This Father’s Day, we’re running a number of features on the site dedicated to dear ol’ dad. One of the them involves reaching out to you, our readers, and asking for tips and sayings from your father (or grandfathers) about the noble art of making things. We want to gather up the best of these “Tips My Dad Says” and run a feature piece on Father’s Day (Sunday, June 18).
To say thanks for participating, our friends at Leatherman are giving away four of their SuperTool 300 multitools. As someone who’s had a Leatherman tool on his belt, or close at hand, for at least the last 20 years, I can personally attest to the awesomeness of these tools. To be eligible for the drawing, all you have to do is leave a tip, saying, or story about the dads in your life, related to tools and making in the comments below. The eligible drawing period will be until midnight on Wednesday (June 15) and we’ll announce the winners on Thursday morning. And then stay tuned for the feature piece on Sunday morning.
Update: And the winners ARE…

Kicking things off, we asked the MAKE team and some of our contributors to share some of their dad-ish tips. Here are a few (many more on Sunday).
