What can you make?
The only limitation is your imagination. From indoor decorative items such as candle holders, log holders and clocks to outdoor and garden items. Planters, plant supports, log burners and gates can all benefit from the use of the tools. They’re also great for making brackets for use around the house, garage and outside.
There are complete workshop packages available along with a selected number of individual tools. This means they are great to use anywhere you can fit a small table or workbench. Ideal indoors in the conservatory or in the shed and garage.
All you need is some readily available mild steel and rivets to start making wonderful and unique creations. To help you get started there are design sheets which show you step by step how to make a certain project, then you’re ready to start making in minutes! Also great as a workshop tool they appeal to a large and diverse range of people from crafters to anyone wanting to start their own businesses, a business in a box.
