This post about Milwaukee tools is sponsored by The Home Depot. Making your workshop space functional is a matter of layout, organization and most importantly TOOLS! Let’s look at three Milwaukee tools that are perfect for your workshop.
Three Milwaukee tools for your workshop. Including the framing square, cordless stubby impact wrench and cordless power tower light.
Tools that you didn’t realize you needed until you have them and now you can’t live without them. This is exactly how I feel about these three Milwaukee tools.
Milwaukee Tools for the Workshop:
Let’s start with the framing square because it’s extremely versatile and can be used in the workshop and beyond. Almost all workshop projects require a square. I used to rely on just a little rafter square. It wasn’t until I had this Milwaukee 16″ x 24″ size square did I understand exactly how useful a framing square can be.
In all honesty a framing square is typically used by carpenters when building framing for structures. This framing square is marked with 8th, 10th, 12th and 16th graduation marks for classic framing projects. But I’m using it here to keep my boards square while joining.
The Milwaukee framing square has high visibility markings in white which contrast against the red background. This makes measurements easy to read. You can also see the angle finding markings which is great for setting common miter cuts and pipe angles.
I recently used this framing square to help layout the jail pieces for the superhero playhouse. The thick, stronger than steel, frame makes the perfect place to align the pieces up against the measurements. Also note the scribe notches running from 1″ to 13″ for ripping lumber. PS – There’s a little bonus on the flat portion of the square. Did you see the common conversion tables?
M12 Cordless Stubby Impact Wrench:
- most compact impact wrench on the market
- 4 mode drive control
- powered by M12 RedLithium battery
Get a look at the Milwaukee M12 cordless brushless 3/8″ stubby impact wrench in my hand! It is the most compact impact wrench on the market measuring only 4.8″. This means it can fit into super tight spaces.
Lastly and perhaps most important is the Milwaukee M18 cordless dual power tower light. My workshop does have lights but they’re not ideal. And being able to see your project pieces makes a huge difference in quality. This tower light is dual power which means it can be powered by either an M18 battery or an extension cord. The light head can be extended from 4 feet high up to 7 feet high depending on where and how you need light.
Milwaukee Power Tower Light:
- 3 modes: high (2500 lumens), medium (1100 lumens), low (700 lumens)
- provides neutral white color
- reinforced legs with stable base
- portable and stores compact
You can see below the difference it makes when I turn the light on. I can clearly see what I’m working on and I can move the light anywhere I need it. Truly a great tool to have on hand especially for those dreary, dark winter days.
