The one that I love is Lee Valley. Micro Mark is more for modeling in smaller sizes but for toy making they have tool that are small and accurate to do those fine cuts that are needed in toymaking. - Don

Hi to whoever posted about the guitar building art. I don't know what happened but the post disappeared when I clicked on the link to the guitar site. Could you please add the post again? The info was very useful.

Don, FYI- CherryTreeToys is good but craftparts.com is much cheaper with the 2" treaded dual wheels pack of 20 for $13.00. That's 65 cents each. A pack of  4 is $3.25 and that's 87 cents each. A pack of 100 dual wheels is only $57.00 or 57 cents each. I buy all my wheels from them and the workmanship on the wheels is absolutely perfect. I have always been super pleased with the hardwoods used on their wheels. All the ones that I have purchased have been smooth as glass. Their service is great and the shipping costs are some of the most reasonable with fast delivery.

Thanks for re-posting the guitar guys link. My favorite link to their finishing supplies page. There is some very useful information there about spray can paints and super high gloss finishes.

Looking for a Canadian supplier for wood parts and wheels ... try http://www.Stockade.ca
Here's an example of their pricing.
2" x 3/4" Treaded Wheel $0.55 each - Qty 25-99 = $0.495 each - Qty 100+ = $0.44 each.
Therefore an order of 100 pieces costs $44.00 Canadian.
Normally I order my various wheel sizes at 100 at a time in order to get the price break.
Their delivery charges to me in Canada are quite reasonable, around $7.00 CDN.
I ask for pickup service, which means I do not have to be home to receive the delivery.
The post office puts a note in my mailbox telling me that a package has been received and is available for pickup at my local post office.
They do ship to the US - but check the shipping charges prior to completing your order.
Unfortunately for me, when I order wheels from US suppliers, many times the shipping costs and duty are higher that the cost of the items I have ordered.

   The shipping here in the states is getting outrageous John clued me into the supplier that he uses and I am going to give them a shot.
   Udie I think that there should be a forum for the posting of the places that we can find paints, and parts and the prices posted so that members of the forum can check them out and compare with shops and stores in their area. - Don
