That's a good thing - I was thinking of recycling a flexi-lamp into a third hand and just the other day I was tossing around ideas for a transportable work surface/area.

I have my tool all thought up. But, I did have a question. I have seen this tool made by a company but the cost is kind of high. So, I know I can do it cheaper and the size I want not what they want. Is that legal for the campaign?

Been done and been using it:



Hey Scott, I like that bender....sharp!

Jim, I'm pretty sure if it's a tool for a modeling purpose, it's fair game for this campaign....even better if you're able to make some company's tool better/cheaper.

Sweet...I had the idea and then saw that somebody makes it. Then thought darn. Now I am back in the running.

Now, I just need to get inspired to actually make it.

Plamski and Klemen,

I am glad you both decided to add your projects to the campaign. Don't forget to go over to ModelGeek and enlist in the Build-A-Tool II campaign. That way you will get credit for your entry and earn the ribbon as well.
