Tuesday Toolsday: Win a BenchtopPRO Cleaner

To enter last week’s Toolsday giveaway, you had to identify a pair of long skinny half circles.  Not too many people guessed what they were. Most guesses were curtain rods or drawer slides, a few of you also guessed tracks for moving a refrigerator. But they were all wrong. The mystery tool was a pair of upholstery channel tins.  They are forms used to make old-fashion channel-back chairs (the backs are fluted). The tins hold the shape of the half circle while the upholster stuffs the chair.

We randomly picked one winner out of all the comments and that lucky person is Chris.  Congrats Chris, you have one week to reply to our email before another winner is chosen.  

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a BenchtopPRO parts cleaner. This is a great tool for all homeowners, DIYers and mechanics.  The BenchtopPRO is a parts-washing system that can clean years of gunk and grime off most anything from lawnmower blades to bicycle parts, and it works great on flea market treasures that you’re planning on repurposing. To get everything so clean, the BenchtopPRO combines the process of bioremediation with a revolutionary non-flammable degreasing solution engineered to work at room temperature.

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 BenchtopPRO, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what these two pieces belong to. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, February 19, 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 February 19, 2013 at 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the BenchTop Pro.

    There is no scale, so it is impossible to tell how large [or small] these are – they could be the size of a thimble, or they could be size of my computer. I would guess they are lSelector buttons from a vintage Western Electric multiline phone.
