General Purpose Tools

X-treme Geek

Cool stuff catalog

This mail order supply carries more Cool Tool items than anywhere I’ve seen. I’ve also found more items here that I would like to try for Cool Tools than anywhere else. The outfit sells clever stuff, most of it not ridiculous prestige and life-style crap, but honest attempts to be useful. Like its competitor Think Geek, X-treme Geek favors products that are high tech, slightly unusual, maybe hackable, and certainly ingenious. However X-treme has a wider range of stuff than Think Geek. I really enjoy browsing their large-format, paper catalog.
