Toolsday Giveaway: Win a PermaFlow No Clog Drain

To enter last week’s Toolsday giveaway, you had to identify a circular plate with a bunch of holes around the perimeter. It was easier than we thought; most people correctly identified it as the rotary dial on an old telephone. (Gosh, remember how long it use to take to dial a long-distance phone number?).  We randomly picked three winners out of all the comments – Marydz, Bill Fillner and Elizabeth T.  Congrats, you all have one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away two PermaFlow No Clog Drains. The easy-turn wheel on the drain’s P-trap eliminates the need for harsh chemical drain cleaners, plumbers or plungers. When the P-trap is clogged, or you’ve accidently dropped something down the drain – like a ring – just turn the wheel.  With the see-through design, you can tell exactly what causing the blockage and how to get it out. The No-Clog drain is easy to install and it’s made in the USA.

To win the PermaFlow No Clog Drain, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this little press (below) is designed to make. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick two winners.

Do you love upcycling style – taking old stuff and reinventing it into new stuff?  We’re all about it here at Take at look at some of these easy projects you can make from garage-sale treasures and old stuff lying around your basement.  Learn how to turn an old suitcase into an end table, or how to turn old cabinets into a bench, make a new coffee table using an old door and more clever ideas.     

On Tuesday, May 29, 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 29, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win a PermaFlow No Clog Drain.

    I think it's a fancy button maker, you know those lovely decorated buttons on all the old clothing. When fashion was more than a piece of cloth pulled over a persons head and elegance was a part of life.

    It is an Arbor Press, but I can’t identify the dies that are in it for sure. It looks most like a Campaign style button maker. The ones with the clear plastic cover and the single pin on the back.So, that’s my guess, a Button Maker.
