– Power Tool Drag Racing In Columbus Ohio

As an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases (more).

Back in April we provided some cutting-edge journalism discussing the phenomena of Power Tool Drag Racing, something we think falls into the “don’t try this at home” category. So who wants to build crazy Mad-Max meets Transformers meets Home Depot blade-wheeled speedy gadgets of dismemberment without any payoff? Ok, a lot of people apparently.

Now, who wants to build them with the lure of fame, fortune and free prizes? Maybe just cool free prizes? Well then, check out and their upcoming race in Ohio August 21st. Our sponsor Ohio Power Tool is chipping in with some great tool prizes. Plus, I’ve heard there may be tool-drag-race-groupies there. That’s “drag-race groupies”, not “groupies in drag”, just for clarification. No matter who attends it’s sure to be a good time.

They even have edgy graphics with hands missing digits! A totally great idea as long as 1) No one actually loses a finger at the event, and 2) No surly carpenters or construction workers missing any digits show up and get offended. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for a safe and happy event for everyone (surly tradespeople included).

The Columbus Idea Foundry will be holding several build sessions so you can craft the first power-tool to ever break the sound barrier. Full details at

About Marc Lyman

Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine! For his complete profile, please visit our About page. Really, it's worth it.
