It's known simply as STAFDA, but the annual Specialty Tools and Fasteners Distributors Association show is the hottest ticket to a world of new tools and related product introductions for toolmakers, distributors, and in the end, tool users like you. As always, Tools of the Trade editors will be right in the middle of this must-see, pros-only exhibition, checking out the newest tools, technologies, and features as manufacturers prepare them for the market over the coming months.

The new products shown here are just a sampling of what companies have in store for this year and, of course, we're already scheduling our hands-on testing for many of these models. But it's welcome proof that even during tough economic times, tool companies stay committed to innovation and breakthrough technologies that can help contractors and their crews solve the jobsite challenges they face every day with their work. Enjoy this sneak peek!
