The National Hardware Show (NHS) is held each May in Las Vegas and is where the people who run hardware stores, lumberyards, and big box stores go to see and make deals on the latest tools and products. At this year's show I saw a number of interesting and unusual tools that could be useful to tradesmen.

Some of these tools are already out, some about to come out, and the rest may or may not make it into distribution—being brand new products that have yet to find a home in the market.
