MetWrenches Return

Howdy Folks,

The lovely fall weather is upon us at last. The sumacs are starting to turn red and here and there the maples are turning various shades of yellow, orange and red too. But I would say we are still at least a week or two away from the peak foliage. Hopefully it won't get rainy and windy and ruin the show too soon this year.

Today I have more of the S30v Metwrenches done. These are the same as the last batch, nice chunky .160 stock and again, they have the odd number metric sizes from 5-15mm. These tools had a long series of tumbles in a variety of media types which softened the edges and left them with a lovely feel in the hand. Definitely an heirloom tool.

The Metwrench batch isn't huge so it will be a one per customer sale. They run $60 plus shipping and the link is below. As always, thank you for stopping by!

Sold out for now, thank you again everyone!

BitBucket Keyfobs

Hi Folks,

Well, the weather forecast looks a bit ugly today so I'm going to sneak this sale in early and hope that I get all the labels done before we may have to shut down the computers or possibly lose power. Supposed to be severe thunderstorms with high winds but we'll far we have been really lucky this year, unlike in years past.

As you all know, I spend a lot of time coming up with new product ideas and this is one that I have been mulling over for a long time. I'm happy to finally bring it into reality. The concept is very simple and I think the solution is quite elegant. I wanted an easy and unobtrusive way to carry extra 1/4" hex bits and this method came to mind. The BitBucket is 2.5" long by 1/2" diameter container, same size as my whistles and the ribbed design is very similar. Two standard 1 inch long hex bits will fit inside and they are retained with a #1 NiteIze S-biner clip for easy on and off access. Or you can put the BitBucket directly onto your keyring although the bits are then not as easy to get to.

At any rate, the aluminum BitBuckets are anodized with a warm bronzy gunmetal colored finish and are supplied with #1 and #2 phillips bits and a black S-biner clip. Of course you could put any bits you want in there ranging from torx to metric (4mm and 5mm bike) to any of a multitude of specialty bits that are available through a simple internet search. The first wave of these is aluminum but there will be another wave of aluminum ones up the road in a different anodized color. And there are titanium BitBuckets being turned right now. Perhaps a few others may show up in other materials as well.

BitBuckets run $55 plus shipping and the link is below. If you don't see the link that means that the sale is over and they are sold out. Thanks again for stopping in folks and hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead!

BitBuckets are Sold Out for now, thank you again!

More G2 Ghosts

Howdy Folks,

It's feeling like Fall is right around the corner today...the weather suddenly cooled down 15 degrees since earlier this week. Won't be long before the leaves start turning. Where oh where did the summer go?

So, projects are proceeding right on schedule. More Metwrenches will be returning from heat treat probably around the end of next week. I am close to finished on the rest of the ti Dreadknots and should be able to get those together in the next few days. In addition, the first wave of the new round item, the BitBucket(TM), will be coming back from the anodizer probably early next week and those will be quite interesting. Ti ones to follow as well and perhaps some other metals. More news on them when I actually get some finished examples in my hand.

Today I have a few more S30v steel G2 Ghosts done. These are the same as the previous waves: stonewashed, no variations, no stamps, etc. I have more on the schedule as well so there will be several more waves finished here and there through the autumn. Hopefully a lot more people will get a chance at them.

Anyway, the G2 Ghosts are $60 plus shipping. Purchase link is below...thanks once again everyone and I hope your upcoming weekend is a great one!

This wave is mostly gone for now but more coming soon. Thanks as always everyone!
