Dial M for Metric

Howdy Everyone,

Lovely sunny week here in the northeast, albeit a little chilly today. We've been spoiled lately with some very mild temperatures but I'm sure that will end very soon. Looks like Thanksgiving will be quite pleasant though this year, unlike last year's huge blizzard where we lost power for a couple of days and ended up having our turkey on the following Saturday.

Well, things are moving right along finally and I'm starting on the finishing phase on several projects. The steel tools that I mentioned earlier this week will start coming on in a couple of days, hopefully I will be able to sneak one more sale in before the holidays start. Probably the big Roid P15s first.

Today I have the Metric Mini P15 Prybabies in Krinkle texture titanium done. The material is nice and hefty measuring in at .195 give or take a few thousandths. Great thickness for a tool this size. The Metric Minis are slightly longer than the SAE P15 Minis in order to fit the new metric wrench set inside, measuring in at just 2.75 inches OAL. The raw bar texture on these is mostly very light, kind of resembles concrete or a slightly porous stone. Just enough there to give them some character and a little extra grip.

As I mentioned, the Metric Minis have an all new 6 wrench set with sizes 7,8,9,10,11 and 12mm! Originally I planned to make the set 7-14mm but that would be for a future full sized Prybaby that has not yet been made. This Mini is a great compact size however and covers much of the range, so I think people will be quite pleased, especially my long suffering and very patient international customers. :)

These are mostly solid colors, rainbows, color fades, etc. Nothing overly fancy, no extra grinds or crazy variations, other than a little creative anodizing, as I know people want them to use. I will maybe make another run in the same material or possibly in steel for 2016, we'll see, haven't quite gotten that far yet. But I do think more of this design or some variation of it is definitely in the cards for next year.

The Metric Mini P15 Prybabies will run $70 plus shipping and the link is below, one per customer on them for now. Thank you for stopping by folks, wishing everyone a terrific and relaxing week ahead!

Metrics are gone for now but a few more are still coming, thank you so much everyone!

Peter - in the listing you stated "but a few more are still coming"; will that be this year? I really want to get one of these to go with my SAE one to complete the set!!!
