Jett set


#1

For what it’s worth, thermoplastic was available years ago (and most
likely still is) in sheets for use by orthotists and physical
therapists, who used it to make custom-molded splints and braces. I
mention this because this product may be more reasonably priced for
the health care industry than it is for jewelers (isn’t everything?) .
Back in the days when I was involved with this stuff, I remember it
being offered by a company called Fred Sammons, Inc.

I could be wrong, but it would surprise me if the health industry got
a better break on prices. I see it usually go like this:

1. needle nose pliers for hobbyis - $6.50
2. needle nose pliers for auto mechanic - $18.00
3. needle nose pliers for jeweler - $27.00
4. needle nose pliers for orthidontist - $60.00
