FunnyBones

Hi All,

I have a few FunnyBone wrench tools ready to go. These are stonewashed and there just a few dozen. They are $50 each plus shipping and the link to purchase is here:

Stonewashed are sold out, a few more bead blasted ones will be coming soon. Thank you!

I was going to pass . . . but, too tempting. Adding a Funnybone to the collection! Woo hoo! Already a better start for the week than last week.

Thank you for all your great work!

EDCGeek said...

Wooohooo.... Finally scored one!!!

Patience and persistance does pay off.

Thanks Peter.

krazz said...

Nice...got one....might have been the first.

Mark said...

Got one! Thanks Peter.

Peter,

Thanks again for the opportunity to purchase one of your wonderful creations. An awesome addition to any pocket!

Brian said...

Wow. I guess I just can't go to lunch anymore. Missed another one!

Brendan said...

Snagged my first Atwood piece. Very excited. Thanks Peter.

Omeganot said...

Gone? Hope not!

Matthew said...

Missed it. Dang! I'll have to keep trying.

I don't feel too bad though, the Mini Prybaby® looks really damn good on my keychain.

BRYAN said...

Thanks Peter. Got one for my Dad. Increasing your fan base.

Jason said...

DOH! I walk away for a few minutes and the purchase link is posted and removed. A few dozen tools and only six posts from buyers....could there still be hope for today?

Jeremy said...

Oh crap! Missed em! Hard to buy from a phone. Haha.

Andy said...

Man, I'm getting closer, but cannot seem to time it right!

jwl said...

Metric?

aldolebonze said...

Got one too if it's possible

Peter said...

tsk, up and gone in no time. these tools go faster than concert tickets!

Maybe I'll get lucky on the next round...

Cesar said...

Score #2! I'm hitting 2 for 2. Yeah!

This'll be great for my fixed gear bike. I can now carry something to change a tire, rather than relying on luck to avoid flats.

Indy Fab fan said...

Yep, need more Bike Tools! Metric hex wrenches??

;-D

Peter Atwood said...

Well, I have the next batch of WingNuts underway right now and it is SAE. If I can get them ready to send out to heat treat then I can cut the next batch which will be metrics. The Metric design will have even number metric sizes in the jaws and odd numbers in the body with the largest being 15mm, the common bike axle size.

Cesar said...

Oh yeah! I would love a wingnut. That would be a more perfect fit w/ the axle nut with 15mm. The Funny Bone is off by 1 mm, but usable in a pinch.

peterxyz said...

Peter, is it possible to put me down for two metric wingnuts (the second is for my best friend Steve). I love all of the wrench tools, but in vain unless they're metric!

Cesar said...

Ooooo. A 15 mm socket w/ a tire lever end that could be mounted on my bottle cage... THAT would be cool.

kai said...

For those that continually miss out (such as those of us in completely different time zones) is there any way to preorder? Especially as these upcoming ones are metric...

anomalous said...

what Kai said++

Being in Oz, metric is what I need, but I'm in a different timezone, so always miss out. How about some special preorders for those of us not in the USA?

Easy Wind said...

Peter,
I remember this older picture of the FunnyBone, but where are the stats on the tool. I checked your site and only found the colored Ti ones, nothing in regards to wrench/OAL size etc.
The FunnyBone was the first tool I ever saw of yours, glad I could hook into one today, especially a steel one. The Stonewashed finish is the bomb!

gbh said...

Anomalous, I'm in the same boat as you.
Here in oz we dip out due to time zones 8+(
metric is what I need as well.

Peter Atwood said...

I took it off the site temporarily. Will reinstate.

Mr. Whippy said...

peter,

Is what is the difference between the stonewashed and beadblasted finish? I have a couple of your stone washed tools, so I'm curious.

Peter Atwood said...

Bead blasted are matte gray instead of shiny.

The Heiferman said...

Missed again!

Mark said...

Peter,
I was browsing your website under FAQs you list discontinued items, does that mean we'll never see them again? :(

Peter Atwood said...

Mark, one man cannot possibly continue to make everything on my site. Yes, I have discontinued many many items. Who knows, some of them I could make again but I doubt it. I keep moving forward.

Mark said...

Peter,
Thanks for the reply, I'm looking for a blade that will fit in my coin pocket of my jeans; maybe a Micro Card? Any future for those? I was hoping for a Keykutter which appears to be out of the question... Thanks.

Peter Atwood said...

Old work man, not going to happen...sorry.

Mr. Whippy said...

Any left handed funnybones ;o)

Peter Atwood said...

LOL, yup, they're all lefties. ..or righties, take your pick. :p

"Peter Atwood said:

That's good to hear... because I'm ambidextrous!

Neale said...

We've come full circle for me! This is where I started with Atwood tools. I've had to sell some of them along the way (for roughly what I believe I paid for them) but I could not part with this one!

Keep up the good work!

Neale

krazz said...

Any word on what will be up next....and when?

Peter Atwood said...

Phlegm. That's what's up next I'm afraid. I'm sick...sore throat, cough, slight fever and no energy. However, as soon as I feel a little better I will have a sale.

vegassprky said...

See what happens when your around the relatives!!! ;P** Stay hydrated and take it easy for awhile!!

jodj said...

Is that lefty XL phlegm? LOL

Get better, bro, I need some blasted tools.

Easy Wind said...

Just tied my first Two Strand Matthew Walker Knot form your instructions.
Ha! Thanks for the tip!

Take it easy.

Smiert said...

Take care of yourself, Peter -- hope the crud works its way through quickly.

BRYAN said...

sick sucks. feel better

silver said...

Hi Peter,

Report of arrival of tools to the ranch! Thanks, I hope to see them when we arrive in Hono. U/W in the morning for ~ 1 month with stops in Honolulu and Kwajalein.

Indy Fab fan said...

Funnybone has landed! Thank you. It is a hefty beauty.

Thank you. Hope you are recuperating nicely.

Ryan Kavanagh said...

I just got mine today. Very nice! I don't think this will be the last Atwood i buy! I'd really like a PryBaby also!

David

Easy Wind said...

WHOA! This Funnyone is Stout!
Talk about built to last!!

Dig It!

Daniel said...

Hey Peter, love the FunnyBone man. My first Atwood of many to come...hopefully.

You have a unique talent in engineering these tools, taking them from your concept to production. Thanks for sharing your talent with us!
