Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Garden Weasel and Claw

To enter last week’s Toolsday giveaway, you had to identify a cone-looking thing with a strap on it.  We randomly picked three winners out of all the comments and only one of those was correct. That person is Doko5doko5, who knew it was an antique surgical loop used to help surgeons see better. Our other two winners are Richard G, who thought it was a miner’s light, and Alea who guessed miner’s goggles. Congrats, you all have one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday, we’ll be giving away a Garden Weasel and a Garden Claw Super.  The original Garden Weasel has been around for over 30 years and has practically become the generic term for all handheld garden cultivators. That’s probably because of its durability and easy-to-use design.  The Garden Claw works hand-in-hand with the Weasel to loosen packed soil and turn weeds out at their roots.  

Are your floors and carpet looking worn? Instead of replacing them, try repainting them. We’ve got instructions on how to paint low-pile carpets, hardwood floors and even a staircase. Also, find out how to revive furniture with paint and how to paint patterns on your walls

To win the Weasel and the Claw, post a comment (click “comment” above) and identify the ginormous piece of machinery pictured below. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, August 21, 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 August 21, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win a Garden Weasel and a Garden Claw.  

Official Rules.

    Looks like something you'd see at a dairy factory, to filter the milk or something. Have no idea what it'd be called, though…
