P13 Metric Prybabies

Howdy Folks,

And a Happy April to everyone! This is my favorite time of year for a variety of reasons and I'm certainly looking forward to the warmer weather and blooming flowers ahead.

Well, it was a tough week this past week. My computer died and ended up in the shop for a few days but luckily is all fixed up for now. But that distracted me and slowed down progress a bit in the shop. Then a problem developed in a machine which I am still working on fixing, but nothing critical, so the show will go on as they say...


Projects are moving forward despite the little glitches. The Wiener Dog tools are well underway and will be finished in a few days. They are the second in the Little Jimmy series and I think you will enjoy them. In other news, I continue to pick away at the Termites and those will be coming in mid April. I'm still working out the final forms, but a really fun little Mini Bermuda Triangle piece is coming as well and I hope to deliver a surprise TWIST to them. And if I ever get my lazy butt in gear and get some cord cut and tied I will have another Lanslide offering. This is what is great about April 4th...even though the Red Sox probably will suck this year at least they provide a little entertainment while I tie bead cords.

Well, today I have the long promised CPM 3v steel Metric P13 Prybabies done. These are my usual .160 thick stock so they provide a decent weight and thickness without being too heavy on the keys. The wrench sizes are my old odd number metric scale, 5-15mm, because these tools were actually cut a year ago and I'm just now finally getting around to finishing them! BTW, I noticed this morning that I incorrectly wrote on the cards that the wrench sizes were 7-15mm but I double checked and they are indeed 5-15mm. At any rate, going forward, when I make metric tools I will only be using the newer all inclusive wrench scales, 7-12 for Minis or 7-14 for full sized tools.

The 3v Metric P13 Prybabies have a light antique patina finish on them. They will run $70 plus shipping and the purchase link is below. The batch is not very big so it's on per customer on them as usual...have a wonderful weekend everyone and hope spring is coming to you soon as well!

These are sold out, thank you so much everyone!

Beautiful work, as usual, Peter!
This one looks like a P10 to me.
Can you explain the differences?
Thanks, in advance :)

How many tools are usually made in a series like this?

Any chance we will see a sinewave edged version of these?
