More Green Rings!

Hi Everyone,

I got a few more ti RingTools done. These are the same size 12 as the previous ones and are all anodized green.

Green ti rings are gone for now, thank you!




****Progress Update*****

I am working feverishly on a bunch of other projects right now. Ti Atwrenches are at the tumblers right now and should be back by end of next week if all goes well.

Ti Rulers are still delayed. I had some problems with the cutting and have to broach all the holes by hand. I also still need more CAD work done for the metric scale so don't expect these anytime soon. These were supposed to be a quick and easy project and they have turned into a giant, slow, pain in the butt. Oh well...

Other upcoming projects include the MicroSpud, details of which are coming soon. Also coming is the Shiner, a keychain tool. And I have a small batch of some simple non functional decorative titanium Keyfobs. I also have finally started a small keychain knife called the Fixer which has been planned since last summer and is now in the first stages of work. Huge batch of those are coming. February and March will be very busy!

More lotteries coming up with a few more blades so please stay tuned for those as well..

You can't give us a teaser and then say details are forthcoming. That really is stressful.

Darn you and wonderful tools!

Thanks Peter

Thanks for the update (and teasers)! :D

DB said...

Too many teasers! Where's the pictures? We need pictures, or design schematics....heck, give us a sketch on a cocktail napkin! Don't leave us hanging! :D

Hello Peter. I am a huge fan of your work and I am patiently waiting for my chance to have one of your remarkable Atwrenches or Prybabys. Luckily you just happen to give some info on some so thank you so much.

I've been missing a lot of these lotteries lately - hope to catch some of the upcoming blade lotteries Peter. The Fixer sounds like a winner too. Thanks Peter.

Micro Spud? Shiner? We need information. Where's the waterboard? LOL
So? Cardinals or Steelers? What say you Mr. Atwood?

Peter Atwood said...

Hehe, how could a knife and tool maker root for anyone but the Steelers? :p

I want to snap some pics but have not gotten that far. Give me a day or two though and I'll get something up.

Looking forward to it. Thanks Peter :D

Let me guess. Microspud = Keychain potato peeler?

Peter Atwood said...

More like potato turner...;P

phoenix stu said...

hmmmm. Can't wait

It's a shame that I'm actually looking forward to Springsteen at the half rather than the game.
But I like the dogs, so I took Az.
Now 5/1 on a Clarence Clemmons Sax solo what do you think Yes or No?

LOL

Peter Atwood said...

Well, I was gonna take a picture of the MicroSpud this morning but I can't find the damn thing. I just turned the house upside down and I have absolutely no idea where it is...pissing me off.

Well, Petter, it is a good attempt how to increase the steam pressure in the boiler of our expectations ;-)

Peter Atwood said...

Hehe, I will find it! If I have to tear the entire house apart... I know it is here somewhere and did not leave the house. Maybe it fell into my easy chair.

Matt said...

Just wanted to let everyone know that there is a "fixer" drawing on the first post in the museum link on Peter's website/links list.

It's a really neat design!

Thanks Peter, got my Ring Thing today. Any suggestions for making sure the bit stays in its housing? The rubber loop seems like it has a bit too much give to it and the bit might sneak out if I have my keyring in my pocket.

Thanks!
