I've tried many tools and supplies over the years. You would not believe the pile of reject tools and supplies I have in my studio. Lucky for you the searching and testing is already done. I will only sell the tools that I would want for my own studio.

Please feel free to send me messages with questions on how to make or find the things you need.
