Hot tools 2013
Don't be the last to know about the newest toolbox innovations
The hottest new tool for the shop in the early 1980s was probably a power bar so you could have many power tools plugged in at once—not to mention the wizardry of the (gasp!) surge protector. Fast-forward to today and you’ll find the trend has gone in the opposite direction. Cordless anything and everything (even a wine corkscrew) is at the top of many home workshoppers’ “need it” list. And don’t let the tools on our list that aren’t battery-powered fool you; even the analog chisels and painter’s tape are as technologically advanced as the cordless wonders of 2013.
