Give your car a showroom shine with the Makita Sander-Polisher ($200). This nine-pound polisher features a variable speed dial that runs from 600-3,000 rpm, letting you go from slow buffing to aggressive polishing in the turn of a dial. Of course, it's also easily converted into a sander, helping you to re-stain that deck or fence in no time.
Bottle opener, screwdriver, Strider wrench, nail puller, and improvised shank. Nope, it's not another Swiss Army knife — its the TAD Gear B.R.A.T.T. ($100). Made from solid 6AL-4V titanium billet, this 3-inch long tool is ready to tackle nearly any job you can imagine, and is small enough to go pretty much anywhere. [Thanks, Kenny]
If you're still using a myriad of devices, wasting gasoline, and fighting with extension cords to keep your yard looking great, you should check out the Craftsman 18V Convertible Cordless Power Handle ($75). This lightweight handle docks with and powers four Craftsman tools, including a weed eater ($120; comes with handle), hedge trimmer ($60), sweeper ($40), and pole saw ($90). The handle's high capacity NiCad Battery provides hours hours of use, and the 1-hour charger holds two batteries to eliminate waiting. You'll save on storage space, too.
