Father's Day Gift Guide
Here are four that we think he might like in ascending order of price.
Prazi Monster Hook - This little guy is invaluable for any ladder work involving a cordless drill. It just clicks onto the belt and the cordless drill just falls right into it. If you love your father, don't make him hold the drill between his knees anymore. Our review is here. $6 at Amazon.com.
Renovating Old Houses - We're big fans of this book. It covers a lot of territory and although it's focused on old houses, there are things in it for any homeowner. We constantly find ourselves referencing the sections on the various house systems. Our review is here. $21 at Amazon.com.
Dremel Screwdriver - Ever since we got our hands on this tool, it's become the go-to screwdriver for small around the house repairs. It's little, cool-looking, and the 7.2 volts are way more powerful than you think. It's perfect for picture hanging, hinge adjusting, electrical work, and everything else that doesn't require a ton of power. The screwdriver costs $70, but for an extra $10, you can get it with a battery-powered rotary tool (which by itself costs $55. Huh?). Our review is here. At Amazon.com.This is not to be confused with Dremel's 300 Series, which we're currently giving away. Details here.
Wagner PaintEater - If painting the house is on the list, then do pops a favor and get him a PaintEater. It will make the tedious scraping phase go a lot faster. Our review is here. $75 at Amazon.com.
For more ideas, we still have last year's guide posted up. It's divided into five parts: one ($1-$20), Two ($20-$50), Three ($50-$100), Four ($100-$150), and Five ($150 and up).
