The Industrial Pro is designed to take out large amounts of wood from your project. Mainly used in the beginning to chip your wood down to a manageable size for carving more intricate designs. If you need to rough out a chair seat or take out large portions of an artistic project this is the disk you need. Made from hardened steel and tungsten carbide, this disk will last you a long time and you will make many projects with it.
Like the Industrial Pro, the Turbo Plane takes off a significant amount of wood, but can also give a smoother finish. Great for freehand carving for a more organic finish, think Sam Maloof. This wheel is specifically designed to be laid flat and does not have a cutting surface on the outer ring. This also makes the Turbo Plane a bit safer to use.
The Turbo Shaft offers a very unique design for a wood carving tool. The Turb Shaft is a smaller cutting device that can go straight down to make deep, yet smaller holes. This tool is also great for freehand carving and getting into more detail. It can also be used to cut out lettering for signs and can even be attached to a jig to make perfect circles.
And last but not least, the Ball gauge Grinder. Made to carve wood smooth an get into tight spots, the ball gauge grinder can be use for finishing passes and well as freehand work. Great for carving spoons and small bowls, this grinder will make quick work of wood removal. This grinder has great control making it the right tool for the job.
Good Man Stuff found some awesome tactical gloves that fit a variety of working scenarios! These Titan OPS full finger gloves have all the bells and whistles and for a reasonable price. They even have plastic on the knuckles to help prevent injury on a part of the hand that is prone to hitting things. The gloves are designed for work, hunting, cycling and tactical use. For me personally, I could have used these just the other day when I was attempting to fix my dryer. I was warned to use gloves because of the sharp metal on the internal workings and unfortunately did not take the advice. This resulted in a nasty metal splinter in the palm of my hand and several cuts to my fingers. Needless to say I once again learned a valuable life lesson. (Insert sarcasm here) These gloves would be great for cutting wood and picking up brush in the yard as well. So whether your hunting this season, cleaning up our yard or trying to fix a dryer, these gloves will protect your hands while doing it!
Paint any room in half the time with this 18 inch paint roller set! At Good Man Stuff we have been using this set for years and it has saved us so much time. It is also easy to use and the parts have not failed us yet. We have painted several thousand square feet with this set up and it is still going strong. The quick release Purdy 8 ft pole is great and attaches to the Purdy 18 inch roller frame easily. The roller frame itself is easy to adjust and holds firm while painting. Just make sure to clean it off after the job is done and it should last for many jobs to come. The large paint bucket holds up to 5 gallons of paint and cleans easily after use with just a little pressure from the hose. When you see how fast a job gets done with this set up you will wonder why you did not get it sooner! This 18 inch paint roller set is also great if you want to start your own painting business or do side jobs for extra cash. We would highly recommend the investment if you plan on doing any paint jobs larger than just one room.

Even though a drill is on this list you will also need to have screw drivers that you can use by hand. We found this set on Amazon and for the price and good reviews it seemed like a great deal. You are sure to have these for a lifetime.
A mitre saw is great for someone who has very little experience with cutting wood. Not only is it a safer option for cutting, it makes the job much easier and precise. We like a sliding mitre saw for its ability to have a deeper cut and therefore be more versatile in its use.
We would normally suggest one or two of these pliers, but with this price we think you should just get all of them. Again, Irwin is a great brand and you will use every one these pliers at some time or another
The 6 in 1 tool might seem like a specialty tool and every contractor you meet will tell you it is a must have. This one by Purdy has a stainless steel blade so it will not rust. A rule to keep in mind when buying other tools down the road.
You have to have a drill and for the homeowner we love the Ryobi ONE + products. They simply have so many other tools that are compatible with the same battery and for our experience they are very solid and long lasting tools.
Like with the drill above, we really like the ONE + tools by Ryobi. This set has so many great tools that you will definitely use. For the essentials of a circle saw and drill we chose this set. However this set also includes a nail gun, an impact drill and reciprocating Saw that we would include on our advanced tools list, so why not just get this be ahead of the curve?! It is also hard to beat the price for all that you get and these tools will last you a very long time.
Even though the batteries that come with the Ryobi ONE + tools are sufficient to get the job done, we recommend getting these high capacity batteries. Not only will your tools power last longer it also increases the performance of the tools. A great upgrade to your ONE + set.
