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 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.

We’ve posted about ratcheting adjustable wrenches from Sears before. Now it looks like they’re selling a more promising ratcheting adjustable wrench from Schroeder. Unlike the laminated steel Reflex, the Schroeder wrench is actually forged from chrome-vanadium steel and heat treated.

The wrench appears to ratchet by using a spring-loaded worm gear that allows the adjustable jaw to move when it turns in one direction and probably jams the jaw against the fastener in the other. A switch on the side of the wrench controls whether the worm gear moves, allowing the jaw to ratchet, or remain fixed.

It happens to everyone now and again: You need a wrench or socket, but you’re not sure exactly what size the bolt is. So you go back to your toolbox and grab a couple of different sizes. You get back to the fastener in question and find out you chose… poorly.

Situations like this could be prevented with a tool like the Size Catcher from Wilmar. Small enough to fit on your key chain so you have it with you at all times, this gauge from their Performance Tool line can measure the size of the nut or bolt so you only need make a single trip.

Back in my day, installing a door used to be a skill, but now these newfangled do-dads make it so easy a dad-gum fool can do it. OK, so maybe that’s an exaggeration, but door installation kits have come down in price to the point where they practically give them away with a lock set. Usually these kits are made for locating and drilling the holes for the lock and latch, and leave you to your own devices to mortise out the the door so the latch sits flush.

Like its name says, Ryobi’s door latch installation kit is an all-in-one tool for installing door latches. With it you can score the outline for either rounded or square latches, then chisel out the mortise to the correct depth. There’s even a built-in screwdriver on board for screwing in the latch.

Perusing through Home Depot’s “gift” section, I came across a lot of cheap flashlights and multifunction tools, but one tool really caught my eye. It was your run-of-the-mill multi-bit screwdriver from Husky — but it had a hole in the middle of the handle that you could stick the shaft into to make it a T-handled screwdriver. I thought, “Holy crap, why have I never seen something like this before?”

Now given, if you have to crank on a screw so hard that you need a T-handle screwdriver, you’re probably doing something wrong, but there are times when you just can’t get enough leverage to remove a stuck screw — and I could totally see this tool saving your ass in that situation.

Take a look at Irwin’s new Universal Handsaw. If you’re like me, the first thing you’ll wonder is, “what the heck is with that hump on the blade?” It turns out Irwin is riding the multi-tool wave. The hump provides clearance from the handle so you can use the top of the blade as a straight-edge. Also, if you butt the handle up to the edge of a board, the slot and top of the blade are perpendicular to the edge and the other side of the hump is 45° to the edge.

Irwin touts several other improvements in this saw. The triple-ground teeth supposedly eliminate binding, and they’ll cut through most materials three times faster then “traditional” hand saws while giving the finished-looking cut of a fine-cutting saw. They mold the handle from lighter-than-wood high density resin, and the 0.85mm thick blade is coated with a water-based lacquer.
