Handyman Club of America

Is anyone a member or has any information about the Handyman Club of America? Is it true about the tool testing program and that you get to keep the tool you test?

I believe there are other threads about this, you may want to do a "search"

I do have a friend in "The Club", it's not exactly like you might think
You don't get any cordless drill drivers to test or anything
But he enjoys the magazine

Those reviews sound typical and accurate
A rather well experienced handy person could find the articles too "beginner" oriented
The "tools" are small pretty much "give-away" items
It's a hard sell on some other stuff

My son joined this once and they gave him the junkiest utility knife you ever saw, LOL. He never bothered testing it and never responded after that, either. A waste of time.

I am a member of Handyman and will not renew.. The tools are basically junk from China, and the magazine isn't much better..

I have no intention of getting involved with them because they caused me to have to do a "reply" all over again. I was merrily typing away and, all of a sudden, DIY.com was gone and here were these guys. By the time I figured out how to get rid of them, my info was gone and I had to start over.
