As mentioned in the recent tool sightings post, I had visited London this past July. The trip was quite leisurely paced, so I had time to scout out a few tool shops, the first of which was The Tool Shop in Victoria. Overall the store was a rather disappointing and bland experience. Following are the notes […]
For a limited time, Woodcraft is having a sale on Bora pistol grip bar clamps. The sale is for 25%-off, and ends on November 25th. Even better, coupon code 11230 gets you free shipping as well, until November 30th. These look like decent clamps, and the price is pretty decent – $10.49 for the 6″ […]
Kershaw’s E.T. external toggle knife is one sleek looking blade. Relatively lightweight at 3.7 ounces, the E.T. features a 6061-T6 anodized aluminum handle, and 3-1/4″ Sandvik 13C26 stainless steel blade with a bead-blasted finish. These are decent specs, but what really sets this knife apart from ordinary pocket folders is its unique toggle mechanism.
From now until 4am Monday morning (11/16/09) Sears is holding a VIP sale where all tools are discounted by 10%. Sounds great to us! We’re taking advantage of this promo ourselves to order a pair of Grip-on pliers and a few other items to try out. Don’t forget that coupon code SEARS5OFF50 will take $5 […]

Hot on the heels of their recent SquidBrite work light, Stanley has released a new heavy duty clamping flashlight. The head of the lamp can rotate 350° and tilt 120° to ensure that it can focus light in any direction you need it to, and with its large floodlight bulb the flashlight can illuminate large […]
The first ever MVT (most valuable tool of the week) award is actually shared by two tools – a Wiha ergonomic screwdriver, and a 4oz Vaughan ball pein hammer.
ToolGuyd is excited to announce a new contest – the Most Valuable Tool of the Week (MVT) contest. Every week for the next four weeks, we will be featuring one or more tools that have been nominated as MVTs. We will start off the contest with an entry of our own, and will post about the first reader-submitted MVT starting next week.
With the Porter Cable low-profile sander giveaway ending in a few days, we thought that it might be a good opportunity to get some light hands-on time with the tool. Despite our superficial evaluation, we are thoroughly impressed with the features and build quality of the sander.
The above image says it all. Head on over to MSC’s website, and put promo code MWMANIA40W to good use. Don’t forget that the promo is only valid for today, Nov. 12th.
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 […]
In our recent review of C.H. Hanson’s Precision Ball Level, we mention that the level can measure angles in degrees or in pitch. Well, following is the definition of pitch for those that are unfamiliar with the term as used in this context. Pitch as measured by the ball level, refers to the slope of a […]
We received a secret tip that on Nov 11th, starting at 12:01am, Sears will be discounting the Craftsman Hammerhead Auto Hammer to $90, which reflects a savings of $10. The promotion will last all day or until 500 units are sold, whichever comes first. Craftsman Hammerhead Auto Hammer via Sears Personal note: This tool may […]
Two months ago to the date, we shared with you our very positive first impressions of C.H. Hanson’s Precision Ball Level. Since then, we have used the level quite a bit for various projects and tasks, and not only has it not disappointed us yet, it has exceeded our most demanding expectations. Following is our […]
Over at Amazon, the Dremel Multi-Max oscillating tool is discounted to $84 on Amazon, which is quite a bit lower than the $100 we saw it going for the other day. In case you were wondering, the Dremel Multi-Max along with their new 4000 series rotary tool are high up on our wish list. While we have seen […]
