So cutting foam rubber isn’t your thing; still, you’ve got to love a tool that has counter-reciprocating blades. The counter-reciprocating action is supposed to cut down on vibration and noise and give you more control for precise cutting of all densities of foam rubber, plastic foams, and even carpet.

Made in Germany, the 3.2A motor can produce 3,200 SPM (which I’m guessing means Strokes Per Minute) with no load. The tool operates with a long paddle-type switch and can be locked running. You can change the four different length blades without tools.

At Toolmonger, we try to stick to bringing you new and cool tools, so we don’t share a lot of websites — but sometimes we need to be reminded why we have those tools. When I rediscovered Matthias Wandel’s woodworking  site, I thought “Holy crap — this is a guy who knows how to use his tools to build some damn cool stuff.”

This isn’t the first time we’ve featured projects from his website. He’s the guy who built the wooden combination lock and brought you the Eyeballing Game. If you haven’t yet explored his site, you should: It’s chock-full of other amazing Wandel-ful projects.

If you need to slice really big stuff, you need a really big saw. The KASTOmaxcut is a really big bandsaw. Compared to the the person squatting next to it, the blade is thicker most people’s arms and the wheels are almost as wide as a person is high.

Growing up in Paul Bunyan country, I remember seeing antique two-man saws on display in many businesses around town. I used to picture lumberjacks a century ago, knee-deep in snow, hacking away at a 4-foot diameter tree trunk with one of these saws — no gas, no electricity, just pure muscle.

Ever dream of scaling a wall like Spiderman? Cling Climbing is working on a device that’ll let you: The only caveat is that the walls need to be made of a magnetic material like steel. So what’s the practical purpose of this device? They list such uses as climbing power pylons, ships, silos, or steel bridges to do maintenance or inspections.

Whether out of boredom or necessity, at some time most of us have tried to join a few pieces of paper together without any external fasteners — the most common method is folding and ripping a tab in the fold. The Eco Stapler allows you to join up to 5 pieces of paper together in a much neater manner.

When you press down on the Eco Stapler it creates a slot with a hanging tab and a slit in the papers. Then somewhere between pushing down and releasing the magic happens; the tab is wrapped around and pulled through the slit, joining the papers together.

Next time you need to go logging underwater, your gas-powered or electric chain saw isn’t going to cut it. You’re going to need a tool like one of these air powered chainsaws from CS Unitec. They manufacture a few models of air-powered chain saws, including the underwater model with an exhaust valve.

Besides underwater, air-powered chain saws are safer in hazardous or wet locations. Drawing 92CFM at 90PSI to produce 4HP, the low maintenance saws start easily and the motor and chain have separate lubricating systems.

The saws come with 17″, 21″, or 25″ bars and a standard “Super Chisel” chain. You can also buy carbide tipped and ripping chains for the saws. One of these air-powered chainsaws will run you about $3000 new, but it looks like you can rent them for $130 a day.

Few things in woodworking are more satisfying than making a perfect paper-thin shaving with a well-maintained plane. If you’re using a spill plane you’re actually trying to make special shavings called spills rather than trimming wood from a work piece. A spill is a long coiled wood shaving that was used to transfer flame, such as from fireplace to candles, before the advent of matches. Before finding this spill plane from Lee Valley, as far as I was aware, you either had to buy an antique spill plane or make one yourself.
