If you're a down-with-it-diyer like me, I'm sure you've come across about every home improvement tool you can imagine. Or have you? Check out some unfamiliar but very cool tools here.
We'll describe the first set of three, so you'll know what may be missing from your tool set and what to get for your next home renovation project.
Just for fun, we'll also show you another three tools that seem like they come from another planet and ask what you think they do!
Tools for special projects
Electric caulk gun. This cordless caulk and adhesive gun includes a clear barrel so you can easily see remaining material as you work. The powerful applicator delivers great pushing force for tough applications and the highest level of bead control. It even stops excess material from oozing with the release of the trigger (saves me some messy work!).
What the heck do these things do?
OK, now put on your imagination along with your hard hat, and try to figure out what each of these tools is designed to do.
Think you know what any of these items does for real?
I'd love to get your comments below -- the more clever the better (and probably the more accurate).
Stumped? Not to worry, we'll tell you what these tools do for a living in an upcoming post.
