Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Stapler/Brad Nailer

Last week’s mystery tool had most everyone fooled.  We showed you a picture of a little brush and asked who it belonged to and what were they brushing off. Hardly anyone knew that it was an umpire’s mini broom used to clean home plate.  We randomly picked one winner from all the comments, and that lucky person is doublefox who thought it was a clothing brush.  Congratulations doublefox, you have one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a Craftsman stapler/brad nailer. This rapid-fire nail gun is perfect for any DIYer and/ or home crafter. You can use it single handed to shoot brads nails or a variety of different-sized staples.

Are you looking to tackle some new DIY decor projects? We’ll get you started — check out these 15 easy-to-make headboard projects, or how about budget ideas for backsplashes, or new ways to turn old stuff into new furniture.

To enter the Craftsman stapler/brad nail gun giveaway, post a comment (click “comment” above) and identify the strange-looking contraption pictured below. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner from this post.

On Tuesday, May 1, 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 1, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the nail gun/stapler.  

Official Rules.

    I think it is a milk stool. It looks like the one I used on the farm when I was a boy.
