    Imuya (11 maand(en) geleden) #21720456Haha I used to build arcade sticks so I'm familiar with tools. Just... wood, not plastics and metals lmao.

    Sounds like an interesting job, I bet that experience has helped a lot. As well as the attention to detail you need and craftsmanship :)

    I think plastic is probably pretty similar to wood with a lot of tool applications, but metal is a totally different beast. xD

    Yep, thats what the post is here for. I'm glad it was useful to you :)

    JoniVera (11 maand(en) geleden) #21717730Harbor Freight is a great place half of these. :)
    Might I suggest a Dremel handheld drill and sanding sticks/steel files ?


    Yep, if one is near you. There aren't too many near me. If you take good care of you're tools then Harbor Freight is fine, but usually their quality is sub-par to go along with the low prices. :/

    As far as the Dermal drill goes, pretty sure what you're suggesting is exactly what I already have listed up there :) as well as a link to the product on ebay. Same with the steel files / grinders as some places call them.

    If you mean something different by sanding sticks let me know. Normally sand paper is best because its easier to maneuver the kit's surface and squeeze between small areas.

    Thanks though!

    monkry (11 maand(en) geleden) #21717170YES!
    ...but later in the future when I have more more more space, more time and money, which won't happen in near future


    Lol, well I hope it helps in the future then. You can add the linked items to wishlists on those sites, would make it easier in the future to find the tools.

    Imuya (11 maand(en) geleden) #21711617I recently made the potential mistake f buying piano wire (18swg) to pin the damn thing and give it something to attach to the base but goddamn can I not cut through it, going shopping tomorrow to find a carbide saw for my hacksaw, I hear that can get through it.
    I'm glad this post is here, I completely forgot about the stuff that evens out the paint.

    Fallen-Cloud (11 maand(en) geleden) #21711613Thank you! I'm very fortunate to have this room and a father who is great at building things. (As he built my working desk.) I only have the space due to still living with my parents - and we moved into this new house just last year, until then I had a tiny bedroom with just enough space for a bed, a couch and a closet for my clothes. ^^'
    I hope to actually make a blog post about the kit once I've got everything ready. I love drawing and sculpting, so painting a sculpture seems amazing. =)


    That sounds great, its good you have more space now. Living in a very small space isn't comfortable at all.

    I hope you get around to making your blog, people really like to see gks. Its nice to get feedback as well from others with the same hobby.
