So are those filed rip or crosscut? :) You really have quite a miniature tool set built. Is there a market for these for models and such or do you just do it for fun?

Wow. Guess they would come in handy for small projects. Wonder if the planes work!

Thanks guys. I have some of each,Tim – 34teeth / inch and 42 teeth / inch. I have standing requests for my miniatures – more than I can accomodate. I call my line “Pocket Jewelry for the Well Dressed”. Everything I build works; that’s the whole point. I also build Desktop Models and static displays. Some see them as fitting gifts for a special someone in the crafts, etc. Thanks for your interest. Ralph

More than you can accommodate sounds like a business reason for taking on an apprentice or partner. Yeah headaches for sure, but lots of potential.

Just great^&%$#! Now I have to grow my own miniature trees for lumber. On top of that I will now have to build a 10” long workbench with a 3” tall leg vise.

Thanks Tim. Over the years I have had all kinds of help. Currently my son is working with me. Maybe some day he will build a business, but every time I “go into business” it becomes too much like confining work. Actually redsled, wood presents significant problems. In order to maintain scale miniature appearances, I’ve had to use some exotic woods with tight grain for handles. And by the way, we are currently working on a miniature carpenter’s bench and tool box / board for display reasons. Ralph
