Steel Gremlins!

Howdy Everyone,

It's a wet and kind of balmy one here today. Thank goodness we finally got a good soaking rain yesterday and last night because the drought has left the area way behind our usual annual rainfall. When you drive around you can see that the ponds and streams are quite low this year. Probably means we are going to be in for a snowy winter though.

Well I'm slowly getting there on projects. I have the 12 Point tools about halfway done and hope to get them to heat treat pretty soon. I'm also working on a couple of bead projects and trying to coordinate some really cool stuff for after Thanksgiving and into the holiday season. We'll see how far I get before time runs out for the year.

Today I finally have the steel Gremlins done. These are 3v steel tools and have a similar finish to the P12 Prybabies that I made earlier this year. But, this sheet was not quite as heavily textured and the overall finish reminds me very much of old wooden factory floors that have been reclaimed when they convert those facilities to office space. If you have ever seen that you would know instantly what I mean. Anyhow, the Gremlins have loads of character! They are fairly small so I decided not to bother trying to get the 3v stamp on the back side this time. There are no lefties in this batch or stamped tools but the grinds do vary a little bit.

The steel Gremlins will run $50 plus shipping and the purchase link is below. It's two per customer on this sizable batch. Thanks for stopping in today of course, and hope your week is shaping up to be a great one.

Gremlins are gone for today but I will have a few more done this week if anyone wishes to email me. Thanks again everyone!
