Its nice to see other people get excited about tools too. Not just bikes. Nothing like a box of tools to tell stories of days saved, but more importantly, of averting those days that need saving.
Good pics. Any stories?
No. Just a days work wrenching.
Great post

Ahhh, wrench porn.

Awesome. I love seeing things like the barber scissors and bent up spoke with unidentified widget on the end of it in the BMC box. It makes me feel better about some of the kludged "tools" I have rolling around in mine.

My vote for PRO is the guy who has a Pedro's box but emptied it out and filled it with his own tools, complete with Novotel pen.

You've got a great eye for pics, I've *really* enjoyed these behind the scenes photos.

Chris Mayhew said...

PS, the widget in the BMC box is a spoke bent to keep two presta to schrader adapters together. What I want to know is what is the tool to the right of it (to the right of the pen)?

Bravo! Now THIS is why I come to BKW. None more PRO.

To the right of Sharpie looks like the top of a Crazy Glue pen.

Good eye Chris. The silver thing between the pen and scissors is a telescoping magnetic pickup like this:

Back at ya, Art. I didn't even realize it telescoped.

a unique look at the mechanics style, some messy and some very neat! I still personally like Jose from Srams set up using the Chicago Case company suit case!

" Don't worry my Dad's a TV repairman... he's got a killer set of tools..." God, these pics make me want to go wrench again. I may have to load up my Howe case just for old times sake.... great site as always, keep it up!
