Stanley FaxMax Xtreme Reversible Nail Set

fatmax_nailset.jpgOur deal with nail sets is that we'll go and buy the standard Stanley 3-piece combo kit (you know, the red one the yellow one, and the gray one), and then after about two months, we can only find the gray one. We have no idea what the hell happens to the other two, but it's happened enough times that there's something a little strange about it. True, nail sets are small items. True, they often get passed from carpenter to painter and back to carpenter. But we've never lost anything with the frequency of our nail set.

We've thought about this quite a bit (way too much actually) and decided that maybe fate says we can only handle one nail set at a time and that we lose the others due to some kind of freaky, we're-on-the-island-from-Lost black cloud that lives in our peripheral vision. So possibly our answer may sit with the new FatMax Reversible Nail Set. This nice looking 2-in-1 item houses a 1/32" and 2/32" nail set (the sizes we keep losing), and it looks like changing sizes is as easy as pulling the set out, flipping it over, and setting it back in.

The reversible FatMax costs about $10, which is $2.50 more than the standard 3-piece kit. If we don't lose it in the first couple weeks, it's worth the extra dough.
