatly wherever I need to put it. Let’s open it up and look at what it offers.
TOOL REVIEW – Bosch Carbide Tipped Drill Bit Set for Drilling Natural Stone, Granite, Slate, Ceramic and Glass Tiles
Electricians often work around tile and stone when installing receptacles, so having a unique selection of bits is essential. Let’s check out these carbide-tipped tile bits by Bosch and see how they do.
I’m a daily Sawzall user, and I’m always happy when I get to use a new style or model to see how they compare. Typically I don’t have a lot of opportunities to use Ridgid tools unless they’re sent to me to test, so I’m really happy to get to try this one out!
Today I’m testing out this 70-piece Ryobi impact-driving bit set. When using impact drivers for screwing and drilling you need to have a higher-torque bit that can handle the hammering of the drill motor. A standard bit will work, but the life of your bits is short-lived if you’re not using impact-rated bits with impact drivers.
