December 2008 Monthly Roundup for Tool Snob

It was a wacky month for us here. We had everything planned out but then lost our power for six days right at the height of the month. This screwed up our xmas shopping, our day to day schedule, and the attention that we planned to give to the site. We essentially lost a week of posting and then, the day after Christmas, Mrs. Tool Snob gave birth to Tool Snob Jr., which we still haven't fully recovered from. So things have been irregular for us here, but this week we're going to be back to daily postings. Keep in mind that we've got a newborn now, so if you notice more spelling and grammar errors than normal, that's why. Thanks for the patience, and in the mean time, feel free to review everything that we wrote in December...

The December Tool of the Month is the Gator Sanding Sponge Holder. It's effective, inexpensive, and if it ever falls apart, we can use the handle as a bath toy.

I think I'd have to agree with you. I've never heard of Secco and I also did quite a bit of google searching and the only place the tool shows up is ebay. ALERT! ALERT! ALERT!

It could be a perfectly nice tool (it better be for the $200 asking price). If I were in your position, and that's the kind of money you're looking to spend, I would seriously think about the Rockwell SoniCrafter or even the Fein. Good Luck.

I gots to know before I purchase - what's the deal with the SECCO 916 Oscillating Tool? This non-pedigreed tool is prolifically listed on E-bay, but I can't find anything about it after way too much Google noodling. Me thinks I smell a rat, or a dud. What say you, oh soothsayer of all that is good and bad in Tool Land?
