orient object to face?

I have an object that I want rotated to be aligned to a face of another object. Is there a quick way to do this? I can eye-ball it but I was wondering if there was some quick method I was missing.

I would use HKLocalTools but thanks tbaypaul for pointing that out.

I use Localtools all the time but it just changes the pivot, it can't reorient the object another face AFAIK - thanks for the snaptogether tip. I'll check it out.

edit: wow, that tool is great.
