We’re back to share some exciting tools on the market this year! Let’s take a closer look at some new products from DeWalt and Bernzomatic.
Introducing the new DeWalt ATOMIC Cordless Circular Saw – it’s small, but mighty! Seriously, how cute is this MINI 4 1/2-inch circular saw?! (Never thought I’d ever describe a saw as being “cute” – what is even happening right now?!) I took this tiny tool for a spin at the Home Depot ProSpective Tool event earlier this year and was so impressed by it (you can see it in action in my Instagram stories).
Its compact size is easy to manage for my small hands, yet it delivers enough power to cut through 3/4-inch thick material! I also love that I can operate this tool with one hand. We used it to squeeze into tighter spaces and make tricky cuts when we demo’d our old hardwood floors. It’s got a brushless motor that allows you to cut up to 339 linear feet of 3/4-inch material and a bevel gear design for cutting at 90º-45º. There’s also an electronic blade brake that stops quickly and safely, as well as on-board dust port for dust control.
This DeWalt Sledgehammer was essential during our hardwood floor removal – I absolutely LOVED wielding this thing. You can see it in action here – time-lapse video style! It was lightweight enough for me to manage, yet it packed a powerful punch.
This is a 4-lb. fiberglass engineering drilling hammer offering precise power with its concentrated strike face. The handle has an over-molded, textured grip that was comfortable to hold and easy to control. It was great for releasing any pent-up frustrations during our flooring demo!
These gloves are great for light to heavy-duty tasks with maximum durability, dexterity, and a no-slip grip. They’re made of nylon, dipped in a specialized coating to protect you in wet, dry, or oily applications. The tough outer polymer skin is flexible, yet provides protection from impacts and abrasions. Adam usually wears these gloves for messy jobs like yard work or when he works on our cars. They’re a good, go-to glove for a variety of jobs around the house.
I’ve used this Bernzomatic MAP-Pro Torch kit on several projects, like my DIY Lawn Dominos, DIY Metal iPad Stand, Poolside Towel Rack, and Copper Spice Rack. If you want to learn how to weld, but you’re intimidated by it, using a torch like this one is the perfect stepping stone. This torch kit is incredibly simple to use for soldering, brazing, and heat-treating. The hose and slender body are easy to handle, while the adjustable swirl flame provides hot, efficient heat and fast soldering times. There’s also an auto start/stop ignition for quick one-hand ignition. The applications for this tool are also wide – use it to kill weeds, solder, braze, and bend metal, burn designs onto wood, and more.
