    This Flexible Smart Twister Can Carry Weights Up To 300 Pounds

    Sometimes, you find a new product that can replace a slew of things in your garage and workshop.  This Smart Twister is one of them. A multi-purpose bar, it’s strong enough to serve as a hook for hanging heavy objects, as well as flexible enough to use as a tie strap for binding items together.  Even better, you can shape it yourself any way you like, so you get exactly the kind of hooks and loops you need to accommodate [...]

    Hazet Collapsible Tool Trolley: This Toolbox Turns Into A Mobile Shelf

    You’re working on the car, both arms covered in a sleeveful of grease. You dig into your toolbag to get an O ring sitting in the bottom, smearing the rest of the tools with the same slime all over your arms. Bad idea. The Hazet Collapsible Tool Trolley lets you keep the same tools in one place while avoiding messy results. When closed, it looks like a large toolbox that you can carry with two hands or pull along the ground. When [...]

  • Nomad 883 CNC Mill Minimizes Mess And Noise While Cutting

    Nomad 883 CNC Mill Minimizes Mess And Noise While Cutting

    The Nomad 883 isn’t the first desktop CNC machine to make a play for your tiny workshop space. We have to say, though, it looks a heck of a lot sleeker than previous efforts (e.g. Handibot) we’ve seen. Made by Carbide 3D, it’s a fully-functional CNC machine that’s aimed at novice users, handling all the complexities of traditional CNC machines in the background, so you can focus on just cranking out your designs. It’s designed to work out of the box, [...]

    Raven MPV7100S Combines Lawn Mower, ATV, And Generator In One Machine

    Ride-on mowers and ATVs share enough in common that combining them into a single machine does make some amount of sense.  Just install a blade system that you can attach and detach at will, and you’ve got yourself a ride that can clear large fields one moment and drive around farm roads the next.  That’s exactly what they did with the Raven MPV7100S, a triple-duty workhorse that plays the role of mower, utility vehicle, and even generator. Not only will [...]

  • X-Mat Assembly System Keeps Your Tools And Materials In Place During Shop Projects

    X-Mat Assembly System Keeps Your Tools And Materials In Place During Shop Projects

    Holed workbenches paired with bench dogs and wedges should make a decent enough system to keep wood items in place while you’re working on them. If you’d like something that can grab a hold of more complex stuff for large projects, however, we have a feeling the X-Mat Assembly System can do a more helpful job. Made by Woodpeckers, it’s a modular system for holding practically any item being worked on in place. With a variety of modules for workholding [...]

    MyLifter Is A Semi-Smart Motorized Ceiling Storage Lift System

    There are plenty of options for motorized overhead storage platforms, even more if you’re willing to put in some DIY work yourself. If you’d rather get a set-it-and-forget-it kit to save yourself any extra work, we have a feeling you’ll enjoy MyLifter. For the most part, it’s an erstwhile standard motorized storage set that you can install on the ceiling for various overhead storage needs. Except they integrated a few smart features that should make it a bit more convenient [...]

    Gladiator Chillerator Fridge Is Perfect For Garages, Workshops And Man Caves

  • Handibot Brings CNC Machining To Your Desktop

    Handibot Brings CNC Machining To Your Desktop

    Desktop 3D printers changed prototyping with plastics in a huge way.  And we’re guessing the Handibot Smart Power Tool can do the same for home machining projects. Made by Shop Bot Tools, it’s a portable CNC machine that you control using apps from a smartphone, tablet or PC.  No more visiting machine shops to get your tooling and machining work done — you do the work anywhere you can set up with a table and power outlets, whether it be [...]

    Automaxx Klamp Boasts Auto-Adjust Technology

    If you spend a lot of time in the workshop, locking clamps should be part of your toolset.  How else are you going to keep those slabs of wood in place when your hands are busy hammering, warhammering and otherwise doing whatever you do in the shed?  And while there’s a healthy selection of clamping tools in the market, we’re really quite impressed with these Automaxx Klamps. Made by Kreg Tool, these clamps come with auto-adjusting technology that allows it [...]

Instead of being decked in a coat of paint or varnish, the whole thing gets a dry erase finish.  Yep, just like that board where you doodle your [...]

    In the market for bike racks to hang your pedaled rides up in the living room?  If those industrial-looking mounts don’t look very appealing for that area of the house, maybe you’ll find some appeal in these Trophy Bicycle Holders.
