One of the great things about the International Builders Show and the Remodeling Show are the small guys who have an opportunity to share their inventions with the world and hopefully get picked up for distribution.
Marvin Windows shared one of their favorites this year called the Gutster. James and Wayne Yoson, two contractor brothers from Middlesex, N.J., created the Gutster, a demolition bar that they claim is the best demo tool on the market.
And who are we to argue — especially since the DIY Network named it “Coolest Tool of 2009″?
This is American ingenuity at its best. The brothers simply decided that the old crowbars and pry bars they were using could be improved on, and they proceeded to do just that, creating an entirely new tool. They hand-built 15 prototypes. “When somebody stole mine, I thought I might have something good,” said Wayne with a laugh.
Check out the video below as Chris Grundy from Cool Tools shows you how it’s used and if you want to save some time and energy during your next demo we’ve provided a link to buy it now.
