Many things about Jackson’s Total Control Elite 8-lb. demolition hammer stand out. First and foremost is its unique dual function head. One side looks like any normal sledgehammer, but instead of the traditional round head, the other side is a wedge shape that supposedly deliverers 5X the impact force.

When Stanley looked to update their 24″ and 36″ demo bars this year — and let’s face it: we haven’t seen a whole hell of a lot of “updates” in the demo bar field lately — they looked to material. Specifically, they calculated that by selecting the correct steel and dialing in the heat treatment perfectly (just like spring manufacturers do to make heavy-duty springs like the ones that hold up your car), they could create a bar that’s just as strong as before, but also 30% lighter.

I recently saw a Hardware Aisle post about The Pulverizer™ from Ames True Temper/Jackson Tools. It’s a new fully-forged, heat-treated, multi-purpose concrete and demolition tool. The 12.8″ long Pulverizer™ weighs 3.5 pounds, has a heavy-duty 1-1/2″ faced sledge head, claw teeth, a 2″ scraper with nail puller, a triangular-shaped area below the head for ripping through drywall, and a shock-dampening, textured, TPE grip.

This is a picture of a tired man. We like this series for several reasons; reader Jason and friend are doing a demo on a house — sweet. And while it’s back breaking work and uber-cool to do, there’s normally a point when you have to start building it back up again. That’s the really fun part.

If you’ve never used a jackhammer, it’s a lot harder on the body than one might expect. Arms and backs wear out pretty fast. Chuck can manage it longer than I can just because of the mass difference, but it’s still not anybody’s favorite. Unless, of course, the other option is a sledge.

The Cole-Bar Hammer is a new multi-purpose tool with a ratchet that locks at any angle between 0° and 180°. This means the hammer can be opened into a full crow bar, used as a square, or used as an angle tool. In addition, the ratchet section is removable for use as a socket wrench, or cat’s paw. Apparently not yet in production — at least I could not find anything on the web — the saw’s designer named it in honor of his son who passed away in an accident not long after they had invented it. A video of the tool in use is available on the web site. This tool is one of those in the Cool Tools Inventor’s Challenge to be aired Thanksgiving weekend — could be a good thing to watch, although I tend to avoid Cool Tools because the host, Chris Grundy, is just a little too intense for me.

Would you want one of these multifunction hammers? How much would you be willing to pay? Let us know in comments.

We can see why Mayhew Tools thought it would be cool to name this tool the Cats Paw Deck Wrecker. The Cats Paw part is obvious, especially since they own the trademark, but the “Deck Wrecker” part of the name doesn’t really describe the tool. It’s designed to lift deck boards with little damage and without damaging the joists underneath, allowing you to resurface the deck with as little repair to the structure as possible.

Mayhew manufactures the 44″ long Cats Paw Deck Wrecker from steel and powder coats it for corrosion resistance. The tool’s double Cats Paw head straddles the joist, while the curved rocker sits on top of the joist. Pulling back on the handle pries the deck board off the joist. Once the board is out of the way you can use one of the Cats Paw heads to pry up remaining nails and screws.

You can purchase the Cats Paw Deck Wrecker from Amazon for $100 shipped. Other online retailers also sell it for $100, but you’ll take your chances with their shipping charges.

Removing putty from windows is almost never a fun task — you run the risk of breaking the window if you push the wrong way, and you can scorch the wood if you try applying heat.  I usually end up just using a putty knife and hoping for the best, but this Prazi Putty Chaser looks like it could take a lot of the work out of the job.

A little while back Bosch announced the rollout of their new “Edge” metal recip demo blades.  Bosch’s marketing department created a lot of fanfare around the release and did a good job trying to make ‘em exciting, which is difficult — because it’s a recip blade, not the sexy front runner in a hard-hitting leaflet campaign.  Here’s what it boils down to:  Bosch says that, thanks to its new tooth design and many other features, the Edge cuts faster and lasts longer.

Although it looks very much like their brick set, this floor chisel from Stanley has an entirely different purpose. You use a floor chisel, sometimes called an electrician’s bolster, to remove flooring.  The long narrow blade is designed to get between floorboards, cut through tongues, and pry up the loosened boards.

Milwaukee put out one of the coolest tools we’ve seen in 2008, the M12 Hackzall — even in the list of our favorites, this is the spoiled youngest child of the bunch. Ever since the fateful day we had to cut apart my power steering pump with one, it has claimed a place of honor in the shop.
