Maybe you don’t always have to cut PVC and re-connect it with foul-smelling glue to install it. In some applications, maybe you can just bend it. There are heaters for bending PVC, which at the best smell really bad or at the worst emit some nasty chemicals, but Rack-A-Tiers’ Pipe Viper allows you to bend PVC cold.

Yes, you read it right — the Spot-Rite torpedo level has male pipe threads on both ends so you can screw it into a 1/2″, 3/4″ or 1″ pipe fitting to check level, plumb, and 45°.

So, how do you fit three different thread sizes on two ends? Since it’s hard to see in the picture, we’re assuming either one end has a stepped thread, or the level comes with a thread adapter.

Pricing for the Spot-Rite level starts at $22. Both the Summit and Allied sites say that this is a torpedo level and gunner nipple in one tool. Can anybody shed some light on what exactly a gunner nipple is?

Given the state of 2x lumber you get nowadays, why wouldn’t you use steel in non-structural applications? Why screw around trying to use warped, twisted, and cupped studs when you can use uniform steel studs? The metal studs even have pre-cut holes to run most plumbing and electrical, unless you need to need to run something like 2″ water, vent, or waste pipes. In that case you’ll need a tool like Greenlee’s 713 stud punch. Think of it as the big-ass version of a paper hole puncher — only for steel studs.

How could anybody resist talking about a product named the Drain Tornado? This water-powered tool connects to a garden hose and uses water pressure to clear clogs in waste pipes and gutters.

The drain tornado screws onto a standard 3/4″ fitting and features a high-powered main jet at the end of the tool and two side jets to “blast through” debris. Two rotary tail knives also help to dislodge material.

We previously covered Trend’s Routabout jig for cutting replaceable access hole covers, but recently they revealed a new system that looks much simpler to use because it utilizes a 1/2″ drill instead of a router. You simply drill a 102mm (4″) hole into 18mm (.0708″) or 22mm (7/8″) chipboard, plywood, OSB, or plasterboard and cover it with either a metal or mesh plate.

The Cavity Access System comes with a 102mm hole saw with a heavy duty arbor and pilot drill, a 120mm (4-3/4″) rebate cutter for cutting the cover plate recess, five steel covers, and a waste removal tool all packaged in a plastic case. The system will run you 65 pounds or about $105, not including shipping and taxes.

You use a chain wrench when a pipe won’t move and you want it to.  You use a chain vise to keep a pipe from moving when it wants to.  This portable chain vise and stand from RIDGID will help you thread, bend, or cut pipe when you’re away from the shop.
