A Great German Tool And A Great Cause

Get Your $5 Felo Screwdriver To Benefit Cultivate KC 

KC Tool takes great pride in the tools we sell, but you know that already. What you may not know is that we are deeply devoted to our beloved Kansas City and that we all LOVE to eat. So when the opportunity arises to combine three of our passions, it is only natural that we take part.

Cultivate KC is a local Kansas City non-profit that works to grow food, farms and families by not only improving the city’s food scene but also by educating and connecting local growers. We love this concept and we want to help them achieve their goals.

BUT, we also want you to get the great German quality tools you know and love at the same time. The normal price of a Felo No. 2 Phillips screwdriver is over 11 bucks, but from now until the end of August 2018 we are discounting it to five dollars, WITH ALL PROCEEDS going to Cultivate KC.

We hope you will take advantage of this great deal and this opportunity for us to give back to our community. We also know that it may be a stretch to ask you to help one of our local charities. If you choose not to take advantage, please take a moment to consider giving 5 dollars to something you believe in. A little bit can go along way in helping other people.

A Brief Guide to Torx and Its (Many) Variations

­­We have discussed previously on this blog about the highly specific “Pentalobe” screw head and the tools used in conjunction. The Pentalobe shape is a relatively new invention compared to one its cousins, the Hexalobular screw, which many people call a star or Torx. Torx is actually a trademark of Camcar Textron, so the use of its name is another example of genericized trademark, like we use the term Allen Wrench for Hex Keys.Read More »

Royal Savings on Felo Tools @ KC Tool

KC Royals ESPN

Despite our focus on German tools, our namesake is based on the wonderful city which we call home: Kansas City. Autumn in KC is marked by the change in fall foliage, cool crisp air, and the world famous American Royal. Postseason baseball can now be added to that list as the Kansas City Royals make their second consecutive appearance in the World Series. Despite a heartbreaking Game 7 bottom of the 9th loss in 2014, the Boys in Blue were resilient over the course of the 2015 regular season securing their spot in The Fall Classic.

Up until last year there had been a 29 year drought in Royals postseason baseball. Instead of Netflix vs. Hulu it was VHS vs. Betamax. The original Nintendo system was introduced in the United States in October 1985.  We are glad to see our ball club back in the spotlight.
