The best...innovative new tools

A hammer with a built-in magnetic nail starter, a pocket-size rescue tool, and more

DeWalt MIG Welded Framing Hammer
This 15-ounce hammer provides as much power as a 32-ouncer but at a third the cost of the titanium hammers it mimics. With the built-in, magnetic nail starter, driving in nail after nail is “a cinch.”

Channellock 87 Rescue Tool
Firefighters favor a slightly bigger version of this pocket-size hero’s tool. It includes a wedge for opening doors and windows and a slot for shutting off gas valves.

Striker Light Mine Pro
The 11 magnets on this baseball-size LED work light mean “you can easily attach it anywhere for hands-free illumination.” It offers a range of settings and even a red night-vision light.

Wallboarder’s Buddy
Cutting drywall is usually a “slow, multistep process.” This tool combines a T-square and a sliding blade, so every sheet can be scored and cut with maximum efficiency.

Worx JawSaw
The 4-inch-wide jaw of this innovative tool locks onto a branch as a small, hidden chain-saw blade rips through it. That makes this backyard helper “a terror for wood but safe for the operator.”
