Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Compound Miter Saw

Last Toolsday, we posted a photo of an usual pair of pliers and asked you to tell us what they’re used for.  You’re a very smart audience; either that or you all work on a farm, because many of you correctly guessed that the pliers are used to lead a bull by its nose ring.

We randomly picked two winners out of all last week’s comments and those lucky people are Paul Faletti and Kathryn C.  Congrats, you both have exactly one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

 Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a Craftsman 10″ compound miter saw. This 15- amp powerhouse can cut 2x12s and 4x4s in one quick swipe. This saw features Laser Trac which projects an accurate laser line so you can pre-align all your cuts and get it perfect every time.  A dust bag, aluminum stop block and hold-down clamp are also included.

How’s your vegetable garden coming along?  Are you having problems, or have you been procrastinating and still haven’t planted everything?  We got tips and tricks on how to grow yummy edibles including tomatoes, cukes, carrots, potatoes, and berries. Plus, you’ll find tips for maintaining raised bed, container gardens and recipes for preparing your harvest.       

To win the Craftsman miter saw, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what you could make with the little device pictured below.  You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, June 26, 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 June 26, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the miter saw.  

Official Rules.
