13 April 2015 - 3 new items from EuroTool:

Steel Riveting Block With our new Steel Riveting Block, there is no more guesswork on the length of wire to be cut. Use the holes at the top to pre-cut the perfect length of wire for your projects. The holes in the middle are about 1.8mm deep, thus every cut is just the right amount of wire needed to create "head" on both sides. The dimples on the left side are used for support when riveting in order to hold the shape of the rounded rivet head. The circles on the right side are for riveting eyelets in 3 different sizes without flattening the rounded rims. Dimples on the side of the block are for rivets and on the opposite side are circles for eyelets. Both of these sides are for CURVED surfaces and must be mounted in a vise. Item # ANV-120.00 $ 46.50
9 head Nylon Hammer Our nylon tipped forming hammer has an all-metal head with changeable nylon faces that will not mar your metal. The set includes nine nylon peg inserts in a variety of shapes that are easily changed and secured by a set-screw. Perfect for raising, planishing and embossing work. Hammer weight 4 oz with two nylon tips attached. Overall length 9.5 inches. Item # HAM-485.00 $ 21.95
4-hole rivetting punch Create holes for wire rivets in 18, 16, 14 and 12 gauge. Punch holes up to 18 gauge metal sheets or multiple metal sheets together with ease. Item # PUN-420.04 $ 62.50


30 March 2015 - A very special thanks to those who came and saw us at the Fraser Valley Bead Show this past weekend at the Gizeh Shriners' Hall in Burnaby.
