Tool Chess sets are 32 handsome, handcrafted chess pieces served in a tool chest carrying case. They are made in beautiful Grand Rapids, Michigan by myself and my father. Tool Chess pieces are handcrafted out of everyday hardware pieces that are powder-coated, giving them a beautiful finish. They're quite hefty.

Tool Chess was invented around the time the family business -- a machine tool business based in Grand Rapids, Michigan called Gallmeyer and Livingston -- was closing down. A couple shop workers replaced a lost chess piece with some hardware pieces and my grandpa thought up the name "Tool Chess."

Returns Policy

Tool Chess sets are packaged to exacting standards to prevent the sometimes-bumpy USPS ride from getting the best of your brand new pieces. We have not had any problems since instituting our new packaging policy. That being said, if something does go wrong, we will work with you to make it right.
