Fix 8 Recognise That Whilst A Bad Workman Always Blames His Tools, Having The Right Power Tools To Hand Will Help Get Things Off To A Much Better Start

Maybe you are a home user getting ready to tackle a Do It Yourself (DIY) task or maybe you are a professional taking on a new job, but in either case you probably recognise the importance of having the right tools for the job. Fix 8 also recognise that whilst a bad workman always blames his tools, having the right power tools to hand will help get things off to a much better start.

Indeed Fix 8 pride themselves on their ability to supply both the amateur DIY person and the professional tradesman with high quality power tools at prices to suit all budgets. As an example you may just need a lightweight cordless screwdriver for very occasional use around the house, in which case Fix 8 would recommend a small 3.6v model. However, they also supply a wide range of heavy duty cordless screwdrivers and drills in a wide range of voltages from 10.8V to 36V, including the common sizes of 7.2,9.6 and 14.4V, as well as truly industrious high power 24 and 36V models. Fix 8 advise that the latter are ideal for professionals and are ideal for continual heavy use including drilling in to concrete.

When it comes to working with wood then they supply a complete range of electric planers, routers and sanders to cover all of your woodworking needs. Indeed they specialize in the Makita range of sanders, which have been chosen by Fix 8 for their ease of use, durability and value for money. They offer a full range of Makita sanders from high-powered angle sanders, orbital sanders, belt sanders, filing sanders, palm sanders through to multi-purpose sanders.

Fix 8 also have a wide range of power tools designed for working with harder materials such as concrete, ranging from heavy duty hammer drills capable of using extra long drill bits through to stone cutters.

All of Fix 8’s power tool range can be found on their website, where pictures, and full descriptions of all of their power tools can be easily accessed and ordered online. Best of all if you spend more than £50, next day delivery is free, and as Fix 8 recognises that your time is money, you can even have your new power tools delivered directly to the site you are working on, saving you time by letting you get on with work and not having to wait at home for a delivery.

On their new website Fix 8 also offer a wide range of accessories for all of their power tools, from spares batteries to dust extraction units and Bosch jigsaw blades, making them a one stop shop when it comes to power tools.

Once you have checked out their latest range of power tools online you may want to order some of the extensive range of fixings and fasteners that they sell, in order to complete your job, all of which are also available with next day delivery. Fix 8 also offer a comprehensive range of support online as well as having highly knowledgeable staff that can handle all of your telephone enquiries.

Popular Mechanics Editor’s Choice Award Won By Nail Jack Tools

Nail Jack Tools unveiled their first two nail pulling pliers – the Nail Jack® and Nail Hunter® at the 2009 National Hardware Show in Las Vegas this week and were informed that the Nail Jack has captured Popular Mechanics’ prestigious Editor’s Choice Award.

Popular Mechanics Editor’s Choice Award

The publication does not accept submissions for their award, but instead chooses winners from thousands of products based on originality, ingenuity and design. The award recognized Nail Jack Tools for its innovative design in the Nail Jack nail puller – the first hand tool designed as a pliers like device to dig, grab and pull nails, staples and brads. Popular Mechanics called the Nail Jack nail puller a “fresh new hand tool” in a product category that “rarely sees true innovation.”

“We are honored to be recognized by this esteemed group of editors for the 2009 Editor’s Choice Award from Popular Mechanics,” says Nail Jack CEO Mike Foley. “The show has been a great opportunity to showcase our tools, and winning an award like this really confirms the need for a new line of tools designed specifically from the ground up to pull nails and fasteners without damaging costly wood products.”

The patented and patent-pending designs of the Nail Jack and Nail Hunter fill a large gap in the retail market and construction industry. Designed like pliers, these unique tools do most of their work with “one hand”, or can be struck with a hammer to dig out a nail, grab a headless brad or nail with their jaws while utilizing a built in fulcrum. The family of tools is specifically designed to pull nails, staples and fasteners with efficiency – saving time and money.

The Idaho-based company founded in 2006 unveiled the Nail Jack tool line at this year’s National Hardware Show. For more information, please visit the company’s website at or call the company at 1-877-PULL-NAIL (or at +1-208-928-6426).
