Monster Oscillating Tool
The most common complaints about oscillating tools are slow speed and a lack of power. Dremel has addressed these issues with the aptly named 'Velocity.' This tool boasts a 7-amp motor, while most oscillating tools are in the 2- to 3-amp range.
The oscillation angle has been increased to 5 degrees so you can remove more material with every pass of the blade. The tool kit even comes with a blade big enough to cut the occasional 2x4, but don't throw out your circular saw just yet. This beast is heavier than most other oscillating tools and has a thicker handle, so if you have small hands or do a lot of overhead work, this may not be the tool for you.
The Velocity is equipped with a control foot that flips down and acts as a guide when you're cutting sheet materials. The foot helps keep the blade at a consistent depth in the material and can prevent cutting too deep into walls, ceilings and floors, where pipes and wires may be lurking near the surface. The tool comes with a bag, three blades and sanding accessories, and it sells for $180 at Lowe's.
Cordless Glue Gun
Black & Decker has transformed a useful tool into one that's super handy. Its new 20V MAX Cordless Glue Gun feels like a real tool in your hand. And it heats up in 90 seconds.
Unlike most glue guns, which lie on their sides, this model stands up straight, keeping the business end out of harm's way. And as the name says, it's cordless! It runs off a Black & Decker 20V MAX lithium battery and has a run-time of up to three hours. You can buy just the tool online for $40 or get the tool and battery for $80.
