Mini T-Bones

Howdy Folks!

Fall is in full swing finally. After a very slow start we are getting a lot of leaves changing now. The colors are somewhat subdued this year in many places though, due to the ongoing drought. You can really see it driving around too, the ponds and lakes are very low compared to what they usually are. Tough year for the whole region.

Well, I've been scrambling to get some things done and have made great progress over this past week. The steel Gremlins went out to heat treat a couple of days ago. The 12 Point tools have been surface ground and now need grinding so are well underway. I am almost done grinding the krinkle ti TommyKnockers and will have those completed in a couple of days. And many strings have recently been tied for a couple of long overdue bead projects. Lots of goodies on the way! Now if I could just shake this nagging cold which has come on at exactly the wrong time and left me with low energy this week, grrr...

Well, today I have the batch of steel Mini T-Bones done. These are made of 154CM steel with a pleasing sandy textured raw bar finish. They measure in at just shy of 5/32 thick and feature 12 point wrench sizes 7/16, 3/8 and 5/16. More compact than the earlier titanium version, they ride easily on a keychain and are a great little wrench set, key ring T handle and fiddle toy.

The Mini T-Bones will run $50 each plus shipping and there are enough to let folks have multiples if they wish. The link is below. And of course, thanks again for stopping by, as always!

All gone for today, thank you once again everyone!

Peter are you planning a metric version?

Peter Atwood said...

Thanks! I might make a metric version this winter...any ideas for the most popular 3 sizes? 12 or 13 would need to be the biggest...

Richard Pierce II said...

For metric, I would want 10mm for sure. Maybe 8, 10, and 12? Or 10, 12, 14?

8, 10, 12 for sure

#WhoopWhoop got a "Tool." Thanks again Peter, can't wait to get me mitts on this one!

Just read you had a cold... get well soon, Autumn is too mice of a time of year to be under the weather :-)

Really digging the finish on these.
For Metric 8,10 and 13 would be perfect for me, that covers standard M5, M6 and M8 nuts/bolts.

For a metric version 10,12,13 is useful, as is 8,10,12

Hi Peter, these look nifty and useful. I'd go nuts for something metric. How about titanium anodised green and gold for those of us down under? Andy Mason :)
