Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Framing Nailer

Hardly anyone correctly guessed the identity of last week’s Toolsday mystery gadget — it was a bracelet form used by a jewelry maker.  A lot of people thought it was part of a car brake, and quite a few thought it had something to do with plumbing, and many others guessed that it was a piece of a router.  

We randomly picked the winner from all the comments, and that lucky person is Jane, who thought it was a seal for a toilet.  Not even close, Jane, but you still win. You have one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a Grip-Rite Framing Nailer.  This powerhouse tool can handle the toughest framing applications, but its lightweight housing and ergonomic design make it easy to use for hours at a time.  The Grip-Rite shoots 2-inch to 3-1/2-inch paper tape collated, clipped head nails.  It has an aggressive toe nailing claw for easy toe nailing and it comes equipped with a rotating rafter hook. 

October 31 is not that far off, it’s time to start decorating and planning your Halloween bash.  We’ve got cute decorating projects that cost no more than $5 and they’re easy-peasy to put together.  If you’re throwing a kid’s party we’ve got fun ways to decorate and yummy treats for the little ones. For the adults, find cocktail recipes and ideas for creating a spooky beverage bar.

To enter the Grip-Rite Framing Nailer giveaway, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what these strange-looking things (pictured below) are used for? You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner from this post.

On Tuesday, October 2, 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 October 2, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Grip-Rite Framing Nailer.
