So, I've been hitting Kickstarter pretty hard again (there will be some more re-previews of cool projects coming up), and I struck a deal with the folks behind this bad-assed tool to see if I could drum up some more interest for them. This is the Cole-Bar multifunction hammer.
CNC milled from a block of steel, the hammer has a serious industrial look to it, but it is a lot more than just a hard looking claw hammer.
It's a claw hammer with a full crow bar built in!
The production model includes a rubberised grip on the hammer side of the shaft.
The straight edges are inch-maked for use as a ruler (although having it in metric too would be a good addition, I'll put that out there)
Using a patented locking gear mechanism, the Cole-Bar can be opened and extended from 0 to 180 degrees and locked into place at 15 degree increments.
As well as making an angled too, this also makes the tool a protractor, and set-square for all you equipped masons out there
The locking gear is connected by a
standard 1/2" drive which lets you use the Cole-Bar as a socket wrench.
Further more, that same 1/2" drive the Cole-Bar can be separated with a button release turning it into a set of demolition tools.
I'm looking forwards to comparing this to my Stanley FUBAR and Dead-On Superhammer
Claw hammer, full sized crow bar, socket wrench, ruler, set-square and protractor this is a truly multifunction tool, that I am proud to get behind .... Now to get it over the line, and into my paws to hammer and pry!
Get to backing, hopefully you can get one too...
edit: Brandon just sent me some renders of the finished product, which Kickstarter wouldn't allow ... get a peek here, FIRST!
