Tool News - Top Saw Pocket Wrench

RATE THIS:

If you're the kind of woodworker who prefers to get his or her wood not at the lumber yard, but in your own backyard, you might want to consider the Top Saw pocket wrench.


The Pocket Wrench is a hand tool that has 8 tools in it to allow the user to work on a chainsaw in the field.  The tool easily fits in a pocket (4 ½” long) and contains a large screwdriver for bar adjustment, a T27 Torx for all bolts on a Stihl chainsaw, a small screwdriver (for fuel and bar oil adjustment), a 4mm Allen Wrench (for work on Echo and Husqvarna saws), and has a 13mm (1/2”) socket that will fit a bar nut on a half or full wrap handle Husqvarna saw.  The other end of the tool has a 19mm deep socket that can be reversed with a 16mm deep socket for the spark plug on all saws and a bar nut on a Stihl saw.


The tool was invented by Colfax High School math teacher Johathan Schwartz, who was featured in American Woodworker's School News department for restarting his high school's woodworking program. More information is available here.
