The STAFDA (Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distribution Association) show is held each November and is where the people who run supply houses for construction and industry go to see and make deals on the latest tools and products. At this year’s show I saw a large number of tools that could be useful to tradesmen.

Some of these tools are already out, others are about to come out, and some will be coming out well into 2015. A few of the tools I saw were prototypes that may or may not make it into production. When you watch the slideshow be sure to check out the captions, as many contain links to detailed stories about the tools.
