Tool Tip: Economy Flush Cutters

 

For $5 you can get yourself a decent set of flush cutters

 

Recently, during my nightly wandering of Wal*mart, while pulling freight to the floor for the stockers, I noticed a set of flush cutters for $5. If you're not familiar with flush cutters, here's a short description.

 

Fassett Studios Scale Rulers and Drafting Triangles

Available for N, HO, S, & O

 

Fassett Studios makes some etched acrylic rulers and drafting triangles, with scale measurements.

 

I discovered these neat products through a post on Model Trains Weathered.  All of the measuring tools are laser cut acrylic.  Tom (Fassett Studios) sent me drafting triangles in two sizes in HO scale, plus N, S, O, 1/72nd and 1/16".  He also sent an HO scale 6" ruler.

 

The tools are great, and within minutes came in handy.  Along with the tools he sent me a corrugated sheet die (which will be reviewed separately), and the HO ruler allowed me to cut rough 4' x 8' sheets.
