After spending more than 20 years in the hand and power tool sales and service industry Rob Bailey decided to take his knowledge of the industry to the next level. From working in and around just about every kind of metal and woodworking shop in Eastern Washington and North Idaho Rob started designing and building simple core products which all revolve around the same theme. TOUGH. In Rob’s eyes many tools have been in a decline over the past years when it comes to quality and ruggedness. Too many companies reducing materials to cut costs, the lowest price driving the design and function of a tool and not factoring in long term durability. From this perspective of the industry he decided to buck the usual and start up a company whose focus was building tools built for people who appreciate quality.
