Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Jawhorse Workstation

Last Toolsday, we posted a photo of a rectangular object with scalloped edges and asked you to tell us what it is.  Most people thought it was some kind of form or mold – we had guesses ranging from making pasta to cutting sod. But not too many people guessed the true material the mystery tool was designed to cut: leather.  

We randomly picked one winner from all the comments and that winner is jellybean22, who thought it was a brick mold.  Congrats Mr. or Ms. jellybean22, you have one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

For next week’s giveaway, take a look at the gadget pictured on the left, then post a comment (click “comments” above) and tell us what it is.  Next Tuesday we will randomly pick one of the comments from this post and that lucky person will receive a Rockwell RK900 Jawhorse.  The portable Jawhorse workstation can clamp up to 1 ton of anything you can imagine, letting you work hands-free no matter what you’re working on or where you’re working. Its solid all-steel construction provides exceptional strength and there are no moving plastic parts to break. The Jawhorse folds down to about the size of a piece of carry-on luggage. so you can easily tuck it away when the job is done.

On a different note: Is your kitchen in need of a facelift but you’re short on funds?  We’ve got some creative ways to re-do your backsplash that will cost you less than $50.  Plus, we’ve got kitchen storage projects for all DIY skill levels.  

On Tuesday, January 24, we will select the winner of the Rockwell Jawhorse workstation then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until January 24, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Rockwell Jawhorse

    to me it looks like something i just saw on a show that featured an antique used for removing teeth back in the day!! but i doubt that's what it is. It could be something that has to do with pipes ? (looks like one could fit in there). Really not sure

    It's a multipurpose tool that the Obama administration is hoping and praying to get him reelected for the second term. On a more social occasion you can use it to remove those pesky conservatives. And for you Democrats, if you order right now, we will also include another handy dandy tool to remove that pesky Republicans. If you Democrats order in the next five seconds we will send you two removers which when struck together will light up the whole situation.. Act now as offer is limited. Just pay separate shipping and handling.

    This offer is in no way connected with the DYI Network nor its affiliates, but approve by Obama administration

    I think it a tool for making and repairing shoes and boots.
