Best place to find honest reviews, heard its probably the fastest growing review site in the market, allowing trades to find the reviews they need left by other trades before buying. probably

Quite new to the app but it’s seems really good so far, good deals every week and a good community too, nice to see what real people in the trade think about the tools and equipment you are interested in. Only downside is the profanity filter, seems to trigger on the silliest things.

What a great app and idea! Good deals, not yet found one that I really need but I’m sure I will. Regular giveaways too for those with 5 or more reviews. I have tools and products from a few brands that are not listed, so I’m struggling to get to the top level of 25 reviews. I guess reviewing Tool Talk is an easy start to racking up those reviews though!

Great app. Easy to use and the deals are great. Saves time with research for tools as I can just come here and look at genuine reviews from genuine trades people minus the arguments about what brand is best red, green or yellow. If the review says it’s great then that’s what I’m having regardless of the brand.

CK SWA cutter/stripper

This tool literally saves half my day, makes SWA work a breeze! The blades seem to last forever and the shape makes using it effortless, if I were still using the old hacksaw method I would probably have packed it in a long time ago. Although people may say its a bit expensive for what you actually get, I definitely wouldn’t be without it and will definitely replace it with another.

Also, are you going to add Paslode and Dremmel to the list of brands? I use both in my work. Just ideas. Thanks

Well a very hard one to say since there’s such a big range. Is it a power tool or a hand tool?

For a power tool then I guess I’ll go for the latest Milwaukee MX range. The MX 100mm diamond core drill.

For a Hand tool, then it’ll have to be the Wera Kraftform Kompact set
