It’s that time of year again. Father’s Day is right around the corner, so here’s a roundup of some interesting new tools that any handy Dad ought to love. They’re listed mostly in order of price, with something for every budget.
Magnetic LED Light (Striker Tools, www.strikerhandtools.com, $7.99): About the size of a golf ball and looking like a miniature naval mine, this little light really is clever. It has a bright, LED light in the center of a tough plastic sphere. The outside of the sphere is studded with 12 powerful rare earth magnets, so you can stick it to anything steel, or you can just set it down on any flat surface. Its design allows you to easily position the light to shine right where you need it, making it ideal for under the sink or under the hood of the car.
