From power tools and kitchen appliances to hand tools and stocking stuffers, Home Improvement and Repairs has your gift ideas covered for the handymen and homeowners on your holiday list.


Pinnacle Marking and Measuring Tools

Pinnacle measuring and marking tools include general measuring instruments and finely calibrated tools for both advanced and entry-level woodworkers. “We emphasized ultra-precise design when we were creating these tools,” says Senior Product Development Manager Joe Young. “For instance, Precision Squares are monolithically machined out of one piece versus having riveted panels. This reduces any possibility of error in assembly.” New items added to the lineup include the 24-in. Precision T-Square, Drawing Triangle Set, Straight Rules (both Imperial and Metric), Thumb Rules (both Imperial and Metric), Precision Squares (both Imperial and Metric), Center Finder, Universal Slide Stop for Rulers, Straight Rule Hook Stop, 18-in. Triangle Ruler and Mini Carpenter Square. Visit woodcraft.com.


Scrigit Scraper

The Scrigit Scraper is a pen-shaped, non-scratch cleaning tool that provides a quick and convenient way to remove small amounts of unwanted substances from household and automotive surfaces, edges and grooves. It can be used instead of fingernails and metal tools to quickly clean off small areas of unwanted substances, such as grime, caulk, putty, candle wax, latex paint splatters, dried food, adhesive stickers, labels and tape. The Scrigit Scraper is two scrapers in one. A rounded tip simulates the scraping shape of a fingernail for scraping off small spots, cleaning curved surfaces, and removing adhesive labels, stickers and tape. The flat-edged tip is best for getting into tight spaces and cleaning off unwanted materials from flat surfaces, edges, corners and door tracks. Made in the USA of a durable plastic resin that easily washes clean and won’t conduct electricity, the Scrigit Scraper is available in 2-packs and 5-packs. Visit www.scrigit-scraper.com.

Dust Deputy Low-Pro Lid Separator

Need to manage wood dust at the home, garage, or small shop?

At only 4 inches tall, the Dust Deputy Low-Pro is the most compact separator available from Oneida Air, allowing it to fit underneath a workbench and in other tight spaces. Uniquely designed to offer up to 50 percent more airflow (CFM) and allow debris to pass through unobstructed—two common limitations of other lid-style separators—the Dust Deputy Low-Pro excels in its ability to collect a variety of materials, from wood dust to trash. The new Dust Deputy Low-Pro pre-separates 99 percent of dust and debris before it reaches your vacuum’s filter, eliminating clogging and suction loss while extending the life of your filter. Made in the USA from clear, durable resin and designed for vacuums with 2.5-in. hoses, the Low-Pro lid separator attaches to any standard 5-gallon bucket with two included latches.

Diablo Angled Sanding Block

Diablo Tools reusable, angled hand-sanding block has a dual-sided body design that features both a cushioned foam side for contour sanding and a dense foam side for flat sanding. It is designed to fit the exclusive Diablo SandNET sanding sheets—the only reusable sanding sheets on the market today. Traditional foam sanding blocks only provide a one-density, single grit application. With their inferior foam design, those sanding blocks are highly disposable, clog up and wear out quickly, resulting in less material removal and more time and money spent on the job switching out blocks. In response, Diablo’s new angled reusable block is the only sanding block that is truly a “tool,” allowing users to reuse it time and time again. Traditional sanding sheets are prone to ripping, clogging, wearing out and require constant replacement. With Diablo’s clog-reducing net design, SandNET sanding sheets outperform and extend sanding life up to 10X than other products. If it begins to load or clog, just clean the grit by shaking, vacuuming, or rinsing for continued use. Visit www.diablotools.com.

Acheter un bateau locaboat représente une dépense importante, donc si vous ne prévoyez pas de l'utiliser souvent, il est moins cher de le louer. Si vous envisagez d'acheter un bateau, mais que vous n'êtes pas sûr de ce que vous voulez, la location peut être un excellent moyen de vous familiariser avec différents types de bateaux et de décider si vous aimez le style de vie nautique.
