Board Bender. Trying to straighten and fasten bent deck boards is no fun, especially when you're working with hardwood decking. The Hardwood Wrench makes the job easier, promises its maker. The tool has an anodized aluminum head with a cam lock mechanism and a hardwood handle. Two pins in the head grab the deck joist while you pull the handle to straighten the board. When you let go, the cam holds the wrench in place while you nail. It costs $199. Ipe Clip Fastener Co., 866/427-2547.
