Atomic Shop Update: The Work Bench

I’ve never owned what most professional mechanics would call a “nice” toolbox. In the past, I’ve used middle of the road Craftsman boxes almost exclusively. And frankly, I planned to continue down that same path when I started the new shop. My initial plan was to buy a couple of 44″ Harbor Freight boxes and then build a “Steevo inspired” workbench around them. That all changed once Joe from Motorhead Extraordinaire heard of my venture.

Oh boy. You guys have created a monster… Again, I’m not being paid for this… BUT, Home Depot just dropped a “one-day” only sale on M18 drivers. You can pick one up for $89. Of course, it’s not the new brushless version but it is over 50% off. I couldn’t resist.

Cyber Monday… Zorotools.com

I don’t usually do this… and don’t want to start. But I actually took advantage of “Cyber Monday” today by buying myself a brand spanking new Millermatic 211 and I got 30% off and free shipping while doing it. I got it through Zorotools.com (they aren’t a sponsor, I don’t know them, and I’m getting paid nothing for this post) and they carry just about everything you can think of. If you get busy, you can get 30% off as well. Just use the discount code “holiday”.

Slice Ceramic Box Cutters

People send me shit to review all the time. At first thought, this might seem like a nice perk to the job… and it is, but honestly 90% of the stuff I’m sent to review has no interest or value to me. Typically, this stuff ends up in a landfill somewhere and not on the site.

So, when Slice sent me a couple of their new ceramic box cutters they sat unopened in my office for a few weeks… I mean, what real innovation can their be in a utility knife? I just didn’t see a re-invented wheel here and didn’t rush to use them. But, I’ve been working on my new shop like a mad man as of late and have had lots of packaging to open and stuff that just needed to be cut. The Slice just happened to be around, so I opened it up and started using it with no legitimate thoughts towards usability, a review, or anything like that. I mean, I just had shit that needed cut, so I was cutting it!
