Tuesday Toolsday Giveaway: Win Pennington Seed

Last Toolsday (a.k.a. Tuesday) we asked you to identify a wheel with various-sized holes cut into it. We had some very interesting answers including a doughnut-hole maker, brass knuckles, and a spaghetti-portion measuring device. However, none of these are correct, the mystery tool was a dowel cutter.   

We randomly picked 12 winners out of all last week’s comments and they are Julie, Jim, Eliza, Rita Moran, Bzpz, Joan, Dona a, Raymond Huffaker, Pegbro, Sharon, Josephine and Haslem. Congratulations folks, you’ve got one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner to replace you.    

Next Tuesday, five (5) lucky winners will receive a container of Pennington Seed’s Patch and Repair.  This pre-mixed product is a combination of mulch, seed and fertilizer. It is super easy to use.  Lay it down over bald and trouble spots on your lawn then just water.  The mulch helps keep the seed in place so it will not wash away during germination.

To win one of the Pennington Seed kits, look at this red template/label, tell us what is normally printed on this template and where you will likely find it.  Click “comment” above to post your guess. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick five winners.

Moms have a tendency to like Mother’s Day gifts that are handmade with love.  Why not get out your tools and paintbrush and make her something special.  How about something for her backyard:  an unusual container garden wouldn’t take a lot of time, effort or money.  Making a chalkboard/message board out of an old frame is another easy, budget project. Or maybe she’d like a wine rack – we’ll give you the instructions on how to make it, you supply the tools, a little effort and the wine.

On Tuesday, May 15, we will select the winners then start up a new giveaway for another cool tool or product, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until May 15, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Pennington Seed.  
Official Rules.

    I would make a GIANT bow, tie it on the NEW Compound Miter Saw & give it to my husband who's been working really, really hard on our "new to us" house! He pulled the string on his gas saw to cut rebarb while framing up to pour our driveway & the string came all the way out! He went to the "big box store" & bought replacement string/pull & thought he fixed the saw. Instead, he pulled the string & the string & a spring flew out, too! It's still broken & he really, really needs a new saw for sure! Maybe one that's not a gas-burning saw!' (I didn’t even know he owned a saw that operated like a chainsaw until he broke it. He said it’s at least 20 yrs old, too.
