I’ll bet that when you think of Xuron® tools, a few well-known and well-used tools come to mind. Today let’s expand your view of what’s available and hone in on a couple possibly lesser known tools to help you bend and form wire, photo-etch, and a variety of materials. These pliers, and all Xuron® tools are available through local hobby shops.
Recently we’ve had a few questions from customers asking how to replace springs on their tools and how to keep them (tools) cleaned and well maintained. I thought I’d share……
Metal Earth® makes very detailed 3D etched models that are assembled using a few tools and nothing else. One of our manufacturing staff, Tony Bonti, is an avid model builder (and a member of the Southern Maine Scale Modelers) and has recently been testing a few Xuron® tools while building these models.
Let’s face it, if you’re like most scale modelers you’re someone inclined to be a hoarder. Your stash of kits is likely to consist of more kits than you could ever build in your lifetime, maybe even two! This propensity to acquire more isn’t just limited to model kits. It also applies to scale modeling tools and everything related.
For all hobbyists, tools are an important part of the creative process. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced scale model builder, it’s more enjoyable when you have the right tool for the task at hand. When your basic modeling tools can be found in one Xuron® Tool Kit, that’s even better.
