We've seen references in a few places about the launch of a new site called tools.com. Currently the site is nothing more than a placeholder with some extensive legal disclaimers and a place to leave your email address so you can be notified when the site officially launches. The tag line, "the right tool at the right price," makes us to think it's some sort of retail/price comparison site, maybe with a reader ranking system like over at Tool-Rank and ToolCritic or possibly some kind of auction site. Judging from the detailed legal disclaimers, it's either backed by a little coin or someone has a kickass legalzoom.com account. We're also pretty intrigued by the line, "Our site is not directed towards children 13 years of age or younger..." Sweet.
No matter what it is, 'the best thing to happen to tools since electricity' is quite a claim, particularly after watching an episode of Hot for Tools. So head on over to tools.com and log in to get alerted when the site launches. Or if you don't want to, we've done it and we'll probably post something here when it all goes down.

haha, nice find, that site does look pretty hardcore. Everyday it seems some tool store is launching a new woot clone, maybe this is another one. I dont even know what to say about hotfortools, except for she is adorable.
