Tools – 

JAC September Blog Carnival


This post is for the blog carnival (blog hop) at the Jewelry Artisans Community and it’s all about tools, the ones I have, the ones I use a lot, the ones I made myself or my hubby and those that are still on my wishlist.
I have a lot of tools that I bought and I still haven’t used them.
I bought a few drawplates years ago to draw wire trough to get different shaped wires.
I think I used them once or twice. So far I counted 3 bench vises, tons of pliers, a jewelers saw, a loom, a torch and so on.
