Tool/Equipment Product Reviews


When you’re planning to touch up your car’s factory paint or do any sort of repainting, you’ll find that one of the most popular companies out there is Paintscratch. Not only are they reputable for providing you with quality automotive paint to match your factor’s paint color, they also offer relatively fast mixing and shipping (even during the COVID-19 Pandemic.)

Although most portable jump starters are very small compared to the past, they are still at least a couple inches thick. The GOOLOO GP Warrior is the thinnest portable jump starter I’ve come across, measuring at just over one inch thick. Aside from the sleeker profile, the jump starter works great and really fits the term, portable.

Not everyone has a garage where they can spray paint freely without the worry of flying debris getting on their paint surface. Even if you do have the shelter of an enclosed space, you’ll still have to worry about overspray. If you’ve ever sprayed paint before, you’ll know how important it is to keep your paint surface clean and how much overspray can travel. This review is for the Wagner Spraytech Spray Paint Tent in the large size, which can accommodate very large pieces.

If there is one item that is always in my garage, it’s shop towels. These things are a must-have for cleaning up liquids, oil, and grease. They absorb these types of liquids extremely well and still holds together even when wet. Shop towels may come in a dispenser box, or in a roll as shown here. The roll will fit in regular paper towel dispenser with each roll having 55 large sheets per roll.

NOCO Boost Jump Starter Review

We purchased this NOCO Boost XL GB50 jump starter as we were experiencing many dead batteries in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. With us luckily being able to work from home, we were rarely driving our vehicles and as a result, the car batteries would go dead after 2-3 weeks of not driving. With the help of the NOCO Boost jump starter, we are able to jump start our cars whenever the battery died. We’d then drive the vehicles where we needed to and on a longer drive it would charge up the battery again.

bulky and would take too long to fill with air to use practically. Audew reached out to me to write a review on a portable tire inflator and I was ecstatic to try it out. The thought of having a portable tire inflator that uses power from the car’s cigarette lighter was very interesting to me as I never thought of this even being available.

Tire tread depth is extremely important to be aware of for any vehicle. Checking tire tread depth on a regular basis is the key to avoid being in the unfortunate incident of being stuck on the side of the road or even worse, involved in a dangerous car accident. Although simple in its operation, the build quality on this Steelman tread depth gauge is high.

Hand cleaners are one of those things that you may use without giving much thought to. But it’s also one of those things that you can’t live without in the workshop. Without it, you’ll have a hell of a time cleaning all that dirt, oil, and grime off your hands and from under your fingernails. I tried Gojo Hand Cleaner for the first time and found it surprisingly soft on the hands.

Recently on my way home from work, a truck kicked up some gravel which hit my windshield. I heard an incredibly loud “THWACK” sound on the glass in front of me and I quickly spotted the damage: a large, medium, and small chip all side-by-side from one another. I picked up this repair kit to repair the windshield myself.
