View Full Version : Discount tools & supplies sources

Just got back from picking up my BRAND NEW IMBEL GEAR LOGO receiver and walked down the block to a hobby shop. They have an extensive department dedicated to jewelry making. Many of the tools and supplies used are the same if not similar to what we use. ie. swiss pattern files, pliers, buffing wheels, polish, india stones etc. I was most gratified to pick up a tube of silver braze paste (.5 troy ozs) for $5.41. I'm told that 1 troy ounce is more than a standard ounce. This stuff melts at 1145 degrees, comes in a syringe with a fine "needle" to put the stuff right where you need it.
Only time will tell though
I need a smoke after that.:D
