Well the time has come to draw a winner for our fabulous giveaway and announce that most lucky winner! And in fact, the winner has been notified via email and is posted on the giveaway itself, yay! Go see if it's you…
Before I leave you all with my sincere appreciation for your participation in this giveaway I thought I would actually just take a minute to chat with you about the products themselves and Ryobi Nation, totally unsolicited, in other words this isn't part of my sponsorship (I fulfilled that here) and is totally my own personal opinion.
First things first… for those of you who entered the giveaway and completed the entry for registering at Ryobi Nation, you already know what a crazy big community they have going over there, and what some of the benefits to you might be, for sharing your own projects in that forum… but for the rest of you I thought I might let you in on a little fabulous nugget of info here. Each month there is a prize awarded for a winning project ($500 value) and for those of you who build in general and build from my site, you already have a leg up on this since that means you have projects to enter.
So, my point here is that if you are building anything at all it might behoove you to go share it over there and be a contender to win that prize. Nuff said…
Now my second little token of knowledge I would love to impart on you is that the Ryobi One+ 18V Lithium Ion Combo Kit we were giving away here is actually just one drop in the bucket compared to what is available as part of this collection of tools. Now what is so special about them, aside from the obvious 18V Lithium Ion batteries, is that every piece in this collection uses the SAME BATTERY which means that at any given time you can have multiple batteries charged and raring to go for your use. All you need to do is pull one off the multi-battery charger, swap it with your previous battery and you are good to go. So basically, your drill, circular saw, reciprocating saw, flashlight etc all use the same batteries. Do you hear what I'm trying to tell you here? Pretty smarty stuff, ya?
I for one plan to enter my projects there and win me some tools baby! I hope anyway…
