The week in tools

The week in tools

Here’s the latest this week in tools from Chuck!

This week we looked at a double-thick aluminum framing square – light like plastic, strong like steel – as well as a couple of tools you might think about making yourself: a 50-gallon drum dolly with a curved side that easily rocks the drum into a horizontal position for draining or transport and a coupler that holds broken tie-rods together long enough to let you push the car out of the road or onto a trailer. We also found a tough little double-claw chain shortener that’s looks handy for tie-down duty, and readers weighed in on the best products and methods to get your hands clean after a dirty project.
