I got a drill press today, and have a grinder and belt sander coming next week. I will start making lock picks again soon.

I'm set up to do basic jewelry work in my home now. I have most of my important hand tools, micromotor, and a small torch. So far I have just done some work on the pieces I started in the jewelry class at my school. It's good to have my own bench and tools here, even if it is just a small fraction of the workshop I had in the US.

Saturday I went to a jewelry tool store called Jin Bao Shan, in Taipei. I bought a torch, soldering stuff, and other random small tools. It's not Rio Grande, but they seem to have everything I need for now. I'll be going here again in a week or two
They had a fairly good selection of hammers and stakes.
Draw plates, hammers, and rubber wheels in the little drawers.
Decent selection of rubber wheels. I just wish they all listed the brand name rather than just which country they are from.
A bench set up for demonstrations.
One part of the store was tools, the other part of the store was display and packaging stuff.
