Here are some of the tools Dan has made for me for my Bond.
At the top are two claw weights made from forks, fishing weights and s-hooks. Across the bottom there are 2 claw weights made from forks and rolls of pennies. Then 2 transfer tools–my bunny tools for his ‘hunny bunny’ 😉 –made from bobby pins (hairpins), the handles from the forks at the top and PermaPoxy Multi-Metal Epoxy which can be found in the automotive department–this is AWESOME stuff!). And, lastly, a needle selector made from a wide tooth comb that happened to have teeth spaced exactly 8mm apart.
We made the fishing weights first but I found I actually prefer using the penny roll ones. They are slightly heavier and because they are solid I find them easier to move around.
Thanks to Cynthia for reminding me. You should paint or coat the fishing weights so that you don’t have to worry about handling lead. I wanted to get a pic of them uncoated so that people could see what they look like in the store.
