Engineering practical, economical solutions to everyday problems since 2009!
From our humble beginnings with the Wood Post Puller we have expanded and now operate the sites below. Click the images to open each and learn more.
Wood Post Puller
When our privacy fence started falling down I wanted to repair it myself. After spending four hours digging in the heavy clay soil of central Texas for just one post I started looking for a better way.
The Wood Post Puller method is fundamentally different – it is the only technique that works from the bottom-up to push the post and concrete out of the ground. The spike tool creates a layer of mud around the concrete, letting it easily slide out of the ground with just simple pry bars or shovels for assistance.
Multi Tool Mountain
I’ve been in the outdoors all my life fishing, hunting, hiking and camping. Growing up on a farm everything was DIY and that has carried over to home improvement with my family. Multi tools have been in my pocket or on my belt for most of my life and this site is where I share what I’ve learned.
We share insider information that companies don’t want employees to know. Learn how to level the playing field and come out on top.
Think about things differently
We share our experience troubleshooting and fixing common home issues. Practical solutions that save you time, money, and frustration.
The original, and in our eyes still the best. We’ve migrated most of the content over to dedicated sites for that topic. Anything leftover that doesn’t have a home elsewhere is still here – like our beloved flying crank ghost.
We still use this site for pilot testing new ideas so you never know what we might have in the works.
