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.
Micro-Shear® Flush Cutters, how do you choose the right one?
In the last few years we’ve seen more and more brick-and-mortar stores closing. This has left a significant hole in the jewelry community. Jewelers have fewer resources and less access to knowledgeable people. We’ve been fielding more and more phone calls asking for help choosing the right tool for the job.
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.
Tips, techniques and commentary from Master Model Railroader Tom Piccirillo
Model builders have never before enjoyed such a diverse assortment of materials for duplicating full-size materials in miniature.
The scale modeler can now obtain corrugated metal, honeycomb sheet and etched materials in the precise sizes and contours needed for model construction, but using old-world tools to trim these materials to size just won’t “cut-it.”
We all look forward to turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. Many of us make our list of thankfuls and share our blessings. Here at Xuron Corporation November reminds us of our humble beginnings and emphasizes the incredible growth we have developed over the years.
