Many dads love new tools for Christmas, but unless he really needs another hammer or set of screwdrivers, it’s time to start thinking outside the box! DIY dads of all skill levels will love the Kreg K4 Pocket Hole Jig for creating functional items from scratch. The system comes with the Kreg Jig K4, a stepped drill bit, a 6″ square driver, pocket hole plug set, and a screw starter kit.
Kreg makes woodworking less intimidating, and this jig allows you to drill pocket holes with ease and precision. Kreg says that it makes joints as easy as “Drill. Drive. Done!” The included owner’s manual makes set up easy and securing the jig to your work bench is a cinch using screws or clamps. The 3-hole drill guide makes for perfectly placed holes in a variety of widths and thicknesses – from 0.5″ to 1.5″. The removable drill guide makes home repairs easy as well.
Something that makes the Kreg K4 stand out is the optimized drilling angle, minimizing the size of the pocket hole. The compact pocket hole that results is less than 1.5″!
If your man’s hobby is woodworking, you have inevitably noticed that he probably has an addiction to collecting clamps. Our own Daily Dad’s actually swear that “No handyman can ever (EVER!) have too many clamps.” Kreg Tool Company manufactures the best clamps on the market, and their newest Automaxx line is top notch.
The Automaxx Clamp Bench System has a 3″ reach Automaxx Bench Klamp and a large 1/4″ x 10″ x 10″ powder-coated steel plate that is bound to make working in any workshop or job site easier and more enjoyable. The steel plate in this system is move-able, so he can pick it up and slide it along his project easily. But, it features the same, amazingly powerful locking capability – while also being versatile.
If he has a workshop with a table, he will love this Clamp Track Kit from Kreg, which will enable him to incorporate the versatile clamping capability of the popular Kreg Klamp Table into any workbench – whether it’s a new or existing bench. These Clamp Tracks come equipped with longer versions of the same anodized aluminum Trak used in the Klamp Table, plus hardware and instructions that show you how to incorporate them into your existing workbench. They can be surface mounted or bolted into the bench’s surface, or can be flush mounted by bolting them to a surface, and then adding a thick layered material.
The Automaxx 6″ Face Clamp is a workhorse in the clamp world. The easy to regulate clamping force is activated by the simple thumbscrew, and the auto-adjust technology automatically adjusts to the thickness desired. The padded grips prevent hand fatigue, and these clamps are also compatible with the Kreg Jig.
- Removable drill guide for bench top and portable use
- 3-hole drill guide for pocket holes
- Large clamping recess to secure your jig
- Wood-chip relief holes keep the drill bit clear of excess wood chips
- Steel plate can move from plate to plate
- Great for work in the shop or at the job site
- System includes 3″ (76mm) reach Automaxx Bench Klamp and a large 1/4″ x 10″ x 10″ (6mm x 254mm x 254mm) powder-coated steel plate
- Can be mounted two ways: Surface Mount or Flush Mount
- Accepts all Kreg Bench Clamps
- Includes 27″ Trak and 45″ Trak
- Designed to fit benches 30″ x 48″ and larger
- Compatible with 20″ x 44″ Kreg Universal Bench
- Accepts Automaxx Bench Clamps and standard Bench Clamps
- Each Trak measures 21/4″ (57mm) wide by 0.695″ (17mm) thick

Unfortunately, sending Dad to get a massage on a daily basis is pretty much out of the question, but just because we can’t send him to go get his knots and tense muscles stretched out doesn’t mean they will disappear. Fortunately, RAD Roller has developed a line of mobility products designed by experts to closely replicate the touch of a trained massage therapist. What could be better than having the relief of massage in your own home everyday?
With the array of different mobility products offered by RAD, it can be tough to decide which point release, massage, or muscle flushing tool is right for you. Luckily, with the All In One Kit you don’t have to decide!
The RAD All In One Kit is the perfect combination on mobility tools, with the RAD Roller, RAD Rounds, RAD Rod, RAD Helix, and RAD Block. Combined, they come together and cover all the bases: Trigger point release, spinal alignment, and relaxing massage.
The RAD Roller is designed to be the most functional massage and pressure release tool ever designed. It is as compact as it is easy to use, meaning you can use it not only anywhere on yourself but anywhere you go. The RAD rounds provide twice the relief with firm density that busts up tension in sensitive spots like the neck, feet and hands. Choose from one of the two pressure-seeking sizes that comfortably fit where other tools cant. With their flawless design you can feel the tension release from your very first use.
You can pair The RAD Roller and Rounds with the RAD Block for isolated pressure in hard-to-reach spots like the shoulders, pecs, and abductors. You can also use the block for easy storage to keep all your RAD products in the same place for easy travel.
The RAD Helix and the RAD Rod are designed for use together or on their own; you can combine the two to make a rolling pin style tool. Expertly designed to help relieve soft tissues of built-up waste and toxins, you won’t be able to find a better pair for the job.

RAD was specifically inspired by human movement, and people of all walks of life can use these tools for relief in nearly every muscle of the body. They strive to provide products that help everybody from the busy Dad who spends the day sitting at a desk to the professional athlete.
For the dad who loves fitness, he will love Mark Bells Slingshot gear. These are tools that should be in every gym goer’s bag. If you were to ask around any competitive fitness circle or any fitness professional, Mark Bells name is one they know. The Slingshot line is a variety of products for men and women to help deal with the aches and pains faced from everyday wear and tear in the gym. His line of tools are sure to help keep you lifting to your max potential, pain free.
The first tool pictured here, Mark Bells Hip Circle, is one that absolutely should be used by any dad who resistance trains legs. We all love to squat and develop nice legs, but one thing often over looked is the hips. One of the most common issues amongst lifters is weak, tight, inflexible hips. This is a problem – especially with lots of leg training. It doesnt take much to strain a hip flexor or hurt a knee because the hips arent doing their part. Enter the Hip Circle. The Hip Circle is the perfect tool to warm up with before leg day and get your hips activating the way they should. It can also be used during squatting to help teach you to drive your knees out. This is one of the products in the fitness world you just wont be disappointed with.
The next gem in Mark Bells line are his Slingshot 2.0 Knee Sleeves. The reality of it is, heavy squats, leg pressing, leg extensions, leg curls, and anything of the sort can be tough on the knees. Keeping the knee stable is a critical component of attempting any sort of heavy weight with these movements. These were designed to do just that. Its a thick sleeve, designed to give mild compression and warmth to your knees without irritating the skin. One of the major complaints about knee sleeves is skin irritation that occurs with sweating and rubbing. With these sleeves and the material they are made out of, its a non-issue. These sleeves are being used by IPF and Crossfit professionals around the world. They were built to take the everyday use and abuse.
Perfect workout accessory gift for every fitness lover and level.
