Forget cutting your sticks one piece at a time; with a little bit of help from an A-daptor kit*, you can turn your Skil or Bosch 7-1/4″ worm drive saw into a 10-1/4″ saw that can take a big 3-3/4″ bite out of your stock — enough to gang cut a mess of 2x4s.

Big Foot Tools sells kits that fit Skil Type 14,15,16, and 17 saws, the Bosch 1677M, and the Mag Type  1. Their adapter kit ships complete with a 10-1/4″, 36-tooth carbide blade. Using the supplied instructions it supposedly only takes 15-30 minutes to convert your saw.

You’ll pay about $300 for the kit.

*(Thanks to the Man in Black for this great song)

Big Foot Tool’s Stand-Up Bolt Hole Marker allows you to mark the location of bolts on plates quickly.  Once you’ve dialed the correct bolt size and lined up the plate next to the bolts, you simply push the tool against the bolt and hit the spring-loaded plunger with a hammer to mark each bolt.

The bolt marker has a bolt size dial for 1/2″, 5/8″, 3/4″, 7/8″, 1″, and 1- 1/4″ bolts on each end; one end is used for 2×4 plates and the other for 2×6 plates. It retails for $33 at DHC Supplies, plus an extra $10 for shipping.

If you need to recess a large bolt when building a deck or other outdoor project, it’s usually a two-step process. This is okay if you only have to hide a few bolts, but if you have to recess a ton of bolts it’d be easier to slide Makita’s counter bore over one of their industrial ship auger bits and do it in one step.

Slip the counter bore over an auger bit with a 5/8″ diameter shaft, tighten the set screw, and you’re set to hog out a 2-1/2″ hole for recessing the bolt in addition to the through-hole. You can pay anywhere between $45 and $80 for Makita’s slip-on counter bore.

The traditional framing square serves its purpose well, but a few things could be improved.  You can’t fit your square into your toolbox — unless we’re talking a large job box or a truck box, it ain’t happening.  How about laying out repeatable angles?  Yeah, it can be done, but it takes a bit of practice. Swanson designed their $30 Framing Wizard layout tool not only to address these issues but also to replace five tools:

  • Framing square
  • Try square
  • Miter gauge
  • Angle Finder
  • Saw Guide

A shim is a shim, right?  You can’t really improve on a tapered piece of wood — or can you?  Peel-A-Shim claims their Speed-Shim will help you get the job done faster without the shims moving, spinning, or splitting.   Instead of trying to line up a bunch of wedge-shaped shims, you just peel off the correct number of shims to fill the gap.

You don’t always have enough room in your tool belt to hold a bunch of framing nail coils, and even if you do, the unsupported pouch can bend up the coils making it harder to load ‘em into your nailer.  To solve this problem, Prazi came up with the Framing Coil Caddy to hold up to seven coils on your belt at once.

Pounding things into submission with a sledgehammer can really work out your frustration, but that’s the only time it’s fun — repeatedly aligning walls with a sledge isn’t most carpenters’ idea of a good time.   It definitely wasn’t Keith Kennedy’s favorite pastime, which is why he invented the WoodRatchet.

C.H. Hanson calls their Slide Square the next generation of layout tools — it’s a square, it’s a caliper, it’s a protractor, and it fits in your pocket.  It also features holes for marking bolt locations in 2×4 and 2×6 sill plates.  Multi-tasking is a beautiful thing.
