Jul 16th 2009 9:14AM Coupons? Only if they specify a checkout only for that purpose, trying to get through the lines is already a nightmare with people not knowing what do-dad they have, whether it will do what they need, etc. And half of the time they wait until they are at the register, and ask the clerk for advice, when they should have asked in the department they selected the item in.

Fortunately all of these have contractors desks where those of us who know what we need, and want to get back to getting something done, rather than browsing, can check out.

Feb 9th 2008 12:20PM Actually a ball peen hammer would be preferable, as the face on them is not hardened, reducing the possibility of chipping.

Most of us don't carry one on the job however, I think that is what the author had ion mind.

Yikes! A snake!

Feb 2nd 2008 12:37PM I saw this the other day, what a great idea! I can envision a lot of applications for this too, , from the ones you mentioned, to locating wiring lost in chases,examining duct work, etc.

Tired of overpriced beer? Store your drink in your seat cushion!

Feb 2nd 2008 11:15AM Not to mention that by advertising, they have taken away any covert advantage this product may have had!
