    That’s sharp, I just finished redoing mine but that’s similar.

    I used Abbey’s pedal wrench the other day and a regular hex would work, but theirs is such a nice design/tool. I wouldn’t have a “W” scar on my right thumb if I’d always had one lol.

    Some of my box at work



    Big top drawer is normal stuff. Allen and hex sets, bunch of screwdrivers, etc. Little boxes on the top right have tire levers, speciality picks and di2 tools, spoke tools, eagle tools, and so on.



    Next drawer is ratchet stuff. These days I work far more with the ratchets then the loose hex keys. That being said, there are places the hex keys fit better, especially the cut down 5mm in the above photo. Mix of stuff but have learned the expensive way that Snap-on is best with these tools



    Pliers and stuff. Lots of knipex. The hole punch is pretty useful, as it easily goes through plastic fenders and stuff. Same with the bolt cutters for rack and fender bits



    Bb and stuff. Messy drawer, I haven’t got around to thinking up a storage system for all the drifts.



    Disc brake stuff. Shimano barbs usually go in here but I forgot to put them away. Bottle on the bottom right is my gravity bleed cup



    Hammers, things you hit with a hammer, and chainwhips. Pretty self explanatory.

    I forgot to take pics of the wrench drawer, but it’s pretty boring. Same with the power tools, but that’s a few Milwaukee m12 drivers and some bits.

    I hope people enjoy this, I always love looking at other people’s boxes. Feel free to ask about anything

    I'm stoked to see I have a bunch of the same tools. I'll refer back to fill in some gaps. Thanks for posting!

    Nice selection! Do you use the Knipex hose cutter for brake hoses? I gotta carve out a day to clean out my stationary box and I’ll post up all my tool setups between race, home, and shop

    yeah

    they are ok

    tbh the shimano one that clips into the barb pusher might be better. the knipex cuts clean, but you have to stick a pick in to round it out nicely so the barb goes in smooth

    To this day I don't know why Snap-on discontinued the E710BCG... best flush cuts ever. The new ones don't last as long, and they're $15 more expensive.

    Very well made, and if I break one I call my dude and he gets it fixed. With the ratchets they have the least back drag out of anything I’ve felt. The way to imagine that is when ratcheting in a fastener, the less back drag you have the easier you can start ratcheting. Bolts that have low friction going in will start driving sooner, more back drag on the ratchet means they will push in and out.

    Also with Snap-on I can get rebuild kits easily so ill try different stuff. That pink one is currently built with duomonde tech free hub lube and feels amazing, but will probably need service sooner

    Lyman gunsmith hammer. Was like 25$ on Amazon. Brass on one head and steel on the other. Coworker turned me on to it. Nice when you want to hit stuff a little but not leave a mark. I bought it not knowing how much I’d use it but comes in handy

    My man James laid this wonderful VAR pin tool on me last week. Yes it is the one that has two positions for the pins. James is a good friend.

    Sweet. I have a brass insert for my Abbey dual sided Crombie that's in one box, and a ti hammer in the other...but need to find a solution for other boxes that have single sided Crombies. This might work.

    Those are just rebranded Knipex. They also rebranded linstrom and bahco too. I have the bahco and Knipex self branded ones and they are both ace.

    I looked for ever and couldn't find who actually makes the E710BCG. They have the "look and feel" of other products that are definitely made by Snap-on direct, I had concluded that Snap-on stopped making them directly and just started rebranding for their replacement product. I have some Knipex and other off-brand stuff... if you can find a duplicate of Snap-on E710BCG that would be awesome!

    edit: my GoogleFu must be strong today. I think I found them. I may corner the market.

    Good find! I’ve been down the flush cut rabbit hole a few times. I used to have the snap on epc160 (going from memory) which were the rebranded lindstrom/bahco which I discovered after snap on discontinued them, I got the bahco version which is even better for me because of the orange grips!

    You can get good clues by looking at the country of origin on snap on. Spain: bahco, Germany: Knipex, etc.

    There’s lindstrom, bahco, swanstrom, eren all making similar tools.

    Check these out:

    6 IN FLUSH CUT PLIERS PFC5 | Matco Tools

    Look quite similar to the e710.

    Bahco is Snap On “industrial brand.” They keep it with JH Williams, CDI, etc.

    I’ve been happy with Channellock’s flush cutters for almost three years now, probably because a salesperson hasn’t tried to cut a brake cable with them. Yet. But I’ve been plenty happy with others too. I don’t find it that hard to find a good flush cutter.
