Hauling sheet goods can be a challenging chore. They’re big, heavy, and if the wind is blowing they can catch it like a sail. For as long as there has been drywall and plywood people have struggled to move it. JHandles are designed to carry sheet goods by creating a handle on these objects that are not made with one. The design of JHandles allows it to lock onto an object and hold it securely and evenly balanced while you carry it. A two-man team can easily maneuver the material and maintain balance while each carrying with only one hand. Workers are also able to easily move around obstacles and have a clear view of the area around them.

Irwin’s Multi-Material Drill Bits
Toting around different types of bits for different drilling tasks can be cumbersome, so every professional tradesman needs a single bit that’s capable of drilling through multiple types of materials. Irwin Tools’s new full line of multi-material drill bits will drill through just about any type of material, including brick, block, tile, metal, wood, laminate, plastic and marble — they’ll even drill through multiple materials at the same time. They have a unique diamond-ground, four-facet carbide tip with super-sharp cutting edges that guarantee centered starts with no walking, fast drilling and excellent hole quality. The versatile bits have a double-milled flute that removes dust and debris quickly and efficiently, which not only increases drilling speed (with no clogging), but results in longer bit life as well. These bits are built tough for hammer drilling, but recommended for use in rotary mode. Visit www.irwintools.com.
