Fast Cutter. Cement-based tile backers are optimistically labeled "score and snap," but skinny and curving cuts can be difficult. That's where Malco's TSF2 backerboard shear comes in. It chucks into any standard corded or cordless drill to make cutting 1/2-inch backerboard fast, easy, and nearly dust-free. You can use it for 5/16-inch siding, too. The shear sells for $128; replacement blades go for $43. Malco Products, 800/328-3530.
