CrocoNut Wrenches

Hi Folks,

It's been a slow week for sales but a busy week for work as I continue to battle the onslaught of winter and work on the next tools to get them into the heat treat pipeline. Poltergeists will be on deck for middle of March. In the meantime I'm also dealing with tendonitis in my left hand so that's slowing me down a bit especially for knot tying.

Anyway, I did manage to get some of the new CrocoNut Wrench tools done. They are stonewashed .160 thick CPM S35VN steel and I did not do any stamped ones or anything else special with this batch, they are just simple and sturdy. Open jaw sizes are 1/4-9/16" and closed hex sizes are 1/4-7/16", overall length of the tool is 4 3/8". These will be $65 plus shipping and the link is below:

First Wave is Sold Out, more are coming though. Thank you! :)

Raw Bar G5 Prybabies

Happy Wednesday! :)

Today I have a very small batch of the G5 Prybabies, this time with raw bar finish. I did not make very many of these (about two dozen only) so I'm going to make it one per customer sale in order to give more folks a chance to get one. They are $65 plus shipping and the link is always, thanks so much for your patience and for checking in on my sales, I always appreciate it very much. ;)

Sold Out, thanks!

G5 Prybabies

Howdy Folks,

It's a cold and slightly dreary afternoon here today, good time for a sale. :)

Today I have the first wave of G5 Prybabies done. These are stonewashed S35v and they are similar to the earlier G3 design with a couple of small improvements. For this design I have changed the old grippy thumb scallops along the edge to hex indents which works well with the overall design and provides a unifying effect. I also added about 1/8" of length to the tool by bolstering the thickness on the butt end. This adds strength to the wrench set. Speaking of the wrench set, it remains SAE with sizes ranging from 1/4"-9/16". The bottle opener cut out area wrench is a SAE 7/16". OAL is just over 3 1/8".

2/14/11: I just noticed that I mistakenly put on the insert cards that these are S30v steel, They are in fact S35v steel. Sorry for the mixup.

This is the first wave, a few more remain to finish up tomorrow or Monday. No stamped ones in this batch and there won't be any XLs here either as I would have to revert back to the Original old school pattern for any XLs to happen.

The G5 Prybabies run $60 plus shipping and the link is below:

First wave is sold out, thank you so much! :)

More G10 Lanslides

Hi Folks,

Alrighty then, I finally got the next wave of G10 Lanslides finished up. These things always take longer than I think. :) Anyway, I've got a bunch of them and there are still more to do up once my fingers recover. I was warned that the G10 is very abrasive and at first it doesn't seem too bad but once you debur a few dozen of these it starts to eat your finger tips up and dull down the tools. Tough stuff. ;)

Second wave is sold out, thank you!

Olive G10 Lanslides

Howdy All,

Just got done digging out from yet another heavy wet blast of white stuff. Enough already! :(

I have some of the translucent olive G10 Lanslides done today. These are in the five flute pattern, the color is very light and hard to photograph. They are $15 plus the shipping and the link is below:

Sale is suspended due to paypal problems. I'll get more of these done (since I'm almost sold out of the first wave anyway) and do another sale either this evening or tomorrow morning.

Titanium Mini Brewdrivers

Hi Folks,

Sorry for the long spell of inactivity but there's more going on than you may think.... We've been hammered here in the Northeast by several large snowstorms in the past week (as has much of the country) but it seems like we've been hit particularly hard lately. This relentless winter is now shaping up to be the worst in terms of snowfall in many many years. Indeed, it's starting to become a challenge just finding places to put it all.

Anyway, things have been progressing rather slowly these past couple of weeks but I am making good headway at last. G5 Prybabies are at heat treat right now and should be back in about a week or so. The new CrocoNut wrench tool is also at heat treat and those should be back in about two weeks. The olive G10 Lanslides are close to done and I'll be tying lanyards for those and the white teflon ones as well this weekend probably. Additional projects that are underway include a new Lanslide design which will be incoporated into a brand new concept- the LifeLine Gear Leash. Also underway are more Poltergeists, a new Prytool design called E115 and also some Mini Poltergeists. There are several other things under development too which will make for some interesting times ahead this winter and into the Spring. No news on the Dace right now but I'll be moving forward on those pretty soon and also finishing up the last couple dozen of the Snakebites. It's going to get busier and busier this month.

Today I have some titanium Mini Brewdrivers done. These are anodized blue but I also have some plain ones available and I'll do another sale with those if I still have some left after today's sale:

The Mini Brewdriver is a simple keyfob tool, turned from solid 1/2" bars of titanium and they measure 2 inches long. They feature a bottle opener and screwdriver/prytip on a diamond knurled shaft with a flat for my name stamp. The bottle opener is a two pry popper meaning it takes two shots to get the cap off but it does work fine. The screwdriver tip is the standard 1/4 wide size. A large lug style end with 1/4" hole makes getting the tool on and off the keys a very simple proposition. These run $65 plus shipping and the purchase link is below:

Blue ones are all gone, thank you!
