Last week we attended the National Hardware Show. It’s the biggest trade show of the year for hardware industry retailers, featuring over 2,500 exhibitors. Even though we’ve been attending this show for more than 15 years, we still find something new every year. Here are a few of the tools that caught our eye.
We first saw this versatile tool system at IWF last year (watch video of our first look at the Triton Tools WorkCenter at IWF). The WorkCenter features a base and several interchangeable tool inserts, including a clamping table, router table, contractor saw and project saw (a saw that slides on a guide rail). Their plan is to offer this modular system in several combinations. It looks a perfect system for small shops or jobsite projects.
High-Tech Tape Measure
The new eTAPE16 is a 16-ft. tape measure that features a digital display, three memory functions, several calculation presets and Bluetooth compatibility. It reads distances based on a code that is marked on the tape. Best of all, it is priced at $ 29.95 – not much more than a traditional tape.
