Best hardware tools for your summer projects
Summer can be a great time filled with barbecues, outdoor festivals and a whole host of fun activities, but it’s also the perfect time to kick off a summer project that you have been putting off during the winter months. While handyman gadgetry like the Handibot is more concept than reality at this point, there are plenty of useful and fun tools to get your summer project off the ground.
If you’re trying to lighten up that tool belt, there’s no better option than the Leatherman Freestyle Multi-Purpose Tool. Combining pliers, wire-cutters, a Philips/Flathead screwdriver, straight blade and a bottle opener, this multi-purpose tool does it all. Smart shoppers can grab the multi-purpose tool from Staples and get 4 percent Cash Back on their purchase.
Beer Hammer Bottle Opener ($8.99)
Is your summer project giving you a headache? It might be time to switch your tool to the Beer Hammer Bottle Opener. Is it a real hammer? Yes, but more importantly, it’s also a bottle opener that will keep the cold ones flowing when you need them most. This probably shouldn’t be used in conjunction with any serious power tools, but if you’re just putting a few nails in the wall, why not open a cold beer while you hammer away? ThinkGeek has this wonderful invention along with a 3.5 percent Cash Back offer.
Bosch Power Box 360 ($239.99)
Summer projects don’t have to be all doom and gloom. Sometimes to get a project going in earnest, you need to kick out the jams. Now you can do that with the Bosch Power Box. The Power Box has an 18-volt lithium ion battery inside a radio that offers up 50 watts of sound output through 4-way speakers plus an integrated subwoofer. It’s compatible with pretty much every audio device under the sun from iPod to Sirius Radio, and comes with a remote control for easy tuning while you’re working. Pick it up at Home Depot.
