To enter last week’s Toolsday’s giveaway, you had to identify a fancy brass contraption. We had a few correct answers – it was an antique yacht binnacle, which is a fancy word for a nautical compass holder. The two cylinders on the side of the binnacle hold lamp oil so sailors could read the compass at night.
We randomly picked 12 winners out of all the comments and these lucky people will all be contacted via email. Ray H, Isabele101, Ken, Ronald Wilkinson, No_1_important, Gmadi1, Mary N., Harold Erb, Mkamrud, Scott boyll, Marilita14, and Jrmitchell.
Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a Troy-Built Weed Trimmer. This new 2012 model runs on a 20-volt lithium ion battery so you can take it anywhere. It’s lightweight, but powerful enough to tackle the toughest weeds. The blade provides a full 14-inch cutting swath to make the job go quicker and easier.
To win the Troy-Bilt Weed Trimmer, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this wooden thing pictured below is used for. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.
