    I've recently switched to a water mist type extinguisher - which was recommended to me by a firefighter my husband knows. Apparently it's the best broad spectrum option now. I previously had a foam...

    Have you tried W J Sutton? https://www.925jewellery.co.uk/ - good prices and a pretty wide range - not always using the same chain names though, so it takes a bit of ploughing through to find what...

    I do the vast majority of my work by hand (including most drilling), but it might be helpful to add here that I have an SR and a Marathon Micromotor (couldn't afford the Foredom!). I don't think I've...
