"Just Add Creativity...."™

Sundries - Tweezers, Cutters, Pliers, Hammers, Scissors, Mandrels, Gadgets, Misc Tools & Glue

We endeavour to retail good quality tools at affordable prices. Where stated, pliers and cutters are assembled using box joints, which ensure that the jaws remain parallel at all times, vital when precision is important.
Less expensive tools use lap joints whose jaws may not meet exactly.

Look in the sundries section for other bead making accessories.

Tube GS-Hypo Cement
Tube GS-Hypo cement with bead tip precision appicator.G-S Hypo Cement was invented in 1930's for use in the watchmaking and jewelry repair industries. It is a combination fine precision tool and a clear drying, medium-strength cement that will not damage surfaces. The cement is ideal for jewelry, beads, plastic, glass, metal, ceramics, painted or sealed woods and other non-porous surfaces. This is a no-waste product that is ideal for many applications. Full use of the precision applicator tip is maintained by inserting the cap wire into the tube when not in use, and by cleaning excess drops from the outside of the applicator with rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover. This is not an "instant glue." It becomes tacky in 10 - 15 seconds, allows parts to be adjusted, sets in 10 to 15 minutes and fully dries in about an hour. The cement will not bond fingers, and has a slight odor that dissipates quickly. Great for beading, model making, miniatures, fine screw locking, sealing knots, precision waterproof sealing, precision repairs, optical and technical applications, crafts and hobbies. Contains 9ml (1/3 Fluid ounce). Manufacturer's user guide is available as PDF here.
