    We use to offer custom engraving and he had me do several for him and others. The custom program got to be a lot to keep tabs on though so it's not a regular offering. We might do an annual batch of custom tools though.

    A new (to me) lathe - a hand-me-down from my grandfather.

    New tool, old camera. Atwood Shutterbug that I will outfit with a #5 and hopefully mount to frame.

    Awesome to hear. A few months back I (this is going to kill me to say this) lost my crombie/chain whip during a week from hell--fourteen overhauls--and will have to replace it soon. Every time I pick up a chain whip, lockring tool, and crescent I sit there for a few seconds and try to hold back the tears. If you're still working on the final touches of the new chain whip then I'd suggest looking to add a magnet near the base to hold the chain from swinging around when its not being put to use. It's a nice touch. I do that to every whip I purchase and have received tons of comments for it from those who are familiar with the tool.

    Watchout Abbey, looks like Wolftooth is getting into tools and their BB socket looks familiar.

    I have a new tool coming today, pretty excited about it...pics tomorrow.

    The set of hex wrenches wrapped in tape I carry along on rides was getting rusty (understatement,) so I got a pair of these. They seem well made. Fit in the small Arundel bag I have nicely. The two parts fit together snugly enough you can use them effectively as a t-wrench. On this model, the bits are fixed. I got 4,5,6mm hex and a philips head screwdriver. The philips is chunky but still fits the limit screws on the derailleurs. The 5mm fits through the fork crown hole to reach the caliper bolt. I have a few T-25 Torx fittings on my bike, so it was a toss up between the philips and the Torx. They make a replaceable bit version, and I am sure these can be "modified" to be replaceable, but then I would have to chase bits around and likely lose them on a roadside somewhere.

    I picked up one of these Bontrager torque wrenches after using a pal's. I assume it will stay accurate enough. Ive tested it against my nicer wrench and its pretty spot on. It's nice to not have to change ends. 4mm is mostly all I use. The darn thing is so handy it doesn't take long to get over the trek stench.

    I've got the set with replaceable bits and it works great. The extra bits come in small plastic sleeve. For trailside on the mtb the sleeve usually stays in the pack and all I need is the four on the sticks.

    It's also nice to use in the garage. Not a full replacement for good individual allen's (I've been using the Hex Pro flex keys and really like them) but the bits are a good and accurate.

    I picked up a NOS Yost 204 Machinist vise off eBay for cheap. Here it is what it replaced.

    well, let me play devil's advocate. im curious, being that it's a tool that has very little room for variation other than aesthetics (which they seem to have done well enough with), how much different can you expect a handle-less bb tool to be?
    for example, are these all rip-offs?

    no disrespect meant, just trying to understand the mindset when theyre called a ripoff.

    -type of construction
    -material used
    -overall shape
    -came out after a very short time than the Abbey Tools one

    No need to get upset, mine is just a reflection of how a bigger company can get more visibility than a small manufacturer.

    Besides, am I wrong thinking that Bahco made the original design for adjustable spanners, as some of the ones in picture above, are? And we're talking several decades.

    I'm sure Jason doesn't feel it's a compliment, but they would have improved upon his tool if they could have.

    I believe Chris King was actually the first company to come out with an aluminum bottom bracket socket. Enduro might have beat them to it with their hybrid version though. It wasn't me that's for sure. I did tweak some things that added up to make what I still think is the best tool of it's kind on the market. Park recently came out with some aluminum BB sockets and I've yet to get my hands on them but I'm sure they are typical Park quality. I'm interested to see the Wolf Tooth in person as there's some interesting things going on with it.

    I appreciate the support from the Salton a lot.

    Hello all,

    Hugh here. Long time lurker, infrequent poster. Finally have something to post about. New Phil Wood Grease gun arrived just in time for new tool Tuesday. Was very impressed by the little machined flat and the etched Phil logo.
