Tuesday Toolsday Giveaway: What the Heck is it?

Last Toolsday’s mystery tool was in honor of Derby week. It is stall jack, a kind of portable anvil that a farrier uses to shoe horses.  We randomly picked one winner from all the comments and that lucky person is spazmom.  Congrats spazmom, you have one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

If you’re looking to hold some big sporting events in your backyard, we’ve got plenty of great ideas for building horseshoe pits, bocce ball courts and putting greens. Plus, find instructions on how to build a tiki bar, pergola and design ideas for fire pits.

Next Toolsday, we’ll be giving away a DIY safety-gear prize pack from 3M. It includes a set of cool Bono-like safety glasses, stereo headphones, and a sanding/fiberglass respirator. The perfect protection for your ears, eyes, nose and throat.

To enter, post a comment and tell us what you think the gadget below is for. We will randomly pick one comment from this post to win the safety gear. 

On Tuesday, May 17, we will select the winner then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until May 17, 2011, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the safety gear from 3M.
