Okay, I may not have been particularly thorough in my searching the forum, but I read a lot about pin vice's and rarely see any photos of them. I've accumulated enough material that I'd like to begin prepping&learning. I figure this will be one of those sideline hobbies whereby I can just pick and peck along in quiet solitude and hopefully fairly low expense as I build skills. Would those who use pin vices recommend or post a photo with some dimensions of their vices? I'm sure this is one of those situations where they can be too small or too big. Also, I have read about body piercing needles, hypodermic needles and sewing machine needles. Are there other such things I should be on the lookout for? Thank you, Kato
I've been using hypodermic needles in my pin vices for fossil prep which work GREAT. And maybe I've re-invented the wheel here, but I just discovered body-piercing needles! These are so much better and cheaper! $12.99 for a multi-size pack on Amazon. The shafts are much longer, too, which is great. Easier to acquire by most, also. Thought I'd share. Here's the $12.99 mixed-size pack I got.
