An Introduction to Ideal Tools

One of the most impressive brands of American made tools that you can buy is Ideal. Ideal Tools started just over 100 years ago in 1916 with a strong foundation of making tools that were worth more than their sale price and that that value would be because you could rely on these tools to earn your livelihood. Quality was king, and Ideal knew it. Ideal has continued with these old fashioned values as a family owned business up to the present time where tradesmen continue to earn their living with tools that can be trusted.

As Ideal grew over the years, their reputation for quality grew. Tools made by Ideal were used in groundbreaking expeditions to the South Pole in the 30’s and even in NASA’s historic moon landings! After those lofty achievements, they have more than earned their place as a go-to for hand tools with tradesmen of all stripes including electricians, networking and telecom professionals.

The kinds of tools and accessories that Ideal makes for these tradesmen are your standard tool kits, basically combo paks featuring multiple tools at bargain prices. These are an excellent way to build your toolbox. They also make tool bags and pouches, safety equipment, hand tools, power tool accessories, testers, connectors, fishing/conduit paraphernalia, and of course the basic stuff like zip ties and cord organizers. In addition to this, they make a lot of other stuff from the other brands that they’ve acquired over the years.

Ideal Tools has been an American staple since around the time of the Great War and has lasted through the Great Depression and World War II. They’ve done this by not sacrificing quality to make a quick buck, and this uncompromising dedication to quality is what cemented their place in the Haus of Tools.
