Metalwork for Poets

Many electronics enthusiasts hate metalwork. If they were to take a longer and more thoughtful look at their pet hate, they would realise that what they actually hate is attempting to do metalwork with poor tools. A skilled worker can produce good work despite poor tools, but would far rather use the best. Beginners do not have this level of expertise, and need all the help that they can get, so they need good tools. Buy the best that you can’t quite afford. Good tools last a lifetime, and not only are they cheaper in the long run, but they’re a pleasure to use.
