I did find out that it is VERY useful!
We have a 4 poster bed upstairs to take apart when we switch guest room and office/craft room – another really handy use: assembling and dis-assembling furniture. I’m not sure if I ever showed you the guest room. This is it currently (pictured below). Nothing special but moving it downstairs means giving it a makeover and that bed needs to be taken apart to be moved downstairs. Ratcheting ReadyWrench to the rescue!
We have plans to build something very similar to this table from Pottery Barn. Guess what’s going to come in handy for tightening those nuts and bolts?
Here’s a little Black & Decker Ratcheting ReadyWrench bio:
- Color-coded socket sizes
- Includes 16 of the most popular standard (SAE) and metric (MM) socket sizes
- Exclusive ratcheting action
- Built to last
- for easy visibility
- for added convenience and versatility
- with a Lifetime Warranty
- General household assembly (i.e. furniture assembly)
- Common DIY repairs (i.e. brake adjustment on a bike)
- Regular maintenance tasks (i.e. blade change on a lawn mower)
- Advanced automotive jobs (i.e. oil change)
“If the ReadyWrench name sounds familiar, it may be because you used the original ReadyWrench when it debuted last year. After Black & Decker launched the ReadyWrench, we listened to our customers who asked us to give the wrench the ratcheting action they needed to get the job done more quickly and easily.
The new Ratcheting ReadyWrench promises to make your home improvement, remodeling or DIY project a cinch, thanks to the 16 socket sizes contained within this one amazing wrench, now with ratcheting action. Black & Decker designed the wrench’s SureFit Technology with DIYers like you in mind. It’s guaranteed to fit all the most popular standard and metric socket sizes to help you complete your work more efficiently and ultimately save you time.”
What’s up for grabs? A Ratcheting ReadyWrench from Black & Decker! Useful for you, a great addition to your toolbox (or the first item to start your toolbox!) or an awesome favorite gift for that hard-to-buy-for/has-everything DIY’er in your life. You DESERVE one of these and if I had the means to hand them out like business cards or candy, I so would! But for now…

Hi! I just found your site and LOVE it!! My current project has just been completed… a farmhouse dining table that my husband and I modified to fit our kitchen. We have been building furniture for a few months now, and would love to add this great tool to our garage shop! Thanks so much!
Which "next" DIY project should I tell you about? I guess it would be building some new shelves in my foyer storage closet.
And I am a follower of this blog!
I enjoy your blog! I'm trying to make my chicken house look cute and attach a green house to it. It is a work in progress :>
My next (small) DYI project is to build more shelves in a hall closet of ours.
…and I'm a follower of this blog and love it.
We're currently working on a closet organizer in our master bedroom. After patching the walls, today I painted and started painting trim. Tomorrow the hubby starts building!
Congrats on the gobs of followers roeshel!! You already know that I think you are amazing! I am surrently working on repainting my living room….and I would love to win this cool tool!

Love this tool – would have to hide it from my mechanic husband! We have just finished a to-the-studs remodel of a bathroom, and I am going to need to recover a bit before I can take on a new project!
We just finished a serious pantry makeover…..now we're working on a general room by room 'spruce up' since we're pretty much stuck indoors anyway! Thanks for the giveaway!

My husband would looooove to be the lucky winner !!!

Well I don't facebook or twitter, but I did go sign up for the B&D newsletter. How do you confirm that people actually do that btw?
Oh and my current DIY project is (and has been for quite some time) my bathroom reno. But tis getting closer now; I did some sanding when I hopped out of bed this morning. AFter eight months I think I should just jump to the end and pretend I am done. DO you think anyone will notice if in my after pictures it just looks like I am holding up magazine pictures? I'll try to keep my fingers out of the frame and everything.
I bought a cute little dresser two weeks ago. It needs a little repair and I'm trying to decide on a paint color. Can't wait to get working on this project!
