Cepco BoWrench

cepco_bowrench.jpgAs the summer comes to an end, and your deck project drags on and on, you should possibly think about picking up a BoWrench. It's a decking tool that helps create a consistent layout, particularly being useful with warped boards (specifically yours which have been getting rained on for the past month). The idea behind it is simple; the wrench binds up on a joist and the handle allows you to press the deck board into place.

Although we've never used a BoWrench, we've used plenty of other methods for getting deck boards straight; from beater blocks to ground down, sharpened screwdrivers driven into the joist and levered back. Pretty much at some point during every deck project we do, we think, "we should get one of those BoWrench thingys."

Here's a 40 second video of the BoWrench with some killer salsa music accompanying.

At Amazon.com (around $35)
