Hope you all had a great holiday weekend! It was lovely here, a great and productive weekend. I managed to get my garden all squared away, slept in late a couple days, and did countless small tasks around the house. We're about to cool off for about a week, weather that my lettuce will really appreciate.
I've been cranking out the projects recently. My goal mostly has been to get things moving along so that I can coast through the summer and fall and concentrate on finishing projects rather than all the prep work that goes into making these things. I actually try to do this every year, but this year with the costs rising on everything, I figured I really better get ahead of it as much as possible...
So, there is some great new stuff on the way. I decided to revive the old Bug Out Bar concept and have created a brand new design that offers more versatility. So a first batch is underway right now in titanium. I was looking back on other old designs and discovered a tiny tool that I made years ago, but only in one very small batch. The Flea is a real throwback to my earliest stuff, and that one is also coming in titanium. The steel Wroid Chiggers are on the bench and will be next up for grinding and stamping. I still have summer weight steel Stubby MiniBars and Zr Stubby MiniBars underway and just need to get to the grinding and finishing. BarClaw tools are also awaiting grinding. I have several small misc projects to get to as well, just need to buckle down, ignore the numerous distractions, and get it all done.
Also, some awesome new stamps are here. I have had several dozen custom stamps made this year and another group is slated to run this week. There are some fantastic new images either done or in progress such as a rooster head, Loch Ness Monster, new compass stamps, vintage fishing lure series, new pirate skulls, aliens, and many many others. And I just had my stamping anvil and the platen of my name stamp press surface ground, so they are now like brand new and will be good for years to come.
Today I have some super cool new Zirconium Atwrenches for you. I altered the design slightly to broaden the pry tips so that these have a more robust feel than the earlier designs. And then I kind of went crazy, hehe...this batch has some really wild grinds going with many unique pieces. If you are a fan of my complex grinds you will love these. There are many different configurations, and also plenty of conventional leaning ones. And I have a couple of completely plain ones here as well if you're not a fan of the wacky stuff. Just drop me a line and I am happy to hook you up. I also have a half dozen very nice lefties available.
Zr Atwrenches with CrazyGrinds will run $80 plus shipping and the link is below. Thanks for dropping by today and hope you have a great week ahead.
All gone, thank you so much everyone!
