    Needle nosed pliers are great for holding a delicate paper part and controlling the 'break' or fold of a tab. The main part is held firm and flat, while the pliers grip the tab much like a bending break. A twist of the wrist and the crease is clean and crisp. (Illustrated in Tips and Techniques)

    Leather tooling tools are also useful in cardmodelling. The spoon end, hook end, and pointed end have many applications. ( Illustrated inTips and Techniques)

    Twist of the wrist? That reminds me, I must see if the Yamaha site has anything new motorcycle-wise.....
