As the quality of lumber drops, manufacturers respond by giving us tools to deal with these less-than-ideal timbers. Stanley designed their 93-310 board bender to help you handle twisted construction materials — if you need to straighten deck boards or joists, this is your tool.
The 5/8″ high-carbon steel bar features a cushioned, vinyl-grip handle that lets you kneel with all your weight on the board bender to get those boards in line. This leaves your hands free to nail them in place.
You’ll drop about 40 to 50 bucks on the board bender.
