Hydraulic Chainsaw

 This was the best day ever. I cut through at least 10 trees this morning and I had a great experience with this brand new chainsaw.

Today I will be reviewing the GreenLee Hydraulic Standard Chain Saw HCS816 recommended to me by my buddy.

 A few days ago a worker from the local Tree Service company in Simi Valley, CA came to take care of some of the trees on the side of my house. Continue reading “Hydraulic Chainsaw”


The best workbench

Welcome back to Frank Hatch’s Hatch.  Today we’re going to be reviewing something that I’ve enjoyed owning for over a year now.  As you know Husky is a construction appliance company that has been around since 1924.

 I will be reviewing the 9-Drawer Black out mobile workbench with solid wood top.  This magnificent piece of construction tool is considered a piece of art to me.  It is 46inch long of Solid para wood with protective coating so that you can do all you work right on the bench!  the drawers and bottom end are constructed entirely with heavy duty all steel with an industrial powder coated finish.  

It sounds so organized and lovely right? well it gets better once you hear my review.  This is an incredibly durable and useful workbench I have ever bought.  After a year of owning this workbench I’ve already bought 2 more of them to make a long bench in my garage.  It carries all my tools an such an organized fashion and their is never any problems with the drawers.  2 years ago I bought a workbench quite similar to this expect that everything was less durable. 

It’s easy for a company to make a nice looking workbench but what is real talent is the durability of the product.  This wood does not dent and keeps its form because it is extremely pressed and professionally finished.  Unlike other workbenches this kind of Steel does not dent or bend.  Heavy duty steel is always a must for anything involving tools.  The wheels at the bottom of my two year old workbench broke and this is very sad considering the most important part of a workbench is the wheels.  

You can expect any workbench to weigh 300-1000 pounds if it completely full with tools.  This means that it requires the strongest types of wheels to support the weight.  How are you going to manage when you’re walking around the backyard fixing things with your tools and all of a sudden a wheel fails.  How are you going to move the workbench? A crane?

I highly recommend this to anyone that owns any amount of tools.  Thank you for reading my review on the 9-drawer Black out Mobile Workbench with Solid Wood Top by

Milwaukee M18 Toolkit Review

Today is a special day! We are doing a Review on the “Milwaukee 2696-29 M18 Tool”.  So I ordered my bag straight from the Milwaukee Site and received it about four days ago.  I’ve been playing around bit with all the tools and I’ve only found good things in all. Wow am I impressed with the amount of tools and quality.  If I were to buy these items separately I could be looking at spending $2000+.

Sunshine and Tacos

Today was a frustrating day, it just seems like there is always a problem with one thing in my life.  I’m writing this blog after a long sunny day relaxing at home and enjoying the nice food my wife is cooking up.  Although there is always this one problem in my life and today it was the Skylight.  See, I have this remote control skylight in the kitchen right over the island.  My wife, Lara, was cooking fish tacos so it was important that all the nasty smell wouldn’t be floating around the house and would go straight out the skylight. Today was not the best day for the skylight remote because it decided to not work, or so I thought.  After playing with the remote little I noticed the green light that beeps whenever I try to open the skylight.  This means that it was not the remote malfunctioning and I needed to call my skylight install and repair friends.   Continue reading “Sunshine and Tacos”

Review: SD Driver by WORX

Back to Franks hatch with a unsponsored review of “SD Driver W/ Screw Holder” by WORX.  This is a high quality tool that comes at an amazing price.  The price at the WORX website is 39.99.  It includes a three year warranty & a thirty day guarantee.  Here are some of the features of the Semi-automatic driver that comes with a screw holder. It is considered the most convenient cordless screwdriver ever.  It comes with a slide-action features that changes to the correct bit instantly.

You can switch between bits in seconds with the SD Driver by works.  What makes this driver so good is that the bits are never last because of a rapid reloadable cartridge that houses 6 screw bits.  The SD Driver works with any 1/4 insert bit so you don’t have to worry you will get anything done, super quickly.maxresdefault Continue reading “Review: SD Driver by WORX”
