8” Bionic Wrench

8” Bionic Wrench

02-20-2011 03:39 PM by christopheralan | 3 comments »

This is the 8” Bionic Wrench by Logger Head Tools. It is one of the coolest tools I own. Thanks to innovative design and engineering, it automatically adjusts to any size hex-head fastener from 7/16 inch to ¾ inch and from 11mm to 20mm. This had Super Hero Belt status immediately. Being a carpenter and woodworker, I don’t normally turn wrenches, except to change blades and occasionally to secure lag bolts and screws. It is ideal for me in those situations where I normally have enough cle...

Dead On Tools Exhumer 9 Nail Puller

Dead On Tools Exhumer 9 Nail Puller

02-15-2011 12:57 AM by christopheralan | 6 comments »

This isn’t your average cat’s-paw style nail puller. This is the Exhumer 9 by Dead-On Tools. It actually measures 10 5/8”, but with a name like Exhumer, who cares. This is another multi-use tool with a circular saw blade nut wrench, small hammer face, two claws, and a bottle opener. Yes, a bottle opener. It works. I tried it about 12 times the first weekend I owned it…I lost count after that… Anyway, I have used the heck out of this, and it has always performed well. I have pu...

Ryobi TEK4 All-Play Jobsite MP3 Music Player

Ryobi TEK4 All-Play Jobsite MP3 Music Player

02-12-2011 02:08 AM by christopheralan | 0 comments »

This is the TEK4 All-Play Jobsite MP3 Music Player by Ryobi Tools. It is water, dust and impact resistant, and plays all types of music files. It will hold 2 giggaflops of music, which translates to around 500 songs, depending on the file size. This player will rattle your eardrums for approximately 72 continuous hours thanks to the 4-volt lithium-ion battery. Just clip it to your superhero belt or attach it to the armband and carry it around the jobsite or workshop. Before using the All-P...

Stanley 55-099 Fat Max Xtreme Fubar

Stanley 55-099 Fat Max Xtreme Fubar

02-10-2011 12:18 AM by christopheralan | 2 comments »

This is the monster Stanley 55-099 Fat Max Xtreme Fubar. Being a recent addition to my hammer arsenal, I am still putting it through its paces. It is the big brother to the Stanley 55-119 Fubar, which I have had for a few years. It is bigger, meaner, and much heavier at 4.5 pounds. It adds the claw type nail puller, similar to a regular hammer, which allows more versatility for pulling fasteners. The grip is identical to the 55-119, which I love: Great contour, no slip, and a great feel...

Wanna break something...?

Wanna break something...?

02-08-2011 02:56 AM by christopheralan | 2 comments »

This scary looking thing is the Dead On 18-Inch Annihilator Utility and Wrecking Bar. It is used for demolition and general purposes. It is kind of a Swiss Army Knife of hammers with many uses: Hammer, Nail Puller, Board Straightener Drywall Demolition Axe, Wrench, Tile Puller/Ripper, Wire Stripper, and Bottle Opener. It weighs in at almost 4 pounds. Besides intimidating innocent 2×4’s and drywall, this hammer is great. I have used it for day-to-day woodwork and for building heavy-...
