10 Tool Blogs You Need to Know


There are plenty of design and DIY blogs but the world of tool blogs is fairly small and among them a few stand out. These sites cover the latest tools and hardware from all the main manufacturers and they often highlight tool companies that are lesser known.

Some of these tool blogs skew towards the professional while others are geared to the weekend warrior types. Some of them are run by contractors who have relied on tools for years to make a living and know them inside out while others are run by tool fanatics who are obsessed with the technology and design of the newest tools.
In no particular order these are my favorite tool blogs and should be yours too.

A fairly new site from Todd Fratzel who runs Home Construction Improvement. He’s compiled a great group of editors and know their tools inside and out.

Pro Tool Reviews
Clint, Kenny, and crew publish new tool reviews daily and have an active forum of other tool fanatics. Clint and Tim run Shop Tool Reviews that is focused on woodworking, metalworking, and automotive tools.

The official blog of Ohio Power Tool and edited by Jay Amstutz (pictured above). You’ll find great side by side tool comparisons and they run the incomparable Power Tool Races.

I’ve worked with Stuart a few times and he has a great grasp of the technology behind the tools.

Tools In Action
This site has been around for awhile but Dan and Eric are working hard to give it a fresh look.

More Blogs
These blogs aren’t necessarily tool focused but they do offer some great reviews and occasional Giveaways from major tool manufacturers. What you will mostly find are great home improvement projects, tutorials and product reviews.

We had some fun with some of these tool bloggers and asked them to share what type of truck they drive. One brand was a clear winner.
