Elora Box End Slugging Wrenches are made according to the DIN 7444 standards with a steel grey finish. BTR Distributors takes pride as the Official Distributor for Elora hand tools in the United States. Improving safety and saving time are two major trends that hand tool manufacturers are focusing on in the marketplace.
The blade automatically retracts the moment it loses contact with the material being cut, even if the user is still holding the blade slider forward in the open position. Any design improvements that improve safety are valued in the marketplace, adds Kurt Owen, director of product development for Klein Tools.
Klein also introduced a new Non-Conductive Fiberglass Fish Tape to prevent shorts and faults while fishing.
Klein also introduced a conduit reaming drill head that fits into power drill chucks and quick release adapters. Asset management and tool control are also hot topics as of late, as companies try to operate more efficiently while reducing costs.
Snap-on Industrial‘s VTC (Visual Tool Control) system tool box is a clear-view tool box that allows technicians to see their hand tools in an organized manner for quick identification.
Snap-on Industrial also recently launched two new ratchets: a FOD (foreign object damage) Compliant Ratchet and the Williams Scaffolding Ratchet. The Williams Scaffolding Ratchet is designed for when the job calls for erecting scaffolding to work at an elevated level. This saw has lived through about 8 American presidencies and roughly 4 major wars, and its still sees service today judging by the modern Diablo blade perched on the spindle.
Scientists have known for at least a century that the human hand has unique characteristics designed for gripping and manipulating objects, as opposed to the locomotion-designed hands of our closest ape relatives.
Flickr user whiteforge has a great collection of forged and antique tools, as you may remember from previous TM posts.
One other curiosity I found among the wreckage of my friend’s garage was this old Craftsman 18-inch belt sander.
The old man and I recently went out to a friend’s place to help her clear out her garage. And one last question: if other Toolmongers came across a similar diamond-mine-in-the-rough, what would you be most pleased to find in there? Inspired by a cool find by Toolmonger reader whiteforge, I dug up a photo of this unusual curved wrench, courtesy of Ron Geeson of Made in Birmingham. Charlie R { Conductive hook and loop tape was used extensively in the Space Shuttle program for temporarily installed protective covers on the SRB booster segments.
Chris { Rumor has it harbor freight was forced to discontinue the machine for patent issues.

It’s called Safety Matters and consists of modules covering various topics that can be tailored to individual user needs. We noticed during field research that screwdrivers were being used for purposes beyond the scope of the tool.
For example, its heavy duty multi-bit 10-in-1 screwdriver features six universal tips and converts to three nut driver sizes and one hex driver. It helps install conduit runs quicker and with less effort, which saves time and ultimately money, Owen says. Snap-on Industrial is constantly working with our customers to identify their needs and tooling requirements.
The VTC is a single-layer, glass-covered tool box that’s mobile and designed to be used for specific maintenance functions. The FOD Ratchet is intended for aviation and other critical applications where FOD and FME (foreign material exclusion) prevention is critical. The Scaffolding Ratchet is three tools in one – tools that are needed to easily and quickly engage the posts, fasteners and clamps on scaffolding. To sum up, hand size did prove to be a significant factor in how well different people could manipulate different forms of stone tools. This set of adjustable wrenches he posted caught my eye, since I’ve never seen any quite like them. Though I have to admit that I see some pretty big changes in the 40-or-so years between the first saw and the second — besides the fact that the price seems to have dropped significantly, at least in relative terms.
Way in the back of it we found a giant tool chest of drawers and a few cabinets full of tools. Opened back in 2006, it looks like this little metal building houses all sorts of old wrenches, blacksmith tools, household tools, and other sorts of neat stuff.
It was tough to track down, but evidently it comes from Snail Brand tools, a division of Smith Francis in Birmingham, England, who’ve been in business since 1934. Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag.
Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount.


This causes a major safety hazard for the user and the job site as well as the tool itself. Also, the round diameter fiberglass protects existing wires from damage when fishing,” he says. Another example of a multi-function tool is Klein’s all-in-one wall jack maintenance tool to remove the faceplate, remove the jack, punchdown the wire and replace the faceplate. The last thing we want is for a customer to modify an existing tool for a specific use, as any modifications can affect the integrity of that tool, creating a safety concern,” he says. Having a component separate from the tool and finding its way into an aircraft engine, or any other type of sensitive machinery, can cause great damage. Opposite of the socket is a bronze hammer head, which comes in handy to pound out quick-release levers. Oldtools in the UK has some cool-looking twisted handle wrenches that are similar, but not identical. What I find interesting is how little the basic technology of the table saw has changed in 80 years — or how advanced it was for its time.
Most of it was crap and we didn’t get to go through everything that night, but in the fading light of evening what we did manage to find made us very excited.
According to Noel’s photo captions, wrenches, saws, levels, planes, valve tools, coffee grinders, grease guns, screwdrivers, jacks, and a kerosene blowtorch were among the collection. The Fordson was the first mass-produced tractor that small farmers and ordinary people could afford, and was in production until 1991 when the company sold its tractor division to Fiat. While these vintage spanners are primarily in circulation overseas, a recent eBay auction (now closed) shows you can still get them for around ?18, or about $30.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Through these observations, we designed and engineered a screwdriver specifically for prying and chiseling,” Owen says.
To prevent that from occurring, the ratchet’s coverplate and reverse lever are permanently affixed to the ratchet head with rivets to eliminate the chance of small parts separating from the tool. Lastly, a pry bar is located on the other end of the ratchet to aid in scaffolding disassembly.
