Sears, why oh why are you doing this to us? Don’t you know that my wallet’s already suffering! Yet you still choose to tempt me with deals of borderline insanity! 40% off plus 10% off (or more according to the “buy more save more” promo), and then yet another 20% off for Craftsman Club members, […]
Sears’ Craftsman brand has launched its own stand-alone online store!! Perhaps this is the beginning of an autonomous Craftsman that I have been dreaming about for years? Here are my observations thus far: The Craftsman store seems to be based off of Sears’ shopping engine The Craftsman store only offers for sale Craftsman products (duh) […]

A television commercial promoting the Craftsman Nextec Auto-Hammer has aired recently – no doubt targeting Father’s Day gift shoppers, so we’ve decided to revisit it. Although it may still seem a bit gimmicky, the Auto-Hammer is innovative enough that it deserves the attention.
With Father’s Day soon approaching, Home Depot has launched several enticing new gift card designs including one that comes with a free 3/16″ drill bit, and one that looks and feels like duct tape. These designs are not available online (yet?) – head on over to your nearest Home Depot to check them out. I […]
A few days ago in Austrailia, a doctor used a household drill to bore into a 13 year old’s skull to relieve pressure on his brain due to a blood clot. The drill was sourced from the maintenance closet since the hospital was not equipped with any neurological drills. Now I’m wondering, what drill was […]
Okay, so calling the Pocket Ref an ultimate guide to everything may be an exaggeration, but not by as much as you might think. The Pocket Ref is packed full of indispensable information for construction workers, engineers, scientists, travelers, and pretty much everyone else. While a majority of the book offers technical details, there are also many useful general-interest tidbits such as a […]

I was browsing Channellock’s website the other day and was quite pleasantly surprised by what I found. As you can see from the above screen capture, Channellock is openly disclosing that their screwdrivers and nutdrivers are made overseas. That open disclosure (not the fact that the drivers are imported) should be praised. You may be wondering […]
Gearwrench has recently (and quietly) released a new tool – a 12″ indexing nail puller. This tool combines the efficiency and ease of a cat’s paw puller design with the convenience of a pivoting lever arm with 180° of swing. This indexing puller is intended to be used in tight quarters and between closely spaced beams, and likely performs […]

Gearwrench 1/4″ and 3/8″ socket sets are on sale for $20 each over at Sears.

Each set comes with a full-polish ratchet, two extension bars, […]
Racor’s spray can rack holds 6 cans or similarly sized bottles neatly and out of the way. The rack, constructed from 14ga steel and coated with a durable epoxy finish, installs quickly and easily, and barely takes up any more space than the 6 cans it holds. While we have seen quite a few DIY […]
