To be eligible to win last week’s Toolsday giveaway, you had to identify a set of wooden maraca-looking things and tell us what they are use for. Only a handful of people knew the correct answer – they are sock darning eggs. You slip them into socks to make it easier to sew up the holes.
We randomly picked one winner out of all last week’s comments and that lucky person is Ronald Shook, who thought they were used to shape copper. Even though you’re wrong, you still win. Congrats Floree, you have one week to response to our email before we pick another winner.
Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a Bosch 12-volt pocket driver. This powerful tool provides a variety of speed options and clutch settings to allow for a precision drilling and driving into wood and light metal. The compact, lightweight body (less than two pounds) is great for working in tight areas or overhead. And to make it even more convenient, the driver is equipped with a bright LED light.
To enter Bosch pocket driver giveaway, we’ve got another set of egg-shaped tools that you need to identify. Post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what tradesperson/artist uses these tools (below) and for what? (hint: the eggs are made from graphite). You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.
Is it too hot to go outside? Why not stay in and get something done – how about a little delayed spring cleaning. We’ve got tips on how to efficiently speed clean, also how to make inexpensive, chemical-free cleansers, and ways to get your laundry cleaner.
On Tuesday, July 10, 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 July 10, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Bosch pocket driver.
