There are hammers, and then there are Hardcore Hammers ($60). These prolific pounders feature a milled core forged from the same steel as a jackhammer bit, a smooth outer rim to protect the traction surface — and your fingers — and legendary durability. What you build with all this awesomeness is up to you.
As the snow continues to fall here at Uncrate HQ, our thoughts turn to that highly-irritating of winter rituals — the need to scrap snow, ice, and other crud off your windows and windshield. The Snowdozer ($17) can make this process a little less heinous, thanks to a double-blade design that scrapes both forward and backward, a front handle to reduce strain, an extendable, telescoping arm for reaching far across your huge SUV, a built-in brush for sweeping the small stuff away, and a front plow to keep snow off your hands. Next up? Your driveway.
Get your weekend project done quickly and easily with the Craftsman Ratcheting Wrench Set ($40). This handy set includes seven wrenches — metric sizes 10 thru 15 + 17mm — and feature a universal teeth design that can grip and turn six different types of nuts and bolts, meaning less time spent digging in the toolbox and more time watching pre-game shows.
