oztooltalk has never undertaken anything so awesome, so comprehensive or so blatantly stupid before. We’ve attempted (and almost certainly failed) to produce the best 18v Premium Hammer Drill comparison video test in the history of, well history. Because no one […]

Cordless grinders used to be a novelty: fun, but not particularly useful. They were underpowered and didn’t last long enough to get any real work done. Well the brushless grinders from Milwaukee and now Makita, combined with high capacity batteries, […]
