Today we painted the kitchen. I was going to the garage to get some tools. My wife said wait!

She gave me an early Christmas present - a Crescent Oddjob tool.

I am big fan of quality tools and have a garage full. But this little gizmo was a nice surprise.
it has a soft mallet face, A metal hammer face, A reversible driver with multiple bits and a razor knife (these store on the handle). Also came with a flexible bit adapter but I did not use it.

I used the bit and driver to remove the outlet and switch plates. The razor to cut the tape. The bit to open the paint and then the soft face mallet to seal it back up. It was pretty handy.

Here is a link to where she got it.

I have no connection to them. Just thought it was a handy tool that would make a good stocking stuffer.

Wow, Phil, I love the compact nature of it and that is what would make it perfect for an apartment dweller like me. I may have to consider this. (Now if it just had a built in fountain pen. Laughing1 )

Phil, this was just too perfect for an apartment dweller like me. I ordered mine through Amazon and with Prime got two day free shipping.

I hate pulling things out of my junk drawer (one of manyRolleyes ) and this is a great solution. Thank Mary Lou for me. Smile

Hmm...I'm going to have to mention this to the wife. Our tool situation is completely out of hand with tools lost everywhere.

I may even have to pick up their ratcheting adjustable wrench.

And a razor!
I'm going to have to add this to my wish list.

Freddy,
Pair this with your Montverde Tool fountain pen and you can build all the storage space you needBiggrin

ML was tickled pink that I liked the gift. Told her I wanted to order one for camp. She told me there was a second one under the tree just for camp. Gotta love that women.

The Monteverde Tool Pen arrived this afternoon. Smile I have had no time to play with it but hope to put up photos sometime in the next week.
