Carbide Cutters: They’re everywhere!

It makes sense, to Eric Armstrong, to take the differences between carbide and HSS into account when choosing a blade. For saw blades, he prefers carbide for rough-cuts and HSS for finish work.

Ryobi Six Pack: A Shop All Wrapped Up for Christmas

Eric Armstrong also liked our article on the Six Pack. In fact, he almost bought one at HD, but then remembered he already has a great drill, power saw, saber saw, and even some flashlights. What he doesn’t have is a compound miter saw and would really like the one in the Six Pack, plus the portable workbench, and speed saw … sold separately.
