|Perma-Grit Tools have been demonstrating
and exhibiting their range of products at major Dolls House and
Miniaturist shows in the U.K. for over 12 years. In that time,
they have gained a reputation for producing quality tools that
are easy to use on the wide range of materials used in this hobby.
Many of the professional miniaturist model builders now use them,
and have given the tools excellent reviews in the magazines. The
tools are used and recommended by the "Dolls House Holidays” where
miniaturists learn to build their own dolls house.
“Are there any miniaturists out there that are not interested
in tools? These powerful sanding tools have been available for
some time, but many people have yet to discover them. Once tried,
I think you will find yourself slowly building up a set.”
Pat Cutforth in DOLLS HOUSE WORLD.
Perma-Grit Tools have been used by Woodcarvers
and Sculptors for over 17 years. They will cut, sand and shape
all woods and stone without loading up. The Riffler and Needle
files have proved popular because they remove material much
quicker than conventional ones. Also, as they are an abrasive,
they will cut in any direction. This can be particularly useful
when working in tight areas etc. There have been many reviews
in U.K. magazines:
“The range of size and shapes of these files is
well suited to all but the largest scale of carvings. They cut
cleanly in any direction on a wide variety of timbers, and the
random distribution of the grit gives a smooth, sand papered
type finish, rather than ridged, filed or rasped effect. The
flexible sanding strip is especially interesting to woodcarvers.
It can easily be cut, bent or stuck onto shaped pieces of wood,
making abrasive tools to get in where other tools cannot go.
I am sure most carvers will find some useful and economical
additions to their tool kits.”
David Tippey in WOODCARVING magazine.
