Best other tool review sites?
What other tool review sites are there that are worth visiting?
I know about these:
ToolGuyd (mostly industry news and occasional reviews)
Toolmonger ( lots of industry news but with informed comments )
Make magazine Toolbox (great stuff, real user reviews)
Consumer Reports (classic great research)0
There is the wirecutter, http://thewirecutter.com/
This was started by someone whom I believe came from Gizmodo. The interesting thing about this site is that he is rather opinionated--not necessarily in a negative way, just "you want a camera? Get this one!"
I check all of those daily (I'm a bit obsessed with tools. Another good one is professional-power-tool-guide.com . They have a ton of reviews.
Great suggestions. I had forgotten about Wirecutter.
Didn't know about Pro Power tool. Thanks.
A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.Tell us what you love.
