Seeing some of the recent build threads here, which showed handiwork done with various metal (brass, aluminum) parts, got me to thinking that we should have a dedicated thread that lists all of the general tools and equipment required for anyone wanting to do some of the same work themselves.
For example, I’ve got somewhere in the range of 8-10 unbuilt P1/P2 kits with at least two if not more of those I’d like to have made into full hero units. Thing is, I know with the limited tools on hand (X-acto knife, Dremel, no saws to speak of) I likely don’t have what I need to actually do what I’ve seen others do.
Looking at the awesome builds some of you have done, seeing all those hand-made metal parts seems a little daunting to someone who has no experience. So, to those of us who have personal hands-on experience working with metals for their own prop projects, what’s on your lists of what is required for that sort of work?
