(Used) Tool Time

Your spouse may suspect that every home-improvement project is a pretext for buying a new tool. To soften the financial blow, try the Web for secondhand tools.

Here are a few helpful sites:


A leader in the sale of electrical and automotive tools, with a classified section on used tools.


Internet specials and factory- reconditioned tools.


An inventory of 23,000 hand, power, and stationary tools.


A retail chain specializing in used tools - check the site

for locations.
