Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Tool Bag and Tools

In order to enter last week’s giveaway, you had to identify a slotted wooden object pictured in last Tuesday’s post. We must have a lot of high rollers in the crowd because many people correctly guessed that it was a cigar mold used to roll cigars.  

We randomly picked one winner out of all last week’s comments and that lucky person is Windell who knew it was a cigar mold because he has one at home.  Congrats Windell, you have exactly one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday, we’ll be giving away a Bostitch tool bag filled with goodies. The open-mouth tool bag is made from hardwearing denier fabric with a waterproof plastic bottom. Inside this multi-compartment bag, the winner will find a pair of titanium-coated cutting blades, a magnetic torpedo level, a 10″ adjustable wrench, a twin-blade utility knife, and a handy little nail set.

To win the Bostitch kit, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what profession uses this scale (below) and what material are they measuring.  You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

Have you ever wondered what the difference was between a worm-drive saw and a circular saw but were afraid to ask? Or you’re just not sure if you’re using your tools the right way? Then check out Tools Central where you’ll find tips and techniques for the best way to use the most common home improvement gadgets.

On Tuesday, April 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 April 17, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Bostitch tool and tool bag Kit.  
Official Rules.
