    Just learning chasing and repousse in my metalsmithing class. As part of the project we were instructed to make tools. I made 8 (2 lining, 2 pushing, 2 planishing, 1 undercut and 1 curved liner) and though my tools look reasonably good for a first attempt, I have not been happy with their performance and they left me frustrated. In class we have one set of Ms. Lansford’s tools referenced in the video. OMG! Using her tools has made all the difference in both my enjoyment and success, so much so that I purchase a slightly used set (sorry I could not afford a new set). Ms. Landsford has taken care to design what do seem like the only 8 tools one would need. They are an invaluable set of tools, I just wish they were a bit more affordable for students and others who are just learning chasing and repousse techniques.

    can these be used on rings to achieved that hammer textured ring band look or do you have another similar tool other than a hammer? i make rings with delicate and unique shapes that need a hammer texture in certain areas only.. using a hammer is too big for tight corners etc.
