For all he's done and all he's taught you, you'd think dear old Dad would be honored more than one day out of the year. And if you want to get technical, had he not teamed up with mom on that one long-ago DIY project, you wouldn't be reading this right now. So this Father's Day, pay homage to his tinkering spirit with something he'll use in future acts of glorious creation.
Throughout this guide, you'll find a wide selection of tools from free iPhone apps to a budget-busting hammer drill; an oh-so-convenient cordless glue gun and soldering tool; plus a variety of things to help him amp up his environmentalism, his swing, his gut, and his chances of getting a speeding ticket.
That drill looked like a great idea until I found the $1500 price tag. My dad needed a new drill for Father's day, so I decided to get a cheaper battery operated one.
now THAT's a drill. One tip for those buying a corded drill, always buy one that has the "hammer" option. If you ever have to drill into concrete, you'll wish you had it.
