He is the weird creature in Lord of the Rings, that was so obsessed by the ring, that everything he did was controlled by it, and he loved it so much he talked to it with this mad gaze in his eyes, and called it his precious. Tool hoe, like me, would sure behave like he did :lol: You really need to see the movie to get the connection. :)

Oh, Okay. I didn't watch any of those. But now that makes much more sense. Thank-you.

So many tools, so little time.......
 
I have so many tools, where to begin........I have to say I recently splurged and bought a Carlo Dona bellflower press. I love that I can use the last of my oxygen making great little flowers but not have to worry about losing lots of glass if I run out.

Well this is an old thread but I have to comment. I love tools! I have more than 20 presses and rollers that I use. I tend to go in spurts. Right now I am in love with my Bavarian beads heart press 3d. I also just got a butterfly wing press from Perlenpresse that is taking some getting use to but I really like it. I do bulk buy's to Perlenpresse often so if I get something I don't like I just sell it and buy something else. The tools I cant live without though are my Perlenpresse round bead roller. My Perlenpresse straight sided lentil trio. I also like my fine tungsten pick and my brass knife. I usually have 3 or 4 presses plus a bunch of shaping tools on my workbench ever time I work.

The bavarian bead heart press is one of my favs as well. Although the one I use the most is my CGbeadrollers.

Great Idea and sure beats pulling twisties or stringers.:shock:

I find that I lose interest in about half the tools as other designs become available from different tool makers. NOW I completely understand hubby with at least a dozen hammers, saws etc. All called by the same tool name but different.

We just had a Harbor Freight move into our town. Can you say THRILLED!!!!!\\:D/:waving::fireblob::happy:
