Trying out the DeWalt DC011 AC/DC Radio Charger

Neil’s already blogged about the lack of music in the Toolstop offices and how he unpacked the DeWalt DC011 AC/DC Radio Charger.

Well, we also shot a video highlight some of the feature of this piece of jobsite kit.

Look what happens when…

…you pour water over a Draper Expert Water Resistant Storage Case. (Oh, and we drop it, too.)

This is a really robust accessory which we feel will be essential for anyone who regularly carries electronic kit such as laptops, GPS units, etc with them but has to work outside face with the elements.

Here’s a question for you, though; how would you have tested this case?

First Look Photos – Bosch GSB 16 RE Impact Drill

As it was another fantastic day weather-wise at the Toolstop office we were delighted to shoot a First Look video of the new Bosch GSB 16 RE Impact Drill.

It’s a great looking piece of kit and it made short work drilling into our block of concrete.

We particularly liked the innovative auxiliary handle. This is a handle that actually locks in every 30 degrees and simply won’t move no matter how much muscle you’re putting into the drilling.

Bosch state that it drills up to 33% faster than the competitors when drilling into concrete. We certainly found it drilled like a dream into our block of concrete.

We sell the drill with charger, depth stop, carry case, auxiliary handle and auto lock keyless chuck.

First Look – Bosch GDS 14.4V-Li Professional Impact Wrench

Another brand new Bosch power tool landed – with a satisfying thunk – on my desk today, the Bosch GDS 14.4V-Li Professional Impact Wrench. As the weather was lovely we went straight outside to have a play around with it.

Fantastic machine, here’s the video we shot;

We also took some photos, more of which you can find on our Power Tool Geekery page (please join the group and upload your own power tool photos).

Pedal-Powered Hacksaw

Yesterday we blogged about a hybrid-bike powered by Dewalt power tool batteries. I titled the post “Power Tools Aren’t Just for Saw-Jockies – Hybrid Electic Bike”.

Well, today, we were delighted to read about a pedal-powered hacksaw, so it would seem that there are such things as saw-jockies, if you get my reference…

Anyway, there’s a great video you can watch;

The purpose of the pedal-powered hacksaw is noble; to help disabled people “make boring tasks good, honest fun”. Developed by Bernard Kiwia from Tanzania, the saw is part of a series of tools and devices constructed from old bike parts, all designed to help disabled people.
