The Tools of the J. A. Stein Company

This is sort of an endorsement, and I am sure many of you guys have come across this before, but I have had amazing luck with the handmade tools from the J.A. Stein Company.

I also did a review of one of his tools here:

Anyway, the are tools for a very specific need....and with my small shop they paid for themselves after a few uses. We all know that with tools, you get what you pay for.

I have an assortment of his tools, and I like every one of them.
Another thing I like is that if you ever have any questions or concerns about using any of his tools, James responds to e-mails almost immediately.
It's all good stuff.

I'll try calling sometime. There is at least a couple tools that have become really hard to find I wanted to ask about.

Mostly those headset locknut wrenches and the pro hyper handle cog whip things.
