DriCAT Neck it – Review

I tested and reviewed a very cool gadget from EK Ekcessories a few months ago, called the iCAT Neck It, and I’ve used it at every trade show since, and on a lot of video shoots where I needed my phone handy but needed my hands free.  EK Ekcessories has a whole line of great […]

Vacmaster VWM510 Wall Mount Wet/Dry Vac – Tool Review

According to the Vacmaster website, this is a new tool, but we’ve actually had it for a couple of years.  It’s been mounted to the wall at the office, and it’s been very useful to us.  Our former office was in an old car factory.  It was built in the early 1900s, and while it’s […]

Rockler Glue-Tool / Glue Brush – Tool Review

You say po-tay-to, I say po-tah-to. I’m not really sure why they decided to call this a “Glue-Tool” instead of a “Glue Brush”, but they did. By any other name, it would be just as sweet. This thing rocks! Other than to say it’s worth $3.99, I’ll let the video speak for itself:     […]

Great Stuff Wipes – Review (video)

Great Stuff Wipes If you use Great Stuff Expanding Foam, you probably already know that its strength is its weakness – it’s sticky! It’ll stick everywhere; on the project, on your fingers, on your clothes…you get the point. So did they, apparently, because they’ve introduced these Work Wipes that will take that sticky off the […]

Quick Pick – CobZorb from the 2011 National Hardware Show

While walking the aisles of the National Hardware Show, you see all kinds of products.  Some good, some not so good, but usually it’s the products that provide a simple solution to a problem that do well when introduced to the retail market.  CobZorb is a product that’s been displayed at the show for a […]
