Cool Tools

Going to start this thread and stick it.

This is for tools that the everyday guy might not ever need or purchase but would be cool to have.

Also for new tools that you think might be useful or just cool.


Here is my first offering:

Saw it on a show today. Pretty cool if you ask me.

guess they don't really have to be unnecessary. Just cool and something you don't see everyday.

Ok I am not sure this qualifies as a tool or not but here it goes.

I happen to come by 3 rolls of this stuff called Mule Tape. I didn't really know what it was at the time but apparently it is used to pull fiberoptics through cables. I snatched up the three rolls of it just cause it loooked cool.

After looking it up it looks like it is almost like high strength rope.


The stuff I have looks like it is rated at 3000lbs break strength.

Anyways seemed cool, except now I have 3 rolls of the stuff laying around. I will never buy twine or string again IN MY LIFE.
http://www.muletape.com/website/nept...6?OpenDocument

The One-Step MULETAPE Advantage

NEPTCO's family of measuring and pulling tapes substantially reduces cable installation labor, material and inventory costs by providing a threading line, a measuring tape, and a winchline all in one product. MULETAPE® reduces damage to underground plants, improves efficiency, and enhances worker safety.

Our tapes are manufactured with a low stretch polyester material that distributes heat across its wide, flat profile. This improves efficiency and prevents "snap back", which occurs when a rope under high tension elongates and either breaks, or snaps back... often injuring the installer.

Features & Benefits

Pre-lubrication reduces friction levels and eliminates duct cutting.
Lower elongation reduces pulling time, enhances worker safety, and prevents crushed capstans
Lightweight, easily blown through conduit or innerduct
Accurate sequential footage or meter markings enable monitoring of cable location during a pull, eliminate the need for measuring tapes, and help determine the quantity remaining on a partial roll
Variety of constructions available
Packaged in splice-free lengths up to 100,000 ft. (30 km) for faster, easier cable placement
Available in a variety of strengths up to 6,000 lbs (2727 kg)
Easily spliced using conventional methods and/or our own MULEKNOT™

What the rolls look like.

I got a new saw that everyone should know about. Cuts smooth as butter and over 8 lbs lighter than the non magnesium model. It's $30 more, but easily worth it. (imho) Most likely the last circular saw I'll ever buy. You should check it out when you get a chance...

Slide the nut in the hole side ways then screw the bolt into it.
