If Mom is an outdoor kind of gal we have some easy to use cordless Black and Decker yard tools--along with the standard trimmers and blowers we have a handy cordless cultivator--this little guy will make weeding a snap, or loosen soil to plant new plants-- check it out!!

Help Mom make fast work of cleaning with this handy little srubber-- great for all kinds of jobs-- Use in the bathroom, kitchen, outside or any place you need to scrub something clean!!  I have one of these and it make cleaning the bath tub shower a lot easier!!  More info here!

Another handy cleaning tool is the dust buster-- lots to choose from- get one right for her.  I have the 18vt pivoting hand vac and love it-- I had a dust buster when they first came out-- and it did nothing--this 18vt one is super!!  I use it to do fast pickups in the house, I have brought it to work to clean up messes, and to clean up the sand on the floor mats in my truck.  Check out the selection here--

Order soon to get in time for Mom's special day!

DMT Sharpening Products

Hi Everyone
Just wanted to let everyone know we again have the DMT sharpening products---those of you who have tried the block we have at the store know how great they are--- here is some interesting info about the product from DMT-- read on:

DMT® Diamond Sharpeners are an excellent value because of their durable construction, quality and reputation for providing years of uncompromising service. Unlike conventional oilstones, Japanese waterstones, Arkansas stones and other ceramic sharpeners, DMT® Diamond Whetstones ™ will not break, chip, crack, hollow or groove. Do not be fooled by other diamond sharpeners made in other countries who claim their products are just as good — If you want the best care for your edge, demand DMT®!

FAST- Hardest material, most efficient sharpening abrasive. Available in unique interrupted surface and continuous surface.

EASY- Light pressure produces a sharp edge with just a few strokes.

CLEAN- Use water for lubrication — no oil, smell or mess.

VERSATILE- Hones ALL hard materials: carbide, steel, etc.

DURABLE- Starts flat, stays flat.

DMT® Diamond Whetstones™ are renown for their remarkable sharpening speed. The sharpening speed of DMT® products is a function of the quality of the micronized super abrasive, monocrystalline Diamond.


(a strong, single crystal)

Uniform and precisely sized Monocrystalline Diamond is permanently bonded to nickel on a precision ground plate. Approximately two thirds of each crystal is embedded in the nickel with one third exposed. Because Diamonds are the hardest material known, the working abrasive points (top third of the diamond) will wear very slowly to give a long product life. Extremely pure, DMT® diamond crystals permit a single layer of diamond to perform for years. Competitors claims of multiple layers of diamond only indicate poor quality diamond that quickly wears.


Our competition uses this fragmented compound that breaks apart and wears away easily with use. Sharpeners made with Polycrystalline Diamond will wear out and need replacement.


Your DMT® Diamond Whetstone™ is a precision tool. When used with reasonable care, it will give you many years of faithful service.

1. Break-in period: Initially your diamond stone will seem especially rough. It will smooth over time with gentle stroking without impacting performance. You need not exert extra pressure - let the diamonds do the work!

2. Use only light pressure when sharpening. As a rule, 5-10 minutes on a conventional oilstone is equal to about 20 seconds on DMT® Diamond Sharpeners.

3. Use only water as a lubricant. A lubricant is only necessary to speed the process of clearing swarf (material removed during sharpening) into the recessed dots.

4. After use, rinse and dry your diamond sharpener. Store dry. When further cleaning is needed, use an abrasive cleaner (non-petroleum base) and a scrub brush. Always store your diamond sharpener clean and dry or the metal fines removed during sharpening will rust if left on the surface.
