Purchasing Jewelry Making Tools and Materials

Jewelry Making Tools and Materials
Imported jewelry making tools and materials from the United States!  These tools may be available in Malaysia though I couldn't find them, or they are at least three times more expensive. Thanks Crystal Chen-Tan so much for bringing them back for me, words can't describe how thankful I am!!! 

P/S Many Malaysian crafters said riveting hammer can be found in any hardware store, truth is, none of the hardware store carries it, not even ACE hardware. I've got my Rivet Hammer-square Face 1/2in from Amazon.

All metals and Rubber Bench Block from Rio Grande, everything else from Amazon:
EuroTool Magnesia Soldering Block 6" X 3" X 1.5"
Eurotool EuroPunch 1.25mm Round Hole Punch Pliers for Sheet Metal
Metal Hole Punch Pliers 1.8mm
Eurotool Third Hand With Tweezers - HOL-165.00
