You can’t buy one of these anymore,
but I thought it would be an enjoyable review.
This is a tool I acquired from my Father-in-law after he sold his house.
He was thinning out his things, & I ran across this in a box of stuff.
I have used this tool to make a multitude of things. I even made a 20’ long chain for my dog.
There’s no end to what you can make with it.
I found this order blank in its box. Its price was $3 postage paid.
Quite a deal wasn’t it!
The box has two 7 cent stamps on it. This was around 1958
You can’t make a nice chain like this with a pliers.
I did a search for this tool on Google, & I couldn’t find a place you could buy one of these tools.
I guess the company no longer exists.
If you ever see one of these at a flea market, buy it, because you’ll have a lot of fun with it.
I did find this old magazine article about it, which is kind of interesting.
