We're Reviewing Hand Tools For You …

-Because it’s not just about the cost, it’s the quality-

Don’t spend good money on hand tools just to have them stop working soon after you bought them!

Taking the time to search online for reviews and recommendations can really add up to a large part of your day. Let us do the searching for you and find the best ones for your money.

Rolgear, everything you need for around the house

Don't learn the hard way like I did...

Growing up as a kid in Alaska in the 70’s meant that there wasn’t just a hardware store up the street. And the 15 or so mile drive to get to one (which could seem like 100 miles in the winter) didn’t mean they’d have what we needed or that we could afford it. When my dad did buy (or make) what we needed to get the job done, it had to last. One of my greatest friends posted this and completely spelled out the motivation for this website. Buy a good one, care for it well, and it will last. Invest in your tools, don’t just spend money.

Hand Tool Users Usually Come In 4 Types, Which One Are You?

Are you a:

  • Worker/Contractor?

You certainly need the most no b.s. of tools.

  1. Where can you get it at the best cost?
  2. Is it really the tool that will make you money, or is it just the tool that everyone else is using?
  3. Can it take a real beating?
  4. What kind of warranty does it have? 
  5. Is the warranty honored quickly and simply?
  6. What kind of customer support is offered in general?

  • Serious Hobbyist?

Many times a contractor grade tool will raise the level of quality and efficiency for the serious hobbyist to the next level. Comparing different grades in tools will help you decide if it’s worth the extra money.

There are also many specialties like Dremel tools that can really raise the quality and pleasure factor in any hobby, whether it be auto body detailing, gunsmithing, woodworking, model building, or whatever interest you may have.

  • Home Improver?

Did you know that there are manufacturers that make tools just for you? Though they may lack certain features of the pro tools, they will generally be much less expensive. We’ll get into those features so you can decide if you really need them, or if you can avoid paying money for things you’ll never need.

  • General Home Maintainer?

While you certainly can’t be spending your money on a tool that will stop working right when you really need it, you may not need to spend the top dollar on the highest grade hand tool on the market either. 

A quality hand tool might not be as sexy with fewer features, fewer accessories and lower run time, but these things are frequently not needed with general home maintenance and can save you a bundle.
