DeWalt Pin Nailer
DeWalt recently introduced a new pin nailer that boasts the industry’s best combination of features, performance, and capabilities. (In case you’re wondering, a pin nailer is an air-powered tool that shoots super-thin headless nails, called pins. The 23-gauge pins are so tiny that you often don’t even have to fill the resulting holes with putty.)
Pin nailers are ideal for attaching thin wood edge banding, small-diameter moldings, cabinet trim, and picture frames. DeWalt’s nailer accepts pins ranging in length from ⅝ to 2 inches, which is pretty impressive considering that most pin nailers can shoot pins only up to about 1⅜ inch long. This is also the only pin nailer with a tool-free jam-release mechanism that allows you to quickly remove jammed pins without having to mess with a wrench or screwdriver. Great Gifts for DIYers
WORX Cordless ExacTrack Circular Saw
Making long, perfectly straight cuts with a circular saw can be frustratingly difficult, unless you’ve got the new WORX Cordless ExacTrack Circular Saw. Built into the saw shoe is a guide that pivots up and out of the way, allowing you to clamp a straightedge directly on the cut line. There’s no need to measure the offset distance from the blade to the edge of the shoe. Simply raise the ExacTrack guide and steer the saw along the straightedge. The blade will then cut flush against the straightedge and right on the line.
Kreg KWS500 Track Horse
This ain’t your grandfather’s track horse. Or even your father’s. The Kreg KWS500 is a versatile, portable, super-strong work support that’s made of sturdy steel and aluminum. Its four legs easily adjust to six different heights and fold flat for convenient storage and transport. The horizontal aluminum track has a keyhole slot that accepts a Kreg Bench Clamp or sacrificial 2×4 to protect the track when sawing and routing. And it can support an impressive 1,100 pounds.

It has four brightness settings, an adjustable no-slip head strap, and a rear-mount battery pack that holds two lithium-ion batteries. The Harugo 5000 headlamp is ideal when working in the dark, but also for hiking, cycling, fishing, camping, hunting, and jogging.

PortaMate Wood Organizer and Lumber Storage
Floor space is a premium for any DIYer. Scrap wood that they will use some day frequently lurks propped up in garage corners, just waiting for the right vibration or bump so that it can fall on and scratch up the car. The PortaMate gives you six sets of brackets to organize lumber, or you can add your own wooden shelves and store anything you want. It can hold up to 600 pounds. Best of all, the slim profile means it will fit in most garages without taking up the space you need for your car. Great Gifts for DIYers
