    My Every Day Carry razor knife is the Sheffield Folding Lock Back Knife with lifetime warranty…
    I’ve tried and like several of their knives, but my favorite is the red/black 5760.
    supply was becoming limited, so I snatched up 5 of them online.

  2. G.D. SOB on January 25, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    The STKR mechanical pencil is cheaper and better in my opinion.

  3. John & Laura Salzman on January 25, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    Brad, first time I have seen your channel. Very interesting and fascinating! I would like to see how you made your workbench clamping top. Kreg makes one, but yours in much larger. Impressive.

  4. Lyle Jensen on January 25, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    The pica pencils are great I have a few setup with different colours around the shop. Great for marking on steel as well!

  5. Chad Musch on January 25, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    Best Utility Knife is the Olfa

  6. BertoGetMeLit on January 25, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    Since this is a safe space.. I have a habit 💉… and it’s epoxy🤣

  7. BrianthatiscalledBrian on January 25, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Probably not a good idea to eat metallic bacon.

  8. Joel on January 25, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Marking blade?

  9. balamstudios on January 25, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    I’ve been binge-watching this playlist and I’ve learned a lot that I’m going to use to make 2-sheet plywood bookcase that go almost as high as the ceiling…I just have 1 comment and suggestion. You have international viewers here, so, Can you please use metric too? like saying the measure in metric right along imperial? There are only 3 countries in the planet that use imperial, so it would help many people to not have to keep pausing videos to go and find an oline converter.

  10. Hammered Dwarf on January 25, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    I definitely recommend picking up Japan Industrial Standard (JIS) Screwdrivers. They are cut sharply and wont strip screwheads.

  11. Rik Ruiter on January 25, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    Great video. But please cut up the sections per product.

  12. DJ Chancla on January 25, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    Do you recommend brush or brushless circular saws

  13. Ben Farzad on January 25, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    Hi, would you please let me know your Sanders’s brand name.

  14. Damon Finken on January 25, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    FYI- DO NOT carry syringes in your car visible to the police officer pulling you over. Unless of course you are interested in K9 searches, your rights being violated, snooty attitudes, walking lines toe to toe for hours at a time. Tip: The cop fishing for proof, will continue to fish until they catch something. If there is no fish in the pond it takes FOREVER!!! OH… and also, I’m type 1 Diabetic. They mistreat diabetics EVEN AFTER you can prove you have legitimate reason to have a syringe. If your excuse is because you are a woodworker…
    … Don’t leave them visible.

  15. The Real Michael Cole on January 25, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    Centerpoint tape measures are VERY helpful.

  16. Racefiend47 on January 25, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    Bought that Irwin flush cut saw and it’s amazing. I have a large one and this one is even better

  17. Christine D. on January 25, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    Great tool ideas here. You’re definitely one of my top 3 favorite channels. I like the info and your personality. Thanks!

  18. Jeremiah Carrico on January 25, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    Papermate Sharpwriter pencils.

    -“spring loaded” tip prevents premature breakage.

    Best I’ve found.

  19. Stoney on January 25, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    Thanks for the ideas. I really like the mechanical pencil and the spring loaded punch nail. That’s something new

  20. James Anthony on January 25, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    I usually get popsicle sticks at Dollar Tree, as well as bamboo skewers at Walmart for about a buck for 100. Both seem to come in handy for little projects I tend to work on. =)

  21. eggsngrits on January 25, 2022 at 9:59 pm

    Ha! Instead of the ice pick, I ground a point on a super cheap aluminum (??) Phillips screwdriver that had rounded off in the head of a tough screw. Sweet!

  22. Steven Simrell on January 25, 2022 at 9:59 pm

    What about a lee valley left handed tape. Numbers are not upsidedown when you use it with your left hand.

  23. Winston Smith on January 25, 2022 at 10:00 pm

    The imperial measurement system is the dumbest one on the planet. Fractions instead of decimal unit divisions. So convenient.

  24. ajpalafo on January 25, 2022 at 10:00 pm

    Milwaukee fastback with Phillips and flathead screwdriver that folds out

  25. John Higgins on January 25, 2022 at 10:00 pm

    I got a retractable exacto knife I find myself using a lot more then I expected

  26. Jon Engle on January 25, 2022 at 10:01 pm

    try oral syringes for some of the ‘bigger’ and more viscous liquids. No metal type, but has the same measurements and suction. Also great for applying wood-filler to fill nail holes….load the syringe and it won’t dry out on you nearly as fast.

  27. Jack Hynds on January 25, 2022 at 10:02 pm

    "A whole new meaning to quick draw" You sir are despicable…

    …because now I have to buy that pencil so I can make the same joke to my wife.

  28. bpkeegan1 on January 25, 2022 at 10:04 pm

    Brad, I’d add a 10”-12” cat’s paw pry bar. I love mine, comes in so handy for all kinds of uses. Also you can get it into places that a claw hammer won’t fit if your pulling nails.

  29. Issac collier on January 25, 2022 at 10:07 pm

    i believe that flexible claw is designed for pulling hair from drains but i could be wrong

  30. Andrew P on January 25, 2022 at 10:08 pm

    mechanics when they drop their 10mm and don’t have their telescoping magnetic retriever

  31. Karl Patch on January 25, 2022 at 10:09 pm

    Freaking AWESOME video man! Great tips and great prices! Thank you sir 😉👍🏼

  32. PandaIsKawaii on January 25, 2022 at 10:10 pm

    What program do u use to design your cabinets?

  33. Cliff Walden on January 25, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    Pentel Graphgear 1000 Mechanical Pencil. It has a retractable tip like a ball point pen so that you dont break the tip. I think I saw it on a similar cheap tools video done by Stumpy Nubs. It is very high quality and a great solid feel to it. AND, it’s less than $20!

  34. mon2dan on January 25, 2022 at 10:16 pm

    Hi Brad! Quick question regarding the builders club- if you join the “plan” level so you get access to all past plans? Thanks Candy in Alabama

  35. Ray DuBose on January 25, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    Just FYI Your Flush Trim Saw is a Dovetail saw, I had to go look after I saw it scratched the wood while cutting the dowels. A flush trim saw doesn’t set the teeth outwards so it won’t scratch the wood. everything else is nice and I just picked up the Pica Mechanical Pencil a couple weeks ago and haven’t ahd a chance to use it yet.

  36. Karl Patch on January 25, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    …. any relation to Brad Paisley? You look and sound alot like him. Even very similar humor. 😂🤣😅

  37. Em4gdn1m on January 25, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    Alex?? 😭😭

  38. Jose Cintron on January 25, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    Your were half way thru and I hadda hit the subscribe button so I wouldn’t forget. I watch plenty DIY and woodworking shows and I found you very knowledgeable and entertaining. I do pick up tips and techniques that I in turn use. I will be watching more of you.

  39. Stephen Craig on January 25, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    Carpenter sharpens pencil with plane.

  40. TILL THE END on January 25, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    12 ft is great if you have good eye sight. Most of us are using cheaters and that 12 ft is way to small. 16 ft is perfect size, Period.

  41. williamo1980 on January 25, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    OLFA is the best snap blade but yeah it’s a little over $20 maybe or maybe not depending on mm / size

  42. Alan Reynolds on January 25, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    A $15 pencil? That’s a lot of money for something I’m gonna misplace in 10 minutes….

  43. Steve Hough on January 25, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    I have a left handed tape measure (although I am right handed). This means that when I use it the numbers are always the right way up when I’m marking and measuring so I don’t have to fiddle about.

  44. Richard T on January 25, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    Well that was fun! I kept stopping the video and adding crap to my cart…you cost me about 120 bucks… haha! Awesome video my friend!!

  45. Gary Cheevers on January 25, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    Remember the good old days when you actually built projects instead of just pumping out garbage content?

  46. Wayne Hansen on January 25, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    I use my seringes for gluing small applications as well

  47. Martin Houde on January 25, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    Nice video! It’d be nice if prices were this low in Europe… That spring loaded punch cost me about 40 USD…And it feels weird to see only inches on a measuring tape (I’m Canadian…used to see both systems everywhere)

    From an experienced (in a lab) guy working with VERY small volumes: to avoid foamy tiny bubbles in the syringes, fill them without the needle on. This will prevent a lot of foaming inside the syringe, as it keeps the opening bigger and doesn’t squeeze too much liquid at once through a very tiny opening (it also lets you pull much faster). The more viscous a liquid is, the slower you need to pull (and push) it. Put a little more than needed, then attach the needle. Get the inevitable bubbles (that’s the dead volume) in the needle, push them out and push back the excess liquid back in the bottle (not in the air like all the TV shows and movies) until the desired volume. If your stain is REALLY precious, get a syringe with a low dead volume. If you wonder what the dead volume is, it’s what is needed to fill the needle and the part of the syringe holding it. Some syringes have the plunger go right to the needle to mitigate that.

    Needle gauges also work in reverse: the higher the number, the lower the size.

    What I don’t need is to watch a vid of a bloke telling me what I need.

  49. Chad Chisum on January 25, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    A stud finder is a great tool to have

  50. OcotilloDavid on January 25, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    For cutting foams of various densities and rigidity i use a electric carving knife. The mess of foam bits floating around is greatly reduced, accuracy is better, and its faster .
