I just bought a new 2017 Honda Ridgeline. I thought this web browser was a pretty cool little addition so I figured I’d make a video showing it off quick!
Expect more videos to come as I totally love this truck. Not only that, they’ll be real videos because I’m putting out my hard earned dinero towards car payments, rather than the million videos from people who got to borrow the truck for 3 days.
I’d like to announce the following change. Firworks is being renamed to Firlights. It seems natural considering how many lighting videos I’m putting out, and how many I COULD make in the future. Nah.
I don’t know why but I buy a lot of lights: work lights, drop lights, flash lights, and even ceiling lights.
When Home Depot started running a deal for the new Milwaukee TRUEVIEW M18 Work Light I knew I was going to have to buy it. It just seemed too cool. Once I got it in I got curious how it compared against old halogen lights like I had used in the past. My halogen work light’s bulb was burnt out long ago as I’ve been using the Snap-On one from Costco for a few months now. I headed to the local Menards to get a new bulb and discovered I should basically just buy a whole new light as they were so cheap!
Thus, this shoot out was born.
I think I fixed it!
After I made the last video on this tool, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I was really puzzled.
The Dremel VRT1-1/5 is the archetypal Father’s Day present. It’s exactly the sort of thing an unsuspecting child or spouse would see and think, “Hey, Dad has a shop vac. He sands wood. I bet that’s a big mess. This would make things a lot easier for him! He’ll love it!”
Kids, spouses, take my advice. Dad will not love this. I don’t know if Dad will be able to feign loving it.
I picked this up at Lowe’s for 9$. It looks like they are clearancing them out, though I don’t know if that is because pinewood derby season is over (under?) or if it’s because they are no longer going to carry this thing.
This is a followup to my first light shootout video, which can be found here:
When I originally did the light shootout, it seemed strange to me how dim the CAT COB light looked but I let it go for a while. It kept bugging me and finally I came up with the answer. The batteries were dying! I created this video to set the record straight and accurately show the brightness of the CAT COB light in comparison to the Milwaukee M12 LED Stick light and the Astro Pneumatics inspection light.
Sssh… It’s a secrete.
This fun little video is the result of some brainstorming new hammer ideas for Trusty-Cook over on the Garage Journal forums.
Sadly they don’t offer a hammer like this yet in real life but maybe some day!

Thought I’d do a short (long) video about some of the portable lights I’ve got. In this video I compare the CAT CT1000, Astro Pneumatic 63071, the Milwaukee M12 2351-20 LED Stick, the Milwaukee M12 49-24-0145 Incandescent Work Light, and the “Snap-On” 922261 LED Drop Light.
NOTE: I’ve made a followup video to correct a mistake I made in this shootout. The CAT CT1000 batteries were running low and the light is much dimmer than normal. You can view the updated performance of the CT1000 with fresh batteries here:
