You guys surprised me yesterday. When I announced the KC Tool giveaway (ends 6/26/2015), I expected you guys to break my inbox with entry comments. There are some great comments and entries so far, but not anywhere as many as I anticipated. Maybe asking you to pick any prize you want for under $75 was a bit off-putting.
So here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to fire off a series of posts briefly discussing tools that I would want to enter to win. If the tool strikes your fancy, go to the KC Tool Giveaway Post and leave a comment telling me what you want to win and why.
I have already written about the Knipex Pliers Wrench before, and it usually needs no introduction. It’s a very high leverage smooth-jaw plier that can be used in wrenching applications in place of an adjustable wrench.
I use my Knipex Pliers Wrenches for so many things, from turning fasteners when I need an extra or adjustable wrench, to press-fitting small parts together. The jaws have a parallel action which is useful for many random and impromptu applications. I snapped my watch case back together once with these pliers, as they were forceful but delicate enough so as to not mar the front or back.
I must have read about the Knipex Pliers Wrench 10 times before I finally mustered up the budget to buy one. And then I bought another. I don’t remember the order, but I have two of these – 7″ and 10″, both with plastic-dipped grips. You could also spend a little extra for the cushion-grip ones.
Oh, and if you already have a couple of these in your toolbox, maybe you’d like to try the 5″ or 6″ mini Pliers Wrench models. They’re quite pricey, which makes them perfect as giveaway items. Maybe you wouldn’t buy one for yourself, but surely you’d like to win one?
Here’s the link to Pliers Wrenches category at KC Tool, in case you want to look over the size and handle style options. Remember, the giveaway value is $75 max. We might be able to extend that a couple of dollars, such as if the one you want is priced at $75.79, but I can’t stretch it much beyond that.
Keep in mind that there will be (4) winners, and so you have good chances to win the giveaway.
