Tool Time Tuesday – Using and Comparing Corrugating mills

I know it has been a long time since I have made any videos or posts here on my blog. There are many reasons for that. As you can see, my blog has moved. My previous host shut down their services and I lost all of my images. I have been working for weeks on getting them all loaded again. But there were more than 1,000 of them, so it is taking a long time. Doing this has been encouraging and discouraging all at the same time. It is so frustrating to have to locate the images, reload them, and enter all their information. But my blog is so full of so much good material and information that I don’t want it to just go away. So I am working on it.

Another reason is that I have just had a very difficult time emotionally and it has taken its toll on my metal work, to the point that even my husband was starting to think that I should just sell everything and be done with metals and jewelry. I have to admit, there would be a lot of relief that would come with that. But I really don’t want to. So I have had to work through all of that. Luckily, I really am starting to get back to things again. I am excited to make jewelry again. I am working hard on my book again. I am working on my blog again. I am making videos again. And it feels GOOD! So please plan on seeing more from me soon.

Speaking of videos. Here is a video that was requested. A friend had bought a micro fold break and didn’t know how to use it and asked if I could help her. I figured it might help a lot of people, so I decided to show you quickly about the Bonny Doon Micro fold break and compare that with my Durston Corrugating mill. Plan on seeing some fun things with great textures from me soon. 🙂

    Hello Melissa – I just wanted to say that your Tool Time Tuesday videos have been a big inspiration to me.
    I got the courage to buy a hydraulic press from Potter USA and your Tube Setting video is second to none.
    I am very glad that you are back with Tool Time Tuesday.
    Best regards, Bronwyn

    Glad to see you’re back!! I enjoy reading all that you post and you were the one that opened up the world of metalsmithing to me when you taught me how to solder. You were an excellent and patient teacher. I encourage you to keep on with it. Metalsmithing has really made a difference in my life- so your life has had a major impact on mine. You are teaching skills that further others in their creative journey, which helps them to unlock parts of their selves they never knew existed. I believe in you, Melissa! Hugs!!
