Etsy Metal Blog Carnival: Tools are cool

I want I want I want. This months topic: most coveted tool.

Until this week a rolling mill would have been on the top of my list, but alas, my flex shaft broke (Super Sad Face)! I'm not surprised, it was a cheapo model that I've had for almost four years. I never knew how much I loved my flex shaft until I had to work without it. The things we take for granted. So for now, my most coveted tool is a new Foredom with all the bells and whistles, but at this point I would settle for another one from harbor freight.

If I want to wish really big I'll go ahead and wish for a rolling mill, guillotine shear, hydraulic press, set of stakes and a kiln wrapped up and delivered to my door along with my new and never again to be undervalued flex shaft.... it's always nice to dream! And what would I do with all those shiny new additions? I would surface detail to death. Who knows where they would take me, but I'm sure it would be wonderful.

Check out what other Etsy Metal members have their eyes on:


  1. So sorry abou the flex shaft. I would be a fish out of water without mine. You just reminded me that I want a very expensive set of stakes as well...

    Great post!

  2. ooh i really want a bench shear too! i'd forgotten about that. had it on my 'list' for a while now. but no where to put one :(

    and yes, flexshaft is such a fabulous tool.
