Good Morning Folks!
It's a cold, rainy and dreary day here but at least it's not snowing. Great day to hunker down with a hot drink and do a sale.
This is a new item that I've been planning for a few months. The BedBugs are a simple bit caddy tool and a good excuse for me to get to play with a variety of materials. Because of the simple design I can use some metals which are a little softer than usual since there is no pry function or cap lifter to get chewed up. So the first wave of these are in warm and lovely bronze, alloy 510 which is a spring tempered bronze. These are already beautiful but will develop a great patina over time. I encourage you to handle these frequently, get them wet, spill stuff on them, rub dirt into them and ding them up because they will just get better and better looking as time goes on. I can't wait to see what they look like in a year or two.
Other BedBugs will be coming over the next weeks and months as well and some of the other materials will include titanium, naval brass and 316 stainless steel so there will be some interesting variations coming. BTW, some of the Atwood Scholars may note that I made a couple of little sample tools last year which I called BedBugs but I decided not to go forward with that design...I didn't want to waste a great name so I thought it would be a perfect fit with this little tool. ;)
I'm on a campaign to save my fingers this winter so I decided that instead of putting all these together I would let you all have some of the fun...hehe. So these will ship with a little bag containing two sets of rubber O-rings, a #1 Philips bit and a small NiteIze S clip and you guys can put them together yourselves. I love these little clips btw and you'll be seeing them again as I have some other tools I want to use them with up the road. Definitely handier than a lanyard for certain things.
The BedBugs will run $45 each plus shipping and I'll put a limit of two per customer on them so hopefully a few more folks will have a chance to pick one up. As always, thank you so much for stopping by and I hope everyone is having a great week so far!
BedBugs are Sold Out for now but I have lots more coming so no worries! Thank you!
