Another interesting Kickstarter for a homemade tool (don't worry, I have plenty more bookmarked ).
This one is a LED illuminated rubber grip for lineman's pliers. Invented by a retired Navy electrician. On Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...02/knightgrip/ . More: Knightgrip.com.
This one just launched a few days ago. 27 days remaining. $45 pledged of $30,000 goal. No idea what's up with the "guitar lesson" award for pledges. I'm going to email the inventor and maybe we can get some details.
Gimmick or gold?
