Stamped Wroid SpinWrenches!

Howdy all,

Hope your Thanksgiving weekend was terrific! Mine was great and included several delicious turkey dinners...

Well as usual I am way behind on my many projects. Ever the optimist, I always think I'm making great progress only to be reminded when I take actual stock of said progress that a tremendous amount of work still remains. There are never enough hours in the day to get to it all either it seems...I'm not too worried however as many of the largest batches of items are either done or close to it. There will no doubt be plenty to keep me busy into the New Year as well. I'm going to try to ramp up the sales between now and the rest of the year though so we'll see how it all goes.

Well today I have a very cool new steel tool for you. These CPM 154 Wroid thickness SpinWrenches feature a 1/2 inch 12 Point wrench, 1/4" hex opening, extra leverage pry/screwdriver tip, 5/16 open wrench which doubles as a cap lifter and a center 3/8" pivot opening which is reamed to accept the spin cores from MD Engineering.  They are 3.25 inches long, weigh in at a whopping 37 grams and are .200 inches thick, so bruisers indeed. The weight is distributed towards the two ends so, while not precisely balanced, they are the closest of all my tools so far and they do spin pretty well.

The SpinWrenches feel fairly hefty in the hand and will actually spin easily even without a spin core if held lightly between thumb and forefinger tips. In profile they remind me a little of the older Hatchling tools but are much chunkier overall. Perhaps they are growing up and are at the "juvenile" stage of the series, hehe.

These tools have no extra grinds but they are stamped with a wide variety of my popular antique and modern blacksmith and jeweler stamps. I had a bit of fun with them and there are many unique examples here...I will send these out with random stamps as usual. There are a handful of lefties among these too btw.

These SpinWrenches will run $75 plus shipping. The batch is quite large so I will make it a limit of two per customer. If ordering more than one from a location outside the US, they will ship via Priority Mail International...a portion of the sale today will go to Fisher House Foundation in support of our military families. The link to order is right below and thank you so much for stopping by today!


All gone for now, thank you so much everyone! :)

I have waited SpinWrenches for long time. I just realized I can order 2 of them. So I ordered twice (a bit greedy :). Hope everybody have good luck.

Hi Peter,

Super chunky goodness! These SpinWrenches look really solid and interesting.

Do you plan another version of these in the near future please? Wraw? Stainless?

Thank you.

Andy
