If you don't love lime green, look at it this way: you'll never lose these latest tools from Ryobi. The company's P813 2-Piece Lithium Power Drill Kit has features that run deeper than the new color scheme, including the company's universal 18-volt lithium battery for twice the run time and a 24-position clutch.

Leave the pencils and rulers in the truck if you're using Ridgid's WTS2000L 10-inch wet tile/stone saw. The saw has a laser guide, LED and a plunge cut feature with pre-set standard depths for precise cutting. The all-aluminum construction and integrated folding stand with wheels allows you to huff it into small bathroom jobs without punching a hole in the drywall. For FREE information, visit


Cooper Hand Tools

The creators of the original Crescent brand adjustable wrench are at it again. Cooper Hand Tools' 10-inch Crescent RapidSlide adjustable wrench gives users faster and more accurate jaw adjustments in a larger size. The unique slider replaces the traditionally annoying turning adjusters, and the tool sports an internal debris shield to protect the moving parts. For FREE information, visit



The high-carbon steel construction and electro-coated protective finish makes these tools bona fide heirloom material. Channellock's 369CRFT Lineman's Pliers have an excellent wire stripper, and the cross-hatched teeth and patented spongy blue comfort grips lets you apply some serious torque.
