I'm in for one. PM or email me when they are done. No hurry as my primary interest is supporting the hobby.

Personalized sockets? Wow, that would be cool..... a socket with my name stamped in it before it is heat treated and plated. Not asking for this HAAG, just blue skying it.
Looking forward to the first release of these, signaling the start of what has been beautiful to watch grow and come to fruition. Advancing the hobby and filling a need.
Well done everyone!

Jax,

Need to clarify something. These sockets are heat treated and tempered. NOT PLATED. They will come dark brown or black from heat treating with no surface finish as shown in the pictures earlier in the thread.

Not plated is fine with me. Most of my "specialty" sockets are not plated, just black.

We are behind you 100% Bill!

Bill, i understand they will not be plated..again blue skying. I did not expect them to be other than black or whatever color they turn out to be. I am just looking forward to when they are available and you are making some money ;-)

you guys who are thinking about personalizing will be able to stamp them yourselves after you get them...................of course if you wish to pay a premium to have me personalize them, lol, make me a generous offer, lol.

Hope all you folks are doing well.

I'm not trying to sound like a wiseacre, just trying to emphasize we need to support those that support the hobby. Maybe on down the line he or someone else will come up with another much-needed tool for Model "A" service.




I do understand...heard things about Sears but not really the details. Just trying to be helpful.
I do agree about helping those specializing in the hobby...no offense taken.

Another minor update on the sockets.

Work schedule has been very busy, as well as motorcycle racing season for my two sons has started. Anyone familiar with flat track motorcycle racing will know how much time it takes to keep 4 hi performance bikes running for every weekend. Good thing is we do not have a race for 2 weeks, so I will have plenty of time to re-focus on these sockets.

In any event I almost have all of the sockets broached. I should be able to finish the rest, and start the stamping process this week. Once the stamping is done, they will get heat treat and temper which is relatively a quick process, then they will be ready to go.

I am trying to set up a web page through my business site in order to simplify the ordering process to able to use paypal or credit card. I understand some people want to pay by check which is fine, and I will give the details on how to do that when we send the notices that the parts are ready to ship.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Bill

Obviously time for an update.

This project has proven to be a bit more time and tooling consuming than originally thought.

We decided to run 150 pieces minimum for the first run. I have all but the last 20 or so broached. Due to work, racing season, family and other reasons, I have not made the progress I thought I would make.

At this point I am considering finishing the broaching, then hardening, quench and temper, and not doing the stamping which will no doubt take considerable time.

If I skip the stamping I should be able to have the sockets done in the next few weeks.

Hopefully everyone is ok with this, and I assure you the functionality of the finished product will be above expectations.

Should you have any questions please post to this thread, or pm/email me directly.

Hope all is well.

Bill

I'd be overjoyed with socket stamped or not. As a matter of fact if it is un-stamped it would still standout as special since all the others in the tool box are stamped.

Thank you Haag for your updates! Would be nice to have it stamped but understand time, family and work commitments. I would prefer stamped but would be happy either way. Thanks again for your time on this project. Jim
