Just my 2c

I bought an Etchmate 3C (the polymer replacement for the metal Etchmate) out of desperation...I needed something and this is all the LHS had besides the Tamiya PE pliers (wasnt sure about those...) and I have to give it a 7 out of possible 10 score. The very first time I used it, I snapped a chunk out of the little folding tool they give you to use instead of a razor blade. That said, its handled small and medium sized PE without any issues.

Hi together,

for my "bending jobs" I use a 4" Mk IV RTH (Rotating Tool Head) Workstation from TheSmallShop (http://thesmallshop.com/index.php?ma...=index&cPath=2), but even for really long parts. The most of the little parts are bend with little tongs and tweezers or even with my fingers.

Best from germany
