Concrete hand tools have improved handles

Stanley has expanded and redesigned its Goldblatt line of concrete hand tools. The company’s magnesium floats, finishing trowels, edgers, and groovers have been redesigned for improved cleanability and function. New magnesium floats include a bevel-end cast magnesium float, an extruded magnesium float, and a round-end extruded magnesium float. The new floats feature a three-position handle which gives the user a variety of positions to grip the tool, allowing for expended reach and the use of two hands. The handle height has been lowered to give the tool a lower center of gravity and improved user control. The durable one-piece composite handle design has a rubber overmolded slipresistant grip. The one-piece handle does not have a screw, so it is easier to clean and does not need tightening. The Stanley Goldblatt line of finishing trowels now have a new, solid, one-piece composite handle that has a rubber overmolded grip. The trowels’ new tang design increases handle strength to 300 pounds and improves the life of the tool. The blade is now attached with electrically fused rustresistant studs to give the blade improved strength. New edgers and groovers also have one-piece, slipresistant handles. The handle-to-blade attachment has been improved to increase the life of the tool around the jobsite. The no-screw handle never needs tightening and is easier to clean. Some models are available with a heavy-duty bronze blade to provide extra durability and crisp, sharp edges. Contact Stanley at 1-800-STANLEY or at
