Moody Tools

Moody Tools is based out of Rhode Island and privately owned.  Part of a conglomerate that owns some wire manufacturing and forming capabilities, you can see why ownership of a company like Moody makes sense. Hardened and ground tools made with high quality steel wire is an excellent base for a driver tool of any type. Moody Tools caters primarily to the electronics business, including applications in electronics repair, computer building, gage repair and the aerospace industry. You may well have never heard of them, but with their wire forming capabilities, they are a much sought after source for private labeling. There are several brand names that Moody makes the business end of the tool for. As such, the Moody line is perfect for the hobby industry. Small tools with precise, well made ends always makes for a low hassle and useful hand tool. "Small" is the key word with moody. They simply don't do large handles; how could you fit the drivers into small places? The two major portions of their line include the Polliccis® and the Acu-Min® line of drivers.

Polliccis drivers are constructed with plastic, static resistant and ergonomic handles. The wire is molded into the handles in most cases. The Acu-Min line has drivers constructed of steel and they are modular. The bits can be replaced and exchanged. For open end wrenches, this can't be beat. RJR Cool Tools. com carries the Polliccis line primarily with the Acu-Min style in key areas. Covering the range of fasteners from slotted to Torx® styles, Moody Tool is a tremendous innovator and has tools made to exacting standards with just the right qualities to work for a long time. However, Moody is a small enough to listen to what you have to say. They have always been more than happy to build special sets for us. We've never had an issue with warranty claims either. Moody is simply a great company to do business with.

JIS (Japanese Phillips) Drivers HQ! – These drivers are the solution to countless modelers and their frustration with "phillips" screws that don't fit right with their ANSI Phillips drivers. You can have the perfect Phillips driver, but there is a different standard in play with these fasteners and it would be called the Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS). The best comparison for JIS to ANSI would be a "Metric" Phillips.

Slotted and Phillips Drivers – Moody was an innovator with the Anti-Static and ergonomic handle called Polliccis. Named after the muscle in your hand that works as you use this driver, this handle has a swivel top and is contoured to fit your hand perfectly. Other manufacturers have copied this design, but one advantage the Moody brand has is that it has a teal green color, which allows it to stand out against other tools. These tools are easy to find, especially for that all important JIS Standard fastener that you run into in a variety of places. At 6" in length, they are also longer than most everyone else, something else to consider when you are driving fasteners in tight places where you need the reach. You probably have thousands of Phillips and slotted drivers in your toolkit already, but Moody has a good value here for the money — in addition to a solid lifetime warranty against failure and premature wear. We also carry the Acu Min line of indexable steel handled drivers too - the classics, if you will!

Torx® Drivers – We receive lots of inquiries for this standard, more often from helicopter pilots. We carry all sizes up to T10 (with narrow or wide shanks) with extended length Polliccis handles. As far as we can find, Moody is the only company offering T1 sized tools!

Straight Hex and (New!) Ball Hex Drivers – New! Indexable Ball Hex drivers are available from Moody Tools! In Inch and Metric, these drivers have an aluminum anodized handle and are in keeping with the Moody tradition. Low price and high quality. Hex drivers are made with what we call a "pencil" style tip. The tips are the same size as the shank and relatively long. When you wear out the tip, simply resharpen it by bumping the worn end into a belt sander or equivalent. You now have a new end very much like resharpening a pencil. With other manufacturers of this type of driver, this is not always the case. Lots of other makers taper the tips of their tools down from a larger shank. The result? If you wear out the end the tool is either useless or at least no longer useful for that size. If you are lucky, the shank is capable of being used for a larger size, but there are a lot of tools out there that utilize a round shank.

Nut Drivers – Utilizing the Polliccis handles and sized for up to ¼" nuts, this line is not meant for high torque applications, but is a high precision tool that helicopter pilots and scale builders can't do without.
