Tuesday Toolsday: Win a Black & Decker Paint Edger

We fooled a lot of people last week. Hardly anyone correctly guessed that the Toolsday mystery gadget was an antique ticker tape machine. Most people thought it was part of a clock, some thought it was a film projector and others guessed that it was a fire hose reel.  

We randomly picked the winner from all the comments, and that lucky person is Ian, who was pretty close, he thought it was a ribbon dispenser.  Congrats Ian, you have one week to contact us before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a Black & Decker EasyEdge Powered Paint Edger. This handy tool is a painter’s best friend. It allows you to paint around trim, doorways and get into tight spots. No need to spend all that time applying tape around windows and doors, just load the EasyEdge with paint and go. You can paint up to 25 feet on one single cartridge. The EasyEdge lays down a smooth and consistent line every time.

Do you love pampering your pets? Baking treats for them? Buying the furry little ones new toys and chews?  So do we, that’s why we compiled some of the best dog and cat treat recipes, lists of the best pet toys, cat condos and doghouse designs. Also, we’ve got ideas and instructions on how to turn old furniture into dog beds.  

To enter the Black & Decker EasyEdge giveaway, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what the simple gadget pictured below is used for? You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner from this post.

On Tuesday, September 18, 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 September 18, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Black & Decker EasyEdge.  

Official Rules.
