Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Hammer Drill

We thought last Toolsday’s mystery gadget would be pretty easy to guess, but surprisingly, not a lot of people got it.  Most folks thought the canister and two wire spools were for mixing cocktails (they probably still had New Year’s Eve on their minds). But they’re actually used for developing film. The film in wrapped around the spools (in complete darkness) then placed in the canister and the developing solution is added.     

We randomly picked one winner out of all last week’s comments and that lucky person is Michelle L who thought they were burners.  Congrats Michelle, even though your answer is wrong, you still win. You’ve got exactly one week to reply to our email message before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a cordless Craftsman Hammer Drill. This 19.2-volt drill and driver can handle a multitude of projects and home improvement jobs. The powerful motor generated up to 420 pounds of torque.  It can hammer into masonry, wood and almost anything else you throw in its way.

Do you love turning old junk into something new?  Take a look at some easy projects you can make from garage-sale treasures and old stuff lying around your basement.  Learn how to turn an old wood crates into wall mirrors, or how to turn old cabinets into a bench, and how to make stools out of logs and old chair parts.   

To win the Craftsman Hammer Drill, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this tool (right) is used for. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, January 15, 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 15, 2013, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Craftsman Hammer Drill.  
Official Rules.
