Hi, and welcome to The Tool Report.

This project started out as a way to review tools we used around the house. Over the years we have morphed into a resource for more than just power tools.

Yes, we still cover tools, but we also cover products and topics that many homeowners AND parents must use on a daily basis. This includes software to help keep tabs on our kids, lawn equipment, sewing machines, welding equipment, and whole lot more.

As we find the need for certain products we like to give them a try and share our thoughts. Below you can find out a little bit more about what we’re all about at The Tool Report, and a little bit about our editorial team.

What We’re About

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 Writing Team

Jason Thompson – Tools & Tech

With over 25 years in the information and internet security industry I am passionate about smartphones, gadgets, and technology. I’ve also got a solid background in programming and software.  This includes python, C++, app development and more.

Most of his recent career has been devoted to programming in smartphone apps for both iOS and Android devices. This knowledge makes him an expert on phone security features as well as methods of enhancing the security of a phone. He has tackled many of our more challenging tech related articles.

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.

If you would like to get in contact with me, please email me at [email protected]. You can also find me on Linkedin.
