    Dick's Gadget Warehouse & How to Submit Your Viewer Video.

    This week's gadget warehouse video is a real gadget warehouse video. Here's the email we received with the link:

    Hello Dick and Chad.


    After watching your segment about the Worx drill last week, I thought you might be interested in Craftsman's take on the same concept but from over a decade ago.   I bought this drill around 2004 and it was already a clearance/discontinued model then.  And that's too bad as it worked really well.  Any ways, I hope you enjoy the video and sorry for the cats meowing in the background.

    Thanks for all the great episodes.  I look forward to more in the future.

    See your hear this show:



    We’re looking for more Viewer Videos!


    We’d love to include your video in an upcoming Giz Wiz Show, so here's what we're looking for! Your home shot video – 2 to 3 minutes long, in any of the following categories:


    I bought a piece of crap: Did you buy something you ended up hating? We won't get you a refund, but we might be able to give a platform to vent your disappointment. Remember, "family friendly" language applies.


    I invented this! Did you invent something? (Or did a friend or relative invent something.) We can't market it for you, but we can help get the word out. Show us what it is, and how it works. Even if it's a prototype, you can get our (and the audience) reactions. No professional ads please.


    My Gadget Warehouse: Okay, so you don't have a warehouse. It doesn't matter. Just tell us about your favorite old gadget(s). When and where you bought it, and why you're still hanging on to it.


    My Favorite Gadget (favorite old, or favorite new): Show us what it is, tell us what it does and why you love, or loved it! It can be a new gadget you just bought too.


    Post them on YouTube and send us the link! We'll do the rest. (Or possibly nothing, but that's unlikely.) Remember, videos should be just 2 to 3 minutes long! Low production value is fine, but we should be able to hear you and see you! If we select and show your video on The Giz Wiz you’ll a tiny amount of fame (hopefully), an autographed MAD magazine and a 35-year-old Alfred E. Neuman picture. So that's one more (so-so) reason to send in your video!

    IMPORTANT: We'll just shower you with praise for your video if you live outside the US or Canada since we can't afford to send stuff outside of those two places. (Thanks for understanding.)

    Email from: steph heroux


    Hi, Guys i was listening episode 1617 and heard you talk about the laser bond, and wanted to share my experience with a similar product.


    a few months ago i bought this on Wish for 5$ I was reading the manual, I don't know what was going on with me that day! and saw this warning: WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.


    The stench of the product was so horrible, i immediately threw it in the garbage can hoping that the garbage man would not contract cancer.


    I don't know if laser bond uses the same stuff, but my guess would be yes. Oh and by the way Wish sells Laser bond for 3$


    I love you guys, you always put a smile on my face during my long commute.
