MetWrench

Hi folks,

I have half the batch of MetWrenches done and ready to go. These are 5/32" thick S30v steel and feature Metric wrench sizes 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15mm. Also a heavy duty prytip/screwdriver and a bottle opener with distinctive M shape to denote that it is a Metric tool. There are no lefties, no titanium pieces, no stamped pieces and no glow dots on any of these. Pretty much a straight ahead batch this time.

Metwrenches are $60 each plus shipping. Thanks for taking time to stop by and hope your holidays are pleasant so far.

I like the M, that's a nice touch.

Joe said...

Awesome, got a regular as my first Atwood piece and now a metric. Can't wait to get it.

Man! It's always tempting to pick up whatever's being offered when I see a for sale link that's still active...I'm going to practice some self-restraint this time and let the Metric users nab 'em...great looking tool, by the way!

The M looks great! Thanks Peter!

Peter Atwood said...

Thanks!

Hey Wrightbrain, is that a lensbaby fisheye or a Peleng maybe?

Cesar said...

Score one for the fixie/singlespeeder here!!!

Scott said...

I have finally been able to purchase an Atwood tool! Thanks to everyone that practiced restraint. Thanks to Peter for posting the sale a little later in the day so us west coast folks could snap something up!

Leviatan said...

Finally able to get one of your tools!

Anyway... only odd sizes? Even ones are more used.

Scott said...

yes that M is a nice touch!

Once again...a Great Surprise...

Very nice, clever, and distinctivly attractive tool!!

For those of you who have been asking for Metric versions of tools, this is the chance to get a cute one!!

Matt... said...

Looks great. Any chance a standard hex bit will fit well enough to be functional in any of the wrench openings?

Brian said...

Yahoo! Finally! And it's the perfect tool for my bicycle tool pack.

Peter,

It's a lomo fisheye. 35mm plastic camera with only a fisheye lens affixed. Fun stuff.

Cesar,

Fixie rider here also, congratz on your catch!

vegassprky said...

Peter really like the M cut out for the opener!!!! But will have to pass on this one(unemployed) and am waiting for the ABC!!! Again nice work!! Gary :>)

Mike said...

DOH! Checked before I got in the shower, and they were announced and gone by the time I got back to the computer.

Easy Wind said...

in regards to Leviathan's comment: Do most bikes use the even size?
anyone know?

Dave said...

This will be my second tool :)
It'll come in handy on the truck or bikes (all metric).

joines said...

The M is brilliant. Thank you!

Indy Fab fan said...

Congrats to all . . . looks like another Atwood Beauty.

Mark said...

Peter,
Not sure what is nicer, the actual tool or the photograph. You can quit your day and become a photographer for sure! Nice work as usual, how's the Tactical ornaments coming along? :)

MetalMork said...

Aaaargh! A metric tool... and I missed it! :((((

Brian O said...

I'd like one...

Chris said...

Wow, been waiting for a metric :)

dangerous said...

where's the link I've been waiting for this!!!

Leviatan said...

Easy Wind, the machinery we use at work usually has even sizes, and I've checked my bike and most of the HEX heads are 8 and 10mm. But there are at least 2 ones of 9mm.

Anyway, most of the screws in the bike are female HEX.

Regarding to Matt, who asks about a size for a standard hex tip... Im afraid that it is 1/4" (6,37mm) so 5mm won't fit and 7mm will slip damaging both the tip and the wrench.

45Ronin said...

I'll take one. Thanks Peter.

tjh said...

I'd like one too.

LittleBoyLost said...

I'd love to have one of these, but where is the link?

David said...

I've been checking your site daily for months now; at last you have more metric tools, but there's no link; how do I buy one please?

Peter Atwood said...

I took the link down for today because I'm still trying to get the orders done that I received this afternoon. I will have more tomorrow.

Thanks,

Peter

gil in indy said...

whatever happened to the Wingnuts?

Peter Atwood said...

They are still on the workbench. I have a bit of work left to do on them but at this point they will not be ready until after the New Year.

Daryl said...

Wow, I got one at last! Seriously thought I was seeing things when the link was actually there instead of "Sorry..."
Almost hesitated, almost....
