The Tool Report

About Us

Hi, and welcome to The Tool Report.

We provide our readers (like you!) with the all the information needed to make educated buying decisions on a wide variety of tools ranging from power tools to heavy duty equipment like plasma cutters.

What We Cover

These sorts of tools are expensive and there are lots of options.  We sort through all the information and test only the best names and brands.  Once we’ve tested them, we publish our thoughts so that you can see what makes the most sense for your particular needs.

Investing in good tools isn’t cheap, but when you want quality and durability, it’s worth the extra money to get a part that you know you’ll be able to rely on for years to come.

While our website started out as a place to discuss tools, it has grown to include other products that we’ve found useful in our home and with our family.  This includes sewing machines, quilting machines, software, and a handful of other odds and ends.

Our Team

Jason Thompson

In addition to working in the IT industry I am an avid DIYer.  Over the course of owning and renovating several homes I have learned a great deal about tools, construction, lawn maintenance, and a LOT more.  I started posting my thoughts on the tools I’ve used to help other homeowners sift through the mountains of information available online and find solid, reliable products.

In most of our reviews we discuss the part itself, the accessories that come with it, the instructions, warranty information, and necessary external accessories you’ll need to get it up and going.  Our comparisons are concise and easy to read, making your buying decision a snap.

In addition to working on our home I’m an avid tinkerer.  You can often find me down at the local DIY shop in my hometown where I get to play with all sorts of cool tools like welding equipment and plasma cutters.

Finally I’ve also got a solid background in programming and software.  As our children have grown, and now have cell phones, I’ve spent a great deal of time trying to fairly manage their time online.  As such I’ve tested a great many software packages designed to handle these tasks.  You’ll find all of these reviews in our software section.

Natalie Thompson

My wife Natalie is a contributing writer as well.  She is a professional seamstress with successful ETSY shop.  She handles all of our content on sewing.

Over the years of owning her sewing business she has bought and used quite a few sewing machines, sergers, and quilting machines.

It seemed only natural that she provide insight for others interested buying one of these pieces of equipment for themselves.

Her reviews offer firsthand knowledge and advice for anyone from a beginner to an advanced seamstress.  If you have any questions regarding our sewing machine reviews feel free to contact Natalie directly via email at [email protected]

We hope you’ll come back often to check out our site.  We’ll be highlighting new equipment all of the time.
