A Few MicroSpuds

Hi Folks,

When it rains it pours! :)

I have a few of the CPM 3V MicroSpuds done. These nifty 5 inch mini tools are loosely based on the gigantic old fashioned irons worker's tools. The MicroSpuds feature a bottle opener and 7/16 wrench opening, pry tip with V notch, 1/4 hex opening and tapered tail end used for aligning objects before bolting them together. They are not sharp enough to act as a marlin spike...these have a bright stonewashed finish. They are running $70 each plus the shipping. Link to purchase is here:

Sold Out for now! Thanks folks, I really appreciate it.

now these were what i was waiting for, peter how long is the spike? im hoping this well be handy when i build my fences, lining up my bolt holes and holding my work in place while other holes get drilled, oh and of course open my beers while i work.

DrBruce said...

Thanks Peter... as a user (mostly), I like the size and design of the Spud. I'm looking forward to finding uses for a pocket-size alignment tool, and I really appreciate the step aside from wrenches.

Thanks for the comment about the marlin spike 80)

BTW: what would one of your marlin spikes look like? Here's an example of what my yahoo groups are saying is one of the best if not the best rope handling marlin spikes.

Just curious Peter.

Also, regarding the marlin spike comment. I imagine smaller cord is a no go however, what about paracord?

Thanks

I want one so bad, but I can't spend the money right now.

nhops said...

Not sure if you're keeping score, but I'd love to see a marlinspike too. One sized for paracord would be great!

Any ETA on SuperBugs?

Peter Atwood said...

SuperBugs in about a week.

Rick said...

QVolve said...

Enkidu said...

YAY!

Finally! My first (but surely not last) Atwood!!

Haven't been this happy in a year rofl

Perfect...Thank you Peter!

Logan said...

Yay, my first Atwood as well.. Looking forward to it.

Nathan said...

Can't wait to try this out. I envision it opening a lot of beers this summer.

phoenix stu said...

I dunno. . Maybe I will have a kydex sheath made for it for easy carry.

scottiver said...

Looks like it should be called "the Atwood Shiv". LOL

Logan said...

Yeah Scottiver, I was thinking it might be cool to sharpen a small section of it for general cutting purposes.

souptree said...

Rick, you're aiming too low!!

Peter, any ETA on the Solar Arc II? :-P

Peter Atwood said...

yeah....never! :P

Ben said...

These were so tempting. I decided to only go after Atwoods I absolutely must have though, like those BigShots! More money for my other addictions, lol.

enki said...

Does these come with a sheat?
And how thick are they??

Couldn't find any info on this, I think people would like to know.

DrBruce said...

Thanks Peter... my Spud arrived in today’s mail – fast delivery, as usual. Your wrenches, blades and prytool combinations deserve the high marks awarded by users and collectors, but this 5" marvel gets my vote for most innovative – and likely most useful – step into a new class of one-piece pocket tools. Now to find a simple & elegant lanyard for this critter…

Jerry said...

Got mine, thanks.

A question...is the hex opening undersize on purpose? I can't seem to get a Wiha bit to fit.

Peter Atwood said...

Jerry, must be a burr. I just tested a bunch of them and they are slip through...

Jerry said...

Thanks Peter, just making sure I wasn't missing the obvious :)

I'll touch it up with a safe edge file or stone if the 3V is not too tough.
