Toolsday Giveaway: Win Two Palm Nailers

To enter last week’s Toolsday giveaway, you had to identify a pair of oval gadgets attached to two pleated pads.  Most folks knew they were a set of old knee and shin guards, but not everyone said they were specifically made for a baseball catcher. Not that you’d ever see Buster Posey wearing them, he’s got a more up-to-date set of shin protection.

We randomly picked one winner out of all the comments and that lucky person is GErickson who knew they were what a catcher would wear back in the old days. Congrats GErickson, you have one week to reply to our email before another winner is chosen.   

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away two Grip Rite Palm Nailers – one mini and one full size. The mini is one-third the size and weight of a full size palm nailer so it can fit into tight spaces. It drives up to a 3-1/2-inch 16d nail without creating hammer marks. It is perfect for framing, hurricane straps, fencing, decking, and tough jobs. The full-sized Grip-Rite Palm Nailer is designed to handle the toughest applications This tool will drive 2-inch to 6-inch nails. It’s perfect for joist hangers, ties, connector straps, anchors, framing and any other exterior or interior applications.

Did you know you could paint upholstered chairs, curtains, floors and even carpeting?   While you can, we’ve got instructions on how to paint low-pile carpets. Also, find out how to revive furniture with paint, or a staircase, ceiling and more

To win the set of Grip Rite nailers, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what famous person this mask depicts (and not from the movie). You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, November 6, 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 November 6, 2012 at 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Grip Rite nailers.  
Official Rules.

    The mask looks like it's from the Phantom of the Opera. The nailers are fabulous. Would love to win them.

    The mask reminds me of voices of Bert and Harry Piel, two animated characters from a very successful ad campaign for Piels Beer.

    My 1st guess was Cesar Romero. But after seeing everyone's Guy Fawkes responses, I looked it up. Sure enough they were right. So my guess is Guy Fawkes.
