Ragman!

Hiya Folks,

Gosh, another gray and gloomy day here in western MA. It's a weird spring for sure...

Well, whatever else you might say about me, I have not been resting on my laurels lately! This is what happens when I start dozens of projects in the spring, they all have to be finished. And some of these things have been sitting since last year even, so I'm making a big push to try to get some things done. Then who knows, maybe I'll take some days off when the hot weather gets here...IF the hot weather ever gets here that is...

Today I have the first wave of titanium Ragmen completed. These are all anodized and I have some left over which I will put up later this week in plain finish. I have to give kudos to Tom Krein as he is the first one I saw do a printed shop rag which I thought was a terrific idea. My understanding is a few other makers have put out their own printed rags.... I wanted to do something printed as well, not necessarily a rag but something or other...recently, while wrenching on my antique Harley and musing on a recent sale, it suddenly came to me. I will not reveal what is on the rag, you'll have to see it for yourselves, but I thought it was kinda funny and I think diehard Toolbookers will appreciate it. ;)

Obviously, this tool can be used like the first two tools in the series, the Hangmen. Use it on your keys, or slip it on a belt loop and hang your shop rag, polishing cloth or whatever you want through the large hole. 

Anyhow, the Ragmen are anodized in a wide variety of solid colors and color combos, my usual bright finishes. I'll send you whatever I send you but they are all lovely I think. Ragmen will run $60 plus shipping and the link is below. Hope your week is starting off great!


Anodized ones are gone for today, plains coming up in a few days. Thank you VERY much everyone! :)
