Meet our Founder
Mike is our in-house “Tool Geek.” Not only does he know quality when he sees it, he studies the manuals and scrutinizes each tool. If he recommends a particular product, heed his advice.
An Air Force veteran, his background includes various jobs in the construction, electrical and plumbing trades as well as having experience in hardware sales and service. He learned early on that a quality tool helps you get a job done correctly and quicker the first time out. As such, every product SlingShot Tools offers has been hand-selected and tested by Mike.
“There’s a lot that goes into knowing what makes a high-quality tool. How it fits in your hands; the amount of force needed to get the job done. If you are using the correct, high-quality tools – especially in repetitive motions/actions – your body can feel the difference. It can be what helps prevents you from getting carpal tunnel syndrome, developing a shoulder issue or other industry-related injuries.”
