Toolsday Giveaway: Win an Angle Grinder

Last Toolsday, we posted a photo of a metal gadget with a wooden handle and asked you to tell us what it is used for.  Popular answers included bottle opener, a speciality wrench and a tool used to remove nails from a horse’s shoe. The real answer is a dental key. It’s a tool that was used in the early 1800s to extract teeth – ouch! 

We randomly picked one winner out of all last week’s comments and that lucky person is Doug, who thought it was a pair of tongs for carrying cylindrical objects. Congrats Doug, even though you answered incorrectly, you still win. You have exactly one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday we will be giving away a Craftsman Angle Grinder.  The cordless 4-1/2″ grinder is designed for comfort and ease of use.  It comes with an auxiliary handle that can be adjusted to three different positions. The powerful 19.2-volt motor allows for 6500 RPM no-load speed so you can get the job done fast. 

Is your home short on square footage? We have design ideas to make your kitchen look bigger, tips for organizing your home office and great storage solutions for combating clutter all around your home. Plus, get inspiration and ideas from people who live in small unique homes like cargo containers and tree houses.

To win the Craftsman Angle Grinder, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this little device is called.  You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, January 22, 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 22, 2013, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Craftsman Angle Grinder.

Official Rules.
