My name is Doug Berglund and I invented the Drummer's Wing Nut Wrench over 30 years ago.
I’ve been playing drums my entire life. Pots & pans at 3 years old, wooden snare by 10. I played in multiple HS and garage bands during my teens. It was all I did in my twenties; much of what I did in my thirties; and a lot of what I still do today. Although, nowadays I play mostly for the fun of it. But for the last 30 years, my main job has been teaching HS & college economics. To be sure, it was never my dream to become an economics teacher - and yes, I love teaching. But distance teaching is not my cup of tea, so after all those years I decided to retire – FROM TEACHING! Now I spend my time devoted to Crabby Tools. Of course, I am still a drummer at heart, and you can always find me either drumming, thinking about drumming, or working on some new music – all the time (Although, I have since learned to NOT drive the family nuts at the dinner table by banging out Ginger Baker licks in between bites).
It was also never my dream to sell wrenches. I always knew that I wanted to create something positive and leave it to the world. I always hoped my contribution would be musical, like a cool drum beat or one of my songs (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8okPFiO4Ro). But as fate would have it, THIS WRENCH has become my contribution to the world (so far), and to drummers everywhere. True, inventing and selling an amazing wrench is a twist of fate I would never have predicted 30 years ago. But here we are. It's a great wrench, and I believe in it, 100%. I use it all the time. Try it, you will, too!
This wrench has many, many uses (I DO list a bunch - 101 Uses). But its MAIN use, the REASON
I invented it, is for helping all those hard-working drummers of the world: this wrench will undoubtedly cut down on both set-up and tear-down times.
And timing ... is everything!
Enjoy the wrench.
Play with confidence.
