Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Chain Saw Sharpener

Last Toolsday we asked you to identify a long, skinny tool with a small scope on the end of it.  Most people knew that it was an optical device used to determine the strength of eye-glass lens.

We randomly picked one winner out of all last week’s comments and that lucky person is Bayou hag from McDonough, GA who thought it was a surveyor’s tool.

Next Tuesday, we will have two winners, each one will win a PowerSharp chain saw sharpening kit.  It can transform a dull blade into like-new sharp in just a few seconds. The kit is easy and fast to use. Simply attach it to the blade, press the sharpener against a solid object for a few seconds, remove the sharpener and you’re ready to start cutting.

To win a PowerSharp kit, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what the tool pictured below is used for. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick two winners.

Are you thinking about replacing your walls, floors or countertops?  Learn what new options are available to cover the solid surfaces in your home. Plus, get step-by-step instructions for installing granite, hanging wallpaper, pouring concrete countertops, laying a tile floor and more.

On Tuesday, June 19, we will select the winners then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until June 19, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the PowerSharp kit.
Official Rules.
