Received my two new beading tools (1/8" and 1/4" ) and went out and tried to use them to make some mason jar lids. The first attempt was fantastically easy. I watched some of Dave's videos before beading.
I am impressed with the customer service fro Dave from inquiry through to shipping and the fine quality of the tools..
I will hopefully try to get other beading tools in the future, once management (my wife) approves the purchase.
Thanks Dave I appreciate all your help and service.

Easy on-line ordering. Received items very quickly. Tools exactly as described. Called company with a question about one of the items. Left a message and received call back from the company owner very shortly thereafter. Very impressed with the customer care and service.

I am learning to use the beading tools and really like them. With the exception of the smallest one I ordered I am able to make pretty good beads already, The other one will take some time, but is coming along.

I was first introduced to the D-Way beading tools at a demonstration by Harvey Meyer. I had tried the Sorby beading tools and found that I could turn better beads with a spindle gouge. After Harvey's demonstration I knew I had to have these beading tools so I bought the 1/8 and 3/16 tools. They make perfect beads every time, the same size every time. So my next purchase was the 1/4 and the 3/8. Now I can make beads consistently the same size with ease. I would recommend these tools to everyone. The service from Dave was great, I received the tools two days after I ordered them.

I have struggled for years with cutting small uniform beads and just about gave up. I ordered the 3/32" and 3/16" tools to try and now I'm sold! It really is quick and easy to lay out and complete a pattern of precise, professional looking beads with these tools. I found that by gently scribing your bead pattern first then going back to finish them produces more uniform results than completing each bead individually. Try it and I'm confident you will be impressed too. Thanks, Dave and look for my order soon to get the other sizes.
