Old Model Tool Shop

Good tools for anyone who wants to get into scratchbuilding are hard to find and no one really specialises in quality scratchbuilding tools for model railroaders.

So here at Model Trains ‘n Things we’ve decided to do something about that. We’re looking for reliable suppliers who can supply us with scratchbuilding tools that we can sell to you at a reasonable cost. And we already run online stores under the GeekyGifts.com.au and other brands so we know how to look after our customers and provide the service that you would expect from a normal hobby shop.

Please note – we will only ship within Australia and postage is always FREE.

It comes with 6 interchangeable heads made from Nickel Chrome Steel that fit neatly into the top of the hand piece.
