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:
G-Oil: Biodegradable, Environmentally Safe Motor Oils
We’re happy to see that Bio friendly products like G Oil are starting to be more convenient than the old standby’s. Instead of disposing of your old two stoke oil in less than desirable fashion you can convert it into soil with G-Disposoil. Even the container is bio degradable – that’s some serious green friendly.
Set-And-Go Tile Spacer
The Set and Go tile spacer is designed for speed. Instead of lining the floor with thousands of little spacers the Set and Go perfectly brackets in where the tile should go and gets you ready to lay the next one. We’re not sure how much time it’s actually saving but were betting you could have a room laid out before your knees give out from all the kneeling.
Preview: Festool’s MFK 700 Multi-Routing Tool
Festool always has hot looking tools with a reputation for serious work. The soon to be available MFK 700 Multi Routing tool left some Toolmonger’s digging for their wallet when a look at the specs revealed the easily changeable configurations and super sleek form factor.
Steck’s EZPull Pliers
The EZ pull pliers aren’t sexy or interesting until you have to pull all the dents out of your Honda from that wild trip to Vegas last month. Then the wide nose that can grab and hold a quarter panel seem and straighten out the crumpled up mess that used to be your daily commuter becomes super handy.
Cheap-Ass Tools: Harbor Freight Indexable Ratchet
The Indexable Ratchet is for those clever wrench heads who are into working smarter, not harder. The ratchet head can swing around obstacles and save you a bunch of knuckle busting and head scratching. You won’t need one everyday but it’s the times you can’t live without one that make it worth the $35 investment.
