Online Tool Store Back in Business
You might remember the Tool Crib of the North tool catalog and website that road the internet wave from 1993 to 1999 when it sold its operations to Amazon. The founders of Tool Crib are back with a new catalog tool business after satisfying a ten-year non-compete agreement with Amazon.
The new business, Acme Tools stocks more than 174,000 products from 3100 manufacturers. I remember the old catalog with great fondness as it was an important source of information for my budding carpentry career. Company executives say the new site includes the same useful information as the old site including in-depth product specs, reviews and useful accessory suggestions. You can shop by tool category, brand or trade specialty. I found the site easy to navigate and fun to look at.
If you spend more than $99, shipping is free until May 31st.
