Jin's figure customizing tool list

Recommended Posts

I answer a lot of emails each week and one of the most popular questions is "What tools do you suggest for customizing?" Well here's a list of my 'essentials', tools that I pick up every day to make my customs and couldn't properly customize without. These are the -exact- tools I use, down to the specific brand in most cases. For beginning customizers or seasoned pro's who just want to see what I use, here you go.

OH, MY SWEET POWERFUL GOD!!!

 

This is the most important guide in the history of customization, since Moses came down the mountain with the 10 Commandments!!! @notworthy@

 

LOL!

 

Thank Jin! This will be EXTREMELY useful!

 

Merry X-Mas!

Jin, I just want to thank you. I appreciate you putting this list up and endorsing the Dremel Stylus. I'd seen it before but wasn't sure about it due to it being wireless. I knew that a wireless dremel would lack torch and so I figured it wouldn't be as useful. When I saw you used it I had to try it and so I went and picked one up. Well, it's definitely not as efficient when it comes to cutting thick plastic, but it makes up for it in detail! It has allowed me to sand apoxie 90 times faster without having to worry about chipping the sculpt. If you wouldn't have posted this, I would have never tried it. So from one customizer to another, thanks boss. Keep doing what your doing. You help make our work that much better and I sincerely appreciate it.

Welcome! Remember it's not an end-all-buy-only-these list. THis is just the stuff I use and consider important in my opinion.

It's great! Once charged stays charged for a while.

Awesome, and yeah, that's why I put " This is not a cut-through-plywood, carve granite, and saw through screwdrivers type of machine like the corded ones." because while it's strong, it's a precision tool, not a cut-wood-for-a-birdhouse tool. Glad it works for you!

10 years of frustration will soon be over once I get a close-quarters hacksaw! I had no idea there was such a thing!
