GearWrench & The Alliance: WIN NOW!!!

This is a pretty big deal… Essentially, the folks at GearWrench wanted to support the Alliance and have decided to do so by giving away a 14-piece set of metric 120XP ratcheting wrenches to a new alliance member every day until Friday. That’s like a $311 value… Rad, right?

Here’s how it will work. At the end of each day, we are gonna randomly choose a member that bought into the Alliance and mail them a set of wrenches. Simple as that… And we are going to do it EVERY day this week.

How about that?

Good luck… and a special thanks to GearWrench for the support!

The Trusco was first designed in 1947 by a witty Japanese man. The early units seem to last forever and you can still find them on Ebay in top shop. And while I have no idea if these new reproductions are worth a damn, they sure are pretty.

You can check them out here┬áin the MoMA store or all places…

AND, he has the shop to prove it. Watch the above video and ignore the watch stuff (if you aren’t a timely man) and pay attention to his shop set up. It’s nothing short of gorgeous… and an inspiration.

Atomic Shop Update: Floors Are Done

The pace is still slow, but there is still a pace… After getting the concrete work done in preparation for the Bendpak flush mount lift, I was finally in a place to deal with the floors. In the office space that is connected to this shop, you might remember that I used a Legacy Industrial product. That floor has been absolutely bullet proof and still looks as good as it did the day it went down, so I decided to go back to the boys at Legacy Industrial for the flooring in my shop.

Boxes Of Wood

A few years ago, a good friend gave me an old Gerstner machinist chest as a gift. I’ve used as a watch box (another sickness of mine), but also as a starting point for another obsession – I love these old things – both classic Gerstners as well as more obscure and home made boxes.

Anyway, let’s see your wood tool boxes.
