I have used a few of their products.
The folding chisels are a great idea for the ones you keep in your pouch/toolbox. The handle is sturdier than I would have expected.

OSB is not OSB, know what I mean? Advantek is a great product. I've also dealt with OSB that I'm convinced was engineered to provide horrific splinters and swell at the slightest rise in humidity....

Some of his stuff is pretty ingenious. It seems that he freely admits that his builds in most cases aren't really the most practical solution, he just likes doing it.

Not just recommended, but a must if you every try to make a warranty claim. Having said that, if you read the fine print, odds are you are doing something that will allow them to void the warranty.
