Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Craftsman Hammer Drill

Last Toolsday, we posted a photo of a strange-looking pair of tongs with little feet on the bottom and asked you to identify it.   We had a variety of answers, everything from shoe stretcher to a door stop. But the correct answer is a pike gag, which is used to hold a fish’s mouth open so a fisherman (or fisherwoman) can remove the hook without being bitten. 

We randomly picked one winner out of all last week’s comments and that lucky person is Wallace, who thought it was a gripper or some type of clamp. Congrats Wallace, you won even though you were wrong; you have exactly one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Is your home short on square footage?  We have design ideas to make your kitchen look bigger, tips for organizing your home office and great storage solutions for combating clutter all around the home.  Plus, take a look at some cool tiny houses and unique homes like cargo containers and tree houses.

Next Tuesday we be giving away a Craftsman 1/2″ Hammer Drill.  This powerhouse tool is convenient and compact and works at variable speeds to in order to drill through a variety of materials.  The keyless chuck and spindle lock make bit changes fast and easy.

To win the Craftsman Hammer Drill, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what tradesperson uses this device and for what.  You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, September 25, 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 25, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Craftsman Hammer Drill.
