Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Craftsman Biscuit Jointer

To enter last week’s Toolsday’s giveaway, you had to identify a gadget that has a circle in a circle held together with some springs. Smart crowd you are — most everyone knew it was an old microphone.  The 1920s art-deco equipment was very high-tech for the time.  The springs were used to eliminate vibration and ambient noises.

We randomly picked one winner out of all the comments and that lucky person is Larry M. who correctly guessed the identity of the mystery gadget. Congratulations Larry M., you have one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a Craftsman Corded Plate Jointer. This powerful tool makes a great gift for the biscuit-cutting woodworker on your Christmas list. Its 6-amp motor is powerful and fast enough to make clean cuts every time. The adjustable fence makes cuts at varied depths. 

Are you still decorating for Christmas?  We’ve got some easy crafting ideas for centerpieces and mantel decorations – everything from little glitter Christmas trees, to snow-white burlap trees, to a midcentury-modern hanging centerpiece. Looking for something to hang on your door – check out our wreath projects: a wreath made from balls of yarn, or how about one made from tassels and string, or if you like 70s retro, we’ve got a wreath made from white shag and purple ribbon.

To win the Craftsman Corded Plate Jointer, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this old wooden thing is made to do? You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, December 18, 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 December 18, 2012pm (ET) to enter to win the Craftsman Biscuit Jointer.
