Garrett Wade Yankee Push Drill - Buy this tool

I have an original Yankee Drill that I have had since 1964. It still works like a "Bandit", just needs a squirt of 3 in 1 oil to keep it in good working condition. If you don't own one, I highly recommend this tool for your wood shop!

Brass/Copper Table-Top Oil Lamps - Solid Construction

I received two of these beautiful lamps yesterday. My fear before I bought them was that they would have a cheap, tinny feel. Thankfully, I couldn't be more wrong. Weight was substantial and construction was solid. Nice job Garrett Wade!

Hi-Reach 19 ft Pole Saw - Amazing Tool!

I used to use this at my job, as a TelCo Lineman. We were forever using the things. Arborist saws like these can cut wood, even if you're using the saw with one hand to cut small logs for home use. We didn't use this particular saw set, but I can surely attest to the amazing ease of cutting branches down from the ground, right out to a 3 story height! Get some extra poles for those really high branches, and those pesky trees that are just... "a bit too high". It's a real work saver! Mine's going on order right now! I mean, from Garrett and Wade? Who can beat the quality???

Garrett Wade Yankee Push Drill Bits - Yakee pushdrill bits

I have had this yankee push drill for more years than I care to remember. I can sharpen the larger bits but not the small ones. I was glad to find this set of bits. They fit this old drill perfectly. Absolute satisfaction!

Gerstner USA Oak Chests - Red oak veneered Gerstner chest

As you would expect from a Gerstner product, it is well constructed, well finished (mostly furniture grade plywood, veneered in red oak) , part of their "National" product line. For me, the visible plywood edges detracted from the overall appearance. Garrett-Wade service was excellent.

Humane House Mouse Catcher - Humane mouse trap

always peruse your catalog and when I saw the Humane mouse trap and knew that this would [I hope] be the answer to my sister's problem. I ordered them for her and waited for results.. Wow! She was so happy to see the little mouse in the trap, not injured but finishing up his peanut butter. She took the mouse for a long walk and then released him.. She and her husband were amazed at how well these traps are made and also at how many mice they have caught! If one wants something well made and effective, buy it from your company.

Solid Brass 14" Tall Hurricane Lamp - Brass Hurricane Lamp

I've been looking for an oil lamp for some time now. This hurricane lamp fits my style. It has a nostalgic brass look and is essential if I lose electrical power. At first I thought it was to big but after lighting it a few times the size is perfect. Thank you Garrett Wade for one of many essential items I've purchased from your company.

Folding Scissors - Perfect Gifts for the Best of Friends

I have purchased three of these folding scissors to be used as gifts. Now I have ordered two more sets as gifts. The first pair were for my wife, who was totally impressed enough to show them to her friends and never travels without them. I have never been asked to sharpen them and they have never lost the "spring" that keeps them closed and in the really nice leather case. Really precise tools are hard to find. These scissors are in the finest category and will be given to the wife's dearest friends. Perfect gifts and worth every penny. Garrett Wade succeeds again! Thank you! I am a hero for finding the perfect gifts.
