Hi, I'm not a model maker but joined the forum anyway as it contains many fellow metal workers who I can learn from. I am a toolmaker who makes new tools for silversmiths and tinsmiths e.g. planishing stakes, snarling irons etc. I use my lathes, mills etc to make tooling for my homemade hydraulic press.

Hi Bob also a toolmaker (retired) I was bought a day course on jewelry making and found it enlightening and have made a few things since. Also a few tools and jigs were needed and found that some tooling can be made to make jewelry making easier.






I would also like to make a rolling mill and a hydraulic press for embossing etc.

I have a top of the range rolling mill but i'm limited by its max opening of 6mm so I may make a bigger one. I like your punch jig, i may copy that idea but modify it to work under a fly press, one of my fave workshop tools.
