Tim Allen Designs Signature Tools

May 25, 1999

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ ``Home Improvement″ star Tim Allen has come up with the perfect Father’s Day gift: one of his cordless drills.

All profits from the Tim Allen Signature Tools collection will benefit children’s charities.

Allen, who played Tim ``The Tool Man″ Taylor for eight seasons on ABC, founded his line of signature power and hand tools three years ago as a way to raise money for kids.

``I have always enjoyed do-it-yourself projects,″ Allen said Monday. ``Being in a position to actually help design and bring tools to market is an incredible opportunity. Being able to fund charities as a result is phenomenal.″
