Saturday Morning Round Up for Week Ending 6-5
June 5, 2010
It looks like the topic of discussion on several sites is about Father’s Day. Several sites are talking about gift ideas and offering Father’s Day contests this week and there are lots of great prizes to win out there.
Home Construction & Improvement has a featured story entitled 2010 Father’s Day Gift Ideas. There are lots of great home improvement gift ideas for your dad in this article.
The team over at One Project Closer is giving away a brand new set of V-Jaw Tongue & Groove Pliers to 3 lucky readers. Any DIYer understands that water pump pliers are an essential part of your tool kit and Channellock sets the standard in the industry. I have at least 5 pairs of different sizes of Channellock water pump pliers. As an electrician, I use at least one size of water pump pliers on a daily basis.
A Concord Carpenter Comments is giving away a $50.00 gift card to Eagle America. Eagle America is “The World’s Router Bit Source” with over 2,000 router bits for you to choose from. The company is family owned and operated and offers over 5,600 router bits, cutters, blades, power / woodworking tools, jigs and accessories.
Charles and Hudson has a great review on the Dremel 8200 12V Cordless Rotary Tool. Every DIYer needs a Dremel tool. I use mine for sanding down the dogs nails, cleaning corroded contacts, etching my name on my tools, removing paint in electrical boxes for grounding and lots more. I can’t imagine any dad who wouldn’t love one of these for Father’s Day.
Have you seen The Handyguys Podcast? Well now you can. Brian and Paul announced Handyguys TV this week. They currently have 3 videos up and lots more on the way. This is something that I would love to do. Most people, myself included learn quickly and easily from video. Several people have emailed me requesting that I create videos for several different “How to Projects” on this site. However, I know nothing about video. I think the biggest thing I need to learn here is how to edit video. Do you have any video editing software recommendations?
Did you find any interesting home improvement related articles this week?
