So, you're a jeweler or metalsmith about to be stranded on a desert island. You can bring only one tool. (Oh yeah, the island has electricity). What tool do you bring?

If you were Andy Cooperman you’d most likely bring your Flexible Shaft machine. It may be the most versatile tool at the bench. And yet for many makers it is the most underutilized and least understood.

Here’s your chance to gain a deeper understanding of this marvelous tool and expand your vocabulary of flexible shaft techniques and applications.  This one-day, demonstration-only workshop will cover the basic machine itself and discuss the use of burrs, bits, grinding, shaping, finishing and polishing aids and various hand pieces.  Everything from Abrasives to Zam. Expect some eye opening innovative tricks as well. All levels.

Tool kits available, cash or check payable to instructor. Bur Kit $15, Abrasive Kit $10
