Over the next few weeks/months, I will start to compile a list of some of my tools that I cannot go without.
Just to start it off, my #1 favorite-can’t-do-without file. Barrette Needle File #4 Cut. I use it multiple times a day. Mine is “doctored” up a little, which I will explain in one of the next few blog entries.
Another tool I have grown to love is Dop Wax. I use it to secure pieces when working on them, Holds well, easy to clean up.
My favorite torch for years has been a Smith Mini Torch. Small enough to solder those delicate jobs, powerful enough to attack those bigger jobs.
Smooth Jawed Parallel Pliers are a great tool to hold many pieces without marking them, these are a must.
A Rolling Mill is something that you will want on your wish list. This is an economical option that I use.
A Steam Cleaning Machine is also a must have, this Steam Dragon works great and I have used it for years.
A good Heated Ultrasonic Cleaner is also a must. If you do more than a few pieces at a time, this will work great. If you just do a few pieces at a time, you can get by with a smaller unit.
