As always my sweet family gets me fun things for the basement. Let's see what we got this year!
First a new Olfa mat, much larger than the others that I have and perfect for the construction workbench.
Needle files! I got two packs...but one is lost somewhere in the wrapping paper chaos upstairs. I needed these really bad.
My daughter gave me two new X-acto knives. Mine are wearing out.
Green and black felt. I use felt for lots of things; from keep models from scratching, to covering the underneath of a display, to small item photo backdrops.
Finally, a new Dremel tool. My old one is dead after 25 years of hard work. The battery operated one I got a few years ago just never made the cut. So I'm glad to get a new one.
Cutting tools! Always handy with a new Dremel!
Wow! I'm so happy! I've always wanted a Panavise...now I have one. There is a cheap, green knock-off at my desk, but its just not the same. I'll get much use out of it.
And a clamping base so I can move it around or take it to the layout.
Lastly, a present for me. My On2 Gilpin Tram Car Kit from Grandt Line came in. Surely I can get time to assemble it this week.
