      Thanks for your help, I want to make necklaces with semiprecious stones and couldnt see a bead reamer or 49 beadalon wire, have I missed it or is there another site anyone knows of that sells these? Ideally I want to get as much as poss from 1 site to save postage.

          The lovely Graham has a good selection at http://shop1.actinicexpress.co.uk/sh...orks/index.php
          http://www.gjbeads.co.uk/ is another one who has most of the threads and accessories you will need.

            Look back on the threads and you will see that those of us that work hard with plyers ect dont spend a lot. I make 200+ cheap earrings a week, all with plyers bought from car boot and £1 stalls.
            I buy ex GPO tools fantastic quality,if I can find them.
            If you find a tool that you use a lot then buy box hinged units they will last a lifetime and cost you about £10
