The Right Stuff…

Just as every good cook likes a well-equipped kitchen, every metalsmith will find it advantageous to have good tools.  Over the years I have accumulated  beautiful hammers and stakes, files and other jewelry-making tools, but when I saw these new tools by Jay Whaley, I knew these would be important additions to my collection and that they would be extremely helpful in jewelry-making tasks.  If you cut bezel, hammer rivets, saw wire and tubes, cut ring shanks, etc., you might find these tools of interest.  Jay has videos that demonstrate how to use the ring gauge, sliding hammer, hand vise, and bezel shears (shown here) as well as other tools.  I bought these tools at Ottofrei.com and I know they will save me a lot of time, effort, and frustration.  Of course, I’ll have to clean my workbench first…it’s next to impossible to find anything in this clutter!
