A commenter on a public modeling forum complained that the tools he was using were rusting and they had lost their keen edge as well as smooth action. Further discussion revealed that he lived in an the area that was very humid year round and that his workshop wasn’t well ventilated or air conditioned. This probably is the reason for corrosion on his tools, but it could have been easily avoided.
When I first heard that the HMA (Hobby Manufacturer’s Association) was moving the annual iHobby Expo from Chicago (Rosemont), Illinois to Cleveland, Ohio, I was, to say the least underwhelmed. That feeling, however, lasted about 5 minutes. I had to put aside my “creature of habit” attitude and realize that a new venue is good for everyone — especially the consumers in the Cleveland area that will have the opportunity to experience this event and meet with major hobby product manufacturers (like Xuron Corp)!
