Personal clay tools
cutter, wire and new handles

I had some bad quality Clay Ribbon Cutters and was tired they bended also a cutter wire but with useless handles and this was why I got going.

You can read more in the wee blog:

1. Clay cutter and wire.
2. Cutter shaped from recycled car wind screen washer.
3. Spin, spin, spin.
4. Mounting wire.
5. Handle for existing tools.
6. Tools in the box.

Hope this can inspire,

Cool Tools, Mads!

Thanks for the idea of the stainless steel wire. I’ll be saving my old ones from now on!

Great tools as always! That stainless wire can also be used to burn in lines on the lathe.

Very nice tools and really a god idea using parts of old car screen wipers.

From time to time I make sculptures from soapstone, limestone, ytong or wood. For developing my ideas I sometimes make smaller models from Plastilin. So I will copy your tools because they are really useful for Plastilin too.

Thanks a lot for sharing!

Jim, yes I so agree the once we make are soo much bigger joy to use and I find that beautiful, this basic joy of creating we seems to have.
Philip, clayilant at least…
Ken, smiles thanks, I think I find it hard to hide my joy.
Muesli, (how did you come up with that name) so happy if it can be useful, for me the greatest joy of a post or a blog are when some one can use it.
Grizz, smokey (what have you been smoking, laughs).
BKO, I have one for the lathe too, and actually went and made handles for it after your comments, thanks.
Lew, smiles I also have a really long list of want to do projects, life is way too short and that’s wonderful.
