Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Bostitch Wrecking Bar

In order to be eligible to win last Toolsday’s (a.k.a. Tuesday) prize, we asked you to guess the identity of a little cylinder-type gadget on a stick.  Many of you knew that it was used to measure and pour something — like gold, lead, mercury, even wax. All incorrect; the mystery tool was used to pour gun powder.  

We randomly picked one winner from all the comments and that lucky person is Felicia who also thought it was used to pour liquid metal.  Congrats Felicia, you have one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.  

Next Tuesday, one lucky person could win a Bostitch 24″ Wrecking Bar. This heavy-duty spring steel bar is extremely durable, but its low weight makes it easy to use. One end of the bar has prying edge while the other has a flat striking face.  The combination of both makes this tool ideal for demolition work like ripping up roof shingles, pulling out old flooring or smashing up concrete (and anything else you want to take your aggressions out on).

Having a hard time getting your family to help clean up around the house? (me too) We’ve got tips and tricks for getting your family motivated (and it doesn’t involve cash), plus find pro tips on how to clean faster and more efficient. If you’re looking to save money and live healthier, we’ve got homemade cleaning solutions that cost next to nothing to make and are all natural.

To enter the Bostitch Wrecking Bar giveaway, post a comment (click “comment” above) and identify the two things pictured on right. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, October 9, we will select the winner of the Bostitch Wrecking Bar then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until October 9, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the giveaway. 

Official Rules.

    not rug beaters, base too small, net too wide. I think antique tribal stick-ball sticks is best option!!!

  10. shar shee says:

    can’t be rug beaters, the base is too small and the net too wide. It must be stick-ball sticks
