Steel MiniBar+ Tools

Howdy all,

It's very cloudy out there today, humidity is climbing and we're due for thunderstorms tonight. A fitting start to the first day of summer, which officially starts around 5PM today. I just got my first zucchini of the season so we seem to be right on schedule indeed.

I have a dozen steel MiniBar+ tools left. These are CPM 154 and have a wide variety of stamps. They will run $75 plus shipping. Thanks as always for checking in, and I hope you're staying cool out there.

All gone, thank you again folks! 


Wroidy Chiggers!

The micro batch madness continue! I have just 10 of these thick CPM 154 steel Chiggers left. These are heavily stamped with a wide range of images, and a couple of them have some extra grinds as well. There is one plain piece without stamps too if anyone wants to email me for that one... At any rate, these will run $85 plus shipping and the link is below. Thanks for swinging by, and have a great day!

All gone, thank you!

Happy Heatwave Week Everyone!

It's rather pleasant out there this morning but we're due for some temps in the 90's for the next two or three days. I know you guys down south and in the southwest are used to it, but us Weather Wimps up here will be sweltering. :) 

I'm picking away at the steel MiniBars this week and trying to get the grinding done. At least it's nice and cool down in the shop.

I came across a little stash of older items this week. Up first are a handful of steel Hangman18's with stamping, and tritium slots. I only have six of these...they will run $65 plus shipping and the link is below. Thanks for coming by today, and stay cool out there!

Poof, gone in a flash, thank you so much!

Howdy all, and Happy Thursday!

It's another gorgeous sunny one here today, following several lovely late spring days. Supposed to rain tomorrow though... A few more nice days ahead and then most of next week we're supposed to get 3-5 scorching hot days in a row! I guess summer time is coming right on schedule.

Today I have a couple dozen CPM154 steel Mini Superbug tools for you. These are plain, without stamps. I have a few more stamped ones coming too pretty soon, but these are all plain ones today. They will run $70 each plus shipping and the link is below. Thanks for dropping by and hope you have a great Father's Day weekend ahead!

Second Wave Timascus A51 Larvae!

Hi Folks,

Well Happy Monday to you! It was a spectacular weekend here, bit rainy at times but the late Spring temperatures were just right and perfect for the beginning of the outdoor music season. There have always been great musicians in this area and it was nice to catch some live outdoor performances.

I managed to squeeze in some work this weekend as well and got most of the remaining Timascus Larva tools done. I will have a handful more with stamps coming up shortly too. Anyhow, these are all with A51 grinds and are $75 plus shipping. The link is below...thank you for stopping by, and hope your week is shaping up to be a good one!

Sold Out, thank you everyone! :)

Generation 3 TightWads

Hi Everyone,

Well it's another warm and muggy day here in New England with storm in the forecast. We're having a very nice spring for sure and my garden is absolutely thriving. I expect we will see a very hot summer coming up though, and they are predicting a tough hurricane season ahead.

I've been chipping away at the various projects. I got the rest of the timascus Larva tools ground and tumbled out, now just need to give them final color treatments. I finally started grinding the long awaited steel MiniBars and those should be ready to send to heat treat later next week. I will tackle steel Prybabies after those are done, and I have a big batch of timascus Tombstones to start on as well. I'm also contemplating making another batch of titanium Count Sporkulas and perhaps one more timascus item this summer, to be decided.

Today I have some cool new titanium Generation 3 TightWads for you. These have been waiting for quite some time for me to get around to finishing them up and I have actually been working on them for weeks. They are slow going because they like to stick together in the tumblers, so I just do a handful at a time and usually combine them with other items. Even then, many need to be tumbled over and over until they are right...the batch today is titanium but a huge batch of the same design in 301 half hard stainless steel  is also awaiting finishing for later this year.

At any rate, these are fully loaded with features. First is enhanced deep side grips which also allow for easy access to your cards and cash. Next we have the ubiquitous cap lifter and 5/16 wrench combo, as well as 1/2" and 9/16" wrench openings. Then there is a 8-11mm wrench set. Finally, there is a central slot and you might wonder what that is for. :) When I designed these I was looking for a way to add even more features and I realized that a slot would allow for insertion of SAK toothpick, tweezers or pen. This works very well, and you can actually add two tools back to back if you want. 

Now, what I did not anticipate was that the bands might be compromised if they are pierced, and many people seem to go through bands quicker than I thought. So, I am going to leave the bands unpierced and let you DIY if you want to try the SAK tool feature. I recommend using a leather punch and using the smallest hole punch size if you choose to do it. One more thing, I don't have an endless supply of bands, but the TightWads use a standard Youth (not adult!) size wrist band, so you can easily get as many as you need from any online wrist band maker. They are customizable too.

Lastly, the TightWads are all stamped with a wide variety of images!

Gen 3 TightWads will run $70 plus shipping and the link is below. Thanks for popping in today and have a great weekend ahead!

All gone for now, thank you so much!
