Dasco Pro has been hand forging and selling tools for carpentry, masonry, and demolition since 1922. The Dasco brand incorporates times tested design, superior materials and distinguishing technology into a broad range of high quality tools for construction professionals, home improvement enthusiasts, and hobbyists alike. Our tools are crafted with High Carbon Steel from the USA for ultimate durability and strength. Each tool is hand ground and polished by skilled craftsmen and heat treated to meet ASME standards.
The upset head on the largest striking tools was developed and trademarked as Targethead tools in 1948. This feature gives a large surface to strike and allows protection to the hand holding the tool. The Dasco Pro TargetGuard® tool holder is featured on all of our best selling Targethead® struck tools. The TargetGuard® offers a 3 ¾” circle of protection against glancing blows and missed hits. Our TargetGuard® is made of a special blend of durable molded plastic that is permanently force-fit around the shaft of select striking tools and is a Dasco Pro exclusive. It features a full 360-degree handhold for a firm, comfortable grip.
Vaughan & Bushnell Manufacturing Co. is a world leader in the production and sale of hand tools, including hammers and prybars, is pleased to announce that it has acquired substantially all the assets of Dasco Pro Inc.
“We are extremely excited about our acquisition of Dasco and combining these two great, venerable American companies” says Charlie Vaughan, company President. “This acquisition will expand our product offering within the same growing retail category, generate further economies of scale for our ‘Made in the USA’ manufacturing, and strengthen our competitive advantage against other tool manufacturers, both domestic and foreign”.
One of the worlds largest producers of hammers and striking tools, Vaughan also has the distinct honor of being one of America’s oldest tool companies. Founded in 1869, this 5th generation, family owned company pioneered the design and innovation behind what we know today as the modern hammer. Along the way they helped shape an entire industry and defined what quality, well-balanced tools should be. Proudly “Made in the USA” for more than 150 years.
