I suppose press releases like this tend to find their way to the bottom of the pile at CNN, but here at Toolmonger, it’s news: In 2007, Stanley Proto will turn 100. They’ve released a commerative logo (above), and they’re planning some themed product launches throughout the year.
If you’re in the aircraft or large machinery business, you’ve most certainly heard of Proto, but if you’re a DIYer, you might have missed them. If so, zip over and check out their website — they make industrial tools, including some very large wrenches as well as very high quality lifetime-warrantied mechanics’ sets and hand tools.
