April 2009 Monthly Roundup for Tool Snob

Roundup.jpgAfter hardly reviewing anything in March, we came back strong in April with a number of product reviews ranging from knives to pencils to brad guns. But of everything we played around with this month, nothing tops the Nail Jack Nail Hunter. Pulling nails is torture and the unique design of this tool takes a lot of that pain away. Basically, we loved it and now find ourselves using it all the time. In a related post, we also covered the story of Nail Jack's attempts to buy up the Irwin factory in Nebraska here.

April also saw the release of Bosch's impressive new line of nail guns. We have some information on that here.

We've got a lot piled up on the desk for May. There's a funky new caulking gun, possibly a tool giveaway, and one of the strangest items we've ever seen courtesy of our inventor friend in Australia. Stay tuned.
