Wera has always had great options in the field of tool storage. They have the “James Bond” driver where the bits are stored in the handle, the new 2go series of cases and storage solutions, not to mention that a ton of the tool sets they make come with high quality boxes, stands or racks.

The World Famous Hazet Tool Trolley Assistent
Gedore has released (to the States) a series pliers designated the TL series. Gedore’s TL (or dipped handle) series provides an inexpensive alternative to the flagship JC (or 2-component handle) series. The JC series still lead the way in Gedore’s pliers’ series, but there is great value in having options.
I love this decision from Gedore to release this series to the US. We are always pleading with all of our German manufacturers to release more product to the US (especially lower cost options). This is an awesome step from Gedore for us and our customers.

Double Click Grey. That was the winner when deciding what color to repaint the front office space earlier this summer. It’s amazing what a coat of paint can do to a room. The paint segued into various other office improvements — perhaps the most important of which was a cork dartboard.
