Titanium Atwrenches

Good Morning,

I have a tiny batch of Titanium Atwrenches available. These have been stamped with my antique diemaker stamps and are all different. And they are anodized all different colors as well. There are only a dozen of these so it will be one per customer and the price is $70 plus shipping. To keep it simple I'll just pick one unless you have a strong preference which can be indicated by email or comments field in the shopping cart. As always, thanks for stopping by today. :)

Sold Out! Thanks so much. :)

Bead Blasted MetWrenches

Hi Folks,

Hope you had a great weekend! It was good here. I didn't think about working for 4-5 days so it was nice to have a few days completely off. Anyway, I have a couple of things I want to get done before the end of the year...

I have a small batch of bead blasted Metwrenches available. Less than twenty pieces so I'll make it one per customer and the price is $60 plus shipping.

Sold Out, thanks!

Thank you so much for all your interest and support this year. I am truly blessed and I owe it all to you! :)

Howdy all,

All gone, thank you!

No ABCards this Week

The Atwood Business Cards encountered a glitch so will not be ready this week. Hopefully we'll get them squared away for next year.

As you can see the dingdongs left off the beginning and the end marks on the ruler scale. I purposely made a ruler scale that was supposed to be centered in the space on this tool. That way if the machine marked it a little to the left or right then it would not matter if it lined up with the end of the ruler or not. I had to trash a few of the rulers earlier this year because they missed a mark.

But, they used the files for the old rulers which do not have the end marks that we specifically created for the ABC. The end marks should be spaced one increment over on either end and they are the same length as the 1 and 2 hashmarks. Same thing on the reverse of the tool which is metric. However, they say that they can run them through again and add the marks so we'll see...this sample is bead blasted but I'm hoping most of them would end up stonewashed. Otherwise, it's a nice tool. :)

From the insert card:

The Atwood Business Card combines 21 wrench functions in a single wallet sized 420 stainless steel card tool. Features include six SAE sizes: ¼, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, ½, 9/16. Metric sizes include 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16mm in the center set and 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15mm in the righthand set. ¼ and 5/16 nut driver openings and 5/16 bottle opener are included. Two rulers complete the package.

MetWrench with Face Grinds

Good Morning,

Looks like we dodged the bullet as far as the big snow storm is concerned. We didn't even get a dusting! I'm grateful because I was dreading all the cleanup and we already have lots of snow on the ground with much more to come no doubt. Best of luck digging out to the folks south of here though.

Anyway, I have two dozen MetWrenches available with extra grip Face Grinds. These are pretty cool looking. Because there's a small number I'll keep it at one per customer and they will run $65 plus shipping. As always, thanks for stopping by and hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend.

Sold Out, thank you!

Rest of the MetWrenches

Howdy folks,

OK, I don't have very many left, maybe two dozen at the most...

Sold Out, thank you!

Thursday, December 17, 2009


Hi folks,

I have half the batch of MetWrenches done and ready to go. These are 5/32" thick S30v steel and feature Metric wrench sizes 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15mm. Also a heavy duty prytip/screwdriver and a bottle opener with distinctive M shape to denote that it is a Metric tool. There are no lefties, no titanium pieces, no stamped pieces and no glow dots on any of these. Pretty much a straight ahead batch this time.

Metwrenches are $60 each plus shipping. Thanks for taking time to stop by and hope your holidays are pleasant so far.

Sunday, December 13, 2009


Good Morning folks. Sorry for the delay there...I had a bunch of family holiday related preparations and events to attend to. Finally got the SlotShot portion of this BigShot batch finished.

These have the same diamond knurl on them but feature three slots milled into the top ring. They are sized to accept the standard colored self lighting 1.5 x 5mm gas glow tubes that many of guys enjoy. I am not supplying the tubes, you will have to procure and install them yourselves if you want these. Alternatively, the slots could be filled with epoxy and glow powder mixture if you don't want to mess with the tubes or left alone, they look great left open too. The best current tube source is Bart on the Candlepowerforums Marketplace:


The SlotShots are $60 plus shipping.

Sold Out, thank you!

Diamond Knurl BigShots

Good Morning Folks,

OK, I have some BigShots available with diamond knurling. These are really beautiful and I'm kicking myself that I didn't do some with diamond knurling before. Anyway, I didn't make a whole lot of them this time around but I'll certainly keep this style in mind for any future batches. Diamond Knurl BigShots are $55 plus shipping.

I have not yet finished the SlotShot version but hope to work on them later today for release tomorrow. They cost me a bit more to make so will be priced accordingly.

All Gone, thank you!

Wednesday, December 09, 2009

Update for December

Lots of stuff in the works.

I'll be finishing up the next batch of BigShots today. These have a heavy diamond knurl on them. They look and feel terrific. A portion of the batch are SlotShots and feature 3 milled slots in the top knurling ring that are sized to accept 1.5 x 5mm self lighting gas tubes. I will not be filling these slots but users can obtain their own tubes if desired and epoxy them in. There are sources on Candlepowerforums for the tubes.

Yesterday I sent out the Metric Atwrenches to be heat treated. We should see those completed around the end of next week.

The Atwood Business Cards are coming along well and should be ready to send to the laser engravers by the end of this week for the rulers to be applied. I'm not sure what the turn around time will be on those but hopefully it is about one week.

I have another SUSale coming in a day or two as well.

Talonite MSOPThing SUS

Hi Folks,

I finally got around to making some sheaths and finishing up these talonite MSOPThings that have been sitting on the shelf for the past two years. For those that aren't familiar with talonite it is an exotic cobalt based alloy that is completely salt water resistant. It is rare, expensive and a pain to work with. All of these tools have Glowcord handle wrappings and feature my antique satin finish, kydex sheath and bead chain.

Anyway, I have only nine of these little knives available and that is the end of the batch of them. The price will be $250 plus $15 shipping in the US or $30 for Express Mail International. The Sign Up Sale will run until 9PM Eastern Time tonight, December 3, 2009. Remember, one entry per person please, duplicates will be discarded before the drawing. As always, thanks for stopping by!

G3 Prybabies

Hi Folks,

I just got a batch of steel G3 Prybabies back from heat treat yesterday. These have the nice semi shiny Stone Aged™ finish on them for a cool instant antique look. The finish feels buttery smooth in the hand and resists scratching very well. Also, this batch is slightly thicker than the previous ones so the pieces are extra beefy. Improvements to this batch include larger teeth for better grip. Wrench sizes include 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2 and 9/16. There are no lefties in this run, sorry.

Sold Out, thanks!

Bead Blasted Basic Minis

Howdy all,

I have about two dozen bead blasted Basic Minis available. These are exactly like the Mini XL pictured below but without the bend...this will be pretty much the end of the batch with 20+ pieces.

Either one of these bead blasted Basic models are $45 each plus shipping.

The Minis are sold out, thank you very much.

Bead Blasted Mini XL

Hi folks,

I have a very small number of bead blasted Mini XL Prybabies available. They are the thick stock S30V steel version. The Mini XLs are $55 plus shipping and one per customer please.

All Gone, thank you!

So You Want Cool and Different?

I have several dozen Mini Prybabies available that are decorated with my antique diemaker's stamps. These are Original Minis so they are small, thick and hefty. I have many different stamped images and also different finishes including stonewashed, antique satin and bead blasted. So due to the great variety I have decided to avoid confusion and try to keep it simple...if you want one of these I will send you what I send you and there is no choice available, it's just too complicated to try to let people choose. Many of these are one of a kind and with some of the others such as the crowns, maple leaves, thistles and clovers I have several of each available. They are all pretty cool though so I think folks will like them.

These are $55 plus shipping and it is a one per customer sale.

Sold Out, thanks!

Here's a small sample of the designs:

More DotShots...

...I have a few More available.

Howdy folks,

I have a new wave of fancy DotShots available. Also a small number of the Original BigShots as well but I will get to those in a future sale. For those who may be unfamiliar with this product, these are 3 fl oz capacity stainless steel shot glasses, just the right size for a couple of ice cubes and a splash of your favorite libation. Turned and milled from a solid bar of 303 stainless steel, they weigh in at a hefty 1/2 lb each. If you're looking for an unusual Christmas gift for person who has everything then this would be a great one.

The only change made to this run was a slightly rounder and beefier lip to match the smaller Tippler shot glass a bit better. Otherwise they are identical to the previous batches. These are $55 each plus shipping and due to the weight I am only offering the Express Mail option for international buyers. Thanks!

Tuesday, October 27, 2009


Good evening folks,

I have a few matte green Perfies available, link is below.

All gone for tonight, thank you.

Plain Perfies

Alrighty then. I have some plain unanodized titanium Perforated Prybabies available today. These have a stonewashed finish. They are $90 plus shipping.

I still have more pieces to process from the batch so there will be more waves beyond this one. I'll probably do some green ones next.

Thanks for stopping by folks, much appreciated!

These are gone for now but there are more on the way, thanks!

Friday, October 23, 2009

Rainbow Perfbabies

Hi Everyone,

OK, I have the first wave of the ti Perfbabies done. They are slow going to finish them so the quantity is limited, hence I am keeping it at one per customer please. I will be having several waves of these in various colors over the next few days though so there will be several chances to get one.

For my international customers: This is an expensive item so I am giving you a choice of Priority Mail International shipping for $13 but there is no tracking and no insurance possible with this method of shipping. You may choose Priority to save a few bucks and it's no problem, but realize there is no recourse if the package is lost. I also will offer Express Mail International for $28 which does offer tracking and insurance so I leave it up to you. Titanium Perfbabies are $90 each plus shipping.

Sold Out! Thank you! More coming very soon.

Left Handed Chiggers

Good Morning,

I have a small number of left handed Chiggers available for my left handed customers.

Sold Out!

Friday, October 16, 2009

What's the Word?

In case you all were wondering what is next...

I sent out the titanium Perforated Prybabies to the tumblers earlier this week. For those unfamiliar with this tool it is a titanium version of the swiss cheese Prybabies that I made a few years ago. The old batch was made in steel. These titanium ones are the thickest Prybabies I have ever done at 3/16 thick and they look very similar to the original design although I did tweak the holes a little. The holes make the Perfies incredibly light at only 1/2 oz each. Speaking of holes, there are 37 per piece and both sides had to be countersunk so they were quite a bit of work besides the usual grinding and milling steps. Due to the extra work involved, the material costs and the waterjet costs these will come in at $90 each plus shipping. I will have them finished and available by the end of next week. As soon as I get them back from the tumblers I will snap a few pictures. I'll be doing a variety of colors.

Other projects: I'm working on some steel G3 Prybabies as well and should have them going in about 2-3 weeks. The next batch of WingNuts will follow that. Another batch of BigShots has been started and I will have regular ones with knurling and also some of the fancier DotShots with knurling. Also in the works is another small batch of Chiggers. And I will be revisiting the original Atwrench design in late November or early December but this time with a metric wrench set, the largest of which will be 15mm.

These are also some more Sign Up Sales coming with a variety of odds and ends in between the larger releases.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Paypal Gift Option

OK, I was originally concerned about the inability to create mailing lables if someone sent me funds via the recently added "gift" option in Paypal. That problem was solved when I learned about a different way to create the labels. However, I talked to my accountant and it seems that I should not accept payments via the gift option because it could be construed by Paypal as a violation of service terms. So, if anyone sends me a payment with the gift option I will be refunding it and contacting them to resend the payment as "goods". It might be anal but I want to stay out of trouble.

Saturday, October 10, 2009

Titanium Ring Tools

Last winter I offered some titanium Ring Tools. I have a few more Ring Tools available right now, anodized green. These are made of 3/16" thick titanium and the opening is equal to a standard size 12 ring so will fit onto small to medium sized fingers. There is a 1/4" hex opening on the tool and an O ring and screwdriver bit are included. These run $35 each plus shipping. I do have a few that are blue and some rose gold anodized as well.

Green ones are gone. Thanks!

Stonewashed Original Minis

Got the Atwood Itch?

Well, maybe the Atwood Chigger™ will help you scratch it. :D

The simple design of this cute little tool pays homage to the classic key ring screwdriver/pry tools of the past but adds a bottle opener and 5/16" wrench. The large 3/4" hex opening makes it easy to slip onto a keyring and helps provide grip. The Chigger™ is made of 5/32" thick CPM S30v steel, is 2.25" long and features a stone washed finish. These are $45 plus shipping.

Thanks folks, these are gone for now! I very much appreciate it.

Blasted Mini XLs

Hi Folks,

After a couple of days of laying around and sleeping I seem to be feeling a little better. So it's time for a sale.

I have the remaining Mini+ Prybaby XLs ready to go. These are bead blasted. I don't have a whole lot of them so I'm going to keep it to one per person so that some of the folks who missed the stonewashed release get a chance at them.

Sold out, thank you once again folks!

No Sale Today

Hi folks.

Paypal is doing something weird and for some reason I'm not able to view any transactions from today in my transactions list. So I will not be able to do a sale today until they get it straightened out. I'm able to accept payments and the balance is correct but no listing comes up with my transactions. Very odd. They have been doing some maintenance recently and obviously something is messed up.

I am going to try to get to some bead blasting today. Hopefully will get to the rest of the minis and also some FunnyBones in the next day or so. Thanks for your patience!

Mini Plus XL

Hi Everyone,

OK, I have a portion of the Mini Plus XL batch completed. Exact same specs as the Mini Plus but they have a small bend for extra leverage. The bend does not significantly change the length of 2.5".

These will be $55 plus shipping. Link is here:

Sold out for now, thank you!

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

Mini Prybabies®

OK, I have some Minis ready to go finally. This is the first wave only. I have several wave's worth of these coming over the next few days with several different flavors. This group is the largest and I'm calling it the Mini Plus Prybaby® to distinguish it from the Original Mini Prybaby®. The only difference between the two designs is the 1/4" hex in the body and also the Mini Plus is slightly lighter stock at 1/8" thick. These are all S30v steel.

A word on the tumbling. These have a nice satin stonewashed finish but are not quite as shiny as my recent batches of tools. Also, everything that came back from this tumble has some remnants of bronze heat coloring on the edges and inside surfaces and in the name stamps. This is the result of the tempering oven cycles and usually I don't see this. Not quite sure what they did differently but I want to make it plain up front so that folks don't email me thinking there is rust on any of these pieces. It's NOT rust, just heat coloring.

I will also be doing a portion of these with a bead blasted finish just like the original Minis. So more of them will be coming as I get them done. The straight Mini Plus group with stonewashed finish is what I have done right now so they are up first. XLs will be coming probably tomorrow afternoon. I did not get to any lefties yet. Thanks for checking in folks! :)

Mini Plus Prybabies® are $45 each plus shipping. Link is here:

Sold Out for now, more tomorrow. Thank you!

Friday, September 11, 2009

Update on Minis

So, I just spoke to my heat treat guy. They are all done and have been tumbled with the shiny Stone Aged finish. He is shipping the first batch of Mini Prybabies out to me today so I should have them on Monday's UPS. That means Tuesday will be the first wave of sales. I expect to be able to offer these in several waves over several days as I get them sorted, cleaned up and packaged up. Thanks for your patience folks!

Monday, September 07, 2009


Howdy Folks! Hope your weekend has been a relaxing one. I've been working for some of it and kicking back for the rest of the time.

I only made two dozen and they are all anodized green. They are $75 each plus shipping and I'm keeping it at one per customer because of the limited stock. Purchase link is here:

Hi Folks,

Just wanted to let you know that I am grinding and milling this week. Will have Mini Prybabies coming up next but realistically it will be about two or three weeks before completion.

The lottery will run until 8PM eastern time tonight, Friday, August 7th. The 16 winners will be announced shortly thereafter and I will send emails out at that time with purchase instructions.

Same specs as the steel G3s in regard to wrenches and sizes but these are slightly thinner at .140 due to the shortage of 5/32" titanium stock. I am finishing the batch in stages and will offer some plain ones next but today I only have the green ones done. Price is $70 each lus shipping and purchase link is below:

Sold out for now, thank you folks! More coming though so stay tuned.

What's Up?

Hi Folks,

Thought I'd better give an update. I'm going to start finishing up Tipplers tomorrow so should have those going by Tuesday and Wednesday. I'm hoping to see the titanium G3 Prybabies back from the tumblers by the end of the week but my understanding is that they are very busy right now so I'm not positive when they will come back to me. But my fingers are crossed for a release next weekend.

In the meantime I have been getting sheets cut and am in the middle of planning for even more. We'll be seeing a smallish batch of FunnyBones in two-three weeks or so and another batch of steel G3 Prybabies in about a month. I have a feeling quantities of G3 Prybabies are probably covered for the near future between the batch last week, the upcoming titanium ones and then the next group of steel pieces. I also need to get going and grind the next batch of WingNuts. Still did not get to the metric drawings though...

There are several surprises coming as well but I need to keep it quiet for a little bit until I get some proto pieces completed. But I can tell you all that it is going to be an excellent late summer and fall this year with some very interesting new items coming. :D

G3 Steel Prybabies

Happy Friday Folks!

I finally have the first bunch of steel G3 Prybabies ready to go. These have the buttery smooth Stone Aged™ finish on them. I ended up cutting these with seven SAE wrench sizes instead of the previous version which had six sizes: 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 9/16 and 5/8". The insert cards state just six sizes ending with 9/16" but I didn't want to throw them away and make new ones. So for all the sticklers and nitpickers out there I'm sending out the old cards with the G3s. :p :D

The steel G3s are $60 plus shipping. Will be more than one wave of them.

Sold out for now, thank you!

I have been getting a lot of emails asking two questions:

1. The titanium G3 Prybabies are still two weeks away at least, possibly longer. I have not finished the grinding and clean up on them yet and they still need to get tumbled. So it's going to be a little while yet. Lots of projects happening all at once as usual!

2. Also, there will be no G3 Prybaby XLs at all in either metal due to difficulty in processing. When heated and bent they are prone to a small surface stress crack near the thumb grooves. The crack is minor and although it is fixable it's a total pain in the butt so I'm not going to be making any. There will be something else with an XL bend later this summer however so sit tight. ;)

One other thing, I will NOT be making these in metric. I have other metric tools in the planning stages though so stay tuned for releases later this summer or early fall for metric sized stuff.

Thanks everyone! Hope your summer is going well. :)

Shooting For Friday...

...and/or the weekend for the steel G3 Prybabies. ;) There are quite a lot of them coming back from heat treat. Since I have already made and sold some fairly good sized batches of these last year I think it will probably be very easy to score one.

Bead Blasted WingNuts

Hi Folks,

I have a few of the WingNuts with a bead blasted finish available. These are the same exact specs as the previous batch except for the finish. This is a small release but I will have another good sized run of them in about two-three weeks or so. Thanks!

Sold Out!

The Atwood WingNut is the latest in my ever evolving line of pocket multi wrench style tools. The material for these is 5/32" thick CPM 154 steel hardened to 57-58 Rockwell. The overall length is a little longer than my past keychain tools at 4 inches and they weigh in at 1.6 ozs making it a substantial tool but one that is still easily carried in a pocket or bag. I have one on my keyring right now and it is quite manageable.

Features include both open and closed wrench sets in SAE sizes 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2 and 9/16. In addition there is a 1/4" hex opening and a large screwdriver/pry tip plus two smaller pry tips on the front end that could double as screwdrivers in a pinch. The Stone Aged™ antique EDC finish feels smooth to the touch and makes the tool look like it spent the last fifty years riding comfortably in your grandfather's pocket. :D

This is the first wave with at least two more coming this summer, pieces already underway. I'm hoping to get the drawings done for the metric version in a week or two as well. WingNuts are $70 plus shipping.

Sold Out for now, thank you!
