Beer and tools come together once again, in the form of these NOS (new old stock) polished aluminum beer stein/coffee mugs being sold by eBay member 2speedyshippers. The seller claims these steins were distributed exclusively by Snap-on dealers in the mid 1980s and are extremely rare. The 5″-tall steins weigh two pounds each, with handles shaped like curved wrenches, and cups shaped like a double-hex drive sockets.

2speedyshippers is auctioning off several of these mugs — the last auction ends May 27, 2008.  I couldn’t find any info about these on the Internet, so if you’ve ever seen one, let us know in comments.

    They look really cool and I wouldn’t mind having a couple but not for that price

    Double hex-drive sockets? You mean square-drive 12 point sockets?

    I want one. I want one a lot. I want the money in my pockets more though. Darn expensive stuff. The first one to end is already over $76 and with more than a day left I’ll bet it easily clears $100 before it’s done.

    I have Three of these that I have bought off ebay.I got them ALOT cheaper and before these guys started selling them.You have to be patient !

    I dont know for sure but I wouldnt be suprised if these guys have access to a CNC machine and are re-making them.They all seem TOO clean for vintage and they ALWAYS have a pair listed.

  5. I have four of the older ones with the double box handles there are very rare and are worth a fortune to the right buyer and if you have the rack that came with the set if anyone is interested in buying drop me a line and we can talk pmcclure1212@gmail.com
