Rockwell Jaw Stand $63
Often times do it yourself can mean do it by yourself and you wish you had a second set of hands. Thats where the Rockwell Jaw Stand will be your best friend. This portable stand folds down for easy storage, weighs 13.5 pounds and can hold up to 220 pounds. It’s swiveling and tilting head makes it easy to lift, support, hold, or clamp which is perfect for a DIYers many projects. Dewalt Circular Saw $119
A circular saw is a very versatile tool to have in your tool box. It can do many cuts like a rip and cross cut that its more expensive counterpart table saw and chop saw can do. Plus if I need to cut a large piece of plywood I can do this by myself with a circular saw. I would not be able to do this by myself with a table saw. This Dewalt DWE575 Lightweight Circular Saw was given the Editor’s Choice for circular saws on Popular Mechanics this year and was top rated on Family Handyman as well. Kreg Pocket Hole Jig $129
The Kreg K5 Pocket Hole Jig is a great tool for creating pocket holes. Pocket holes are perfect for joining pieces of wood together, whether side by side or with a 90 degree joint. Having a jig to create pocket holes makes projects much easier. I used pocket holes to make this DIY Garage Workbench. Dremel Micro Rotary Kit $69
Getting into small spaces can be challenging. Enter the Dremel Micro Rotary Tool Kit. This awesome tool can be used for cutting, grinding, sanding, etching, buffing, and shaping materials such as wood, laminate, ceramic, metal and even carving a pumpkin. It got the thumbs up from Family Handyman as it was featured in the Stuff We Love series. Ryobi Cordless Brad Nailer $129
This Ryobi Cordless 18 Gauge Brad Nailer is one of my favorite tools. I have used it in many of my projects like this Farmhouse Tray, Scrap Wood Lanterns, and this DIY BBQ Wood Caddy. I love having a powerful and portable nail gun without a hose getting in the way or the need for an air compressor. Kreg Clamp Track Kit $99 (45″), $119 (69″)
Here is another example of the amazing products that Kreg makes that makes DIY projects easier. Check out this Kreg Clamp Track Kit in 45″ (if you prefer longer they have a Track Kit in 69″). These tracks offer a clamping solution that attaches to a workbench then you clamp (must use Kreg’s brand clamps) your project in place. Bonus…if you surface mount this then you can use it to make a 90 degree angle.Dewalt Angle Grinder $75
If you’re looking for one tool with many uses then consider the Dewalt DWE402 Angle Grinder, which was rated one of the top angle grinders by Popular Mechanics. We had to borrow an angle grinder several times until we finally got our own. Proof that it is a good tool to have around. Here is a post from Family Handyman that talks about what an angle grinder can do.WORX Pegasus Work Table $99
If you are in need of a workbench then check out the WORX Pegasus Multi-Function Work Table and Saw Horse. This functions as a mobile workstation that comes with clamps and can also function as a saw horse. The table can can hold up to 300 pounds and the saw horse can hold up to 1,000 pounds. This work table is a good solution if you don’t have a workbench or have very little space to work in. I used a mobile workstation until I built my DIY Garage Workbench. And even with my workbench I will still use my mobile workstation. Makita Jig Saw $70
A jigsaw is a great addition to a DIYers arsenal of power tools especially when making anything but a straight cut. The Makita 4329K Jig Saw was rated a top pick on The Saw Guy. Use a jig saw for making curves and for cutting not only wood but metal, fiberglass, tile and drywall (with the correct blade).Dremel Oscillating Tool $90
The Dremel MM40-05 Multi Max Oscillating Tool is the Dremel Micro Rotary Tool mentioned above, but on steroids. An oscillating tool is a saw, sander, scraper and grinder all packaged in a nice hand held tool. While the rotary tool works well in small tight spaces, the multi max works better for larger areas that still require some fine details and control. This post by Popular Mechanics shows you ten jobs you can do with this tool.Don’t forget to PIN now to SAVE for later.I hope this list helps you find something amazing for the DIYer in your life.
