Klein Tools Turns 150!

klein_tshirt.jpgKlein Tools, makers of some great hand tools (mostly geared towards electricians), turns 150 this year. It's quite a milestone and to mark the event, they're selling a t-shirt that reads, "My Tool is 150 years old...and still works!" You'd think that with a century and a half to think about it, they'd come up with something better, but apparently not.

It sure doesn't beat the guy we once saw on a paving crew with a shirt that read, "I'm the man from Nantucket."

Regardless of their t-shirt writing abilities, it's worth checking out their line of tools. They're on the expensive side, but they're worth it.
