Aircraft Tools by

Welcome to our site with aircraft tools for all aviation projects to help you build your dreams, expand your passion for homebuilt aircraft and share a most rewarding experience with friends and family. 

We have been in the aviation business since the mid-1970's.  Our history of manufacturing aircraft sheet metal parts and assemblies along with engine STC's gives us first hand experience with all tools.  No other homebuilt tool kit provider can claim this experience.

Isham Inc. continues to grow partnerships with major industrial partners in order to provide the highest quality aircraft tools for our customers.  Distributorship's with Klein Tools, Snap-On Industrial, Stanley and many other industrial tool suppliers make up our line of aircraft tools.  Isham Inc. also designs, manufactures and distributes their own specialty tools for general aviation, experimental homebuilt airplanes and the commercial airline industry.

The Isham Inc. RV Tool Kit is around the globe.  Our aircraft tools are used in the USA, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Portugal, Africa, Saudi Arabia, Iceland, Netherlands, South America, Sweden and many other countries.  If you need a complete sheet metal tool kit for your Vans RV aircraft please contact us before you decide to purchase any tools.  We will save you a lot of money on the highest quality, and most complete tool kit delivered to your door.  Alternately, we may be able to arrange to have your tools included with the shipment of your Vans RV airplane kit.  (This does not apply if you order the empennage only kit from Van's due to packaging requirements.)

Isham Inc. is the very best aircraft tool kit supplier for sheet metal, general aviation, RV airplanes and commercial aircraft tools.  Our tools are for building new aircraft, completing aircraft sheet metal modifications, and for airplane maintenance. 

Many aircraft builders are not aware that avery tools stopped doing business.  Avery tools was a good competitor and now that the Avery's have retired there is a gap in aircraft tool suppliers.  Our products include most of the special aircraft tool kits that Avery tools used to offer.  We wish the folks from Avery tools the very best in their retirement.

We include the Experimental Aero DRDT-2 dimpler in our product line.  This machine makes perfect dimples and is very quiet, unlike the mallet type. The DRDT-2 will be a great addition to your shop.  Isham Inc. also carries a full line of pneumatic compression rivet squeezers including C-squeezers and A-squeezers.
