Happy Friday AtPeople! :D

It's been a long week... My cold has been lingering, I bought a new vehicle, projects are being worked on, etc, etc, etc. It's all good though.

Anyway, today I have the rest of the S30v FunnyBones. These have a bead blasted finish and are $50 plus shipping.

Sold Out, thanks!

Got one! Thanks Peter - I've been looking forward to a Funny Bones release. ;) I think it will be useful.

2 in one week WOOHOO

Easy Wind said...

Wow, that bead blast looks killer on the FunnyBone.
Dig it!

Roger said...

Awesome, got one! I think I'm addicted, I snagged one of these whilst I'm still waiting for the last one to arrive :D
I just can't get enough of these handy, tactile useful things.

NickNiel said...

Agreed, Roger. I just got my ring a few days ago - had to spring for the Funny Bones too. :)

jeff said...

Cool.. new wheels.. What did you get?

Dang, missed that one! Totally unrelated. For anyone who missed out on a G3 Steel Prybaby a while back, I have one for sale. Only offering on this blog. Got it for a friend who backed out. Refuse to try and gouge people on eBay. Offering it $72 just to cover my costs of insured shipping and paypal.
If interested, email to mike1n@cox.net

I traded my 2003 Dakota which was very much a basic work truck for a Kia Soul. I got the ! model with the sunroof, a feature that I have ALWAYS wanted. What a fun little ride. And the color kills me, Alien Green. :)

It's fairly practical and comes with a ton of neat features for a very reasonable price. Mileage wise it is no Toyota Prius but it will be a lot better than my V6 pickup. I like the lines on it too, kinda reminds me of some kind of crazy Atwood tool. :D

Looks like I was late to the party again! If any other collector who got one is interested in trading for a mini prybaby (xl or original) please let me know. I'd rather not pay the premiums of ebay.

Mark said...

Peter,
Thanks again for the email today, good luck with the new ride! It's always enjoyable to be in something fresh and new.

jt said...

too cool, glad to get in on this, will definitely become part of my keychain EDC. this plus a Termite would be perfect together (if only i had one...). Peter, any chance you'll be releasing some Termites anytime soon?

Pneumothorax said...

Pneumo here again. I didnt think about how to notify that it was gone. I already have 3 interested buyers. Pretty sure they won't all fall through, so until further notice. G3 Prybaby is gone.

Thanks much - now what is my next Pocket Tool? Any comment Peter?

jeff said...

I had never heard of the Kia Soul. Had to look it up. Pretty cool little ride... It does have a lot of features. Sun roof looked pretty cool in the pictures. But aren't you going to miss having a truck? I think I would... :-)

Peter Atwood said...

Yes, but if they were making a truck I wanted to buy I would have bought it. But they aren't. I don't want a 90 foot long bohometh with a turning radius of 550 feet. I don't need an extra cab and four doors.

Every single truck with the exception of the Ford Ranger is now huge. And there were no Rangers on the lots around here to even look at. The base model Tacoma comes with nothing and you can't get any options for it. I wanted four wheel drive, they offer manual only, no automatics in foru wheel drive anymore. I wanted bucket seats instead of the bench, no can do. Everything is geared so that if you want a little bit nicer package suddenly it's 27K. Well screw that noise.

Peter Atwood said...

Can you tell I'm a little pissed about the trucks? :D I've been a truck guy since 1990 but I just can't believe that you no longer can buy a small truck that is nice. That is something that has changed just in the last six years. I would have bought another Dakota since I've had two in a row but I think the new body style is ugly and once again, they have eliminated the regular cab model.

Mahindra is now selling small 4x4 pick-ups in the US. probably pretty cheap, but no idea what their reliability would be.

my wife drives a Kia Sorento and loves it.

jeff said...

Wow... i had no idea that the truck market had changed that much... throw in a pushy salesman and it must have been an adventure looking for a new vehicle... but then I'm still driving my 1997 Ford truck so I haven't really looked in a while... :-)

vegassprky said...

So any hint as to what our working on?!? Those obsessed would like to know, at leased a little tiny hint!

don said...

wow mr atwood, i woulnt have pegged you for a kia man, i was hoping you would be a fan of german engineering. to each their own though.

Peter Atwood said...

LOL, when it comes to cars I'm cheap. The trouble with cars for me is that they aren't small enough to fit in my pocket. ;P

I honestly don't know what is coming next. I'm working on titanium perforated Prybabies right now but it will be a week or a week and half before they are ready. I will see what else I can get to though in the meantime.

eman said...

" I'm working on titanium perforated Prybabies right now..."

I squinted and took a deep breath, and said WOW!

Rock On, Peter!!!!

yowza!

Whoa. My poor little RSS reader couldn't cope with the fact that this blog entry has no title.

codec said...

WOW, Perf Prybabies! Very exciting news. I've always admired the Perforated tools... so pretty.

Hi Peter,

Off at my Hospital Board meeting, and missed this, any left? English or metric dimensions both / either would be appreciated. Been waiting for the chance on this tool. Let me know?
