Metabo HPT 18V Cordless Compact Drill Driver Review

MetaboHPT puts on a clinic on how to win a drill shootout. Its compact drill’s balance of competitive speed in high and class-leading soft torque in low expand what we can expect performance in this class. In the midst of all that, it keeps its weight and size in check, doesn’t overlook anything major on its feature set, and comes in at an attractive price. When we strip away the subjective and look solely at the objective data, the Metabo HPT DS18DBFL2 is the most complete cordless drill in its class. We recently tested more than 50 drills of various shapes, sizes, and power ratings in our recent Best Drill Head to Head Review. The Metabo HPT DS18DBFL2 compact drill entered the 18V competition along with its hammer drill counterpart. Rebranding or not, this Metabo HPT 18V cordless compact drill showed up to our shootout with a point to prove. Not only did it muscle its way to the top of our torque tests, but it also showed us how to balance performance and value. MetaboHPT puts on a clinic on how to win a drill shootout.

American Airlines is ‘reimbursing passenger for lost luggage after she spotted her clothes being sold on Facebook’

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. A WOMAN was left feeling “violated” after her belongings were stolen from her bag following an American Airlines flight – only for her to spot them on sale on Facebook. Kinley Rice, from Tulsa, claimed items worth thousands of dollars were removed from her suitcase when travelling through the airport. She claims that a brand new Patagonia jacket, which can cost more than £200, was stolen, along with other things such as jumpers, leggings and her toiletry bag. Kinely said her biggest concern was her luggage tag, which was missing, as it contained her personal information. She later found a Patagonia jacket – the same as hers – being sold on Facebook Marketplace for $135 (£104). To check if it was hers, she matched the bar code of the tag on the jacket with the numbers on her receipt – which matched. After realising it was hers, she says she tracked down the seller, who was an employee of Tulsa International Airport, working at baggage services. Kinley added it was “scary” as she was in a hotel room by herself, ...

The ROBORanger is a portable alarm with 911 and GPS functionality built in. In a dicey

The ROBORanger is a portable alarm with 911 and GPS functionality built in. In a dicey situation, all a user has to do is pull the plug from the top of the device and it will first emit a 130 decibel alarm. Simultaneously, it will call 911 and text message your friends and family letting them know that you are in danger and sending your exact GPS coordinates. A 130 decibel alarm is very loud. It’s like listening to a jet taking off. It’s louder than a thunderclap. The idea is that that sound alone should be enough to deter an attacker (in fact, the company also markets their sound grenades as an alternative to bear spray). “People put alarms on their homes and cars, but not themselves or their children. Why not? Life is much more valuable, I think,” Sam Mansen, Robocopp’s CEO said in a release. The nice thing about ROBORanger is what it doesn’t do: it doesn’t track users when they aren’t in danger. The device is not on when it isn’t activated. It isn’t constantly logging carriers’ location as they go about their lives, like some of the bracelets for children that we reported on previously. The GPS only activates when a user pulls the plug. Otherwise, it’s dormant, which we confi...

A REAL bone-chiller! Trick-or-treaters face a -4C Halloween night

Trick-or-treaters face a -4C Halloween night in parts of Britain ahead of a washout weekend and a risk of snow toward the end of next week.  Sub-zero temperatures will hit tomorrow, with chilly but sunny spells across the north-east of England while the south-west suffers showers.

We get it. Scrubbing toilets and vacuuming floors, while not as bad as getting a root

We get it. Scrubbing toilets and vacuuming floors, while not as bad as getting a root canal, are undeniably less fun than most other ways to spend your free time. Unfortunately, housework is a necessary evil, unless you don’t mind living in less-than-healthy surroundings. Still, there are ways to make the job easier and more tolerable.  Start by tackling a small amount of cleaning each day, rather than waiting until the job seems insurmountable without wiping out your entire weekend. Having basic cleaning tools and products on-hand also makes life easier. The 10 minutes you have slotted to clean the toilet shouldn’t be the time to discover you don’t have any disinfectant in the house. Your cleaning supplies should be kept together in a central location, making it easy to grab what you need when it’s time to take care of chores. If your home is large or multistoried, keep an extra supply of disinfecting wipes under the sink in each bathroom, where they are handy for quick touch-ups. Here are the 14 essential cleaning supplies and tools every home needs. Then, check out our buying guides on the best cleaning products and gadgets you can buy. Nothing says, &...

DED Metal 3D Printing Goes Desktop with ADDiTEC > ENGINEERING.com

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Some startups jump into public view with a big splash. Others simply get in and start quietly swimming. This is the case for Las Vegas-based ADDiTEC, which introduced a comparatively low-cost desktop metal 3D printing system to no fanfare just six weeks ago. Unlike other firms that have garnered significant media attention and investment, but have been slow to ship actual products, ADDiTEC is entirely self-funded and is already delivering its directed energy deposition (DED) 3D printer to customers. Moreover, the technology is capable of printing both metal wire and metal powder, separately or in a hybrid fashion, which is, as far as we are aware, previously unseen in the industry. To learn more about ADDiTEC and its technology, we spoke to the company’s CEO and founder, Brian Matthews. Before we jump into the backstory of the company, you may want to know a bit more about the desktop DED technology that ADDiTEC is manufacturing. Dubbed the μPrinter (read aloud as “micro printer”), the system is a $90,000 machine capable of 3D printing bo...

While testing Hyundai’s new V6-powered, 4,400-pound Palisade SUV, I drove the majority of the week in

While testing Hyundai’s new V6-powered, 4,400-pound Palisade SUV, I drove the majority of the week in Eco mode. Usually that fuel-saving mode for engine and transmission performance is a no-go for its maddeningly spongy throttle response. For those who keep an eye on the fuel gauge, the Palisade’s Eco calibration is actually usable for the majority of driving. Immediate launch power is somewhat reserved, as is close-the-gap acceleration on the highway, but in between it worked to convince me I was saving fuel and emissions in a 16.3-foot-long family hauler. It compares with the Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, Mazda CX-9, Nissan Pathfinder, Subaru Ascent, VW Atlas and platform partner, the Kia Telluride. The 2020 Palisade is sold in front- or all-wheel drive (HTRAC) models, all with a 291-horsepower 3.8-liter, Atkinson-cycle, direct-injection V-6 and eight-speed automatic transmission. The EPA fuel-economy ratings for front-drive models are 19 mpg city, 26 highway and 22 mpg combined or 19/24/21 mpg with HTRAC. In the AWD tester, I was averaging 14-21 mpg around town and I worked up to 21 mpg combined with highway driving, and it likely would have risen with more...

Samsung Electronics left no stone unturned when examining ways to make the Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy

Samsung Electronics left no stone unturned when examining ways to make the Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy Note10+ the most powerful Notes yet. From their sleek and slim designs to their pro-grade video tools, upgraded Super-Fast Charging, AI features and ultra-versatile S Pen, each and every element of Samsung’s latest flagships has been optimized to offer users a smartphone experience that’s second to none. For the first time ever, Samsung is introducing not one but two new Galaxy Note models. The 6.3-inch Galaxy Note10 is 0.1 inches smaller than the Galaxy Note9, and perfect for those who want all the power and performance that comes with the newest Note, but in a more compact form. The 6.8-inch Galaxy Note10+, meanwhile, is a full 0.4 inches bigger than last year’s Note, and boasts the largest display that the series has ever seen. Both models feature elegant forms that build on the Note series’ premium design heritage. But what makes the Galaxy Note10’s design so striking boils down to more than simply looks. It’s also exceptionally light and thin, weighing in at 196 grams[1] and measuring just 7.9mm thick. During the development process, Samsung trimmed down key components to ens...
