Shell Forming and Micro Raising Combined Workshop Kits (Used)
This kit combines the shell forming and raising tools but eliminates the extras (saw frame, file, rulers, etc) from the Shell Forming Workshop Kit.
These kits are in mint condition, and all hammers and stakes will be freshly polished. Two of the forming hammers are from Betty’s workshops - the LH1 & LH4.5, both are no longer being manufactured. Speaking of Betty Helen Longhi, she used many portions of these kits when we spent years on the road teaching together. It’s a little bit of history. So, as you order a kit, I will polish up the hammers and stakes before we ship it.
Now the deets.
