Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Rechargeable Screwdriver

We fooled a lot of people last week.  Hardly anyone correctly guessed that the Toolsday mystery tool was an archaeologist’s brush used to sweep soil off artifacts and bones. The brush’s bristles are made from a tropical plant called the escobillo — it stands up well to moisture, so it is perfect for playing in the dirt. 

We had a variety of creative answers including mustache broom, lint brush, a chimney sweep and a tea whisk.  But, we were able to pick only one winner, and that lucky person is Bluenite, who thought it was a whisk broom. Congrats Bluenite, you have one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a Black & Decker Gyro Rechargeable Screwdriver. If you’re doing some early Christmas shopping, this is perfect gift for any homeowner or apartment dweller.  It is compact, lightweight and its powerful lithium battery holds a charge for up to 18 months.  It can be used on everything from big home-improvement projects, to hanging artwork to assembling toys and crafts.

Halloween is right around the corner.  Have you carved your pumpkin yet?  If not, we’ve got templates you can print out, tape to your pumpkin and start carving.  A rotary tool and some old steak knives work great. Also, do you need last minute decorations for your Halloween party.  We’ve got instructions for projects that will take little time and money to make, and they’re easy enough the kids can help too.    

To enter the Black & Decker Gyro Rechargeable Screwdriver giveaway, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what the items pictured below are  and what profession uses them? You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner from this post.

On Tuesday, October 30, 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 30, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Black & Decker Gyro Rechargeable Screwdriver.  

Official Rules.
