    Just a couple of tools.......

    I just made a couple of tools up, one, for drilling the stick pens that I'm making (Snowman Pens).........

    I was able to get some L-O-N-G 3mm drill bits, so I put a handle on the bit, makes it a LOT nicer to use.

    The second item is a "Brand" I made up, I just use a stylized "SA" my initials to sign my work, but until now, I've been using an old screwdriver, and just heating it up to make the four burns, now I made up this brand to do the same thing.....

    Works well, and is MUCH easier to get a good looking brand each time.

    You can see the "S A" on the block just behind the branding iron.

    Great job Stu. Those look like they fit the bill just fine.
