Tell me is it not real jewelry if you do not have a 1 million dollar
fabricating set up?
LOL you don’t need to spend a lot of money to have a professional
The more money you spend the faster you can make.
Jewellers I know have the deepest pockets and shortest arm of any
trade I know.
A good soldering torch is a must.
So are files.
So are mandrils.
So are hammers, 1 planishing and one leather will do.
Some basic pliers yes.
After that who knows, hardware stores are good.
I think a workshop could be set up for less than a set of quality
golf clubs, my putter cost $150
and there are 10 other clubs and shoes and bag and club fees and
green fees etc.
What about fishing, my first workshop cost less than my boat and
I built my benches a tenth of the price of buying a jewellery bench.
Pickle pot $300 forget it baby bottle warmer $70 or a croc pot maybe
Ultrasonic no, detergent and warm water with a scrubout brush.
So Orchidians how much and what tool list can we post for newbies.
Think the least amount of tool money to make a piece of quality.
Come on Charles and Leonid and Gerry and Jo and Agnes etc. What did
you have when you started? Was the quality worse or only more time
Tool companies are into selling tools. And yes if I had the money I
would buy one of everything.
