We’ve been hearing some good feedback about the American Hammer deal we recently posted about, so we figured an update/reminder was in order. During this promotion, American Hammer is offering direct sales at an incredible discount – $25 (shipped!) for any style non-marring hammer under 2 lbs.
There’s definitely something strange going on between Sears and their Craftsman brand, and I have a feeling that it goes way beyond the recent agreement to sell Craftsman tools at Ace Hardware. Just take a look at the cover of Sears’ 2010-2011 tool catalog – Craftsman tools are missing!
I was doing some online shopping when I came across a flash advertisement for Brother printers that featured what looks to be a pair of Channellock disagonal pliers. Cool. I whipped out a pair of Channellock cutters, and compared the two, finding that the cutters in the ad were most definitely modeled after the Channellocks.
Okay, so we are now on Facebook. We’re not quite sure what we’re going to do over there, but whatever it is, it’ll be fun. Maybe we’ll launch an exclusive giveaway that only fans can enter. If you’ve got an idea, let’s hear it! Here’s the link to our ToolGuyd page at Facebook, all ready […]
Some hobbyists and DIYers risk eye injury and occasionally forego wearing safety goggles, with the most common excuse being that they’re uncomfortable to wear. While safety glasses can sometimes be an appropriate alternative, and are certainly better than nothing, there are times when goggles are required. The goggle styles discussed in this mini-review are exceptionally […]
Felo’s popular 5pc beech wood handled screwdriver set is once again on sale for $20 via Rockler, and is eligible for this week’s free shipping promotion. Don’t forget that coupon code V0742 is required for free shipping. Our set of these drivers is currently MIA, but I’m fairly certain that they’re made in Germany. Felo 5pc Screwdriver […]

Dremel recently announced the winners of their 30 Minute Miracles Contest. If you recall, contest entrants were asked to share home improvement and remodeling tips that could be completed with the use of a Dremel rotary tool in 30 minutes or less.
American Hammer is offering an incredible deal right now with an interesting catch. If you promise to write an unbiased and honest review of your purchase, American Hammer will sell you any brass, bronze, or copper hammer under 2 pounds for $25, and that includes shipping fees.

Johnson Level’s 16′ Big Johnson Power Tape is one heck of a nice tape measure! The Big J is durable, extremely easy to read, has a great locking mechanism, and includes a handy detachable belt clip.
Lee Valley just announced a new line of Veritas detail rabbet planes, which are now available in 5 sizes. These very slender planes ( Lee Valley describes them as pocket-sized), can be used for fine controlled and precice cuts that typically call for a chisel, such as when cleaning dados or grooves.
Final Cut has just announced the addition of a new 7-1/4″ circular saw blade to their product lineup. Also available in 10″ and 12″ sizes, the Final Cut saw blade features sanding discs on each side of the blade, allowing it to both cut and sand workpieces at the same time.
There are a few updated details about the new partnership between Sears, Craftsman, and Ace Hardware that we thought you would find interesting. That, and we cannot keep our thoughts about this to ourselves for any longer.

Did you know that Fastenal has a SmartStore program which sets up vending machines at industrial shops and factories? These vending machines can be stocked with first aid supplies, safety consumables such as goggles and gloves, cutting tools, general MRO supplies, and other such regularly used items.
Joby just added a new magnetic flexible legged mini tripod to their Gorillapod lineup. Our biggest gripe with the Gorillatorch, although minor, is that we could not [easily] modify it for use with 3rd party flashlights. Although the new Gorillapod Magnetic is intended for use with P&S cameras, it shouldn’t be too difficult to craft a custom […]

Early reports are saying that the partnership will start with 100 Ace stores carrying about 10% of the Craftsman product line by May. It has not yet been decided if Sears will roll out this “store-within-a-store Craftsman offering” to all 4500 […]
