Pyrography, with Mandy Staples

Instead of our usual carving night, we were treated to a quick talk and then a hands on demonstration to pyrography with Mandy Staples. It was a great night; with a lot of people interested in learning more. Mandy was very enthusiastic and a great teacher.

Please add comments below; on what you thought of the night.

Uk workshop website

I have been looking at possibly buying a band saw recently! A site, I have been finding really useful is the UK workshop website. It has lots of reviews, forums and a section to buy and sell tools.


Well worth a look.

Price comparison.

I just bought a flexcut tool roll from tyzacktools - http://www.tyzacktools.com/products/335-flexcut-19-piece-pocket-tool-roll-476213.aspx. The price was £15.81 which included £2.00 shipping. I found them pleasant to deal with and a lot cheaper than the bigger shops. An example, for the same product in another shop would cost me £20.29, the product is a great deal more expensive and purchases under £50 cost £5 in postage!

So my conclusion, if you need extra flexcut items tyzack are worth trying.
