Halloween gadgets for carving better jack-o'-lanterns



Here's a new video, demonstrating some cool gadgets with tips for carving your jack-o'-lanterns this Halloween. The tools in the video are from Pumpkin Masters and Dremel. From Pumpkin Masters I used the Pumpkin Carving Kit, the Power Poker & Saw and the Power Scoop. I bought them all online but you can get the Carving Kit and Power Poker Saw at local retail stores. From Dremel I used the 7000-PK Pumpkin Carving Kit. It's basically a battery-operated Dremel with a carving bit and 10 patterns, so if you already have a Dremel you can use that too.

Pumpkin Masters is a great source for carving tips, safety tips and free patterns.

Email photos of your jack-o'-lanterns to [email protected] and I'll put together a photo gallery to share here. Happy carving!
