PutnamEco Posted June 23, 2012 Report Share Posted June 23, 2012 What tool companies do you find interesting?Here are a few of my favorites.FastcapI really like their Pro Carpenter Old Standby tape measure. It is my favorite tape measure to use when I'm doing bench work or for around the shop. Fastcap has a lot of interesting tools, I can't say they are good tools (most seem to be made in China) but I will say I do find them interesting. Tools like their Pocket Chisels, Long Nose Marker, and KnukleBender show some innovative thinking, by what appears to be someone who may have actually spent some time on a jobsite.Tajima I will definitely vouch for a few of Tajimas tools. Their Chalk-Rite chalk boxes are good. I have had excellent results using them. They use a braided line rather than the more common cotton string that comes with the chalk boxes you might usually find, this tends to leave a thinner line, which I find more accurate. They also make an ink box for those inclined to go that route. I'll also recommend their premium Convoy caulk guns which are very easy to use even with the thickest caulking compounds. Lastly, I'll also recommend their Snap Blade Knives which are as good as any of the other snap bladed knives on the marketEurekazoneWhile I don't use their products, I do love their home grown inventiveness. The founder Dino Makropuolos always comes up with some really creative ideas, and is very enthusiastic about promoting them. They have produced some interesting and informative YouTube videos as well. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
