    Seems to be the week for new tools

    I just had to buy this press for the patent waterproof cases. While it doesn't do anything I can't already do - with the name and cool industrial styling, it'll go on display (and it will make life a little easier)

    Cool. What about some action shots?

    Well, it is a very simple tool - but I'll take a couple of photos of it being used.

    Great, trim

    I've been assembling a few tools over the past few years. Not adept enough to really go into the mechanism, but it's nice to have proper pin removal tools as well as a crystal remover and caseback tool.

    Very nice buy.
    I've never seen one of these Roamer presses before, this one has
    ended up where it belongs. Looks like a very good quality tool.

    Hi Kris,

    Nice looking press! I saw this and thought of you... but like the press, I guess you dont really need a another 'container'

    That's been on there for ages. I'm waiting for him to drop the price because I have no other excuse for needing it either.
