    I used to do lots of renos and that Stanley multi blade knife broke so fast on me

  2. Ricky's Drywall on November 25, 2022 at 5:07 am

    On the Kreg Multi Mark there’s another pretty useful feature. The inset part of the body of the tool is set in 3/16" so it’s perfect for marking reveals on casing.

  3. kanti jito on November 25, 2022 at 5:07 am

    My pick would be the 5 in 1 painting tool as the low price tool that is well worth the money and everyone should have.

  4. VermilionBait&tackle on November 25, 2022 at 5:08 am

    i was literally about to comment how cool and clever that shirt was and then you started to plug it 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  5. Chauncy Brukshut on November 25, 2022 at 5:08 am

    That’s a cool shirt idea. Like it

  6. vebnew on November 25, 2022 at 5:09 am


  7. Kyle Vanover on November 25, 2022 at 5:09 am

    Maybe the coffee stirrers are junior tongue depressors

  8. Aaron Johnson on November 25, 2022 at 5:11 am


  9. Pete Penzenik on November 25, 2022 at 5:11 am

    When you are talking about a tool, why don’t you have the tool name displayed on the video.

  10. Clearview on November 25, 2022 at 5:11 am

    You don’t have to take the wheel off to replace the blade on an Olfa.

  11. sea300ray on November 25, 2022 at 5:12 am

    Your grandpa and I have the exact same combination square. I bought mine when I graduated trade school in 1969 as a patternmaker. Happily retired now.

  12. Vishtu on November 25, 2022 at 5:14 am

    For mechanical pencils I go with the uni-ball Kuru Toga elite

  13. Colin Martin on November 25, 2022 at 5:15 am

    There’s a US company that makes a cheap custom packaged joining set that is made to lock two 1-2-3 blocks together in all sorts of ways. It’s very cheap and I find it really useful. Tay tools sells it, stumpy nubs’ channel was where I found it

  14. Leo Wilkerson on November 25, 2022 at 5:16 am

    When he pulled out the diet mtn dew I immediately subscribed

  15. Timothy O'Shell on November 25, 2022 at 5:17 am

    I ordered a pack of the hiboom pencils, basically off brand of the pica, from Amazon. They come with red, yellow, and gray graphite which helps on lighter and darker woods but a 5 pack with 30 replacement leads is still under 20. Deep reach with the built in sharpener as well. I keep different colors in multiple pencils so I don’t have to change them out.

  16. Fred Schoettle on November 25, 2022 at 5:18 am

    Mora knives.

  17. Dylan on November 25, 2022 at 5:19 am

    That Kreg multi tool also has two sized lips along the edges for doing door casing. Works great.

  18. Stephen Salzman on November 25, 2022 at 5:20 am

    I recommend the Milwaukee Fasttrack blade, it’s solid metal has adjustable lock positions and I doubt I paid over 20 for it. And more memes please. They are a fine distraction.

  19. Joe Lafoon on November 25, 2022 at 5:21 am

    I am curious why not an inexpensive electronic stud finder? Yes, no frills on the under $20 ones, but doesn’t rely on nails/screws that may not be in the stud at all…

  20. John Null on November 25, 2022 at 5:23 am

    The 1/2/3 blocks can be gotten in different sizes, it’s the ratio that is important in most cases

  21. Paul Shaver on November 25, 2022 at 5:23 am

    HUGE fan of the Kreg Multi Tool

  22. Marcos Mendes on November 25, 2022 at 5:24 am

    Stud 🎃

  23. Manabozo on November 25, 2022 at 5:26 am

    Am I the only odd person that uses a Bridgeport knee mill for woodworking?

  24. John on November 25, 2022 at 5:26 am

    You need to have Mountian Dew zero sugar. None of this diet Mountian Dew.

  25. Jane Hitt on November 25, 2022 at 5:27 am

    123 blocks are just right for throwing.

  26. Barry Gordon on November 25, 2022 at 5:27 am

    Safety – if you drop it and the tip is retracted you do not damage the tip. Safety does not always refer to the safety of humans.
    Hanson stud finder – nice!

  27. Rose City Wood Works LLC on November 25, 2022 at 5:27 am

    1-2-3 Blocks are for calibrating/checking your tape measures etc… The are machined to exactly 1" 2" and 3" and not only as a woodworker but also a machinist these things are invaluable to me I probably have 12 floating around the shop and if you ever drop one on concrete might as well trash it cause a ding ruins their calibrations

  28. Jarvis Larson on November 25, 2022 at 5:32 am

    Diet Mt.dew is not "Mt.dew"….it is absolutely disgusting and an insult to the real thing.

  29. Paddles McBean on November 25, 2022 at 5:32 am

    I’ve had Olga knives for over 20 years. And the idiot politicians made plastic straws illegal in Western Australia based on no evidence just feeling like it might make a difference. They are what you Americans call a liberal.

  30. Neeboopsh on November 25, 2022 at 5:34 am

    i dated the worlds simplest studfinder. she is very simple, but has no problem finding studs

  31. Fix This Build That on November 25, 2022 at 5:34 am

  32. Theopheus on November 25, 2022 at 5:37 am

    I’ve never understood the obsession with 1-2-3 blocks. I have yet to see a use for them that I would need.

    I think it started with the maker craze on youtube, which quite honestly I was kinda behind for a while until I watched a huge maker channel (maker in the name, lots of subscribers) build a rotisserie for his car. He welded the rotisseries, gave bad welding advice, but then ultimately used ratcheting straps to tie them together to keep the car stable. It was extremely unsafe, particularly if he was planning on welding on the car.

    I’ve done some sketchy, unsafe things in my life, both in my hobbies and on the job sites, but I would NEVER put out a tutorial, or educational video out with one of these shady methods allowing someone else to get hurt and that drove home to me the point that so called "Makers" are largely self-taught, experimenters, and maybe just shouldn’t be teachers.

  33. Tom B on November 25, 2022 at 5:39 am

    Paper straws instead of plastic….you know for the environment.

  34. Sir Skaven on November 25, 2022 at 5:40 am

    If you don’t already have one, DeWalt makes an (I wanna say 8v) Gyroscopic screwdriver that I got from home Depot like 7 years ago. And it’s awesome

  35. Atarian6502 on November 25, 2022 at 5:43 am

    Gringo makes fun of metric system.. twice… 😀 😀 😀 Bravo! That is another level of ignorance 😀

  36. Rob Lowe on November 25, 2022 at 5:43 am

    Amazon does have a 0.9mm version of that pentel pencil. We have that and also bought a 20 pack of cheap mechanical pencils to keep everywhere in the shop and kitchen since I only have the pentel when I need it 40% of the time.

  37. surgio98 on November 25, 2022 at 5:44 am

    Don’t use the Olfa as a screwdriver. Bent the tip and had to reshape it to get the blade out again.

  38. jlb on November 25, 2022 at 5:44 am

    for a long time, i used a pentel graphgear 500 as my drawing pencil, which doesn’t have the retractable tip like the 1000 does. i would constantly have little scratches on my leg from keeping it in my pocket. but it was the best mechanical pencil i’ve ever owned. those things are nigh indestructible.

  39. Ethan Eagleton on November 25, 2022 at 5:45 am

    Brooo I had that pencil in school! Used it for my entire 4 years of highschool 😂

  40. rryanb81982 on November 25, 2022 at 5:46 am

    As far as stud finders go, I rely on my C.H. Hansen stud finder. It has a built in level.

  41. Scott Albers on November 25, 2022 at 5:51 am

    Depending on the tolerance, the 1-2-3 blocks can also make good parallels for machining.

  42. TunaSoda on November 25, 2022 at 5:53 am

    Dewalt Razor: DWHT10045 mmm 🙂

  43. David Thomas on November 25, 2022 at 5:53 am

    I use a "Cordless Air Duster Blower" (that I bought on AliExpress) every single day in my workshop. It’s a high powered air blaster that can be used for blowing away saw dust from tables, tools, jigs, and even your clothes.

    I don’t have an air compressor and this blower is relatively cheap (about USD$30) and is USB rechargeable.

    I would definitely recommend it for any sized workshop!

  44. Legofan2676 on November 25, 2022 at 5:57 am

    Nother good use for straws is shimming depending on the thickness of the straw, cut it just right enough that you can set it on like a pully shaft to get a better friction fit.

  45. Abraham Alejandro Morgado on November 25, 2022 at 5:57 am

    Omg this video is so bright, please add some dark colors into those cabinets for viewers sake

  46. Michael B on November 25, 2022 at 5:59 am

    I absolutely love the Pentel Graphgear series, I used to have the whole Graphgear 1000 0.3 mm, 0.4 mm, 0.5 mm, 0.7 mm, 0.9 mm set. My ONLY problem with them is they broke so fast. I was lucky if lasted longer than 1 semester.

  47. BobP on November 25, 2022 at 5:59 am

    I also use the tongue depressors as sanding sticks as well the coffee stirrers.

  48. R2 D3 on November 25, 2022 at 6:01 am

    You should check out the Knipex 90 10 165 BK Utility knife!!

  49. Jacob Hanna on November 25, 2022 at 6:05 am

    i like certain wheel based knife locks, lets me operate them with my pinky, depending on how stiff it is

  50. Lidge1994 on November 25, 2022 at 6:05 am

    Don’t 90% of scalpels or "Utility knives" as they’re apparently called over there have a locking feature where you just push the blade out, then pull back a portion to lock it? Sometimes it’s like a rocker, so you push the slider to lock it. Only ones I don’t find it on are insanely cheap, tiny ones that won’t need it as they’re too cheap to afford anything but the blade, plastic housing and sliding mechanism.
