Jewelry Tool Tips

Tools are your livelihood. More is not necessarily better, but better quality is best. American and European jewelry tools are better quality and will last a lot longer, even though the initial investment is higher. When you buy cheap, generally you buy twice.

A small irritation like a saw frame constantly "letting go" of the saw blade can quickly add up to hours wasted, not to mention the cost of broken blades and irritation of starting again. This causes productivity to be lost and that equals money loss.

Always keep your tools in good working condition. Remove rust or metal particles from your roller on a regular basis to prevent pitting. Oil moving parts. Clean and look after your jewelry tools. Sharpen or replace drill bits when blunt. Well maintained tools make for good workmanship

Organizing jewelry tools is vital. Keep your burr box organized in graduating sizes. Be consistent in packing your tools back in it's place after use. The time putting tools back after use is much shorter than time spent looking for them when they are misplaced. It makes you very efficient and add to the flow of your motions. Many an hour is wasted in a Jewelry Workshop searching for miss-placed tools.

Most of the larger jewelry suppliers will gladly advise you on the jewelry tools needed for your projects. For the American market we can highly recommend Rio Grande and Stuller for their vast selection of jewelry tools and quality product. Otto Frei , Gesswein  and Fischer are our supplier in Europe.
