Dremel Lite 7760 Cordless Rotary Tool Review

We LOVE our Dremel tools. Seriously, we use them on just about every imaginable project where full-sized sanders, grinders, etc. are just too much.

A Simple Garage Stool

I recently put a smaller 4′ workbench in a corner of my garage dedicated to small projects like fixing electronics, working with the Dremel, etc. I knew I wanted a blue stool to match my new 44″ U.S. General toolbox, which is right next to the workbench.

Hands-On: Oldie but Goodie – JEGS Workbench Utility Mat
