    Summer is almost over, be prepared! 

    With the summer season coming to an end, the hot weather will soon be waning. I stepped out of the house the other day and it just dawned on me how soon the sun was setting. Fortunately for me, I’m not a fan of the heat and I am a huge fan of autumn!  Maybe its a little early to be thinking about carving jack-o-lanterns but I’m excited nonetheless!

    Pretty soon I will be dressed in a hoodie, raking leaves and enjoying a pumpkin spice latte…

    Anyhow. Thats not all this is about. I figure that there are a few things in our store that are useful when the fall season rolls around. This gives me an excuse to feature them!

    Without further ado….

    Our  30″ x 30 Tine Yard Rake:

    Return of the....Yard and Leaf Rake!

    I had to do it. Had to! What else are you going to use to pick up all the leaves from your lawn? You can’t just keep mowing them! If you leave them your grass will turn brown!

    This is a nice rake. 30×30 is pretty massive so this will cut your fall yardwork in half. Its got a 48″ handle and soft pliable tines so it won’t tear up your grass. Its also only 10.99. Thats a pretty good deal if you ask me. OK! On to the next item.

    One thing that I LOVE about fall is a good bonfire. Theres nothing better than sitting around a roaring fire on a chilly night, drinking beers and roasting marshmallows! You can tell I really get into this.

    In order to have a bonfire you’re going to need some firewood. Thats where we come in. First and foremost…

    To cut wood

    Hack Saw

    A bowsaw!

    The bow saw is the easiest way to cut wood if you don’t have a chainsaw. Fear its unrivaled cutting power! Remember to keep your blades sharp and keep your  bow saw in a dry place when storing. If n0t it will get all dull and rusty. That’s no good.

    The other thing that could come in handy is…

    Use this to carry heavy logs! or Yard bags! Or both!

    Well. I suppose I should go receive our shipment. But I’ll be back, and until fall is over, you’re going to hear about it!

    As we hit midweek on this rainy dreary Wednesday, I have a chance to think about what’s all going on at ToolPlanet. I have just realized how busy we have been here in the last couple months, implementing a lot of new things into the site and the business. We have quite a bit on our plate!

    First of all, Kara has been adding a massive number of new items to our store. We are roughly doubling the amount of items we carry. A huge number of these additional items are automotive tools. This huge amount of new items will hopefully be a boon to our business and give our customers a wider range of items to choose from. This is kind of a big project for us so we’re hoping it pays off!

    Next up, Tom and I have been working hard on optimizing our site for better usability and traffic. This ties into the new items we will be carrying as well. We are working to better categorize our products and make our store easier to navigate for our customers.

    Lastly, everyone has been working to fix any errors we may have on our site. We have just nailed down 170 or so missing pictures but we plan on doing a more in-depth search for errors after we finish with our new stock.

    These projects are taking up most of our time lately but I think that they will make a huge improvement to our site.

    Stay with us!

    More Than Just a Tool Supplier 

    One should always keep in mind that there’s always more than meets the eye, especially when it comes to shopping around for the perfect addition to your home. Although Tool Planet offers various tools that pertain to “do it yourself” projects, automotive service, metal working, and construction equipment, we also offer several items that improve the functions, entertainment, and décor of a home. Some consumers would probably never think to glance at our products when searching for the perfect Tiki Bar, pet hutch, cooking supplies, or clocks. At Tool Planet, We are committed to being your one-stop supplier of high quality tools and home and garden supplies at reasonable prices.

    I’ve met plenty of DIYers and Contractors who renovated their own homes and love to flaunt to others the beauty of their updated kitchen, the stunning layout of the master bathroom, and the extensive amount of storage space added to the living room. Now – it’s time to decorate your humble abode, and Tool Planet can also assist you with that.

    While showing off the home to friends, neighbors, family, or even clients, keep them entertained with the Sportsman Series Bamboo Tiki Bar and Stool Set. This handcrafted Bamboo Bar Set is made to look like an authentic island tiki bar, so it will deliver you the same bliss and relaxation that a tropical paradise would. Handcrafted from bamboo construction, the tiki bar is perfect for indoor and outdoor use. The two bar stools stand at 30 inches (76.2 cm.) Also, there is a hanging glass rack to equip your tiki bar with glasses for everybody. Bottoms up!

    Although an updated kitchen with an attractive appearance is important, the functions of a kitchen should still be applicable. That is why Tool Planet carries various cooking utensils such as the Sportsman 3 Pc Cast Iron Skillet Set, the 9” Jerky Gun, and the 9.5 Quart Cast Iron Roaster Pan.

    Finally, the last thing you want to do is allow your guests to forget that you can Tool Timebuild things! That is why Tool Planet offers the decorative (and totally awesome) Grip On Tools 10″ Saw Blade Wall Clock. That’s right – they took a saw blade and made it into a clock! Now, whenever you look to see what time it is, you know that it’s Tool Time. =)

    Keep in mind that Tool Planet does specialize in diamond cutting and drilling tools for use in concrete, masonry, tile and related construction fields. We also carry a full line of power tools, hand tools, automotive tools and materials handling equipment. But, don’t forget that we also carry items that pertain to the home as well.

    Have a great day.
