Garrett Wade tool giveaway time!

Garrett Wade tool giveaway time!


Ok, we admit it, we’re tool junkies. Some people have it for gadgets, but who can resist a great-looking (and great-functioning) hand tool? Make: Online and Garrett Wade would like to give you some.


The Garrett Wade Push Drill is a special tool that drills holes by rotating as you push down on the handle. When you release, the handle springs back, clearing the hole. From the product description:

Remember the classic Yankee Push Drill that was once found in every shop and every jobsite tool bag? Made by Stanley for decades until they dropped it about 4 years ago, it was made of chrome-plated solid brass, and beautifully finished. Now we have had it custom-made for Garrett Wade in Taiwan.


Our own Sean Ragan describes the Extra Heavy Duty Screwdriver Set (which he reviewed in MAKE, Volume 19) as “military-grade awesome:”

These are full-tang, forged-steel, flat-blade screwdrivers that serve equally well in turning screws, prying stuff, and, you know, killing people who try to open your hatch. They’re heavy and nigh indestructible, and they have an anomalously sleek, streamlined shape that feels great in your hand and is not bad looking in your boot, either.

And you can win one of these Garrett Wade tools! Just leave a comment on this post and tell us how these tools would help you complete a project you’re working on, or one you’ve yet to start! Please be sure to include your email address in the comment form field (won’t be published). All comments will be closed at noon PST on Wednesday, September 30, and the two lucky winners will be announced next week here on Make: Online. Good luck!
