I can't seem to stop looking at tools or buying them and every time a new tool comes out, I get that little rush of heat and my heart beats faster....and I WANT it.
Call it obsession, addiction, passion (I go with the latter).....it's bad.
HOWEVER, I haven't bought a new tool in
(Ha, ha, I just realized how funny that is - 'small things' - many jewelers tools are small, but that doesn't mean they aren't pricey!)
Due to a lack of funds my tool buying HAS actually really slowed down and will continue to dwindle while I work on selling off some inventory. AND as I strive to save funds for some home projects that we desperately want to get done.
But that doesn't mean I'm DEAD! It doesn't mean I can't look.
What were my most recent purchases?
A basic benchmate.
A really nice convenience. I suspect I will add to it over time.
A new optivsor
Quick change graver handle
(and 3 new gravers to go with it)
So I wonder, what is your reaction when you find a new tool ?
- You patiently wait for detailed information and test reviews
- You hurry up and order it before it's on back-order
- You wait for your friend to buy it, she buys everything
- You figure out how to McGyver your own
- New tools - BAH! I just use the basics
And just to play devil's advocate - take a look at some of the latest catalog additions at:
