Hello Bill

Glad that you are making this much needed socket. It is almost impossible to get the housings off with out one. I stated much earlier that I made one years ago and have been rebuilding carburetors for many years. I wish I could have bought one of yours years ago. Put me down for one. Thanks.

Many thanks to you folks for your interest in this socket. The list seems to keep growing and my son is working on getting things in line to start making these sockets in the next 2 weeks. Thanks again. Bill Haag Sr.

I have had a number of people who are following this thread, contact me outside this thread. I believe I have confirmed with everyone. As long as you have received a pm or email from me confirming you are on the list, you will receive the sockets you have requested as soon as they are ready. If for some reason you have not received a confirmation from me, please let me know.

Thank you all for your interest,

Bill Haag

Smog tech, I did send you a confirmation via private message. If you did not receive it there for some reason, consider this your confirmation for 1 socket as soon as they are complete.

Ok folks, minor update but I did say I would keep everyone updated throughout this process.

I did receive the specialized tooling for this project today. Not the blanks, just the tooling.

I have spent the last 3 hours setting up an open machine for doing the broach work/making the 6 point hex part of this project. I will have to take this setup down until I receive the blanks and actually do the work, but it looks as though tooling wise we are good to go.

The blanks have been ordered, just not sure yet when I will receive them. But as soon as we have them we will get underway with annealing and such so we can start making the sockets.

Thank you all once again for your interest, and I feel honored to be part of this.

Obviously to some of you folks this is probably irrelevant to some degree, but we are moving forward, and I for one am anxious to get these things done and in everyones hands who expressed interest.

Hope you all are doing well, and I will continue to update, even though minor, as this project proceeds.

One other thing I would like to mention. Since I have been on this site I have randomly checked out other threads/discussions. I would like to thank each and every one of you for not turning this thread into some sort of crazy discussion other than what it originally started out as.........a socket. Not a bunch of other crap......well of course other than the walmart socket set comment.

Anyway, thank you all, we will see this through within the next few weeks.

Bill

I still keep getting pm's regarding price and such for this socket from people just reading this thread. If you are new to this thread and have any questions regarding price and purchasing or what have you, please read back to post #65 where I posted the pricing and rough details regarding how we are going to go about this.

For all you folks already on the list, I have been amazed how much interest there is. What we thought was going to be maybe 20-25 sockets, as you can imagine if you have followed this post, has been blown out of the water. Needless to say we are going to make a rather substantial run at this point figuring there will probably be residual interest once word continues to spread.

I did check back into making these in quantity by a couple of reputable US manufacturers, however the minimum quantity would be 5000/10,000 pieces. Now there has been an unbelievable interest in these at this point, but no where close to supporting a run of 5000.

We are going to run 150, and more after that if interest warrants doing so. This will still barely pay for all the tooling and such, but as I said before, this is a labor of love and bragging rights more so than making money at this point.

Hope everyone is doing well, and again, thank you for your interest in this project.

Bill
