Tool Tank Multi-Tool

Tool Tank

The Tool Tank is a multi-tool keychain that features 3 screwdriver bits cleverly disguised within the tracks of a tank.

Each bit magnetically attaches to the turret, which rotates up for use. Just pick your bit, rotate the turret and you’ve got yourself a clever little screwdriver that’s always ready to do ‘battle’ with chores around the house.

…It’s Things Thursday: Project Bore Snake?

Project Bore Snake

A Bore Snake is “a one-piece cleaning rod, brush, patch, solvent and oil applicator in a flexible package one can fold up and carry in a pocket, ready for instant use”.

Apparently, the soldiers in Iraq are given cleaning tools that don’t work as well or as quickly as they should, despite being more expensive than the Bore Snake. Also, because of the types of terrain that they’re fighting on, gun cleaning has become a frequent occurrence (as often as a few times per day).

Thus, Project Bore Snake aims to send Bore Snakes over to the troops so that they can have the best possible tools at their disposal, and so that no lives are lost due to improper gun maintenance.

While feelings about the war are obviously mixed, I think that a project like this is a great way to support the troops themselves without supporting the cause that they’re fighting for, and it does a whole lot more than a yellow ribbon magnet ever did.

The 15 essential tools that Tony came up with should have you shaking and stirring anything from a simple gin and tonic to a dreaded Cosmo, and everything can be bought for under $75 (if you skip the silver plating). It’s drinking time!
