Episode 5: Tools

Welcome to episode 5! This was recorded over a week ago, and was meant to be posted last Monday 10/25…but of course I got busy with Thanksgiving coming up and forgot to post it!  So sorry for the delay guys, we’ll be back on our usual schedule of 1 show a week starting next week.  We are trying to get on a schedule for posting shows on Mondays, however it will probably be the second week of December before we can get enough audio recorded ahead of schedule and stick to it.

Anyways, on to tools.  This podcast discusses all the types of tools for your home or small shop. We tried to make a pretty comprehensive list, but I’m sure there are plenty of things missing.  Listen through the show, look through our notes, and let us know if you have any questions or comments as always!
