Recently I was sent the OddJob™, an all-in-one DIY Multitool by Crescent®. The timing couldn’t have been better since I’ve been setting up my new barn studio over the past few months and really need the extra help. Normally I would go digging for my husband’s tools when I needed to fix, repair, hang or build things. But having this awesome lightweight tool has really saved the day! When I first opened the package my husband stated, “Wow! It’s from Crescent! They make really good tools!” (Take it from a firefighter.) This bright red baby is now the number one hardware tool in my studio.As you can see it’s a hammer- for driving small nails and tacks with the steel head side- but the other side is a soft mallet! The bottom of the handle is a ratchet screw driver with forward and reverse functions for tightening and loosening. The OddJob™ comes with a Phillips head screw driver in place, and there are six additional drill bits tucked into a removable compartment in the handle. I collect vintage standard screws that I find at garage sales or flea markets for the purpose of repairing vintage pieces or adding antique embellishments to things. Standard screw driver heads are getting harder to find, so I was really glad to see that one was included.
The OddJob™ also comes with a flexible screwdriver attachment. This allows you to reach awkward areas like with these plate racks that I hung for storing craft supplies in my studio. I could get a long screwdriver to fit through those wires, but not one with a ratchet mechanism that makes turning so much easier.
