It’s been a busy week here at Toolmonger. If you’ve been spending time in the shop — you should! — and you haven’t had a chance to keep up with Toolmonger this week, we suggest you start with these posts, which our readers helped to select:
Haul Lumber With Side Rax
The Side Rax lumber carrying system is proof positive that you don’t need a truck to go to the local big box and haul wood. The Rax hooks can carry a 44 lb. load of lumber to your work site or prepare you for a spirited round of freeway jousting with your friends.
Sharp Things Are Dangerous — Dispose Of Them Properly!
The trouble with used-up razor blades is they’re not entirely used-up. The less-than-perfect blades may not be fit for your precision work anymore, but they can slice up almost anything after being thrown away. The DC-4 blade disposal case stores the blades in a tough, escape-proof box until you’re ready to find a suitable place to dump ’em.
FatMax Mobile Work Station
Instead of a funky drawer system that many toolboxes have, the Stanley Fat Max Mobile Work Station just slides open to reveal all the compartments and drawers at one time, without the hassle of cleaning up four toolboxes and stacking them onto a dolly. All one piece, it can collapse down for travel in about five seconds.
Ninja Wiring With WireTracks
The next time you’re running surround sound in your home, just ask yourself, “What would a ninja do?” A ninja would conceal them in plain sight, perhaps by hiding all the wires in the crown molding or baseboards with his crazy ninja skills. It might sound funny, but that’s just what the WireTracks system does — hollow plastic shields shaped like molding mask the cables from view and streamline your living space.
Corner Clamps: Box-Building Made Simple
Constructing boxes is a basic woodworking skill that takes a great deal of time to get right, if you don’t have a set of corner clamps handy. These clamps hold two pieces of wood together at a right angle, so you don’t have to nail or screw them together while the glue dries.
