I was in the basement the other day going through some old stuff and I came across a box of things that I used to use in my jewelry business. I guess I should put some of those things up for sale on eBay or something or sell it to some of my old jewelry trade friends – those few who are still in the business that is!
It’s funny, I’ll bet that those of you who’ve never seen a jeweler at work have no idea what kind of tools we work with, but you’d probably be surprise at just how many dental tools we use. In fact quite a few of the tools that I used when I did designs on pieces of gold manually with a spinning diamond (diamond cutting) I did with one of those dental foredom drills! I guess it’s kind of like a Dremel drill but more powerful. Anyway … the jewelery tool suppliers likely bought some of their supplies from discount dental equipment suppliers because I swear 25% to 50% of the tools and products that jewelers use are the same ones that dentists use too.
I bet you never thought that nice teeth and beautiful jewelery had something in common? LOL
Now what should I do with my old “jewelry” equipment?
