I bet you didn’t know that March 11 was Worship of Tools Day. I find this really funny. Tool worship has always been considered a guy thing. But many women love their tools just as much as men. I have many power tools that I use for my various projects and working around the house.
I think my favorite tool is my Dremel tool. My kids know that they aren’t even allowed to touch my Dremel tool! When I go to a hardware store, the first thing I do is start looking at tools and I can’t forget to stop by the Dremel tool attachments!
Did you know that the Dremel tool was originally invented by Albert Dremel and that the name of the company is Dremel tools, founded in 1932?
Albert J. Dremel held a wide range of patents, 55 in all . They included everything from electric erasers to the first design of the now standard walk behind rotary lawn mower. He started the company with the electric razor blade sharpener. Before the advent of disposable razors, this tool was a real money saver.
Other inventions of Albert Dremel include the electric shoe polisher, an electric screwdriver, a whole line of power sanders and scroll saws, an electric fish scaler and even a device to keep automatic tabs on a chicken’s egg production.
