Any body run accross any new products on the market that are particularly interesting, or that make your job a lot easier? Either tools or materials that have either just hit the market or that you just found out about?

Links to manufacturers web info would be helpful.

Thanks

Arlington fitting seems to be bringing out quite an assortment of new products. I like the new inside the wall box for WP receptacles.

Yeah. A couple weeks ago at the Orange store I saw southwire has a romex spooler. Looks a lot like a cord reel ex. the 2 sides thread together. Spin the one side off, drop a 250' coil on, spin on, and slide a pipe through the center. Even works on the floor w/ a long enough (3') pipe (won't tip over). $10.

Hard to beat Carlon's romex spooler. Works great for MC too. You can use it sitting on it's floor stand or hook it on a 2x4 stud.
