Tools in The Colony


Select Local Merchants

  • Rockler Woodworking and Hardware
    Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.

  • Gecko Hardware
    The True Value logo on the exterior of Gecko Hardware doesn't tell the whole story. That's because although the shop sells regular nuts, bolts, and tools, the shop owners' true purpose is to help guide their customers into greener, more sustainable, and self-reliant lifestyles through the sale of eco-friendly products. They specialize in DIY projects to make a house into a homestead, whether it is by building a chicken coop or utilizing rain barrels to feed a healthy organic garden. This means their inventory is stocked with a range of unique items and native plants, alongside classic tools, gardening supplies, and George, the in-store live rooster mascot who is happy to meet guests. The staff shares knowledge on how to put these tools to use, and even hosts classes on topics such as how to garden in the city with raised beds or how to weave your own chair seats. They hope by offering these services they can help reduce our footprint on the world, and thus preserve it for the next generation or whatever alien race wants it the most.

  • Secure Rv
    Secure RV's propane appropriators prolong outdoor excursions and grilling extravaganzas by filling depleted gas tanks to the tippy-top. Like a chewed wad of bubblegum, empty propane bottles?with or without quick-release taps?can be saved and reused, saving grillers from tearful goodbyes at the scrap heap. Exhausted containers can be brought to the emporium, where a gas guru will bestow each receptacle with up to 20 pounds of grade-A fire fuel. Tank folk can also opt to return for one additional refill, or stop in for two extra fills, much to the chagrin of new york strip steaks everywhere.
