    The 45* point is for glazing putty on window pains, but I guess that was before your time.

  2. George Eads on February 27, 2023 at 6:26 am

    I really liked the utility knife/scraper. I agree about the 6 in 1 painter’s putty knife. I use mine all the time.

  3. David Carlson on February 27, 2023 at 6:27 am

    You could save us a lot of time if you put links to the great products. Great content. Oh, can you slow down just a bit?

  4. DaemonDeathAngel on February 27, 2023 at 6:30 am

    In before I buy 2 carrying handles and destroy my back daily lifting 3/4 inch OSB

  5. Liberty Cosworth on February 27, 2023 at 6:30 am

    Really useful video. One thing about the respirators – for them to work properly the wearer needs to be clean shaven (I have a beard too, but I have had to shave it off to wear a respirator while working with hazardous materials). Facial hair disrupts the facepiece seal almost completely negating most of the utility of wearing the respirator with organic vapor cartridges and/or particulate cartridges. There is a reason why workers occupationally exposed to hazardous materials and required to wear respiratory protection based on air sampling are required to be clean shaven to ensure they pass what is called the fit test and also to ensure the best possible facepiece seal.

  6. Ivan on February 27, 2023 at 6:30 am

    5:46 I am just bought a same tool( not same brand) I would like to say , it is absolutely worth each cent you spend on it.

  7. Mark G on February 27, 2023 at 6:31 am

    The scaper version of the box knife has too steep of an angle. The 6 in 1 handle cap will break off from pounding on it. The full tange version 5 in 1 is better. I had that end cap come off many 6 in 1 tools.

  8. Les Sayers on February 27, 2023 at 6:31 am

    I don’t know if anyone else mentioned it, but the joint you describe as a drawer lock joint isn’t.

  9. lg vdb on February 27, 2023 at 6:31 am

    05:55 You can also use a glue clamp for this. Most handymen already own such a thing.

  10. Pete Ferguson on February 27, 2023 at 6:34 am

    New sub! Nice video!

  11. Ken Knutson on February 27, 2023 at 6:34 am

    Paper towel trick with magnet made the video worth watching. For those interested in the switch utility blade please be aware it requires a specialty blade; you’re regular utility blades will NOT work. Just be aware.

  12. Christopher Wheeler on February 27, 2023 at 6:35 am

    The glue bottle ($8) becomes £13.50 ($16.25) in the UK. NO WAY!

  13. Greg J on February 27, 2023 at 6:35 am

    Nice collection of useful tools. The magnetic parts try is available at Harbor Freight for $4. The safety glasses can come as bifocals for us reading challenged woodworkers and last comment, I have a couple of Glu-bots and my main complaint is that glue drys in the tip and I’m constantly having to clean it. Still better than the Titebond bottles.

  14. RooHue on February 27, 2023 at 6:37 am

    What kind of engineer were you? I’m a Civil Eng! 🙂

  15. Alex Lew on February 27, 2023 at 6:39 am

    The Husky 5-1 painters tool is my go to glad to see it in your video:)

  16. Carl Rice on February 27, 2023 at 6:40 am

    will that "Glue Bottle" work with Ketchup,,, ?

  17. Adam Alpern on February 27, 2023 at 6:41 am

    at the 6:14 mark of this video you are putting the full sheet of plywood on some kind of cart. Can you tell me what cart that is. I think I can use that to move some 4×4 panels for a platform I have. Thank you very much.

  18. Tony Price on February 27, 2023 at 6:41 am

    Thanks I have had a glubot for over a year now and never knew about the cap being storage for the tip cap. that was the only thing a hated about the glubot was the tip cap always hanging in the way. Great job.

  19. Martin Griggs on February 27, 2023 at 6:42 am

    I love that glue bottle, I have had one for a couple months

  20. Robert Lehman on February 27, 2023 at 6:42 am

    I own a ‘hockey puck’ sized rare-earth magnet that I mounted on the end of an old broomstick, I once spilled an entire box of finish nails, I thought "no big deal, I’ll clean it up with my mega magnet." Worked great, but every stinkin’ nail-head stuck to the magnet with every nail point sticking out, , , it was like plucking a sea urchin.

  21. CityguyUSA on February 27, 2023 at 6:43 am

    Your telling me those ear buds are enough to protect your hearing?

  22. barney on February 27, 2023 at 6:43 am

    paint can top was not on tight

  23. Nick Widis on February 27, 2023 at 6:43 am

    I had the Tough built knife. It was junk. Lasted about a week. It won’t grip a blade any longer. Waste of money.

  24. Scott Winkler on February 27, 2023 at 6:45 am

    Respirators are great on clean shaven mugs. They do not do well with "BEARDS" or "SCRUFF" on your face. Just so you know. I learned from years of Mining respirator and Mine Rescue SCBA experience.😛😁👍

  25. Jason Wood on February 27, 2023 at 6:46 am

    Hey so that 11in1 (or whatever the number was) with the hexes, I think the hex cutouts are for the disassembly of paint guns for cleaning after use. The tool I have that like has the right size to loosen the nozzle and other parts on the paint sprayer. Pretty handy so I don’t have to go hunt for wrenches.

  26. Boone County Generators on February 27, 2023 at 6:48 am

    That Kreg panel carrier creates a bending moment that would surely break a sheet of drywall if you tried to lift it.

  27. Jarred Mattingly on February 27, 2023 at 6:54 am

    Awesome! Thanks KnightHawk!

  28. Jon Fink on February 27, 2023 at 6:54 am

    For hearing I like to use Decibullz. They are moldable to your ear and have a lanyard to connect both ear plugs so you don’t lose them.

  29. flyty on February 27, 2023 at 6:55 am

    I like your videos informative, and funny God bless you and yours thanks .

  30. Tony Thomas on February 27, 2023 at 6:55 am

    Whats that? Ive had one of those for a long time and I love it. Using it today to carry sheet rock and plywood.

    For anyone interested in those magnetic parts trays, shop around online and you will find a variety of sizes and shapes to go with whatever projects you do the most. There are small rectangular ones the size of that tray of screws you dropped on the floor. I find it useful to pre-load those small trays with common fasteners so they are within arms reach, and you can even turn them on their side and have them stuck to a magnetic backsplash over your work area. Doesn’t take up as much space as a bunch of plastic trays and there is no risk of knocking them off the bench (and even if you did the fasteners would stay in the tray).

  34. DailyAnarchy on February 27, 2023 at 7:00 am

    Brad how weirdly satisfying is it with the scraper/utility? You just wanna set and play with it? It’s like a grown up fidget spinner. Lol

  35. John Lindsey on February 27, 2023 at 7:00 am

    Kreg panel carrier was the best 25 dollars I’ve spent in a while

  36. Sekhait Online on February 27, 2023 at 7:03 am

    The movie clips take away more than it adds.
    Liking the content, but the movie clips makes me lose interest in the actual content and keeps me from subscribing..

  37. Flambo Kuma on February 27, 2023 at 7:04 am

    My Dad was a Night Custodian at one of the local High Schools back in the 90’s. He kept a 5-1 Painters Knife in a holster on his hip. I have it now and use it regularly at work too. Someday it will go to my Son.

  38. Pat Paulo on February 27, 2023 at 7:04 am

    As an engineer I’m sure you’ll have realised you don’t get a good seal on the respirator when you have facial hair.

  39. Mihoshika Furude on February 27, 2023 at 7:06 am

    Oh. So that’s what that curve is for in that scraper. Here I am, using a spinny doodad.

  40. David Russell on February 27, 2023 at 7:07 am

    Is there a version (or other dispenser ) for contact cement ? (Looking at the wood glue dispenser … made me think is there a version for contact cement glue)

  41. DaMoNarch91 on February 27, 2023 at 7:09 am

    This wasn’t anywhere near as bad as The Eternals

  42. Michael Parsons on February 27, 2023 at 7:09 am

    We’re the shirts a one time deal? I don’t see them in the store

  43. Eric Kirven on February 27, 2023 at 7:13 am

    I have one and I like it. The biggest problem with the Toughbuilt scraper is you need to purchase special blades. 30 for $10. More stuff for the storage drawer.

  44. Ultimate Reject on February 27, 2023 at 7:13 am

    How come the engineer doesn’t mention the terrible design of the razor blades blade changing mechanism.. so easy to slice your self

  45. Tyg Rahof on February 27, 2023 at 7:14 am

    I have a few of these. Nice list. The panel carrier is on my New Tool list…That never ends…

  46. soledude on February 27, 2023 at 7:15 am


  47. bmckinn1 on February 27, 2023 at 7:16 am

    @Fix this build that. Do you have a relative that does Smith Busters on the Brownells channel?

  48. wordwyrd on February 27, 2023 at 7:21 am

    I think you have those reversed.. 2097 folters are absolutely rated for organic vapors. They were a mainstay in the injection molding shop I worked in for a decade.

  49. Rickthedino on February 27, 2023 at 7:22 am

    Ever since I bought the husky 15in1 I only used the screw drive four time and I’ve had it four six years lol 😂

  50. Kona Golden on February 27, 2023 at 7:24 am

    Plays with his tool and says "I could just do this all day"…… This is why men don’t have breasts.
