I'm hardly one that is an expert when it comes to tools. My guy is the one that handles the projects requiring tools since he has more physical strength to operate them than I do. However, I know having the right tools like the ones from CHANNELLOCK can really make a big difference in a successful completion of a do-it-yourself project.
When I had the opportunity to work with CHANNELLOCK and review their two new tools, the 620 Professional Laser Level and the 13' N 1 Ratcheting Screwdriver, I was eager to do so since these were tools that even a weakling like I could work.
Seriously, I had hung a few pictures that were a little off with the old-fashioned method that needed adjusting. Luckily, my new 620 Professional Laser Level arrived and helped me correct my mistakes in a flash. The four rare-earth magnets helped keep everything more level.
This level also three 45-minute arc vials at 0, 45, and 90 degrees that you will appreciate as well. What else I thought was fantastic was this tool can last up to 10,000 hours while being accurate up to 1/4 of an inch at 100 feet! It's also waterproof and is shock-resistant. Last but not least, it has a V-Groove design for easy pipe and conduit mounting that my guy was happy to hear.
The 13' N 1 Ratcheting Screwdriver was already being coveted by my guy while I was admiring my wonderful laser level. He liked how easy it was to swap the bits and the two-way operation. I could tell he was already planning something as he looked at the 28 Tooth Ratchet that provides that 225 inch pounds of Torque. I smiled to watch him carefully unwrap his new tool and then giving it a feel to test out the dual composition grip. Next, he examined the 13 different tips that could help him with basically any job, the convenient bit storage, and multiple bit load (1/4" Hex Shaft).
I honestly loved the 620 Professional Laser Level for precision wall hanging of your pictures. This is so precise and will save you so much time and trouble trying to do it the old-fashioned way. My guy really was a big fan of the 13' N 1 Ratcheting Screwdriver because of the variety of tips, the ease of use, and the comfortable grip. In retrospect, we both thought everyone should get one of each for their own or those on your holiday gift list because they will makes do-it-yourself projects so much easier!
