No Chinese tools for you!

There is not a shortage of outstanding American made tools on the market.    One company producing great tools in the U.S. is Eklind.  Located in Franklin Park, Illinois, Eklind produces what I grew up calling Allen wrenches.  Eklind produces inch and metric Hex and Ball Fold-Up sets, L-Key Sets, individual L keys, T-Key Sets, individual T keys as well as Screwdriver Sets.  Last weekend I purchased a very sturdy and stylish Eklind Hex-L seven piece key set.  The wrenches or keys are stored in a blue plastic carrier which helps keep the keys organized.  Eklind manufactures the keys using fine quality alloy steel which is hardened, tempered and finished to resist rust.  You will sleep better at night knowing that all Eklind keys meet or exceed ANSI B18.3 and Fed. Spec. GGG-K275D.

The next time you are in the market for a fine set of Allen wrenches, ask for Eklind.
