A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
Dead On 18-Inch AnnihilatorBought this wrecking bar several years ago for drywall removal. A very aggressive tool indeed! I used it to punch a hole in the drywall, grip the drywall and pry it off in big chunks. I even knocked down and removed 2 x 4s in the wall with it. Weighing nearly 4 pounds, it is much heavier than the hammer I would have used, and that weight adds to its destructive power. Not a bad choice to leave near my earthquake buckets. And an awesome zombie-stopper when the apocalypse comes!
