I get a kick out of tools spotted in TV shows and movies, don’t you?
Who knew that the Milwaukee M18 Rocket Tower LED worklight could serve as a futuristic earthquake sensor prop?
If you’ve watched the new Avengers Endgame teaser, what do you think of Nebula’s pliers?
Cool, even superheroes like Bosch tools.
A reader asked about a toolbox shown in Dexter, and we were able to find a quick ID! It’s a Stanley mobile multi-level combo.
So what kind of tools does Tony Stark go for? For starters, it appears he has a thing for Snap-on. With deep pockets like his, that’s to be expected. A Ridgid pipe wrench makes an appearance, and at one point he mentions Bridgeport by name. Here’s a list of what I spotted thus far along with a […]
By now, you probably know that we love random tool sightings, especially those in movies. About two weeks ago we went to see Inception. At one point in the movie, a main character uses a Dremel Stylus to carve away at her “totem.” There were a few other tools on the table, including what looked […]
The other day my mother remarked that Leatherman tools are heavily mentioned in The Ark, by Boyd Morisson. I have to say, this was extremely unexpected. Not that Leatherman multitools were featured in the book, but because my mother new what a Leatherman was. Kudos and thanks to her for the tool sighting, and kudos […]
I just watched one of Old Spice’s new amusing/patronizing/strange commercials, and spotted a brief Dewalt cameo. The actor uses the Dewalt 28V cordless circular saw as a prop, walking and cutting with it. Cool. Watch the commercial I can’t tell whether the saw is Dewalt’s 28V or 36V version. What do you guys think?
In Iron Man 2, there is a scene where Tony Stark wields a rather large pipe wrench to turn a valve. If you’ve watched the movie, did you catch the tool’s brand? It was a Ridgid branded aluminum pipe wrench.
I thought you might enjoy this image of pliers floating in the sky in England. It looks like a Google streetview driver briefly left pliers on top of his camera while mapping a neighborhood. Check out the blunder here, or via the story on Geekologie. Oh, and please feel free to share any clever captions you come […]
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.
Almost every time I pass a work zone or construction area, I try to take a peek at the tools being used. During my trip to London last July, I caught glimpse of a few city workers preparing to do minor work on a foot bridge. During this sighting, I spotted a [very well used] Dewalt cordless […]
