About Nub Tools

Nub Tools sprung out of the founder’s first business, Irving Customs (RIP), established in 2005. There at Irving Customs, David Irving provided welding, machining, and handmade motorcycle and automotive custom parts for his customer's dream projects.

Previous to this venture David worked under the mentorship of the legendary top fuel drag bike racer, Sam Wills, of Racing Innovations. At Racing Innovations, David absorbed every ounce of what he could and began nurturing his skills in welding, machining, fabrication and mechanical design. It was here that his first inventions and eye for mechanical solutions developed, which led to his patented valve spring compressor for Harley-Davidson engines.

In 2008, the Harley Valve Spring Compressor was debuted on the Speed Channel and voted as one of the top new inventions of the industry at the late 2008 V-Twin Expo. Since then, Nub Tools has been providing the solution for Harley-Davidson mechanics worldwide who needed an easy to use, safer and more versatile Harley valve spring compressor.

David later developed his career as a CNC Machinist and Engineer in the areo-space industry. From there, his interest in production CNC manufacturing tools grew and recognized that he could provide unique tools to this industry. Since 2016 Nub Tools has been growing and expanding its tooling catalog for machine tools and other shop equipment. 

Today you can find Nub Tools and David on our YouTube Channel and Instagram where he keeps customers and followers up to date on new products and shop projects.
