Elzetta on Anodization

Have you ever wondered why some anodized surfaces seem to scratch just by looking at them while others are downright difficult to scratch? Not all anodization types are created equal. Dave from Elzetta tells you why in the latest video in their excellent flashlight education video blog series.

If you are looking for a compact and easy to carry way to keep whatever type of screw driver you could ever need in your EDC or range kit, check out the QiBit. QiBit is a keychain sized, mini bit driver that accepts common 1/4″ screw diver bits. It is machined from solid 6061-T6 aluminum, hard coat anodized, and retains the bit via an internal o-ring.

One of the most innovative features of the QiBit are its dual angle wrench flats. There are parallel flats for use with a standard 1/2″ wrench or adjustable wrench and angled flats that are perfect for gripping with a multitool.

The potential for a compact driver like this is endless. Your local hardware store probably sells a near endless array of bits. You could pack it with shorter bits for general use and tight spaces or with longer bits for when a bit of extra reach is required. While the intended use is EDC, I would love to have something like this in a compact range kit that could be used to keep a carbine up and running during a carbine course without taking up much space.

Massive Independence Day Markdown on Smith & Bradley Sans-13

Smith_Bradley_Sans_13_Detail

I am still wearing my Smith & Bradley Sans-13 watch daily. It has served me very well and I can recommend it to anyone looking for an American made “tool watch” – especially when they are marked down from $399 to $235 to celebrate Independence Day!

The special pricing is good through the 4th of July. The website says that only 50 watches will be sold at the special pricing but if you mention that you came from JTT in the comments of your order, Smith & Bradley will make sure you get the special pricing.

Check out the Sans-13 at a special price.
