Think of your aching muscles after pulling wire all day long. Rather than put up with that pain again, you could buy a tool made for the job: Hook the Power Pull-it up to your drill and let it do the pulling for you.

Madison Electric Products has a short video displaying the use of their product. Basically, once you’re done setting up the pull line, attach it to the Power Pull-it spindle and pull the drill trigger. The drill supports one end of the tool while you hold the other end in your free hand. The handle rides on precision bearings so the pull line will wind as smoothly as your drill allows.

When you think of insulated tools, a torque wrench isn’t the first tool that comes to mind. Yet there must be a need for them, because several companies sell insulated torque wrenches. Knipex has sold their model 98 43 for a while, but is obsoleting it in favor of two new models.

Besides now making both a 1/2″ drive and a 3/8″ drive, the only real differences seem to be a slightly tweaked handle design, a 10 oz. weight increase to 43 oz., and a torque range change from 8-54 Nm to 5-50 Nm. All the models are reversible to tighten both right-handed and left-handed threads.

It’s bad enough that you have to drag the extension cord around to use non-battery powered electric yard tools, but you still have to figure out where you’re going to store that extra cord when you’re done.

Lee Valleys’ cord storage hooks let you turn the wasted space on your yard tool’s handle or shaft into a good place to keep that extra cord. Reinforced rubber belts hold the plastic hooks on any handle or shaft up to 1-1/2″ in diameter. Both hooks swivel when you want to remove the cord and are easy to reposition. The pair of hooks also comes with a cord-retaining clip to keep the loose end of the cord.

Many times when you blow a breaker, lose power, or even if the cord just becomes unplugged, you forget to turn off the tool. This can lead to the dangerous situation where the tool restarts unattended after you restore power. This may not always be a problem, but what if you left stock in contact with a blade or you left the belt sander face down on the table?

Woodcraft amusingly describes this scenario in their writeup of the SafetyGate:

Most belt-sander races aren’t sanctioned events. Accidentally pull the trigger, set the tool on your bench, and when as you plug the cord into the outlet, you’ve got yourself a track-side seat.

Sanctioned belt sander races are fun, but when an accidental trigger pull turns your workbench into the drag strip, the event ends with a damaged workpiece or trashed tool. Considering the potential of other tools, it’s easy to imagine how an unexpected start–when you’re plugging it into an outlet, or resetting a blown fuse–can be much worse than an amusing anecodote [sic].

Plug the SafetyGate into the outlet and your tool into the SafetyGate. If you leave the tool on when the power goes out, its patented sensor technology recognizes this and prevents current from flowing to the tool when power is restored. When this condition happens a yellow LED on the device turns on and you need to switch the tool off then back on again to make it work.

Today, in this third, and last, installment of uncommon nut drivers, we have the insulated and angled nut driver from Cementex.  It’s not articulated — it’s a fixed right angle, so it’s not bent to get into odd spaces. My best guess is that the shaft is bent to apply more torque.

These Knipex insulated T-handle nut drivers might not be the most practical nut driver for everybody, but they meet IEC60900 and DIN EN 60900 standards and are rated for 1000V, so if you need them, you need them.

Knipex manufacturers the drivers from special tool steel and oil-hardens them. Available in 8mm, 10mm, 13mm, 17mm, 19mm, and 22mm sizes, most of the drivers are 155mm (6″) long. We can’t find any pricing on them yet, but with their electrical ratings, expect them to be expensive.

Rather than carrying around a bunch of nut drivers, carry only one with Klein’s Drive-A-Matic. As you place the driver over the fastener and turn the head, it automatically adjusts to the head of the fastener.

The Drive-A-Matic can fit 15 different nut and hex head screw sizes from 1/4″ to 7/16″. Klein chrome plates the 7″ hollow shaft driver for a smooth finished look, and uses the same black and yellow cushion grip that you’ve come to know and love.

You can find the Drive-A-Matic fro $25 to $43 depending on where you shop.

Having a pair of Rack-A-Tiers wire racks on site not only allows you to hold a variety of different-sized spools while pulling wire; they can also serve as a saw horse or workbench, or even give you a place to sit while you’re taking a nap, as illustrated by some creative mind over at Rack-A-Tiers’ website.

Long ago in my youth, I was working for an electrician and he asked me to drive a ground rod for him.  After sinking the rod, I tried to put the ground clamp over the head but found the mushroomed head too wide. The electrician laughed and said that next time I’d remember to put the clamp on before I drove the rod. Using a tool like the Sluggo-Ox might have saved me that embarrassment.

Not only does the Sluggo-Ox prevent the ground rod head from mushrooming while you drive it, it provides a much larger target for you to whack with a mallet. It works with 5/8″ or 3/4″ ground rods, or similarly sized rebar and other rods. To prevent corrosion and protect your investment, the Sluggo-Ox is coated with a yellow zinc chromate.

Whether it’s electrical cords, air lines, or hoses, sometimes you need to run them in the path of people, cars, or other equipment. Not only can this be a tripping hazard, but it can damage the said cords, lines, and hoses. Yellow Jacket makes cable protectors so tough you can run them over as long you keep your load under 10,500 lbs. per axle.
