This Woodworking Wizard Turns A Single Block Of Wood Into A Chain 

Video: This is a really neat woodworking project from Matthias Wandel: turning a single piece of wood into a chain just by using power tools.

Insanely Strong Wire Cutter Snips Cables As Fat As Your Finger

Cutting wire by hand is hard — even with a pair of light-up dikes — especially when running the fat wires that serve breaker subpanels. Milwaukee’s new ratcheting power cable cutter should aid the tradesmen that spend days snipping conduit; pull the trigger, and the tool bites cords with up to 5,000 pounds per square inch of pressure.
