Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Framing Nailer

Happy New Year!  The Toolsday before last, we posted a photo of an old timey contraption and asked you to identify it.  Most everyone knew it was a pencil sharpener (about 200 times bigger than today’s average pencil sharpener).  We randomly picked one winner from all the comments and that lucky person is Betty H. who had the correct answer.  Congrats Betty, you’ve got one week to reply to our email message before we pick another winner.  

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a Craftsman Framing Nailer. This powerhouse pneumatic tool drives 2″ to 3-1/2″ nails into any type of wood. It shoots single fire or quick bounce mode to get the job done quickly. The rubber-molded handle makes it easy to use.

January is the perfect time to clean out the cupboards and reorganize your kitchen. Check out some new storage ideas and cabinet inserts, plus open shelving ideas.  If it’s a new look you’re going for, we’ve got ideas for adding color to the kitchen, painting countertops, cabinets and appliances.   

To win the framing nailer, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what the things pictured below are. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, January 8, 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 January 8, 2013, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Craftsman Framing Nailer.

Official Rules.

    Hello to all and Happy New Year! I happen to have several of the featured guess what this is item… it is used in photography to develop film, it is called a Daylight tank. Meaning once you load the 35mm flim onto the reel in the dark and place the lid on it you can now process the film in daylight. My friends used to call me the "mole" back in college when I spent most of my time in the darkroom. I still have all the equipment if I ever wish to set it back up again. Now like everyone else I post process on my computer. I miss the smell of fixer it would stay on you for days. lol Oh and of course a framing nailer who couldn't use one of those!!!!

    It looks to be, as one comment said, a pot for delivering meals hot and in layers to keep them apart. It isn't quite the same but who says it has to be?
