Thank you very much for visiting
Doctor Ben's Scale Consortium .
of these products are created directly from the
workbench of NMRA National Award
Winning Dioramas by Richard E. (Ben) Bendever. I have used these products and
techniques for all the years that I have
cherished building scale model dioramas. And now I share my deepest modeling
secrets with you. I hope that you will find them as helpful and useful as I have
for these past years.
Doctor Ben's Handy Blade
Tools #5720 (Metal), #5721 (Plastic), & #5722 (Both Tools)
While I am creating much of the
modeling that I do from day to day, I seem to always have a single
edge razor blade in my hand. As humans, we are creatures of habit and we are all
drawn to what feels natural &
comfortable to us. I will state that yes, I do use X-acto© knifes & blades,
but the tips seem to always break off and they are so darn expensive. How many
tiles while you are sitting at your workbench & the X-acto© knife either slips
of your hand or rolls off of your bench because you've bumped it making space
for something else? I've been very fortunate to never be ?stabbed? by the knife
on the way down, but I have heard some real horror stories!
So, as I initially stated, I'm always
using a single edge razor blade for much of my scale modeling. This too is a
problem for me in that I break out a brand new razor blade to use it once or
twice & it disappears into the clutter of my workbench and so I break out still
another new single edge razor blade. When I finally get disgusted enough to
clean up my workbench, well, you get the story, I have a plethora of open single
edge razor blades from by bad modeling
Which is why we offer these Handy
Blade Tools with plastic & metal blades in many neon colors-one for each
day of the week if necessary.
For me, I remember colors and numbers, but not faces. I'll remember which color
Handy Blade tool has the cleanest & sharpest blade and which one that I've been
using to carve dental stone. Have fun & tell you friends about this great tool!
