Kinco #1939KWP – Gloves

A review of Gloves? Yes, gloves are in my toolbox and there’s a reason I was motivated to add these to the site.

Tool: Kinco #1939KWP Winter Work Gloves.

Description: These Kinco winter gloves are mostly leather. The leather is nice and soft. The backs are bright yellow nylon with a highly reflective safety strip sewn on. They are moderately padded with “HeatKeep”® Insulation. Sewn next to the “HeatKeep” label is another quite interesting label that says “WATERPROOF”. That’s the label that prompted my purchase and later this online review. Continue reading Kinco #1939KWP – Gloves

Guess what tool I needed but didn’t have with me today! Since I emptied and removed my truck boxes to move something huge, I haven’t quite returned all the tools to the box. I’ve been carrying nearly 100 hand tools for the past forever and thought I’d go through them and carry just what I need. Today I needed a sheetrock saw and didn’t have one with me so I used a razor knife.

I recently added the Allway Tools Handy Saw to as one of the tools in my red toolbox. That Handy Saw I had owned since I was a youngin’. I dicsovered I also own this very old Allway Tools hand saw. Continue reading Allway Tools Antique Handy Saw

Tool: Workforce 16 ounce Hammer

I keep a few spare hammers in My Red Toolbox. This Workforce hammer cost a few dollars at a nearby Depot and has rarely, if ever, been used.

I don’t need to say much about it except that as an employer I find myself lending a hammer to unskilled labor from time to time. Lending tools isn’t a big favorite of mine but when it’s a $7 hammer I have no qualms. I bought 3 hammers for less than $20 and found that one has become my day-to-day 16oz hammer.

This wooden handled 16 oz. Workforce Hammer is just along for the ride as a spare in My Red Toolbox.

On display –> one discontinued spare part from My Red Toolbox. I carry a replacement handle for my favorite wood hammers; the Hart Tool Co. Hickory Framing Hammer. Displaying an unused spare hammer handle in April of 2009 is a testament to the durability of the Hart Tool Company hammers, which have been manufactured under a different name for years.
