Abbey Bike Tools Announces 3 New Shop Quality Tools
@YoKev: @YoKev: this is a very niche market tho. they arent making batches of hundred and hundreds of parts. ive made custom hammers before and even at batch of a 100 i have to sell them for over $100 to make any profit. also i have a couple snap on dead blows that were over $120. They are a company and they need to make money to keep going. Im not saying they arent expensive or there isnt anything they could do to bring the price down. some of their stuff i do think its high but overall looking at the parts it seems inline.

@shameless0tool: too everyone down voting for shameless0tool comment he knows what hes talking about. As a machinist who has worked with him on making bike tools we can say first hand making stuff in america isnt cheap. yea these prices are high but this is what it cost. These are crazy high volume number parts. these are small batches of high end stuff. go ahead and talk to you local anodizer and see what that cost if you want an idea on a small portion of the cost that go into these type of things.

@swan3609: i still really want a tacoma but not ready to cough of the taco tax for one. ive still got my 4runner gotta fix a few things on it but its prob gonna go up for sale unless i can convince my wifes to let me have 3 vehicles. if i keep it i got that long travel kit i was working on for it. its not as nice as a truck but i can still get a 4x8 sheet in the back with a little hanging out so it works
