Jon Michael Route is quite well known for his masterful craftsmanship working with copper, brass, aluminum, patinas, and rich surface embellishment techniques. Well, recently, I was checking out his website and I noticed that he had added a category "tool sale." It seems that Jack has decided to sell off a portion of his jewelry-making equipment including: kilns, a beautiful watchmaker/jewelers bench, acetylene and oxygen tanks, and a large casting arm (I purchased the vigor rectifier this morning), etc. These are the moments I (and I'm sure others) wait for. So, don't wait too long and take advantage of this opportunity to purchase some wonderful tools from a charming metalsmith.
