In early November I went to Orlando, Florida, for the most important tool event of the year, the annual STAFDA convention, a members-only show where the tool and fastener manufacturers go to unveil new products. It's always a great show, and this year there were plenty of new tools you'll want to know about.

View a slideshow of 10 of the most interesting and unusual tools from the 2012 STAFDA convention. This is only a quick first look. Many of these tools are not yet available; when they are, we'll send them out to the jobsite for hands-on testing and report back to you on how they do.
