The world’s most amazing marble machine

The amazing marble machine
While surfing the Internet I came across a stunning video of a Swedish musician who’s made a machine that plays music. I’m not talking about the latest iPhone or stereo system here. I’m talking about a completely homemade machine powered by the maker, who can also program it to play a wide range of sounds that make up songs.

Why you need an impact driver

Impact driver
Today, most manufacturers produce a drill and impact driver kit that offers great value, even when compared to the single drill kit options on the market. But why do you need to own two “drills”? They all do essentially the same thing, right? What is all the fuss about? Is an impact just a drill with a handy quick-change chuck made to take screwdriver bits? The answer is no, it’s not a gimmick to get you to buy another drill with a different chuck. 

There’s no doubt that the impact driver is one of the most popular cordless tools on the market today, second only to the drill. Learn how you can benefit from having one on your shelf.

Product review:

Worxsaw cordless compact circular saw

Bigger can be better in some situations, but not always. Sometimes less can be more. The new Worxsaw cordless compact circular saw is a case in point.

At just over 4-1/2 pounds it's about half the weight of a typical 7-1/4" (and even a 6-1/2") circ saw.
